Prince Albert is sure to be sentimental around Monaco's National Day (Nov. 19), having spent so many celebrations on the balcony of the pink palace with his doting parents as a child. Now, as twins Jacques and Gabriella approach their first birthday, the Albert has shared his feelings about their late grandmother, Princess Grace, in an interview with People.
"I think she would have been an outstanding grandmother," Prince Albert confided. Meanwhile, he added that his father, the late Prince Rainier III, would probably have been more laid-back as a grandfather than he was as a parent.
"He would have been a little more indulgent, more lenient than he was with myself and my sisters."

"If we needed to ask for something, we'd go to Mom," Albert revealed in 2014.
"They are doing very well, we have just celebrated their 11th month and they will be with us on the balcony for the national holiday, if it isn't too cold," he promised.
"They are beginning to take their first steps and trying to say little bits of words. They really want to express themselves, and I speak to them in French. In everyday life, they are very playful and curious."
Albert met Charlene, an Olympic swimmer, when she took part in a championship in Monaco. The couple, who married in a lavish three-day celebration in 2011, are already keen to pass their love of sport on to their children.
"They have already watched a little rugby and football on TV with us and they were really interested."
