Royal Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and now our favourite royals are getting into the festive spirit!

Princess Charlene of Monaco has shared an adorable new photo of her twins, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, three, posing for a holiday portrait.

In the snap, which was taken by Vanessa Von Zitzewitz, Prince Albert's children pose in front of the Christmas tree as Gabriella holds onto a figurine and her blonde brother beams behind her.

The twins have grown up so much and look super smart in coordinating outfits with Jacques rocking a crisp white shirt and chinos, and his sister in a bright red dress and bow.

"It's starting to look a lot like Christmas. Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, December 2017," the former Olympic swimmer captioned the pic on her personal Instagram account.

And in a touching gesture, the twins' half-sister Jazmin Grimaldi, 25, liked the photo.

Jazmin, whose mother Tamara Rotolo had a three week fling with the Prince during a holiday to the French Riviera in 1991, first rose to fame at the tender age of 14 when her father publicly acknowledged her as his daughter.

It's been an exciting week for Prince Albert, 42, and Princess Charlene, 39, after they celebrated the twins' third birthday on December 10th.

Prince Albert revealed to People they rung in the milestone birthday with two parties, which were "great fun."

Princess Charlene took on the role of party planner and set up "a birthday party with friends they've made at kids' club or the daycare center and their parents," Albert said.

"That was Friday at the big room in the Oceanographic Museum, at this special display they're having for the holidays," he added.

"Then we had a little celebration up at Roc Agel with Charlene's family, and that‎ was nice."
