I think Japan will change succession and/or marriage law. Definitely one or the other, hopefully both!

I also think CP Masako will be more and more outgoing!

A couple of days late to the party as the previous years. Such an unfortunate habit I have taken on

Denmark:
* Absolutely no abdication from QMII. She stays on the throne, sassy and lovely as always. She will, however, put more of her… *ahem* art on public display. Us Danes won’t like it particularly much, but we’ll go watch it anyway because we all like her.
* Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will throw a big party in honour of their 10th wedding anniversary and I don’t think it’s unlikely that foreign royals will attend (Victoria, Daniel, Haakon and Mette-Marit for sure, perhaps some of the Greek cousins as well).
* Crown Prince Frederik (and Crown Princess Mary) take on a lot more public engagements from QMII and Prince Henrik, the elder.
* Prince Henrik, the younger, will start school in Møgeltønder in August (with him already being able to read, it seems quite plausible that they would let him start already).
* Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Alexander Johannsmann will announce a second pregnancy in mid-2014. A baby girl (Astrid or Xenia) will be born either in late 2014 or early 2015.

Greece:
* King Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in Greece.
* Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana will announce a pregnancy in March/April. A baby boy (Aléxandros) will be born in September/October 2014.

Luxembourg:
* Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie will announce a pregnancy in late 2014. A baby girl (Marie-Alix or Charlotte-Alix) will be born in mid-2015.
* Prince Félix and Princess Claire will announce a pregnancy in spring. A baby boy (Hugo or Léopold) will be born in late 2014.

Monaco:
* Prince Albert and Princess Charlene will announce a pregnancy in late 2014. A baby girl (Grace or Antoinette) will be born in 2015.
* Charlotte Casiraghi might get engaged to Gad Elmaleh, but they wont get married just yet.
* Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo will get engaged around summer 2014.

Netherlands:
* Prince Jaime and Princess Viktória will welcome a baby girl (Anna or Emma) will be born in February 2014.

Sweden:
* Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel will announce a second pregnancy in spring 2014. They will welcome a baby boy (Carl-Edmund) in late 2014.
* Prince Carl Philip will split up with Sofia Hellqvist.
* Princess Madeleine and Christopher O’Neill will welcome a baby girl (Alice or Saga) in late February 2014.

UK:
* The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will release pictures/have a photoshoot feat. the little Prince George in connection to with their visit to Australia and New Zealand.
* The Duchess of Cambridge will take over Wimbledon from The Duke of Kent.
* Prince Henry will split up with Cressida Bonas.
* Princess Beatrice and Dave Clark will get engaged early in the summer. They will get married in late 2014 or early 2015.
* Zara and Mike Tindall will welcome a baby girl (Alice or Philippa) in January 2014.
* The Earl and Countess of Ulster will announce a third pregnancy in spring 2014. The will welcome a baby boy (Hector or Rafe) in late 2014.
* I guessed on this for 2013 as well and it obviously didn’t happen but I’m gonna try my luck again this year: perhaps a surprise engagement for Lady Gabriella Windsor?

Here my predictions for the royal familes I know:
SPAIN: more troubles for Cristina and worse health for the King ( He'd better abdicate IMO).
SWEDEN: I think Madeleine's daughter will be born in mid-Fbruary and one of her names will be "LILIAN" (not the first). Maybe a pregnancy announced in late 2014 for Victoria.
MONACO: I think Charlotte and Gad will split up. Maybe a wedding for Andrea (religious) or even Pierre (unlikely IMO) Less unlikely other children to come... I don't think Charlene will have one.
BRITISH FAMILY: Hmmmm... Let's see... Health problems for Philip, Queen reducing her engagements more and more. Very busy year for Will and Kate. Maybe a wedding for Beatrice. I don't think we'll see further pregnancies. I have a feeling Kate and William would like to wait George is a bit older.

I think that:

SWEDEN: Obviously Madeleine will have her girl but I think late February. Crown Princess Victoria will announce a pregnancy in either spring or later on this year (I.e winter)

UK: Zara and Mike will have a little boy around the 17th January. Maybe a pregnancy announcement for Will and Kate in the summer or early autumn?!

I dont' think Will and Kate will have another baby this year. They will think of a second pregnancy when P.George is at least one year old- But there's the royal tour etc. Nope. No baby this year

Sweden:
February 23rd(or 24, i dont understand the wikiarticle about ice hockey at the winter olympics) just as the mens hockey final in the olympic is to begin between Sweden and Russia princess Madeleine is reported to have gone into labor and is at a hospital in New York/Stockholm and the media servers in Sweden collapse under the stress(atleast Aftonbladet and Expressen as they try to cover both in real time). The baby will be named Lillian and become dutches of Västmanland

In August Madeleine announces she is with child again

Victoria announces she is pregnant yet again in September

Carl-Philip and Sophia either get engaged or split up.

More cute pictures of Estelle

UK:
Andrew and Fergie move in together and are talking about remarriage
Kate and Will announces second child
Harry gets engaged

I love how people "predict" that Princess Madeleine will have her first child this year, as if that had not been known for half of 2013

I strongly doubt the Queen of the Netherlands will have any more children. She is 42, very busy and simply does not need to. The Princess of Asturias is also unlikely to have any more children. Aside from the currently toxic atmosphere at the Spanish royal court, it should be noted that the Princess is 41, and that her last child was born almost 7 years ago. Both women seem to be done reproducing.

Anyway, threads like these should be named "What You Hope Will Happen to the Royals in XXXX". It seems that most people write what they hope will happen (rather than what is likely to happen) anyway

That would involve quite a lot of tampering with the Constitution, probably far too much for a mere "honor". It would be easier to grant them a brand new title

What speculations? The older take precedence over the younger, of course. Or am I missing something?

If Albert and Charlene have children then those children will be in the line of succession before Caroline and her children - thus people will stop speculating that one day Andrea will be Prince of Monaco.

Of course, but if they don't, it's Caroline, then Andrea, then his son, then Pierre, followed by Charlotte and her son. No speculation there

Why almost everyone predict or want to see Victoria pregnant again? I think it's cool she's got a daughter already. I don't think that every royal need to have at least 2 kids

It's all about the "heir and spare".

It's a kind of unwritten rule of Royalty. When you are a Monarch - or a future Monarch, like Crown Princess Victoria - you must have at least two children, to secure the succession.

I'm nit saying it happens all the time, but it's quite commom with the Royals.
