Mom Charlene of course looked as stylish as ever in a long black and red coat with black beret.

The men of the family kept it simple in dark coats with Gabriella’s twin brother, Prince Jacques, also opting for a pair of trainers and a navy beanie to ward off the winter chill.

Saint Dévote's Day is a national holiday in Monaco and is named after a Christian patron saint, who was killed and tortured for her faith in the fourth century. 

Residents burn a boat every year in honour of Devota, a young Christian women from Corsica, who was killed by the Prefect Barbarus under the Emperors Diocletian and Maximian. 

Legend has it her body was removed by believers during the night and taken on a boat to Monaco to be entombed in a chapel in 303AD.

On 25 January Charlene celebrated her 43rd birthday which according to Albert (62) was a “intimate family affair” due to Covid-19 concerns and because his wife “doesn’t like big celebrations”, he told People.
