Oh, my. So tiny! Albert and Charlene look well and I can't wait until everyone becomes acclimated to the larger family and we can get some candids. I love being able to see them.

Yes, I said it. No, I won't apologize. Yes, I will say it again.

Very sweet pictures, from the looks of it, P.Jacques is the quiet calm one and P.Gabriella the lively mischievous one, but maybe after two weeks of age that's too soon to tell?

it would be nice to, at some time in the future, have some pics with their older half-siblings, but I'm not willing to place a bet on that happening..

Jacques' lips are just ADORABLE! He looks after Charlene! Both are so cute and tiny and waw, so happy to finally see them :)

The pictures are wonderful. Who cares if they seem "from Walmart"! They are pictures of proud and happy parents showing off their twin babies!

So wonderful to finally see the babies! The twins are adorable and it's extremely touching to see Charlene and Albert as proud, protective, fascinated and still a bit insecure, careful new parents.

I love that black and white one. The little Prince looks like he is squirming like mad and Charlene has raised her arm to try and stop him falling off her knee LOL. I am delighted for them and the children look like they are thriving.

A wonderful Christmas gift for us; what a lovely family, the happiness is so obvious. God bless them !

I don't know the customs there, is Jacques in blue and Gabriella in pink ? It differs with the countries.

I thought it was to make it easy to tell which twin was which. Just a guess of course, but it's the one that makes the most sense to me. :)

They are the sweetest wee Angels & Charlene & Albert are just totally heads over heels in love w/them. ITA it looks like Gabriella is going to be the more outgoing of the two, where Jacques is just chillin in his Mommy's arms. :)

What a lovely little Family they are & I really hope they get home for Christmas. :)

Surprised at the reaction to the photographs. I find them very unpretentious and decidedly pleasing. The colors pop. The ones I don't like are the ones without the Christmas tree. Those are too austere imo. Otherwise, I'd hire the photographer. To each his own.

Aweeeee... they are adorable! 😍 I agree, the pictures are gorgeous -- especially the ones with the Christmas tree. Both parents are beaming, and look so proud and happy. It's going to be great to watch them grow up; to share in all their special moments. It's going to be a very merry Christmas in Monaco! ❤️🙏😊🌲

Beautiful first pics. The twins are tiny, but so sweet! And the parents look really proud and happy.

What a blessing and wonderful Christmas gift the newborn babies are to the Princely couple and Monaco. Let's hope they get to celebrate Christmas at home as a family.

I love the photos. They are as joyful as anyone would expect after the arrival of twins. They have left enough time for the babies to bloom a little before discharging them and now it's down to mum and dad.

Albert looks so relaxed and happy and Charlene has a serenity that was lacking before the children were born. Both Albert and Charlene could never have been described as gregarious or jovial as both carry their own reserved manner. In the photos we see a happy family and the photos are as happy, or cheesy as any other new parents. (I liked Albert's shirt, it's very holiday Christmas).

Adorable and insecure new parents. They both look so happy and Gabriella certainly looks like her father. They are both fair. Air brushing is wonderful.

Nice Christmas present.

The babies are cute and the photos are nice.

Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella are very tiny. They look like dolls.

Merry Christmas to Charlene and Albert and hope they are able to bring their little bundles of joy home for Christmas.

Oh my God..they are both so tiny and pretty! The resemblance between little Jacques and Charlene struck me immediately, as well as the fact that both infants are very fair like Albert and Charlene.

How adorable that Gabriella seemed to be laughing in a couple of the photos!

Soo happy for Charlene. What a moment of supreme, exquisite triumph this must be for her after everything she has been through...

Article about the cloths of the babies

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene Release First Photos of Their Newborn Twins - Babies, Birth, House of Monaco, Charlene Wittstock, Prince Albert :

Photos now on the site of the palace

Palais Princier de Monaco

The photos are beautiful and natural, they are not official photos. they are taken in a room of Maternity.

Remember the photos of philippe and Mathilde of Belgium posing with their babies, they were at the hospital.

After there will be the official photos perhaps taken when there will be the presentation.

The babies are very cute it is the most important and the parents are happy. It was a gift of Christmas of the princely couple for the people of Monaco who are very happy to see their futur heirs. Which is very important.
