Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco have welcomed two babies into the world – a girl called Gabriella, born at 5.04pm on Wednesday, and a boy, Jacques, at 5.06pm, both by c-section.
But, because he is a boy, little Jacques is officially next in line for the Monaco throne, even though Gabriella was born first.
Still, big congratulations to the royal couple. The babies are the first twins in the line of royalty, which was established in the 13th century.
Prince Albert, who is the son of the late princess Grace Kelly, has two children from former relationships, but because they were born out of wedlock, they are not eligible for the throne. Fortunately for them, they are still eligible for a share of Prince Albert’s one BILLION dollar fortune. Excellent consolation prize.
