Maybe HGD Stephanie will have twins. Isn't Guillaume of Orleans-Braganca? I do not know about the various Braganca lines, so I don't know if he is Orleans-Braganca. But his aunt and uncle were twins.
When I was sick during early pregnancy (same "gravidus" as Duchess of Cambridge) the doctor said, how I hope you have twins so you won't have to do this again! (my husband had many twins in his family). Am I the only one who wonders how Kate could want another pregnancy under the circumstances? It's not just a little headache!

No, Mariel. The Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg is a member of the House of Bourbon-Parma, but his great-great-grandmother was a Infanta Maria Ana of Portugal, a member of the House of Braganza (ancestor House of the Orleans-Braganzas), who became Grand Duchess of Luxembourg.

Grand Duchess Maria Ana was daughter of King Miguel of Portugal. The Imperial Family of Brazil (House of Orleans-Braganza) descends of Emperor Pedro I (King Pedro IV of Portugal), brother of King Miguel.

But Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg is a second cousin of Prince Rafael of Brazil, because their share the late Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg as great-grandmother.

Now, I made me think about that Prince Rafael and his sisters, Princesses Amélia and Maria Gabriela can have twin children, because this genetical "trait" runs in the House of Orleans-Braganza and in the House of Bourbon-Parma.

Not only Prince Jean of Luxembourg and Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein are twins, their brother, Prince Guillaume, is father of twins, Prince Léopold and Princess Charlotte of Nassau.

If HGD Stephanie has twins; then I guess the heir/ess apparent will be whichever twin is born first, this was the case with Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie of Prussia's twins, Prince Carl Friedrich was born first so he became the heir.

It would be interesting to know if there has ever been a case where royal twins have reigned together, but I doubt it.
