Monaco's royal twins, including the heir to the throne, have appeared in public for the first time to a cheering crowd.

Princess Charlene and Prince Albert appeared on a palace balcony, each holding a newborn baby swaddled in white.

The hereditary heir Prince Jacques and his older sister - by two minutes - Gabriella were greeted by a small sea of red-and-white flags and banners.

Albert is the son of the late Hollywood star-turned-princess, Grace of Monaco.
