Saturday proved to be a morning of fun for the Princely twins, Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.

The 3-year-olds stopped by the playground at the Condamine market before visiting the Prince’s Car Collection, where they admired the Bugatti Chiron exhibit, which runs until March 10, 2018.

On Friday, Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie, alongside her children Louis and Pauline, opened the 42nd International Circus Festival in Monte-Carlo.

This year, the festival celebrates 250 years of the “modern circus”. It was in 1768 when a young equestrian named Philip Astley performed in London, in a field near Westminster Bridge, on a circular ring 13 metres in diameter. His equestrian show mixed acts from the fair – jugglers, equilibrists, funambulists and even trained dogs and monkeys – and modern circus was born on horseback.

The International Circus Festival in Monte-Carlo will host a gala evening on Tuesday, January 23, to present the gold, silver and bronze Clown Awards. Circus performances will continue until Sunday, January 28, with the winner”s show.
