Why wouldn't she? You are allowed to travel in a plane up until the 8th month.

It would have to be a boy for a child to inherit, is that correct?

No, a boy would inherit first but if it's a girl and she never has a brother, she'll inherit.

Although if they do have a girl, I hope they institute equal primogeniture

There can be no such thing as "equal primogeniture". Primogeniture is based on inequality - inequality between siblings. Absolute primogeniture removes just one aspect of it. Anyway, I don't think it's likely that they will have more than one child; both are getting past reproductive age and I doubt they had an easy time conceiving this baby.

But that brings a problem. Should they have only one child, she or he will probably be childless upon accession. In such a scenario, there would be no-one in the line of succession to the throne! Albert's sisters and their descendants would drop out of the line upon the accession of Albert's child. This is because only the monarch's descendants, siblings and siblings' descendants can be in the line of succession.

Albert and Charlene's childlessness would not cause a succession crisis (Caroline would inherit, with several children and grandchildren to follow). Their having only one child would.

But here I am, blabling about succession issues that might trouble what is now an embryo!

What sweet news! I went back over the last three months of Charlene's fashion thread, and in some of the pictures you could see a knowing glow, and in others, poor Charlene was verrrrry pale. Hope she'll have a better time of it from here on out.

Kotroman, even if Albert and Charlene has one child, boy or girl , this child will be the their, after there will be Caroline, Andréa and his son.

They may have other children, Charlene is 36, she may have other children. Alexia of Greece had many children after this age. she was older than Charlene.

Many persons believed Charlene was pregnant in seeing this report in live made by a local reporter at 12 h 06, there is a photo of Charlene very tired putting her hand before her mouth as she had a nausea and under the photo, Princess Charlene isolats in a next room Albert goes to the buffet(cocktail), The reporter said some hours after Charlene had n unwell, I had this report but untill now, I do not try to post this report because I would be removed.

Spain and Sweden announced it was a girl, before the birth, wonder if Charlene will choose to know beforehand?

I hope regardless of the child's gender they institute equal primogeniture. Better to do it now, while she's pregnant and before the gender is known.

They may have other children, Charlene is 36, she may have other children. Alexia of Greece had many children after this age. she was older than Charlene.

Caroline and her family are only in the succession while Albert is alive.

The succession is such that the descendants of the monarch, the siblings of the monarch, and the descendants of the siblings of the monarch are included in the line of succession.

If Albert and Charlene only have one child then when he/she becomes monarch there won't be anyone in the line of succession unless it's changed again. However, the current succession allows for this to happen and if this child were to die without children or siblings (knock on wood), then a regency would be established until a Crown Council selected a new monarch from the broader descendants of the House of Grimaldi.

Felicitations! I just heard the news. It seems there has been so much speculation and now it is all settled.

I wonder if Albert's other children will be allowed to have a relationship with their sister or brother or both (if it's twins!).

I never said otherwise. If an only child were to succeed, however, there would be no-one in the line.

You'll find that some women had children in their fifties, and some in their sixties through IVF. It doesn't mean that this is recommended or possible for everyone. But Charlene's age aside, Albert's in his late fifties now. Anyway, they may have another child; I just think that's becoming increasingly unlikely.

So happy for them. I think they both must be so happy as well. Last week I saw pictures of them looking really happy and affectionate towards each other so maybe this news is why.

What wonderful news to wake up to! :) Congratulations to the princely couple. As always, Albert and Charlene do things their way, and in their own time. Here's to hoping their critics and the media would back off now and let them enjoy every moment of this wonderful experience. I'm over the moon for them. (Relieved also, because I just didn't see the Casiraghi line descending Monaco's throne.)

This is wonderful news and I hope the child is healthy. I say this because Albert is 56 and Charlene is 36 and a child born to parents that old can have many problems both physical and mental. According to reports, she is about three months (or more) along and has probably had tests done already so, hopefully, they already know there are no problems.

Also, I hope a child will make Charlene look a bit more happy than she usually looks. She was the saddest bride I have ever seen and I have never really seen her looking happy. I sincerely hope this child brings her happiness.
