Princess Charlene of Monaco has revealed an intimate family moment after sharing an adorable video of Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques celebrating their birthday.
Princess Charlene, 41, shared the adorable video of the twins on Instagram, with the five-year-olds donned party hats and clutched party horns to send a birthday video to her mother in South Africa.
While the twins mumbled their way through the ‘We love you and miss you’ message, Prince Albert II, 61, can be heard chuckling in the background.
Princess Charlene recently gave a rare interview about motherhood to French magazine Point de Vue, confessing that her parenting duties are ‘often exhausting… [but] also very stimulating in many areas.’

Posting the clip on Instagram, Princess Charlene captioned it: ‘Birthday message for Grandma.’
But in the brief video, shared on the twin’s fifth birthday, the little royals appear less than enthusiastic about celebrating their big day.
Jacques and Gabriella can be seen wrapped up warm in winter coats with added jaunty party hats and horns to celebrate.
Gabriella goes on to take the lead alongside her brother, with the twins exclaiming: ‘It’s my birthday’.
It marked the first time the little royals, who are bilingual, have been heard speaking, sending the message in English (pictured together in November)
Prompted by their mother, they then go on to say: ‘I miss you, I love you!’
It’s the first time the adorable twins have been heard speaking, impressively managing the phrases in English, rather than Monaco’s native language of French.
Princess Charlene recently boasted about the twin’s bilingual skills in an interview with Point de Vue, revealing that the pair speaking English at home and French while at school.
She said: ‘This leads them to develop their own thinking, their own vision of things,’ she said. ‘Me, as their mother, I discover, I learn. I find it marvellous following their evolution, accompanying them on this path.’

She went on to reveal the ‘incredible affection and gentleness for one another’ that the twins share, adding: ‘[They] talk to each other all the time.
‘Like all children they sometimes can be a little abrupt, a little hard even in their exchanges, but they support each other unconditionally. When all is well, then nothing and no one can stop them.’
Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques often accompany their parents during their trips, staying with either one of them when their schedules differ.
But providing a glimpse of life when the family is at the palace, Charlene explained that their father takes them to school and then the ‘evenings are usually a lot of movement’.

She added: ‘When I’m alone with them, the kids fight over who will sleep with Mum. They love to climb into our bed, suddenly we find ourselves a little cramped. And all this without counting our two dogs, Poppy and Harley!’
Charlene, who was born in Bulawayo, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), represented South Africa in the 100 metre medley relay at the 2000 Sydney Olympics – and retired from swimming in 2007.
Prince Albert II met Charlene at the Mare Nostrum swimming competition in Monte Carlo in 2000, announced their engagement in 2010, and tied the knot on July 1, 2011.
Her pregnancy was announced in May 2014, and in December that year she gave birth to twins Princess Gabriella and heir to the throne, Prince Jacques.
