The precious snaps were taken at the family's home, Prince's Palace of Monaco. The two siblings were dressed in white satin pyjamas as they posed with their number seven shaped cake in front of a backdrop of colourful balloons.

It is not known whether Charlene was with them as the photos were taken. Last month, her husband Prince Albert confirmed that she was receiving treatment in a facility "outside of Monaco". The royal mother-of-two recently returned to Monaco after being grounded in South Africa for six months with an ear-nose-throat (ENT) infection.

Albert told PEOPLE magazine that he and the children plan to visit Charlene, saying: "We'll visit her there. I can't give you any kind of time frame on that. Not in the next few days, certainly but whenever we get the medical go-ahead."

He added: "You know these kind of treatments, these rest periods, are usually several weeks. I cannot give you any set period at this time, we will see."

On Monaco's National Day on 19 November, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella held up signs on the palace balcony, which said: "We miss you mommy."
