Princess Charlene of Monaco has entranced royal fans after she shared a photo of her children, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, in their official school photo.
The twins, seven, look adorable as they beam in front of a textured background with their heads together, showing their close sibling relationship, in a photo Charlene shared on Instagram on Friday.
She shared the photo with the caption: “Growing so fast” with two heart emojis.
Gabriella and Jacques are the children of Charlene, 44, and her husband, Prince Albert of Monaco, 64 – and last month they were spotted in their red school uniforms for their first day of school at François d’Assise-Nicolas Barré after the summer vacation because their parents took them to private school.

Princess Charlene shared a photo earlier this month in which she strokes a rescue dog at the shelter of the Society of the Protection of Animals (SPA) in Peille.

Royal fans were encouraged to see the devoted mum back in action after a stint in hospital in her native South Africa, where she was recovering from complications from a ‘serious ear, nose and throat infection’ she contracted in May 2021 .
In her absence, Prince Albert did the first day of school alone that year, while Charlene was recovering.
Since her return to public life earlier this year, Princess Charlene appears to be back to normal and takes on various royal duties.
In September, she traveled with her husband to London, where the royal couple attended the Queen’s funeral at Westminster Abbey.
More recently, Charlene visited an animal shelter on Friday in a village between Monaco and the French Alps – which she and Prince Albert had opened a month earlier.
The couple formed a united front and held hands after declaring the animal shelter open in September. Princess Charlene spent nearly a year away from Monaco after being treated for an unspecified condition.
She was pictured petting a rescue dog at the Society of the Protection of Animals (SPA) shelter in Peille. Charlene has been chairman of the animal welfare charity since last month.
The princess – who was announced as SPA’s new president earlier this year – opened the property last month with her husband Prince Albert II.
In the caption, the mother encouraged her 450,000 followers to support their local animal charity.
She wrote: ‘Went to visit the Monaco SPA. Please support a local SPA or animal shelter near you.
‘Thank you. thanks. With all my love.’
Since she has resumed royal duties, the princess has put to bed rumors of a possible divorce or permanent move to Switzerland.
In an interview in the latest edition of the Monaco-Matin newspaper, she said: “I am very happy to be back in Monaco and with my family.”
Princess Charlene says she has been focusing “all her energies” on her children Gabriella and Albert, both seven, since returning to Monaco. Pictured on September 3, 2022

She told the newspaper that she was determined to overcome her problems.
“My health is still fragile and I don’t want to go too fast,” she said. “The path has been long, difficult and very painful.”
Referring to her seven-year-old twins, Gabriella and Jacques, Charlene said, “When I returned to the Principality, I focused all my energies on my children, my husband and my health, because those are my priority.”
Princess Charlene returned to her public duties in May, making occasional public appearances with her husband Prince Albert and her children Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella by her side.
