Actually I think the baby could have the mixture between both,that could be nice green or hazel colour

Congratulations to them! I wish the American news outlets covered more royal stories (other than those that relate to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge). I'll have to keep watch here to find out the news about the baby. I hope the coverage of the baby's christening makes it to YouTube. That's about the only way I can see videos of European's royal families, it seems.

I am so glad for them! I had worried whether Daniel's health history would give them a problem - but seeminly not! :-)

After Mathilde, Maxima, Mette-Marit, Mary and Letizia keeping us happy and interested on the baby front, we will now be looking to Victoria and, hopefully, Catherine and Charlene! Then there only the Hereditary Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg to marry. (Of course, although no longer with a throne, we also have Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia, Head of the former Imperial German house, marrying at the end of this month!)

Absolutely Fantastic News! I am SO happy for them.
Wishing them all the best.

Have to say...I was getting a little worried as time went by.
Whew! Now I can relax and be happy for them. :)

Comments from the grandparents-to-be from Aftonbladet:

Kungaparet: Underbara nyheter | Nyheter | Aftonbladet

And translated in English:

Quote:
King and Queen: Great news

Yesterday came the news: Crown Princess Victoria is pregnant.

Today the prospective grandparents tell about their joy over receiving the news.

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are expecting their first child. Queen Silvia and King Carl XVI Gustaf will get their first grandchild in March next year.

They choose to comment on the upcoming grandchild today in a statement.

- It is wonderful news and we both rejoice with the Crown Princess couple. We wish the Crown Princess couple a quiet, peaceful and harmonious period, writes the royal couple.

The prospective grandparents on the father's side already have two grandchildren, but look forward to another.

- We are thrilled and delighted with the happy news, says Olle Westling to Aftonbladet.

Congratulations to CPss Victoria and Prince Daniel. It shall be great to have Haga Palace halls echo with the sound of children laughing and running down corridors as the the next generation of the Swedish Royal Family is raised in the same palace that their grandfather the King was raised and also their great aunts.


I also wonder which colour eyes the baby shall have brown, blue, hazel or green.

Also, whether the baby shall have blonde hair as a toddler and then have brown or chesnut like CPss Victoria or reddish brown hair like Prince Daniel as the child grows older.

Yesterday I read from one of the blogs commenting at the royal pregnancy on either Expressen or Aftonbladet that according to tradition the baby will be born at Haga Palace (they claimed it would be the first royal birth there, is it true?) and the first guest to see the baby according to etiquette would be the prime minister who's job would be to witness that an heir to the crown has indeed been born. The baby might even be presented on a silver tray to spectators as happened with Gustav V in the past. The blogger gave Victoria the advice that she should not accept the PM as her first guest at her bedside on such a delicate situation etc. and was simply quite shocked at the presentation ritual etc.

I just think all this sounds a bit funny. Didn't Queen Silvia give birth at a hospital so why would her daughter give birth at home? I understand that there might be some traditions and maybe even laws that the PM must pay a visit to acknowledge the new heir-to-the-throne-to-be but I doubt he'd be the very first guest. As for the presentation on a silver tray... Seriously, wasn't done with Victoria, why would it be done this time?

Crownprincess Victoria is the first (and only) royal who hasn┤t been born in one of the royal familys palaces, i┤ve read beacuse Queen Silvia was nervous about her first birth so she chose to have Victoria at Karolinska Hospital instead - but Carl-Philip was born at Stockholm palace and Madeleine at Drottningholm palace and the king and all his sisters was born at Haga palace.

In the old days the prime minister and the speaker of parliment and other prominent persons would be waiting in a room next door and then be shown the (still bloody) baby - in Gustav V┤s case with him laying on a silver tray... But today that cermony takes place the day after the birth and does not include a silver tray . But we will most likely see the prime minister and the speaker of parliment at the palace the day after the birth.

I can't help smiling at some people who are saying 'finally'. They've been married just over a year and since she must have gotten pregnant in June, they managed it in less than a year.

Same here, actually no one knows how long they have been trying, except them, and it could have worked on the first try. It's not impossible that they simply wanted to give Daniel some time to get used to his new role and therefore waited with the baby for some time.

Just read about this the other day via PEOPLE magazine online, and couldn't be happier! :)

On that note, I wish to add my well wishes and felicitations to my favorite royal couple, Crown Princess Victoria & Prince Daniel.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

I have heard some rumours about Prince Daniel not being able to "produce". Has anyone else heard that?

No, but there were some speculation because of his illness. However, at least many doctors here in Finland have said that the kidney transplant and the medication Daniel has to take for the rest of his life, doesn┤t prevent him having children. Victoria┤s anorexia was the more worrying thing.
But there is no need to discuss about this now.
