In an interview with French publication Nice Matin, their proud father talks about the differences in their personalities, saying the "marvellous" babies already have quite different characters. Albert says his busy schedule makes it difficult to spend time with Gabriella and Jacques, who is the heir to his throne. However, he finds moments for quality time with them.
He says: "When they wake up I try to spend time with them, playing little games.... I give them their bottles and change their nappies".
The family are happy to back at home after moving out of the Palace to a nearby villa during renovations ahead of celebrations to mark 10 years since the prince's accession to the throne. In recent weeks Albert has moved to address rumours about their marriage
"Everything is going wonderfully between Charlene and I," he told the French paper. "I was in Corsica with her this week and I don't think we looked like a couple on the verge of a break up."
The beautiful pictures are available in issue number 1387 which is on sale now.
