Exactly. It's a yearly competition for Monegasques pupils, established by Prince Rainier in 1981. If you look through this and older current events thread you'll find pics of members of the family attending the awards ceremony in various years.

Here's some more information:

Fantastic surprise in Monaco today!


Albert and Charlene brought the twins to the annual picnic in Monaco. And to put the cherry on the cake the twins wore the traditional costumes - sooo cute!

Elisabeth-Anne and Melanie were present as well!

Lovely photos and indeed what a surprise and the traditional Monégasque costumes were very cute!

I strongly suspected they would bring the twins to the picnic today and that they would have them in national dress, so glad I was right because the pictures are beautiful.

a nice article from Daily Mail:
Meet the family! Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene pose with little twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella and local dancers before enjoying a traditional Monaco picnic* | Daily Mail Online

Still, must they stick that pacifier in Gabriella's mouth? In the last pictures I saw, she had one too.

I hate those things! Jacques doesn't seem to need one so why?

Ihihihih... That's all that comes to my mind... The babies are lovely. And i simply love to see Gabriella so «formal» in her little traditional costume and with the pacifire in her mouth... A must!!!

Love that they wore the traditional outfits.
Jacques looks identical to Charlene and Gabriella more like her father's side

Nice family pics. Also, it's good that the kids hair is starting to come in.

Awww, the twins are adorable. I love the small version of the Monegasque national dress! In one of the Daily Mail photos there are three little girls with Albert and Charlene, and two of them aren't wearing the black frilly top the other little girl is wearing, are those tops an additional part of the national dress?

I agree with the bolded, and especially with twins it would seem easier for them both to not have one and vice versa. I don't have anything against dummies on babies but I dislike seeing them on toddlers and small children because IMO they are too old for them. I remember seeing old photos of Camille once, and she still seemed to have her dummy at the age of six (not that I'm saying Gabriella will be the same, by the way. Some children can grow out of their dummies).

Aww, so cute! Lovely pictures and a great idea to dress them in national costume. They are a beautiful family. I look forward to see them develop and grow up, taking their places in Monaco.

Great pictures, love the way the babies are so enthralled with dancers and children. Do wish I could see Gabriella without pacifier too. So nice to have them in costume, just love, love it!
