Princess Charlene’s adorable twins have once again stolen the hearts of those across the globe as they took on starring roles in the Monaco royal family’s annual Christmas card.

Instead of rallying the adults together for a family snap, Princess Charlene and her husband Prince Albert chose to feature their two children Gabriella and Jacques on the front of the card which is sent out to their adoring fans each year.

The five-year-old twins sat eagerly in front of the elegantly decorated Christmas tree in the beautiful photo with the gold and red baubles glimmering in the light. Gabriella sported a beautiful red frilly dress for the special snap as she cradled her head in her hand.

While her twin brother Jacques dressed casually in a striped jumper and jeans. In the background stood a stunning Christmas tree with piles of presents below.

Meanwhile, the family chose to use the same family photograph for the inside of the card which was featured last year.

Charlene was a picture of elegance and grace in a red long-sleeved gown as she sat in front of the Christmas tree with son Jacques perched on her lap and their pet chihuahua by her side. While Albert stood behind holding little Gabriella’s hand.

“May the peace and joy of the holidays be with you every day in the New Year,” the card read. “We wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2020.”

Photos of the card were shared on social media by royal fan Kat on her Instagram page @katsroyalletters.

“My first Christmas reply from Monaco arrived!” she wrote on the post. “It’s this card from HSR Prince Albert and his wife HSH Charlene with an adorable picture of their twins. So cute!”

Little Gabriella and Jacques are no stranger to the spotlight, often seen out and about with their parents. They are also featured regularly on the couple’s Instagram page with their mum Charlene posting their first school photos to the page last month.
