“Happy holidays!”

By Cassandra Tanti - August 3, 2020

Princess Charlene has shared a picture of her adorable twins soaking up the sun on their extended summer holiday on the island of Corsica.

The Princess posted the picture on Friday afternoon of five-year-olds Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques on the beach, each sporting responsible arm-length swimming costumes – a Wonder Woman insignia adorning Princess Gabriella’s while Prince Jacques opted for a matching shark t-shirt-short combo.

“Happy holidays,” their mother captioned the family snap.

While family trips to Corsica are a regular occurrence for the Princely family, this particular extended trip is providing the former Olympic swimmer with an opportunity to train for her epic marathon called ‘The Crossing’, which is set to take place on 12th and 13th September.

In a new interview with French magazine Point de Vue, the Princess has revealed that the month-long vacation is also a learning experience for her entire family.

“Here, in Corsica, the children feel great freedom. They’ve the opportunity to live a unique experience, in contact with the elements, the flowers, animals… The entire cycle of nature is offered to us here, literally on our doorstep,” she said.

“When I was a child, the daily life and pace of life was very different,” she added.

“Jacques and Gabriella have so many opportunities available to them. They’ve traveled the world since they were born, they have already been in contact with many cultures, everything around them has always been a source of learning and fulfillment. Each day spent at their side is exciting,” shared the Princess.

The 42-year-old athlete also said that Prince Albert will be cheering her along in September. “I’ve been training for several weeks in Calvi, at the rate of several hours per day. Like me, my husband is a former Olympic athlete (and though) he will not take part in the relay, he will be there, aboard a boat, to support me,” she said.
