Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques have a busy schedule ahead
On Monaco’s National Day, which is 19 November, the twins will take part in the royal family’s tradition of watching the celebrations from their balcony. Then, they will celebrate their 3rd birthday on the 10th of December before making an appearance at the palace’s annual Christmas party. Next year, the twins will be accompanying their parents on a “halfway-around-the-world” trip, starting in Polynesia, where Albert plans to visit the Yersin vessel during its stop in the Marquesa Islands.
On their trip, there is a possibility that they’ll meet a few local dignitaries, but taking Jacques and Gabriella on any official state visit will most likely wait a few years. After all, it wasn’t until Prince Albert II was 6 years old that he participated in his first formal state visit, in Portugal.
