A post shared by HSH Princess Charlene (@hshprincesscharlene) on

This was her first post since the end of July when she shared a photo of Jacques and Gabriella on the beach.

The Princess of Monaco mostly shares photos of her twins on her account alongside some of the events she undertakes. But ever the proud mum, her children take centre stage. She has had an account since late 2017.

Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella were born on 10 December 2014 at the Princess Grace Hospital Centre in Monaco. Gabriella was born two minutes before her brother, but due to Monaco’s succession laws of male-preference primogeniture, Jacques is first in line to the Monegasque throne and is the Hereditary Prince of Monaco.

The twins have two older half-siblings through their father’s previous relationships: Jazmin (b. 1992) and Alexandre (b. 2003). Since the Prince was not married to the mothers of his two older children, they are not in the line of succession and do not hold any titles.
