Princess Charlene gave birth to twin babies, Gabriella and Jacques, with Prince Jacques arriving just two minutes behind his sister.
The whole Sunseeker Monaco team were delighted to hear the cannons and the incredible noise of the boat horns that rang out thought the night in celebration, normally only reserved for the end of the Monaco Yacht Show and the F1 Grand-Prix.
Matthew Stanton, Sales Broker at Sunseeker Monaco comments; "We are looking forward to seeing the new arrivals. The whole of Monaco has a real buzz about it, flags and bunting are flying - it's an early Christmas present! On behalf of all of our colleagues, we'd like to wish the Royals all the very best."
