Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella enjoyed a varied birthday on Saturday, December 10, with a working visit in the morning to the Oceanographic Museum to take part in the send-off for young turtles destined for west Africa.

In the afternoon the youngsters celebrated with young friends at the Prince’s Palace, in the company of TSH Princess Charlene and Prince Albert.

A number of favourite cartoon characters also appeared, including Mario and Kung Fu Panda.

Hands-on father Prince Albert said recently that the twins are very close, adding: “It is amazing for any parent to see their children grow up.”
