Charlene & Albert's 1st Baby - Guess the Sex, Name and Godparents


**

With the announcement that Princess Charlene and Prince Albert are expecting their first child at the end of this year, it's time to guess the sex as well as any potential name and the godparents the baby's parents may choose.

What do you think?

I hope they include Grace in her name if they do have a girl. As for Godparents, i'm not overly sure which royals they are close to. I know Sophie was invited by them to the Monaco Grand Prix in 2012 and they are reportedly close so perhaps Sophie Wessex as a godparent. Other than that i'm not really sure.

Wonderful news! I think they're gonna have a little girl!

For a little Princess:

Charlotte Grace Lynette Caroline.

For a little Prince:

Rainier Louis Albert Michel.

I don't know about the godparents. Maybe Princess Caroline and one of The Princess' brothers.

I think Charlotte should be the godmother. She is closer to Charlene's age.

We already have a Charlotte in the current Monegasque Family. So I do not think, that this Name will be selected. But: All others Sound wonderful.

i have the impression it will be a boy, but wouldn't it be nice for them to have a little girl! would she inherit the throne?

i think both godparents will be catholic, but don't know A+C enough to know who they may chose. charlene is a good friend of maxima, and maxima is catholic and queen, so it fits the bill for godmother of a future monarch. however, given maxima is queen to a protestant country, it may not be felt right to ask her to be godmother...

A little Prince Florestan or Prince Honore would be lovely.

But Albert with a little princess would be adorable!

I'm really glad for the couple.

I think Queen Maxima will be the godmother (or one of the godmothers, can't a person have more than one?)

Yes carlotta, if the baby is female she would bear the title of The Hereditary Princess of Monaco, a title Caroline bore until Albert's birth and she also currently holds. In Monaco, he principle of male-preference primogeniture is used.

I also believe Maxima is a strong contender. Since the princely couple is visiting them next week, it might provide an excellent opportunity.

You're right, I completly forgot about the girl.

Maybe Louise.

Actually from what I've been told here during the time of Princess Beatrix's abdication is that Netherlands is not a protestant country, it's half Catholic, half protestant but its ruling family happens to be protestant.

I have to wonder if a girl can rule Monaco, though. Given that Monegasque women can't enter the casino without a male companion, it makes me think that Monaco might need a male to be able to bring the jetset people whatsoever!

Congrats (what a relief it must be..)

Name-wise my first guess was Alexandre, but i just realized that he alreadt has a son with that name so i'll ponder about that one
If it's a girl i'm pretty sure Gracia is somewhere in the names..

Godparent: my guess would be P.Caroline is a sure bet (she will still be heir next...although i wouldn't dare calling her "the spare" to her face )

Are women not allowed to inherit the throne in Monaco?
