Princess Charlene & Albert dropped their twins off for their first day of school

Prince Albert and Princess Charlotte’s kids, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, always strike me as just normal little kids. Maybe they know their family is weird, but their existence isn’t so coddled and precious. They get into normal-kid hijinks, like Gabriella’s obsession with cutting hair. Last year, Gabriella got a hold of a pair of scissors and cut herself some unfortunate bangs. This year, just before school started, Gabrielle got her hot little hands on another pair of scissors and decided to not only give herself a haircut, but she cut her brother’s hair too. Charlene posted the photos on her IG – Gabriella gave herself a punk mullet and Jacques got a ragged skaterboi haircut.

The photos in this post are from Monaco’s picnic or some such thing. All I know is that Charlene and Albert happily posed with their kids outdoors, and when I say “happily,” I mean “Charlene looked like she was humming ‘Sounds of Silence’ to herself.” The family perked up on Monday when it came for the twins’ first day of school this year. They did go to school in the last term, but you have to remember, this time last year, Charlene was MIA in South Africa. This is the first time the kids start their school year with both parents dropping them off.

In case anyone wondered, Gabriella had a sequined pink backpack (which I covet) and Jacques has a Mario Bros backpack. Gabriella also accessorized like a boss with her little cat-ear headband. She’s going to be a handful when she gets older, it’s going to be so funny. Her little face already says “SOON.”

    I have a question: how do royals dropping their kids to school bringing value to their citizens ? I am really trying to understand the logic behind all of this. Those are kids are like a spectacle for people to do what with knowing they are going to school

    • Lemons says:

      You’re not asking the right question. Being royal is never about bringing wealth or value to your “subjects”. It’s about bringing value to the royals themselves. Getting subjects invested in you and your family’s well-being is important. That way, you can tell them that you deserve all of those riches. Trotting out cute kids is a part of that investment. Look! Cute kids that will soon be adult royals! Keep their seats cushioned and their spoons polished!

      That being said, these kids are cute. I love the back-to-school period as all the little ones are pretty adorable.

    those two children always look so unhappy being put on display in public. i’m glad at least they have each other; it looks like in the one they are clinging to each other’s hands.

    • K8erade says:

      They look more authentic and happier than George, Charlotte, or Louis do in public.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        I’d agree with this, although I think all the mentioned children basically act like happy kids even in public.

        The Monaco twins more than the UK siblings, though — I always think those two look like little buddies, occasional partners in crime, and overall happy kids.

      They’re cute kids. Gotta admit I like the Wednesday Addams energy from the little girl. They start school really late. We start mid-August. Eh, I guess it’s a way to give the public another glimpse of the kids and kick off the school year. Now I can’t unsee the Addams family, especially with Alberts and Charlene’s proportions. Blonde Morticia and Gomez.

    I’m glad those two kids have each other.

    She really does look healthier overall so whatever their new deal is may be working to her favor. I love how the children rarely give a fake smile to the press. Baby girl’s bangs finally grow out.

    Weirdly, with as dysfunctional as that family is and as dysfunctional as that marriage seems to be, both Albert and Charlene seem to be good parents and the kids seem comfortable with both in public. Of course thats just publicly managed photo ops but I think its hard to expect kids to fake comfort with a parent, you know?

  6. K8erade says:

    I don’t understand why we’re obsessed with the BRF when we have Albert and Charlene. They’re full of drama, they have two adorable kids, and they just come off way better.

    That said, I feel -for better or for worse- if anyone could show William how it’s done, it’s Albert. Albert has plenty of his own skeletons but he could really help William out when it comes to leading, PR, and being relatable.

    Albert looks as though he needs to stay away from too many snacks or seconds at the dining table.

    Hey don’t fat shame. There is plenty to criticize about him without throwing us fatties under the bus.
