The twins, who started school this past August, enjoy getting an education. During a recent interview with French magazine Point de Vue, the Princess opened up about her children’s feelings about school – saying that her little princess is often upset on Saturdays when she wakes up and doesn’t have classes. Charlene also opened up about the pair and how fast they are growing.

“They know what they want,” she said via Royal Central. “They know what they want, they speak very well and understand many things. It’s hard to believe they’re already four.” The twins and their family spent some time at home for the holidays and the former Olympian opened up about Christmas day, which started with the “pounding of little feet.”

As for how the children prep for Santa's arrival, the Princess said that her children don’t go to bed before making sure he is set to come down the chimney. “They count the days until he comes down the chimney,” she noted. “They always leave a glass of milk and cookies for him, as well as water and grass for the reindeer.”
