A big congratulations is in order for Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco. Princess Charlene gave birth to twins today, December 10: a girl and a boy. Princess Gabriella Thérèse Marie was born first at 5:04 PM Monaco time, with her brother Prince Jacques Honoré Rainier following two minutes later at 5:06 PM Monaco time.
Though Princess Gabriella is two minutes older than her brother, Prince Jacques is the Hereditary Prince due to male primogeniture.
Prince Jacques received the title Marquis of Baux, while Princess Gabriella received the title Countess of Carladès.
The two little heirs were born in Monaco at the maternity ward of Princess Grace Hospital.
Again, huge congratulations to Albert and Charlene. I’m so happy they got a boy and a girl all in one pregnancy. Can’t wait to see photos of the new Prince and Princess.
