First of all, football isn't an all-boys sport. Second of all, IIRC football wasn't mentioned specifically. Charlène is a former swimmer herself and I would be astonished if she and Albert didn't encourage their children, regardless of gender, to play sports and be active.

I always thought that the prince would change the law of primogeniture that he waited for a pregnancy of Charlene to do it I thinks that he did not do it because Charlene is expecting twins and it is easer with the actual law to know who will reign. The first born of the twins will reign if there are 2 boys and the boy will reign if it is a boy and a girl.

Albert said he did not know the gender but I think he knows and the twins will not be 2 girls because Prince would have change the law for the first elder girl.

There is no more monarchy with a law of primogeniture in Europe apart Monaco and perhaps the Lichtenstein principauty.

I too think it's two boys, and would be surprised to see a girl. I read some article (who knows if true...) that Albert does not know the gender but was nevertheless collecting balls for the kids. Hmmmm...

I'll bet we don't have much longer to wait. I put her at about 34 weeks, and it is twins. We might be seeing them sooner rather than later.

If it's twin girls, the elder will automatically succeed her father unless they have a younger brother. So there really wouldn't be any need to change the primogeniture right away if it's two girls.

No, She did not attend the opening of the aquatique center , there was no ceremony but the children of the school began the lessons this morning. Usually, the inauguration is taking place when all is already beginning. perhaps next week

As the birth is due in december perhaps in the first two weeks in december, I think that Charlene could not attend the fest national ceremony

I think she could at least make the effort of appearing at the balcony for few minutes

The appearing of the balcony does not last only few minutes, it lasts one hour, there iare the the revue of carabinieris, of the firemen, the is a concert of the carabinieris band , there are spectacles and so.
A pregnant woman of twins must be carefull because she has to take a lot of rest to avoid a too early birth with very small babies . It dépends of the advice of her doctors

Crowprincess Mary of Denmark took a rest from november 23 to january and she did not attend the cérémonies of new year in 2011 , she was expecting Vincent and Josephine

And Charlotte Casiraghi was pregnant last year and she was not present at the national fest cérémonies. Raphael is born on december 17th 2014

Yes but Charlotte is not the princess consort... She isn't even obliged to attend if she wants... We'll see I hope Charlene will attend

All the princesses who were expecting twins as Claire of Belgium and Mary of Denmark were not present during the two months before the birth of their children. Expecting twins is very difficult as I said you on the previous post. They may give birth too early . Princess Claire gave birth too early and her babies went in a neo natale section.

I agree with you, melina-premiere. I would not be surprised if Princess Charlene is not on the balcony in a couple of weeks. She must be very uncomfortable at this stage in her pregnancy.

I can't remember having any pictures of Princess Claire being pregnant with the twins seen.

I agree. It's more than reasonable if she opts out of the balcony appearance and she has every right to do that, Princess Consort or not.

I thought the birth was announced to be late in December. Like the last week in December? Early in December seems to be a change.

Anyway, can't wait. I hope Charlene is as comfortable as she can be right now.

I thought it was planned for the week after Christmas (29/30 or 31 December)

About the gender of the children: I think it is all speculation. Even the parents don't know the gender.
The only ones who will know (the medical staff) will remain silent!!
