Prince Albert of Monaco reveals travel plays for royal twins, who are already little jet-setters
A royal play date is on the horizon.
Monaco's royal twins Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques are approaching their third birthday and during that time, they've seen more of the world than most of us could hope to in adulthood. It makes sense, the royals based in Monte Carlo aren't exactly known for their subtlety, but Prince Albert has revealed just exactly how well travelled his children with Princess Charlene are.
While they have stuck close to home at the Prince's Palace for much of this year, they will be joining their parents for appearances around the world in 2018 and are getting accustomed to public life before the year ends: first, for Monaco's National Day on November 19 and later at the royal family's Christmas party in December.
"We did a cruise with them this summer and that was fine. Next summer, we’re going to take them on a long trip to Polynesia. We’ll have to break up so it’s not so long for them," he told People.
He plans to keep up family tradition in holding off including his children in an "official" international capacity until they're older, referencing a trip to Ireland he took with his parents Princess Grace and Prince Rainier "on the private side of an official visit"; which may explain his particularly affinity for our shores and he's often pictured here for business and leisure.
"Including Jacques and Gabriella as part of any official state visit might have to wait a few years," he added.
Naturally, as all royal baby coverage is required to include references to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, he said there are no immediate plans to meet up.
"Are you asking me about a royal play date with Will and Kate’s kids? Maybe, but a state visit with the twins to any country - not just the UK - is a few years off," he explained.
