A good friend of mine tried for years to have a child without success. Finally last year at age 34 she conceived and when the doctor told her it was twins she almost collapsed. She cried for days because she was overwhelmed-and horrified-at the idea of twins with the limited finances of herself and her husband.

The twins-a boy and a girl-were born last Christmas Day. And I have never in my life seen anyone so transported with love and joy. As of today, she has refused to return to work because she wants to devote herself 100% to her babies and not miss a minute of their development, despite the strain of making ends meet on only her husband's salary.

I agree with Lady Nimue. Charlene and Albert-if the rumors are true-will have none of the initial worries and stress my friend did. They will have all the help they need. Twins or not it's a win-win for them.

I have a question: does anybody know how the birthh will be announced? Since it has passed 56 years from the last birth of an heir(Albert) I wonder how the things will go... for example: will they stick up to the tradition and put the communiquè outisde the palace? What about the cannons? How many shots? Thanks.

I have a question. What if Prince Albert, god forbids, died before the birth? Would his son-to-be inherit the throne at his birth or would Caroline inherit the throne?

Yes, TheRoyalCourtier, he or she would be the Prince/ss Sovereign of Monaco from birth. There is, in fact, precedent of such an occurance; king Alfonso XIII of Spain. He was the posthumous son of Alfonso XII and Maria Christina of Austria, who acted as regent till her son was 16 years old. The throne was vacant until the birth.

Altough in this case, I'm not so sure whether it would be Charlene or Caroline, who would would be regent. As Caroline is the Hereditary Princess until the birth of her niece/nephew...

Someone on another forum said that Charlene's Aunt in S. Africa has told a magazine there that it IS twins. Does anyone know anything else about this story?

I think I read that too in the same forum... There is no source or link but we cannot know more anyway... My personal opinion it's that I'm getting more and more convinced about the twins story but no facts so far

Oh yes, I need to see her with her bump. I believe more and more about the twins, it would be so easy to say something including "the baby" and then the message would be passed.

There has been no confirmation from the Palace that Charlene is expecting twins. The only sources is her father and aunt. Maybe the Palace is waiting for her to be further along in he pregnancy to announce it or waiting to know the sex of the babies and will announce it then or simply she is not expecting twins.

I'd be content to just see a happy, healthy, pregnant Princess Charlene out and about some time soon. She seems to have been gone for ages and the last time we did see her she appeared quite wan, which makes me think perhaps she is not enjoying a particularly easy time.

If I am wrong I will be glad for it because this really should be one of the happiest times of her life. Perhaps she feels she just can't cope with a heavy onslaught of voracious paparazzi demanding intimate answers as to just what is going on in her womb. It's no ones business except Charlene and Albert and a pregnant Charlene is, understandably, vulnerable.

Isn't Marquis of Baux the title bestowed on the first male heir apparent or heir presumptive to the Monegasque throne?

I totally agree. But, Monaco's paparazzi aren't exactly as voracious as the usual paps. Those laws in Monaco really eliminate them.

Still, I was just thinking how weird it must be to have photographers call for a photo and seeing all these cameras zoomed in on her stomach instead of her face.

I need to catch up here. So why are we not seeing Charlene out and about exactly? I would think she should be well enough by now to be able to do things. Unless of course she will be sick the whole time. I was just curious.

To me, it is obvious that Charlene is not feeling especially sturdy currently. That should be enough reason for her to not be seen as much.

I think Charlene is doing the right thing by laying low and keeping things calm. I believe she has had early-term miscarriages since the wedding and if that spec. is true, she's doing the right thing.

Charlene, darlin', stay home and return to the limelight when you're a mummy.
