On December 10th, 2014, Princess Gabriella of Monaco, Countess of Carladès was born at the Princess Grace Hospital, named after her paternal grandmother.
Two minutes later, her brother, Jacques did the ole’ “leapfrog” and became the Hereditary Prince of Monaco, and will one day inherit the throne from his father, Prince Albert II.
Because to primogeniture (which was done away with in other royal households like Sweden and Great Britain), Jacques outranks Gabriella by virtue of being a male, despite her being older.
Enough with the technicalities. Let’s coo over baby photos!
