Prince Albert’s Christmas message

HSH Prince Albert and his family have mailed their annual Christmas cards to thousands of privileged recipients, not without the full glare of publicity from the international press.

While each glossy magazine has a slightly different take, all agree that the undisputed stars of the show are the royal twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, who turned two on December 10.

In French, English and Monegasque, the Christmas message is: “May the joy and peace of the holiday season be with you in this New Year 2017.”
