The twins are seen in black and white photos in their school uniforms consisting of white collared shirts and dark pants. There were three images in total: one of each twin separately and one of them together.

The Instagram post has garnered over 13,000 likes and over 400 comments with people expressing warm thoughts. Many called the children “beautiful” with some saying Princess Gabriella favours her paternal grandmother, Princess Grace while Prince Jacques looks like his mum.

Back on 10 September, the Princely Palace shared a video of Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques’s first day of school. Princess Charlene told Point de Vue in the past that the twins love school.

“Gabriella even gets up even on Saturdays because she wants to go and is very disappointed when told that there is no school that day,” she explained.

The young Prince and Princess will celebrate their fifth birthday next month.

The Princely Family has spent a couple of weeks in Japan recently for the Enthronement Ceremony of Emperor Naruhito of Japan and the Rugby World Cup where they were seen cheering on Princess Charlene’s home country, South Africa in the semi-final.

South Africa went on to win the Rugby World Cup after defeating England with Prince Albert and the Duke of Sussex in attendance.
