Royal births and pregnancies
The first Royal birth took place early in January, namely January 2, Crown Prince Billah and Princess Sarah of Brunei had their second child and first daughter, titled and named Princess Muneerah. The couple was already parents to a son, Prince Abdul Muntaqim. In the second week of January, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark had their third and fourth children and second son and second daughter. The new Prince and Princess’s names will not be released until their christening. The Crown Prince and Crown Princess were already parents to Prince Christian and Princesss Isabella.
In addition to the Royal pregnancies, we already knew about, we found out that Archduchess Marie Christine of Austria, Comtesse of Limburg-Stirum, and her husband, Comte Rodolphe of Limburg-Stirum, are expecting their first child and that Fürst Alexander and Fürstin Nadja Anna of Schaumburg-Lippe are expecting their second mutual child. They already have a daughter, Princess Felippa, the Fürst also has a son from his previous marriage, Hereditary Prince Heinrich-Donatus.
