Beautiful. I have followed this family since my childhood and I never get tired of them, they fascinate me.

Wonderful photos!

And what a nice surprise that more pictures of that Christmas card photo session were released!

All photos are lovely, but the one of Gabriella painting with that typical childlike concentration and dedication is too cute!

Just saw the latest photos of the family! What a beautiful selection of pictures. I love that their card reflects the true Christmas feeling. And the twins are so cute!

I hadn't seen the additional photos when I last posted so I'll comment now - they are absolutely adorable! Jacques and Gabriella are such a delight to see. The photo of little Jacques with the snowflake on his head is too cute, it looks as if he thinks he's a Christmas tree I love how Gabriella blends in with the tree in her little red dress.

There was many photos taken of the family in that way. After Grace died Rainier and Albert stood with Caroline and Stephanie sitting and Graces photo behind them.

The Palace has shared the cutest Christmas video on its Facebook page -- a first, as far as I can recall... 💕

A lovely little video - very natural and informal. So good to see P Gabriella enjoying it, no scary characters around this time! And Brother Jacques a typical two year old!

Wishing the Princely family and all our posters a peaceful and joyous Christmas!

Oh, lovely. They take so much joy in their children and it's a pleasure for them to share them with the public, it never comes across as grudged like it does with some other royals I could mention.

A wonderful and very natural video. I maybe be mistaken but I think that Gabriella might be left handed. Any other reader has the same impression?

The Irish press are reporting that Albert and Charlene are currently enjoying a private family holiday in Ireland with her 2 brothers and their families. Hope they have a good time.
