Does anyone know if we might get the sex of the baby before the birth? I don't know how it works... But I get the feeling that no other information will be given, right?

I hope the baby is a girl. I don't really understand how the Monaco Royalty works, but hope that if their first child is female, she is next in line to the throne if she is meant to be. I place as great importance on female lineage as I do males (if that makes sense) !

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.
Agree with all of the above. Charlene does appear to have a very sad demeanour - when she smiles even her eyes don't light up I personally have never really taken to Prince Albert - he seems to be too cocky to me. So I hope she has a lot of help and support from her own family and friends with this new baby.

Congratulations!!! I need to be honest, I was anxious and afraid they would never have children. But finally it happened. I'm so pleased and delighted.
I hope for a safe delivery and healthy baby.

Happy, happy, happy for the family. Nothing like having to endure a really bad movie about your Mom to send good things your way. My fingers and toes are crossed for great health for all.
That was not an unhappy face, you all, that was her nervous face.

The chances of the baby being healthy are pretty high. Charlene's age does not yet put her in any risk ranges yet (not for fetal health and only just slightly for fertility issues).

Albert is older, but with conscientious care, it should be ok.

I should think that Charlene is superbly fit and healthy.
I had my first child when I was aged 37 (as my mother was when I was born) and had my second child 18 months later, just before my 39th birthday.
I don't see Charlene's age being an issue at all!

Alas, I'm so very happy for the entire House of Grimaldi (how proud his parents would be).

And the little one will have lots of relatives around to keep him/her company (i.e. Andrea & Charlotte's respective baby sons). As well as grown up relatives as well (aka Aunties & Cousins).

Here's hoping for a carbon copy of Grace Kelly for her only son, Prince Albert. At least we know the baby will have naturally blonde hair & blue eyes just like Grace. :)

A quick reminder of TRF rules, because it looks like this is going to be a long pregnancy. In particular, please note the following:
  • Insulting comments about other posters and royals are not permitted. Criticism is acceptable; insults and flames are not. We expect our members to treat each other with respect.
  • Whenever possible, opinions should be based on factual information obtained from reputable sources and should be backed up by references to those sources. The moderators reserve the right to delete posts containing the more fanciful types of gossip and speculation, whether they originate in gossip magazines and websites or are simply fabricated.

If you need to review the TRF rules, you will find them here

What delightful news. Let's all say a prayer for a healthy and safe pregnancy and delivery. Both of Charlene's brothers have recently become fathers. Andrea Casiraghi and Charlotte Casiraghi both became parents last year. Albert and Charlene have been surrounded by new babies in their families recently. No doubt many in Monaco have been on a pregnancy watch since Albert and Charlene married. That kind of pressure must be uncomfortable. I am so happy for them.

So she's three months along by now, since there are six months left and she's due at the end of the year.

My sentiments exactly! It will be so wonderful to see this woman who so obviously adores children finally become mother to a little one of her own.

Congratulations to TSH, and to the citizens of the Principality of Monaco!

If it's true that Charlene is about three months along it means that she is due to give the Principality an heir around National Day in November.

I can't think of anything more triumphant for this couple. They had their magnificent wedding almost destroyed by lies and unseemly rumors and have faced mostly ridicule about their marriage and their relationship ever since.

He who laughs last, laughs loudest is all I can say.

While I am rather thinking of December (well, we will know by then ) I am completely with you on the other remarks. The more I am thinking about it, the more I am happy with the Couple. AND: that the future heir(ess) will remain in the "main line".
