I was wondering whether Charlene will give birth in a hospital, or in the palace? Has it been said?

Well it would be very old-fashioned if she gave birth at the palace. But charming at the same time... Anyway defintely Grace hospital

I just read the entire interview of Prince Albert.


Albert said that it is not sure princess Charlene will be present at the Te deum but she will be present in the yard of honor and at the Balcony , she will not be present to the gala at the evening


She is well and serene but he does not want she spares that everything will go welll.


The birth is around Christmas but as it is a pregnancy of twins, the birth will be around 10 days before.


If it is a boy and a girl, it will be the boy who will be prince hereditary prince, it it is 2 boys , it will be the first boy who will be the hereditary prince , if it is 2 girls, it is the first who will born whobe the hereditary princess, but if they have in the future a boy after the two daughter, he will take the hereditary title before her elder sister.


He does not know the gender of the babies but the Princess Charlene knows the gender, he asked her not to say him what are the gender of the babies. Princess Charlene keeps the secret, he said that in the life , there are not a lot of happy news to learn also he wants to have the surprise and the joy to discover the gender of his babies at the birth.


There will be a presentation of the babies to the people of Monaco on the place of the palace when the princess and their children will return to the palace , it will be a day without work this day for all the people who work in the principauty.


There are usually shots of canon, 21 for a girl and 101 for a boy as it is twins, the princess and the prince will do a surprise for the shots of canon.


I hope you understood my bad English.

Your written English isn't bad at all. Much better than I could do in French! Thank you for translating and posting the interview for us!

Thank you so much for taking the time to translate, Melina

I am honestly so disappointed in Albert that he won't change the male-preference cognatic primogeniture to absolute primogeniture. It is pure sexism. Especially considering how hard-working his sister is. Caroline is a prime example of an older sister to a monarch who would have made an excellent monarch herself. I am honestly hoping he'll have two girls and that with time, the eldest will prove herself to be ten times the monarch Albert is.

I agree completely. 1000%.

Not challenging this idea is, to me, very weak and shallow.

Imo it would be extra "sour" to P.Caroline if this was changed now, especially because she has done so much for the principality.
Best time to change it imo is when the heir and spare are both male and then change it for future heirs...

But at least a lit of things people were speculating on is now clear (and thank you Melina fir translating )

Wow that's great info! I wonder what the surprise about the cannons will be... I still think it's 2 boys and that the both know...It's their right to keep it as a secret though...

I would be delighted if one of the babies was at least one girl...

I disagree that it would be old-fashioned, since there is currently a trend for at-home births.

But a hospital might be safer and/or more convenient, I suppose.

Yes Mirabel , in France , there are a lot of women who want to give birth at home but it is dangerious if it happens someting wrong.


Charlene will give birth to the Princess Grace maternity, a birth of twins is risky.

Today she looked quite good but still fragile and tired! She is carrying 2 human beings so I guess it's tough! Hope everything goes well...

BTW I bet she will have a cesarean section...

Prince Albert said that the due date is around Christmas but as it is a pregnancy of twins , he said that the birth will be 0 days before the due date. i think that she may give bith during the second week of december. very soon.


The reporters of Monaco Channel and RMC said this morning that the day of the birth they will give news in direct. because there will be a lot of events.

What did Albert say about the suprise with the cannons? I didn't understand.... and since he says 10 days before I believe we should expect the birth about the 15th of December, and I guess in a working day, so the monegasque will have their day off

While I can definitely see what you mean, I do think Caroline would be happy for her niece. Caroline has always grown up knowing that unless her brother died childless (or, without legitimate children, that is), she wouldn't inherit the throne. Back then, unless there was no male heir, women just didn't inherit thrones in general. This is very different. Not only have most of the European monarchies adopted absolute primogeniture, this is also a case of a possible set of opposite sex twins that could see the girl born first yet be surpassed by her younger brother. That kind of old-fashioned thinking is just not suitable for this time and day and I am so disappointed in Albert for choosing not to recognise this.

I have to say, I get more excited the closer she gets to her due date.

She seems really happy in the balcony photos.

I was just thinking about how ready she must be.. the last month is awful, I can't imagine two in there. I'd say she'll manage to keep them in until about the 10th of December, from what Albert said.

It did, didn't it? Hopefully in two more weeks. Not that far away. A boy and a girl.

Princess Charlene and Prince Albert Expect Twins in 2014

Having read Melina Premier's helpful translation of the interview with Albert, I am hoping for twin girls 😉 I can't believe he maintains such an outdated and discriminatory attitude towards the succession. Shame on you Albert.
