Princess Elisabetta and Prince Amedeo expecting their first child

What a lovely surprise to read & on top of the wonderful news of the new little Princess of Jordan from yesterday, it's turning into a very joyful Royal News Cycle this weekend. :) :)

No kidding!! IIRC, the last time a Royal kept something like this (really big, but also really personal news at the same time) successfully under wraps, it was the then Crown Prince Felipe's Courtship of the then Letitzia Ortiz. I'm still amazed they were able to keep that so hush hush & no leaks coming out about it.

Prince Amedeo and Princess Elisabetta, News and Events Part 1, July 2014- present

The number of royal babies right know is exciting.

That it is. Speaking of Cycles, we're in the Cycle of the young Royals either starting or adding to their Families and it is lovely to watch all these little Sweeties enter our World. :)

Even though Amedeo and Elisabetta aren't Senior Members of the Belgian RF, considering all that has happened the last couple of weeks, this is news of the kind the People of Brussels and Belgium really need now. Something happy & to celebrate over. :)

Congratulations to the soon to be Parents, Grandparents & Families!!! :) :) :)

The baby will also be the first great-grandchild for Amedeo's paternal grandmother, Archduchess Margherita of Austria-Este.

Will it also be the first grandchild for the maternal grandparents-to-be and the first great-grandchild for the maternal great-grandparents-to-be?

Yes, it will be also the first grandchild for Ettore and Lilia Rosboch, since Elisabetta is their only child IIRC.
As for Elisabetta's grandparents, I believe they are all dead by now.

Wonderful news and congratulation to the couple. Cant wait for the new arrival!

But I don't understand why the announcement would come one mont before the due date? Why announce it then. I thought it was a bit weird to do so so late.

Yes it seems we have all been taken by surprise and keen to find out how they kept it such a royal baby secret!

Amedeo's children won't be royal actually (at least not in Belgium; they may be considered royal in the now deposed House of Austria). Since the baby won't be a prince/princess of Belgium, I believe the royal court of Belgium cionsidered Lili's pregnancy to be a private matter. Hence, the lack of an early public announcement, I guess.

I don't think that it was a proper planned announcement. Rather the press got wind of it, inquired at the palace, and they confirmed. If the press hadn't inquired, they'd probably had kept it secret till after the birth.

Who are the other 2 royal babies due in May???? I guess Sofia could have hers in May though she is due in April. Who am I missing?
I think it was about new babies in the Parmese Ducal Family. Prince Jaime and Princess Viktória are expecting their second child in April/ May and Prince Carlos and Princess Annemarie's third child together is due in May

The baby is certainly royal on the Austrian side, even if the titles are only. Like Amadeo was when he was born, his son or daughter will be both an imperial and royal highness as an Archduke/chess of Austria. The Austrian royals tend to make the news often enough. Look at the pregnancies of the wives of Imre and Christophe for instance. It is a bit surprising this one flew under the radar as long as it did.

I agree that his children will be HI&RH in their cadet branch of the House of Austria. However, their dynastic titles are not legally recognized in any of the countries where the family claims to hold those titles (Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Italy, etc). Officially, Amedeo's children will be "pretense royals" only. Amedeo himself and his parents and sublings are in a different category as they actually hold legallly sanctioned
titles of prince or princess in Belgium.

We don't know anything about the other Archduke Otto's great grandchilden.

We know about AD Carl Christian because he married a Princess of Luxembourg
We know about AD Lorenz because he married a Princess of Belgium

Shouldn't they be more than just pretense royals? They will have succession rights to the throne of Belgium now that the King has given his consent to the marriage, am I right?!
