The Princely Twins have fun at their First Circus
Gabriella and Jacques attended the third day of the Monte-Carlo Circus Festival for the first time. Gabriella arrived in the arms of her aunt Stephanie, while her little brother was carried by their father Albert. The children were accompanied by Princess Stephanie’s two daughters, Pauline Ducruet and Camille Gottlieb. The twins, now three years old, laughed and played with giant red balloons and seemed to enjoy their first circus experience under the big tent in Fontvieille.
Launched in 1974 by Prince Rainier III of Monaco during the 25th year of his reign, the International Circus Festival of Monte Carlo is now Princess Stephanie’s responsibility. This year, the festival is commemorating 250 years of the modern traditional circus, which began in London in 1768. Princess Stephanie may one day pass the festival on to her daughter, Pauline Ducruet, who accompanies her mother to the festival every year and is also very passionate about the Circus.
