Monaco’s Albert II and Charlene Baptize Their Twins, Jacques and Gabriella

PARIS – Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco on Sunday baptized their twins Jacques and Gabriella in a Catholic ceremony held at the principality’s cathedral followed by a public reception at the royal palace.

The 5-month-old Gabriella Therese Marie Grimaldi and Jacques Honore Rainier Grimaldi, dressed in white christening gowns, were well-behaved and calm during the baptism and afterwards were looked after by their nannies in a separate room during the continuation of the ceremony while the choir sang hymns.

The twins were born on Dec. 10 at the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco and were officially presented in public for the first time on Jan. 7.

Attending the baptism were the Grimaldi and Wittstock families of the groom and bride, including Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie.

The royal couple married in July 2011 and the twins are their first children in common, with Jacques being first in line for the tiny principality’s throne. Albert has two other children born out of wedlock, but – consequently – they have no succession rights.

Albert was once considered one of the world’s most eligible bachelors and succeeded his father Prince Rainier in 2005 at the age of 47. Charlene, a former Olympic swimmer, was born in Zimbabwe and spent much of her youth in South Africa.
