HSH Prince Albert and Princess Charlene gave Christmas gifts to 600 young Monegasques at the Palace on Wednesday afternoon. This year the annual occasion was very special, with two year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, also assisting in the happy event.

The last few days have been particularly busy for the Prince and Princess. Prince Albert was in North America, where the high point of his visit was an address to the American Geophysical Union at its autumn meeting in San Francisco, during which he emphasised the importance of recognising the reality of climate change.

Meanwhile, Princess Charlene had a busy schedule in India at the weekend, where on the sidelines of a summit focussed on children’s rights, she took the time to visit rural families hit by the AIDS crisis.
