They weren't private when they were born and presented to the monegasques, they weren't private when they appeared on the palace balcony on National Day, when they were growing up, when the monegasque Constitution was modified to allow Andrea to inherit the throne... Yes, it's silly not to announce a fact that sooner or later will impose itself as obvious ( do they think they'll be able to hide the child till he'll be 21 and join the army???? ) and it's somewhat desrespectful towards the monegasques who, over the years, always pledge their loyalty and affection towards the Grimaldi family, most especially towards P. Caroline and her children ( the Princess herself said in 1985 in an interview she gave to Barbara Walters " it's like a big family here in Monaco "... )...
Perfectly said.
Never ever Caroline has hidden her children from limelight. And the trio has been in front stage since their tender age.
And evem Stephanie who hate fame has never hide a birth.
From where did this crazy idea come that the baby is born and they are hidding it?

Karl Lagerfeld is directing the Rose Ball this year. That may be an indication that the baby is due around that time.

Great point! It crossed my mind, but wasn't sure if it was just wishful thinking again! I still believe Caroline will definitely be there though, don't you? She's only ever missed 1991, right?

.

Once again there is a lot of speculation going on - twins, a clandestine birth and more - as said before let us please be fair, stop speculating and wait for solid, official information, this speculative discussion isn't getting us anywhere. Thanks!

Hola makes an update on the course of events, publishing a photo of Tatiana still pregnant with Dana Alikana. However, the magazine doesn't say when this photo was taken, wich leaves room to the possibility of the baby being already born, possibility article itself clearly admits...

Tatiana Santo Domingo, en la recta final de su embarazo | Realeza | Noticias hola.com

http://Tatiana Santo Domingo, en la ...de su embarazo

An attempt of translation...
Tatiana Santo Domingo, in the final stages of her pregnancy and his fiancee Andrea Casiraghi, Tatiana Santo Domingo, are counting the days t to become parents. The couple will welcome their first child in a very short time (....).

^^just for curiosity that picture was posted on their instagram 7 hours ago. Obviously, that DOESN'T mean it was taken 7 hours ago. But could be a hint...

Oooh, intriguing! If not recent, then it could be from when we know she was in London with Dana a month ago. But I hope it's recent!

Thanks Lazuli!

ETA: it was definitely taken in London and *seems* to be recent!

You're most welcome Ready4Royalty, but Hola published an update on the former article. Take a look:

Tatiana Santo Domingo despeja todas las dudas: está a punto de concluir su dulce espera

http://Tatiana Santo Domingo despeja...u dulce espera

I'll try to translate the article...

ParisMatch also writes about Tatiana. Apparentely she's in London with her friend Dana working on their new showroom for Muzungu Sisters...

I think this feels like the longest pregnancy ever because of all the speculation around the time of the engagement. However if they got engaged in June and were expecting at that time then she should be due any day.

I wonder if this means she will be able to attend the Rose Ball? If she's able to work, then I hope she (and Andrea) can attend the ball!

too many speculations and theories.
i counsel to wait for the real facts...the truth, not just assumptions based on pictures and whatever the papers have reported.

The weirdest thing is... I don't know why everybody talks about her being pregnant when they anounced the engagement as if it were a fact.
As far as I know no one in the family has ever said so.
Maybe she simply wasn't pregnant when they got engaged.

I think so too, Trepstep. Either she wasn't aware of the pregnancy at that time or wasn't pregnant at all. Because announcing an engagement based on the earliest suspicion of pregnancy doesn't make sense to me, especially if they weren't going to rush the wedding.

I believe it's because of pictures taken at the engagement party. From what I recall, that's what got the rumors really started.

^^ You're right, HRHHermione. The engagement party pics showed Tatiana with a bit of a belly and the pregnancy rumours spread. When she first confirmed the pregnancy in Madrid, everyone concluded this was a confirmation that the rumours of July were true and led everyone to believe she was in a much more advanced stage of her pregnancy than she really was. Now we can see that the belly we saw in July was not a pregnancy belly because she was either not pregnant or if she was, it was at such a beggining stage she had no pregnancy belly at all.

Yeah, the ones in the pink kaftan? I think those were taken the day after the engagement party (the 16/17th?).

If she wasn't pregnant (or didn't know) at the party, that could better explain why she was smoking. I haven't seen her smoke since then, at least.
