Hardly "speculation", more like expectation!

Come on...., other pregnant ladies go to work. They fly Ryanair. They have to queue for tourists sightseeing boats with uncomfortable benches. Charlène flies with a private jet, she will be picked up by a brand new extended bullet- and bombfree armoured royalblue Audi limousine which 'floats' over the road due to its massive weight, her appartments at the royal palace will be provided with the utmost luxury imagineable. Let us not exaggerate please..... I still remember a heavily pregnant Princess Máxima in the last stage of pregnancy, with a swollen balloon but attending all exhausting three days of a State Visit in hot Turkey.... !
Morning sickness and large puddles don't mix, let alone boats or heaven forfend, planes! Whatever are you thinking;
- That all pregnant women are the same?
- That morning sickness is merely a little nausea first thing each morning?
- That morning sickness lasts only through the first trimester?

Charlene has certainly seemed more than a little off her game and if she is suffering from morning sickness she could be one of those unlucky women who end up hospitalised as did Catherine.

As to latter months, she could well be healthy and bouncing just like Maxima or, worst case senario, confined to bed for the last 4 - 6 months! We just don't know and that is the point. Any "expectation" you have of a pregnant woman is irrational. Every day is a new day and different.

It was announced straight away that CP Mary was expecting twins.

As it's highly speculative and an extremely, sensitive matter we won't discuss the possibilty of previous miscarriages, infertility or in vitro fertilization. Please stay respectful towars the persons you discuss. A couple of posts have been removed, as usual further off-topic, speculative or disrespectful posts will be deleted without notice. Thanks for your understanding!

Princess Charlene of Monaco pregnant with twins | Benoni City Times

Does this source have any credibility? Netherland's visit cancelled? Did her father really say this was the case?

It is doubtful her father would have stated this, as this would have to be officially confirmed by the Palace, first, which it has not been. So I think it is a false story, as no announcement from the Palace about twins has been made.

The only reliable and confirmed news:

- Charlène is expected to give birth at the end of this year

- Charlène has dropped out of the official two-day visit to the Netherlands

Derek is a very respected journalist; thanks everyone for that additional bit of information. Would be great if the Palace confirmed it, too.

Very exciting!! So we wait and see if anything official is confirmed?

I absolutely agree. I had to be confined to bed during my second pregnancy - and I was a healthy young (28) woman - but my body reacted in such a way that the bed rest was inevitable. It was worth it - my son was born healthy and not prematurely.
So Princess Charlene has to be very careful - better cancel some visit than risk anything, especially if she is having twins.

I'm thinking her dad was just teasing the press about the twins story.

Although the Palace has not denied, nor confirmed, the story?

Maybe they won't state anything further?

Would they even know this early?

What I find the most interesting at the news story of Mr Wittstock telling to the press about the pregnancy, is that he says that Charlene informed him about the pregnancy on the weekend of May 24, just a week before the official press release.

Significant in regards to? You mean her telling him about twins on the 24th May?

angiek-

It's simply a series of headlines speculating about the possibility that Charlene is carrying twins("Twins for Charlene and Albert"?) based on what her father said. It's pretty much a repeat of the conversation we have been having in these threads!

Many thanks. If true, and the cat is now out of the bag, it will be interesting to see what happens next week, officially, re twins?

There isn't much to say about a royal pregnancy that makes news other than the announcement of the impending birth itself. I seems as if tabloids and other press sources always say that Princess so-and-so is pregnant with twins. The supermarket tabloids in the USA now claim that The Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with twin girls. The twins story may or may not be true but what else can the press say about Princess Charlene's pregnancy? Morning sickness, tired, maternity wardrobe, the name of the baby, none of this is unique so hence the twins headlines. And well yes, her father is quoted as saying that there will be twins.

Soooo....either her dad *did* say it and his reporter-friend betrayed his trust in publishing it, or he didn't say it in which case he will deny saying it *or* Monaco palace has issued a media-silence for all family-members with only the palace issuing news from now on...

And we still have at least 6 months of waiting for the actual birth to go :)

Sigh...It sure will be fun to watch all these little ones grow over the next few years, huh!?!
It sure will. How cute would it be to see Baby Monaco, Sasha and Raphael on the balcony at National Day in the not too distant future? As well as George and Princess Anne's grandchildren at Trooping the Colour in the BRF. Oh, and I think the site would explode since there would be too much cuteness to handle if all the royal children (and babies/toddlers) got together for a picnic!

If Charlene has morning sickness, it could make it hard for her to keep her dignity through official engagements. For some of us (me definitely included) "morning" was a joke-word. It was all-day sickness. It would be most undignified to be on a boat and have to rush to throw up. She could not eat the "banquet" mentioned without risking more of the same.
I had to be fed intravenously due to malnutrition. But did recover at 3 l/2 months and was not sick again except one time when I ate shellfish. Similar to Catherine's pregnancy, very bad at first, easy later.

Unless, of course, they divorce right after the child is born

It is exciting that Charlene is pregnant, whether it be with twins or not. However, I think we should wait until an official announcement comes regarding her having twins, if this is indeed the case.
