The royal couple, who famously tied the knot with two lavish weddings in Italy in 2015, are already parents to 14-month-old son Stefano, who they welcomed on February 28, 2017.

Prince Albert previously spoke of his sister’s excitement over becoming a grandmother. 

“She’s a very good mother, and probably an even better grandmother now if that’s possible,” Albert said in January 2017. “She really raised her kids well. Without a father for many years, that’s important. I’m incredibly proud of her children and to have them turn out as they have — that’s a tribute to her.”
