Monaco Announces New Crown Prince

PARIS Monaco officially announced on Thursday Prince Jacques as the crown prince of the tiny country on the Mediterranean.

I would like to share this joy with Monegasque and with all the residents in my country. These births deepen the sense of community that unites us, said Prince Albert II in a message in French and English published by the Monaco Royal Palace.

In a video message to the nation, Prince Albert II officially announced the birth on Wednesday of crown prince Jacques and his twin sister Gabriella.

Crown Prince Jacques will receive the title of Marquis of Baux, while his sister, second in line to the throne, will be the Countess of Carlades.

The twins were born to the South African swimmer Charlene Wittstock, who married Prince Albert in 2009.

After the birth of the twins on Wednesday, 42 cannon shots rang out around the city.

These are the first children for Alberto II, 56, and Princess Charlene, 36, and the twins are the only ones who could inherit the throne so far.

However, Prince Alberto already has two children born outside marriage without the right of inheritance: Jazmin Grace, 22, whose mother is an American waitress, and Alexandre, 11, born of a relationship with a French flight attendant of Togolese origin.
