Haakon immediately passes on to others any footwear that he receives as gifts for Xmas and birthdays. He is a generous man!

No tiara appearance for Elisabeth

Voices of abdication, but Margrethe finishes her New Year's speech singing
They tried to make me go into retirement
but I said, "no, no, no"

Girl for Guillaume and Stéphanie

Pregnancy for Louis and Marie

Hakkon takes on regency again after his father goes on a minor medical leave

Talks of a monarchy/republic referendum will be on the table during negotiations with Catalan separatists
Leonor surprises everyone and speaks in fluent euskara too

Madeleine moves back to Sweden

No pregnancy in the main line, yes for Lady Gabriella
Regency announcement
DoE keeps sailing towards 100 years

TBH I also think we will witness a major royal funeral but it's a bit creepy to write it down next to a real person name

LOL I love that.

Anyway, to stay on topic, here are my predictions.

  • Beatrice and Edoardo get married
  • A boy for Eugenie and Jack
  • Andrew appears significantly less, if not at all
  • Pregnancy announcement for Harry and Meghan

  • Kei Komuro finally gets his financial issues sorted out as one step forward to marrying Princess Mako
  • Debate on allowing women in the line of succession and head their own imperial family branches intensifies

  • A girl for Guillaume and Stephanie (What if they name her Alix after Steph's late mother?)
  • Alexandra enters a relationship, if she doesn't have one yet
  • Sébastien enters a relationship

  • Pregnancy announcement for Louis and Marie
  • Pauline enters a relationship
  • Engagement announcement for Jazmin and Ian

  • Engagement announcement for Märtha Louise and Shaman Durek

  • Leonor makes more appearances as she prepares her role as future queen
  • Felipe tries to increase support for the monarchy amid a dreaded referendum on the monarchy

UAE (Dubai)
  • Pregnancy announcement for Hamdan and Shaikha

  • Pregnancy announcement for Leka and Elia

  • Rafael enters a relationship (my money's on a Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen princess)

  • Theodora and Matthew announce wedding date
  • Philippos and Nina announce wedding date
  • Maria Olympia enters a relationship

  • Reza encourages more monarchist demonstrations in Iran

Sweden -
Incoming State Visits from Spain, Netherlands and Belgium with lot’s of State Banquets and Tiara appearances after a 2019 almost without any sparkle.

Even more focus on Victorias Family while Carl Philip and Sofia continues with their charity.

Princess Madeleine will only turn up for family celebrations and the Nobel Festivities from now on.

Norway -
Princess Ingrid Alexandra takes on more official duties.

Princess Märtha Louise meets a new boyfriend with a ”normal” job and (finally) ends her controversial relationship with the shaman.

Denmark -
Queen Margrethe celebrates her 80:th Birthday in the typical ”Margrethe-way” with a 3-day Gala.

Prince Joachim and Princess Marie decides to settle permanently in France and only goes to Denmark occassionally.

UK -
Charles takes over even more work from The Queen.

The Queen announces a date for when she will trigger the Regency Act and make Charles ”Prince Regent” and in charge of everything while she remains the symbolic Head of State for the rest of her life.

Prince Andrew is forced to stop as Colonel of the Grenadier Guards after the regiment makes it clear for The Queen that they will under no circumstances accept being represented by him.

More focus on Anne, Edward and Sophie to show that they will be in Charles and Camilla’s ”support group”, replacing The Gloucester’s and Kent’s.

Belgium -
King Philippe celebrates his 60:th Birthday low key as usual.

Princess Elisabeth attends her first State Banquet, wearing a tiara we haven’t seen before.

Monaco -
Albert and Charlene appears more together to stop rumours of a divorce.

Thailand -
The King and Queen makes outgoing state visits.

Japan -
The Imperial Couple makes outgoing State visits. Masako feels better and more secure in herself as she is now ”in charge” of the female court.

The troublesome small line of sucession continues to be discussed but without anything of significance happening.

I do hope we don't see a dreaded referendum on the monarchy in Spain as I don't hold out much hope for the Borbons!

Elisabeth attends a state banquet in tiara (my guess is her birthday present from nobles worn as tiara)
-defo a big 3 day event for Queen M's birthday
-Marie and Joachim move to France longer term creating fuss over appanage
-Alex will loose appanage and take on commercial roles in business (think we already know she said she would give it up when Felix turns 18 which is in 2020)
-Scandal involving MT and Cour's staff (as we saw this year)
-Tessy releases a book containing details of her time in the family
-Baby girl called Charlotte Alix for Gui and Steph
-Serious relationship for Alex
-Even fewer appearances by Charlene leads to (even more) intense speculation about marriage
-Some sort of financial scandal / attempt by media to create a scandal
-ML and her boyfriend create more headlines. Either she will dump him or announce engagement suddenly
-Feel its been a bit too quiet for them so I predict a scandal of some sort which Vic's popularity and humbleness is needed to get RF through
-Baby / pregnancy announcement for CP and S
United Kingdom
-we will see the Queen less and less and it will become clearer Charles is taking over in many ways
-Further scandal for Andrew with official investigations into his Pitch@Palace and or use of official travel causing more headaches
-Beatrice marries in a small private service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in grounds of Royal Lodge with most pics and insight coming from her celeb friends in attendance
-William and Kate continue to do more and eventually take over Apartment 1 as office and official entertaining space whilst expanding their staff
-Anne and Edward/Sophie get greater focus as they are seen as supporting Charles
-Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra scale back as do Gloucesters

Do you mean one will be announced or one will be born? Because the royal in question would have to be 4-5 months gone now.

United Kingdom:

- Sussexes announce new pregnancy.
- Eugenie announces expecting her first baby.
- Cambridges are not expecting fourth child at any point.
- Dust has mostly settled around Andrew and he will not appear much anymore. Beatrice's wedding are during last months of 2020 and it is private event.
- The queen transfer more duties to Charles but she doesn't abdicate.


- Princess Leonor has more public duties.
- Juan Carlos has more of health problems.


- Elisabeth gets some public duties.


- Prince and princess of Monaco expect their third child.


- Märtha Louise announce engagement with her shaman boyfriend (hopefully I am wrong) and Norweigians are not happy.


- Carl-Philip and Sofia announce expecting third child.
- We will see even lesser Madeleine and she visits only on official events (king's and Victoria's birthday, national day and perhaps on Nobel event).


- There is some debate over allowing women enter to Chrysanterium Throne or taking collaretal branches back to imperial line of succession but anything will not change.

I wouldn't be surprised to have multiple BRF babies in 2020. I fully expect Meghan to be pregnant in the next year and wouldn't be shocked if Eugenie had her own special announcement. And of course Cambridge #4 could happen.

That would be quite a year if all three happened but I will predict at least one.
