What a proud dad! In December, the twins of Albert II of Monaco (60) and his wife Charlène Wittstock were three years old, they regularly rouse the Monegasques on official dates. Private details about Princess Gabriella (3) and Prince Jacques (3) are reluctant to reveal the royal couple. On the occasion of his 60th birthday, the head of the Grimaldi family now offers an insight into the characters of his two kids.

In an interview with the French newspaper Le Figaro, the prince found sweet words to describe his twins: "We are blessed with children who are a joy every day and are at an incredibly interesting age." Gabriella is physically more after him, but the three-year-old seems to have inherited her from her mother: "She's starting to develop a strong personality and a penchant for independence that looks more like her mother," the 60-year-old said.

Hereditary Prince Jacque, however, is the complete opposite of his lively sister. Albert described him as a quiet child, watching a lot and only now starting to talk more. "In the beginning it was his sister who spoke first," said Albert.
