The first photos of Prince Albert and Princess Charlene’s twins were released yesterday – a gift from the Monaco royals.

As you can see, Charlene looks bagged. My friend and colleague on The Social, Traci Melchor, has twins. She says it’s bananas and every time she describes it, it’s two hands, one at each breast, all day… for months!

You’ll note, the twins are dressed for gender. Pink for Gabriella and blue for Jacques, Monaco’s future monarch.

But how else would you tell them apart?!?!

Initials work, non?

There were so many expectations on these two even before they arrived. And, really, for the rest of their lives. And already they’re being held up to the public with specific ideas about how a Princess and a Prince should be presented. Does that narrow their worlds even before they’re allowed to discover it?
