See All of Monaco's Adorable Royal Babies on National Day
Royal balcony moments aren't reserved for the residents of Buckingham Palace. The Monegasque royal family puts on its own display every year in honor of Monaco's National Day Celebrations in Monte Carlo. The Grimaldi family gathers annually for a mass at the Monaco cathedral and watches a parade, posing for photos on the Palace balcony. Prince Albert and his wife Princess Charlene brought their 4-year-old twins, while Albert's nieces and nephews brought their children as well. A family baby boom has made these moments more crowded—as Prince Albert told People last year, “We’re running out of space for everyone. We’re going to have to create new windows, build new balconies.” See every photo from the National Day events here.
