They youngsters also received Christmas gifts from the princely couple, and the children of Princess Stephanie, Camille Gottlieb and Louis Ducruet.

Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, who celebrated their third birthday on December 10, did not attend the festive events as they, reportedly, have a touch of the flu.
