Prince Albert marked a very special occasion on Saturday and Sunday – his ten-year anniversary as the reigning monarch of Monaco. But Albert, 57, couldn't have celebrated the momentous event without the support of his beautiful wife Princess Charlene, and the couple's young twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.

It may have been their dad's big day, but the seven-month-old tots caused a fresh round of excitement when they were spotted observing the action from a balcony, safely out of the sun's heat.

Little Gabriella, who was born just ahead of Jacques, looked adorable in a summery pink dress, while her nanny carried her and kept her entertained.

Her younger brother Jacques slept peacefully in his nanny's arms, blissfully unaware of the commotion he and Gabriella were causing among royal fans.

Their mother Princess Charlene showed her support for her husband of four years by taking to the stage to give a speech. The South African beauty, who was the picture of glamour in a white dress and oversized shades, surprised locals by addressing the crowds in French.

Charlene, 37, then made the way for her husband to speak, and warmly embraced her Prince Charming before he gave his own address. The couple were also presented with gifts on behalf of the people of Monaco.

Charlene and Albert's young twins, who were born on 10 December of last year and christened in May, weren't the only young royals stealing the show. Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo's two-year-old son Sasha was also spotted in attendance.

The fair-haired boy was looked after by his parents and doting grandmother Princess Caroline and at one point was sweetly pictured clapping along with the crowds. Sasha, who dressed in red and white striped shorts, a smocked shirt and white sandals, melted hearts with his rare appearance.

Other members of Monaco's royal family who stepped out to support Prince Albert included his sister Princess Stephanie and her children Pauline and Louis Ducruet, and Princess Caroline's other children Pierre and Charlotte Casiraghi.

Pierre was accompanied by his stunning fiancée Beatrice Borromeo, who he will marry in the next few weeks in the bride's native Italy – no doubt the next big event for Monaco's royal family.
