I don't like Rainier, and Grace would be too much of a burden as a first name. Since Caroline named her kids after Rainier's parents, the child could be named after Grace's parents - Jean or Marguerite. Other nice family names on Albert's side are Charles, Maxence, Jacques, Francois, Antoine, Claudine, Josephine, Louise, Isabelle, Auerelie, Bianca, Jeanne, Catherine, Ghislaine, Alice or Elisabeth. Her brother name Sean is Irish for Jean. The child could be named after her parents too - Michel or Lynette. Or you can honour both families - Jean Michel for a boy and Marguerite Lynette for a girl.

Yes they are, up until now P.Caroline was heir and she could have reigned in her own right.
Other than other european monarchies being monarch (prince or princess) of Monaco is not just a formaility but is basically being the CEO of a large company; however that's something women can do equally well as men

I like the name of the wife of the prince Albert I, it was Alice, a beautiful name. and for a boy, I think to the name of Charles, there was the prince Charles III of Monaco

I'm so pleased for them both, wonderful news for the couple.

Just a question, if its a girl does she take precedence over a young brother?

Seeing that Caroline is after Albert in the l-o-s and with the Casiraghi's Charlotte is after Pierre, I assume that right at this moment the younger brother will take precedence...
They might change that in the future however like happened in several european monarchies..

I really hope this child helps her to feel more comfortable in her role as a First Lady ...

The name game ... I opt for Antoine Rainier Albert for a boy. Then I have two options for a girl: Catherine Charlotte Gracia or Aurelia Gracia.

I think the baby will be a boy since the latest additions to the Grimaldi Family have both been boys (Sasha and Raphael), although personally I'd like it to be a girl. Some name suggestions:

Girls
Antoinette Honorine* Athénaïs* Marie
Florestine* Aurelia Charlene Caroline
Grace Ghislaine Marguerite Lynette

Boys
Florestan Albert Charles Rainier
Louis Jacques* Michael Honoré
Joseph Louis Albert Pierre

* = Princess Honorine, Marchioness of La Tour du Pin.
* = Princess Athénaïs, Marchioness of Louvois.
* = Princess Florestine, Duchess of Urach.
* = Prince Jacques I.

But Albert with a little princess would be adorable!
I agree on Florestan, it's such a handsome name! I remember guessing it for Raphael or Sasha, but that didn't happen. I think it and other forgotten about historical names should make a come back, especially if Albert and Charlene have a girl, because there were a lot of beautiful names amongst the Monegasque Princesses.



I'm not sure about the godparents, but perhaps one of the Casiraghis, Caroline, Stephanie or one of the relatives of Princess Grace, although I'm not sure how close they are to her family.

I am pretty sure they would not name a girl after Florestine of Urach ... The two branches of the family had quite a dispute concerning succession rights ...

I didn't know. I'm not very knowledgeable about the Monegasque Princely Family's history since I don't follow the family as much as I do other royals. Perhaps they could still use Florestine but honour a Prince Florestan instead, or maybe the name has too much of a negative association.

Thank you for answering my question.

I think Charlene must be at least 12 weeks pregnant, it would have not been announced before.

They have succession rights but men come first. So if this child will be a girl and later a son will be bron he will suceed desptie the fact that he is not the oldest child.

I think that perhaps prince Albert will ask a change of constitution and if it is a girl she may reign even if there is the birth of a boy after her.

Do you think that, like in England, there will be an attempt to change the law.

I think one of the Casiraghi siblings will be amongst the godparents chosen. Albert always seemed very close to them and Charlene seems to have a nice relationship with them as well.

Have you thought of Sophie of wessex as a godmother? Or Maxima? Charlene is said to get along with them pretty well!

Think you will find his father changed the constitution in case he didn't have a child and his sister would inherit , so it doesn't matter boy or girl will be the heir
