Both names also hold some serious historical significance. All three of the baby boy's names are also names of previous princes, and he has now been granted the title of Marquis of Baux. On top of that, Rainier is actually the name of Prince Albert's father. Such a sweet nod to grandpa!

As for Gabriella, Thérèse, Marie, she is now the Countess of Carladès.

Have you followed? That's a whole lot of names for two little babies.

Additionally, the Palace has also announced that while the young prince was actually born after his twin sister, he will be first in line to the throne (as the Crown Prince), followed by his sister.
