Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess! This is very exciting news.

The baby news are confirmed on the Duke's official site
"Gens de France", in the article about their pilgrimage to
Santiago de Compostela it is said that they ended their
trip as three and can announce happy news. Although I
felt you were already able to see a little pregnant belly
on those pics I had posted ;)

"Aujourd'hui, ils le terminent pour ainsi dire à trois, ayant la
joie d'annoncer un heureux événement."

Here's the link to that page:

Apparently the baby was conceived before the wedding.

If yes or no , this is absolutely private..
Prince Jean is not that young and I am very happy for them and his family

It is great news. It is the first and foremost duty of Duke and Duchess of Vendome to secure the dynasty.

Congrats to them the house willl continue through this child espically if it is a boy.
And it is a girl it is still is exciting to know that they are blessed to have an offspring.

The House of Orléans is quite secure dynastically. There are currently over a dozen Orléans Princes, all descendants of the late comte and comtesse de Paris.

I have an issue of "Point de Vue" from 2004 which was dominated by a huge family tree of the Comtesse de Paris which, then, measured the size of the family in hundreds!

Iceflower, thank you very much for the pictures! :flowers:

Princess Philomena looks absolutely beautiful, pregnancy certainly suits her. Judging by the pictures, Philomena has adjusted well to the Royal life: she looked elegant and effortlessly graceful.
I can't wait to see their little one. :smile:

rominet09 09-24-2009 07:15 PM

Very nice couple, when is the baby due ?

Marsel 09-24-2009 08:10 PM


The baby is expected in late 2009, probably in the second half of December. :smile:
