Fans of the royal family of Monaco have nothing to complain about, as Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene surprised their followers on social media with a new photograph of their children — Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.
The gorgeous picture showed the 5-year-old twins on their first day of the new school year standing in front of Stella School.
In the photo, Princess Gabriella appears to be gently tucking her brother’s hair behind his ears.
This is the first time that the young royals are back to school after staying at home for half a year as a result of the ongoing pandemic crisis.
Titled with “Back to school for Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella,” the snap quickly gathered thousands of likes and numerous positive comments.
However, the majority of the fans were mostly impressed by the way Gabriella was caring about her twin.
One excited supporter stated, “Happy back to school to these two beautiful children, great tenderness between brother and sister,” while another follower also praised the twins: “They are cute, and what protective gestures Princess Gabriella always has for her brother.”
The new picture of the twins is the first one since July when Princess Charlene posted a snap of the kids from their vacation on her Instagram profile.
Captioned with “Happy Holidays” and a sun emoji, the photograph showed the twins enjoying some family time on the beach.
