Princess Charlene of Monaco's twins steal the show in Christmas card

Now this is a Christmas card we'd love to receive. Princess Charlene of Monaco and her husband Prince Albert have unveiled a gorgeous Christmas card starring their one-year-old twins Crown Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.

The family of four are pictured relaxing at home in front of their Christmas tree and fireplace, with Albert cradling the little prince and Charlene wrapping a protective arm around the sweet princess.

The twins, who started to learn how to walk last month, are the picture of cuteness. Both were dressed in adorable cream outfits and sported the same blonde hair as their proud mum.

While Jacques seemed fascinated by the photographer, little Gabriella was more focused on chewing. Their mum Charlene, 37, showed off her effortlessly chic style in a turtle neck camel jumper and a cream full-length skirt.

The beautiful family portrait was posted on Facebook by the royal palace. Inside the Christmas card, Albert and Charlene signed their names and titles under a message that reads: "All our best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a New Year 2016 filled with joy."

The message was also written in French and Monégasque.

"She's very eager to be with her children at all times," said Prince Albert

In a recent interview Albert, who married Charlene in 2011, opened up about his family life and praised his partner's hands-on approach to motherhood.

"She's very eager to be with her children at all times," the prince told People. "She's up with the kids at six and takes them through the morning. Every day. I don't think they would be as smiling and happy as they are if she weren't as good a mother as she is."

"She's had to organise a number of things a little differently during the past year," Albert added. "She's had to organise several household moves this year as well and that has been a big task for her, but she's shown herself to be incredibly organised and a great mother."
