Yes, Charlene said she spoke to them in English, French (I'm a bit dubious about how much but anyway...) and Afrikaans, but in this latest interview Albert said they speak mostly English - hence my comment.

I, suspect, the children will speak English, primarily. Charlene does and so does Albert. He says he stutters in French. His mother spoke English to him. I am sure they will speak French, also.

Albert is completely bilingual and as far as I'm aware he converses with his sisters and their families primarily in French. I've heard him stammer in both languages but not recently.
I'm sure the children will speak both, I would just hope that given their circumstances English isn't THE dominant language. True bilingualism is such a gift.

Just as their father and aunts, the twins will be educated in French. I am certain that the nannies are also francophone. the twins will speak French, j'en suis certaine

I absolutely love how confidently and lovingly Charlene is snuggling up in Albert's arms during the race. She looks like she is tired in some of them, and drawing strength from him, and he is willingly giving her what he has. They look so comfortable together, and that makes my heart happy.

^^^ I agree. Despite all the negative criticism they do seem to have a close and loving relationship. There are many similar pics around, and still some choose to see only those where she is not smiling and concluding that she is not happy. I think they are very happy together, especially now that they have two beautiful babies.

Albert said in an interview last year that he spoke to the children in french, they are going to a daycare center twice times in the week where they are surely speaking in french .
Princess Grace spoke to her children in english and english is also the language spoken in the family, I heard Charlotte speaking in english to her mother during the national fest at the balcon.

Lovely picture of the family. I'm guessing the pictures inside the magazine are the same as the ones seen on Facebook?

It's great to see Jacques and Gabriella again, they're always a delight to see. I love Gabriella's little hat.

When saw the kids at the reception, I thought they were ready for the pool, looked like wet suit style bathing suits See, looking at new photos, I was right. Love seeing the kids,
