She missed the Monaco World Cup games in November, reportedly due to low blood pressure caused by a irregular heartbeat. Before becoming pregnant with twins, a different Prince was due in August, but when he was unable to attend the team’s game against Uruguay, the plan for another child changed.
Despite the time off, she attended the births of her twins’ elder siblings in April and has been seen in public during family festivities such as the royal courtships of Albert’s son Pierre and Charlene’s daughter Princess Alexandra. She is also the mother of Prince Jacques, 9, and Princess Gabriella, 6. The princes, both sons of Albert, are the children of his two previous marriages.
