In the absence of Charlene, Prince Albert and their twins, Jacques and Gabriella, participated in the celebrations of Saint Devote, this Thursday, January 27 in Monaco. On the balcony of the princely palace, the two toddlers have provided the show.
One year ago, Charlene of Monaco appeared officially for the last time during the celebrations of Saint Devote, patron saint of Monaco. Still convalescing due to health problems, the princess could not attend this year. This Thursday, January 27, it is thus without their mother, who celebrated her 44th birthday on January 25, that Jacques and Gabriella greeted the Monegasques from the balcony of the Palace. Displaying sweet smiles, the two little blondes performed with brio the traditional exercise alongside their father, Prince Albert II.
All three were elegantly matched, dressed in navy blue and red outfits. Tie for the father and the son, pretty dress with patterns and beaded headband for the young lady. In the absence of Princess Charlene, Caroline of Hanover, the aunt of the twins, took place at their side in the balcony. This is not the first time that the sister-in-law of Charlene of Monaco replaced her on the arm of Prince Albert and his children. The day before, it was she who helped Jacques and Gabriella to set fire to the boat of the Saint-Devote.
Prince Albert justifies the absence of Charlene
Via a press release, the office of Prince Albert was keen to give news of the state of health of his wife. “The convalescence of H.S.H. Princess Charlene is currently continuing in a satisfactory and very encouraging way,” it reads. Then indicating that her “recovery as well as the follow-up of her dental care” should still take a few more weeks. Since her return to the Rock last November, many Monegasques were hoping to see Princess Charlene during the festivities.
