Princess Charlene steps out with her eight-year-old twins
The Monaco royals have shared a number of photos towards the end of 2023 as they wrap up what has been a busy year.
Prince Albert was joined by his children for World Cleanup Day 2023 in September. The trio participated in clean-up activities.
Also in September the royal family shared the twins’ first day of school following the European summer. The children wore their red school uniforms and backpacks, posing for photos with their parents.
The children attend François d’Assise-Nicolas Barré school.
In early September the family joined in the traditional Monegasque U Cavagnëtu picnic organised annually by the City Hall of Monaco.
Prince Albert and Princess Charlene married in 2011, having met at a swimming event in 2000 when Charlene, 45, was a competitive swimmer.
They announced their engagement in 2010 ahead of their lavish nuptials.
Rumours of divorce have plagued the pair over the ensuing years, with both royals firmly denying them.
“I find the rumours [about my marriage] tiring and exhausting,” the royal told South Africa’s News24.
“I just don’t understand where these rumours come from,” she added.
