What succession? Germany is a republic.

That is interesting! If they have one of each, and the boy is born second, will it mean he is the heir?

Yes, if Georg Friedrich and Sophie have twins - a boy and a girl, then the boy (whether the elder or the younger twin) will be the heir. If both babies are boys, the one born first will be the heir, while the younger twin will be the spare.

Line of Succession to the former German Throne is based on Agnatic Primogeniture, meaning females are completely excluded; a girl thus will have no succession rights.

Twins - Georgs just takes the cake!!

First he is the only hereditary/ reigning Head in his generation of a ruling/former ruling royal family that marries a real princess and then twins for the first pregnancy.
So much luck - so I'll bet they'll have at least one boy.

But now I think they'll wait a little time to get further children.

If it is true then this is great news. Twins are double bliss and Georg and Sophie are such a cute and likeable couple.

I hope for at least one girl. Every father needs a girl to spoil. Two girls would be nice.

AFAIK didn´t the uncle of GF said that it doesn´t really matter, because GF could change it? If they have two girls, they could of course then. But I´m not sure now.

I guess as Head of the House he could theoretically do so.
I'm not sure about the process though, or whether any changes would be recognised by other family members (dynasts).

I don't think it should matter who is the next heir. Prussia does not have a ruling family any more any way. But if both babies are girls, Sophie will have to try again to get a boy, even if there is no legal ruling family of Prussia. How strange!

Oh, I don't know. Maybe another set of twins, followed by triplets...
As a proud but exhausted auntie of two sets of twins (both my siblings had a set within months of each other), I do hope twins is the most they'll get though.

Is it officially confirmed, that they are expecting twins?
Or still musings?
