It would be good for this to happen. I'm hoping it's a girl. I think if it is, the name Grace will feature, but not as the first name. Alice Grace would by my choice.

I hope for a girl. I think the name is hard to guess and could be totally unconventional

I'm now totally confused? Is the constitution now changed for a girl to inherit instead of a younger brother now?

My guess is that Princess Charlene will have a lovely boy.

The line of succession is male preference primogeniture. If this child is a girl she will be first in the line of succession, but could be displaced by later children if they're male unless the succession is changed.

Prior to 2002, the succession only allowed for direct succession - whoever inherited had to be a descendant of the current prince. Under that succession, if Albert had died without legitimate children then Monaco would cease to be independent of France. This succession was changed to allow the siblings of the monarch and their children to inherit - so, while Albert is Prince, his sisters, their children, and their grandchildren (at least those who have been legitimized) would be in the succession, and if there is no one who is eligible to inherit then a more distant descendant of the House of Grimaldi will be selected via the Crown Council.

So excited to finally guess for a Monaco baby!

For a boy: Rainier, Honore or Charles
A girl: Louise, Marguerite or Antoniette

Boy: Charles Albert Honore
Girl: Louise Marguerite Juliette

I'm leaning towards a boy.

I really like the name Louise if its a girl.

Louise Hippolyte, Princess of Monaco was the only Sovereign Princess of Monaco to reign,but sadly it was a brief reign ; 20th of February 1731 –
29th of December 1731.The Princess died of smallpox.
February 12th, 1517 -Death of Catherine Ier, Queen of Navarre

No idea... IMO an name that suits both french and english language is the most likely.. (Like for Caroline, Albert or Stephanie)

I really have no idea what this baby is, which is odd, as I usually get vibes.

I'm starting to go with girl, not sure why and if so we can certainly expect the name Grace

My very first speculative thought was, "Is there male pattern baldness in her family?" so my radar is pointing to a boy. Philippe? And if we can believe the tabs, Queen Maxima has been a friendly supporter of Charlene. Frankly I'd love to see Max Maxing it to the Max at the christening!

the go Maxima, godmother of Prince Albert was the former last queen of Spain, perhaps they will choose Queen Maxima for godmother, Charlene said queen Maxima was supporting her or perhaps they will choose Princess Stéphanie as godmother

For a godfather perhaps Pierre Casiraghi , he seems very closed to Prince Albert.

I have no idea the baby's sex, name, godparents, but my only hope is that s/he is born healthy & happy with all 10 fingers & toes.

That said, I have to honest and say for Albert's sake I wish a baby girl that is a carbon copy of his beloved mother Grace Kelly, whom he was so close to and vice versa, her only son. At least we know the baby will have naturally blonde hair & blue eyes like Grace.

Girl: Grace Ghislaine or Alice Grace
Boy: Francois Michel or Jean Michel Francois

Not sure if boy or girl so how about twins, but leaning towards a girl.

Godparent: My lst thought was maybe Albert's daughter Jazmin.
I know, a bit crazy, but what better way to connect his other children to Monaco, Charlene & the new baby.

The Grimaldi family seem to be quite traditional with regards to godparents, one relative from mother's side one relative from father's side, except for the heirs at the time of their birth (imo)
so i wouldn't be surprised if someone like Q.Maxima was asked, however seeing the difficulties Charlene obviously had in adjusting to the royal world, i'd wish for her that one of the godparents will come from her family...
