A lot of the ladies you mention are 40+ and a lot of them are done with having babies!

RoyalHighness 2002 12-02-2016 06:40 PM

Don't a service of thanksgiving and big/ small party to mark Elizabeth II and Prince Philip's wedding anniversary.

HereditaryPrincess 12-02-2016 06:57 PM

What will happen to the royals in 2017?
 
I'll have a shot at this, last time I found it quite hard!



Britain

Zara and Mike Tindall will welcome a girl named Poppy Alexandra, a little sister for Mia Grace, in the spring.

Princess Charlotte will celebrate her second birthday in May with a photoshoot.

Savannah and Isla Phillips as well as Mia Tindall will appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the first time at Trooping the Colour.

Prince George will start his first day at school in September, most likely in London (I like the sound of Garden House School in Chelsea for him - Viscount Linley's daughter Margarita went there, so the school already has experience with royal [granted, Margarita isn't quite as significant in the terms of succession as George is] pupils).

Prince George will attend his first Christmas church service at Sandringham.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will announce their engagement in mid - late 2017, followed by a wedding in 2018.

We will finally see a photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle together (at any time of the year!)



Spain

Princess Leonor will attend her first Princess of Asturias event.

Infanta Sofia will celebrate her tenth birthday in April with a photoshoot.

Princess Leonor will start secondary school (if I've got the Spanish school ages correct! I read that secondary school starts at 12 but Leonor will be 12 in October, and IIRC her school starts in September?) in September with a photoshoot.



Sweden

I can't think of anything for Sweden right now.



Norway

Nothing for Norway either at the moment!



Luxembourg

HGD Guillaume and HGD Stephanie will announce a pregnancy in mid 2017, following a birth in 2018.



Belgium

Nothing for Belgium at the moment.



Monaco

Beatrice Borromeo and Pierre Casiraghi will welcome a boy in January.



Denmark

Princess Isabella celebrates her tenth birthday with a photoshoot.

Queen Margrethe will have a photoshoot with all her grandchildren for Christmas (I hope!)

Nothing for the Netherlands either, at the moment.

Koningin 12-03-2016 03:29 PM

Countessmeout 12-03-2016 07:53 PM

-Kate and will move to London finally as George starts school in fall
-Harry continues his work with veterans and pictures come out with Meghan
-engagement near end of year for Eugenie
-if will and Kate plan on third child, announcement by summer. Not convinced

Lux
-Stephanie and guillaume finally announce first pregnancy. Baby girl due end of the year or early 2018
-don't see a third child for Tessy. Since their youngest is nine, I don't see them adding. I think Claire and Felix will likely wait another year

Monaco
-Beatrice and piere welcome daughter Marta Caroline Paola
-possible engagement and or baby news for Charlotte

Belgium
-Laurent will continue to cause issues and his stipend will be removed or lessened
-Elisabeth will be seen at a few more events

Netherlands, Spain, Norway and Denmark

That would be scandalous, even by Monaco's standards.:tongue:


Btw, shouldn't this thread be in the Chit Chat sub forum, instead of the Archive Discussion sub forum? Maybe one of the mods will move it.

How do you define prominent? Monarch, Consort, and Heir Apparent?

Gretijean 12-15-2016 01:01 AM

My predictions:

UK:

Mike and Zara have a boy
Eugenie gets engaged and married.
William and Catherine will have announce a pregnancy.
Harry will continue his relationship with Meghan M. If they are still together by November, they will get engaged.

Greece:
Prince Nickolaos and Princess Tatiana will adopt a child

Luxembourg:
Guilliame and Stephanie will announce a pregnancy and give birth.

Greece or Luxembourg will have a royal wedding

Sweden:
Sofia will have a baby girl
Madeleine will have another baby boy.

Bhutan's royal couple will have another baby.

Not wishing bad luck or harm...
There will be a prominent royal that will pass, there will also be a prominent consort that will pass as well.

There will be 2 royal divorces next year.

Numerous people already have. Read away and perhaps share your own.

Lee-Z 12-15-2016 02:08 PM

Okay i'll play ;)

NL
no major differences from this year

Belgium
P.Laurent will be either cut from dotation or gets back in line with his royal duties
K.Albert/Delphine Boël situation will be settled in one way or other

UK
Engagement for P.Eugenie
More royal duties for Duke/Duchess of Cambridge

Spain
Difficult time for monarchy in general but K.Felipe and Q.Letizia will manage to keep the confidence of the people

Sweden
Loads of young family happiness (with many pics) but no new pregnancy in 2017

Norway
For some reason i feel that something big will happen, but don't know what...maybe abdication or major increase in duties of P.Haakon or rumours about P.Mette-Marit which turn out untrue but cause trouble nonetheless

Denmark
New family portrait, even more non-traditional than the last ;)

Monaco
P.Charlene continues to be more and more prominent, but P.Caroline will be seen less

Japan
More moves towards the idea of abdication but no abdication just yet

sarahbell86 12-15-2016 02:20 PM

Sweden
Pregnancy announcement for Madeleine and Chris in the summer, another boy.
Pregnancy announcement for Carl Philip and Sofia in the winter, a girl.

UK
A boy for Zara and Mike.
Engagement for Eugenie and Jack in the spring.
Engagement for Harry and Meghan in the fall.

Others
Engagement for Alexandra of Luxembourg
Pregnancy announcement for Amedeo and Elisabetta, another girl.

I also think we'll get a shocking high-profile divorce. I have a few guesses but I think it's best not to say who.

Marty91charmed 12-15-2016 05:00 PM

Oh,I think I will never be good at guessing... but I will have a got at the royal families I follow:

UK:
a boy for Zara and Mike, in late May. No idea of the name, but it will be quite unconventional.

Sweden:

a pregnancy announcement in the fall/winter from Sofia and CP.

Rather poor predictions, I know, but I can't think of anything else... at least about the positive things!

Bonnie Blue Butler 12-16-2016 03:18 AM

Here are my predictions :smile:

UK:
Zara and Mike Tindall will welcome a boy
Prince William and Duchess Kate will announce a third pregnancy and a second boy will be born
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will announce their engagement by the end of the year

Sweden:
Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill will announce a third pregnancy and they will have a second girl

Monaco:
Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo will welcome a girl
Charlotte Casiraghi will be back with Lamberto Sanfelice and they'll marry

Luxembourg:
HGD Guillaume and HGD Stéphanie will announce a first pregnancy and they will have a girl

Albania:
Crown Prince Leka and Crown Princess Elia will announce a first pregnancy and they will have a boy

Serbia:
Hereditary Prince Peter will announce his engagement

Aga Khan:
Prince Rahim and Princess Salwa will welcome a girl

Japan:
Change in succession law and abdication of Emperor Akihito

maria-olivia 12-16-2016 03:28 PM

I don't know if it is their easy life : no stress , people are waiting for them, excellent food prepared by Chefs. Coaches , Secretaries etc..
Their Children have nurses and nannies etc..
They are healty and 3 Royals are 95 years old.

My only sincere Wish is a first Child for the Heditary Grand Dukes of Luxembourg.

HRHHermione 12-16-2016 05:15 PM

I don't have much, but I think a third pregnancy for the Duchess of Cambridge will be announced early in the year (between January and March)

I hope for an engagement between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle late in the year- November or December

royal rob 12-17-2016 01:00 AM

I don't think there will be any pregnancy for Kate at least until after her sisters wedding
Another girl for Zara
No weddings for the York girls
Harry ???
William doing full time royal work
I think there might be some sad news too.

The people I am specifically thinking of are monarchs/former monarchs and spouses and their children.

Biri 12-27-2016 09:25 PM

Count and Countess of Dreux - a girl
Zara Philips Tindall will get pregnant again in late 2017.

Bamboleio 12-28-2016 10:03 AM

Duchess Catherine's third pregnancy would be announced most likely during the first half of the year.
I have no ideas about baby's gender and name at the moment

Bamboleio 12-28-2016 10:07 AM

Beatrice Borromeo will give birth to a baby girl

Neither have I, it's just a feeling I have. The Grand Ducal Family's personal relationships are usually quite private, so I have a feeling we won't know anything about any potential boyfriend of Alexandra's until the engagement announcement.

Moonmaiden23 12-28-2016 10:38 AM

:previous: Yes I agree. The privacy of the GD Family in Luxembourg is very much respected by the press in their small country. GD Maria Teresa recently gave an interview where she talked about how fortunate they feel about that.

HGD Guillaume was able to conduct his relationship with Stephanie de Lannoy completely under the radar for two years before European press began publishing rumors of an imminent engagement in late 2011.

It might be the same way for Alexandra...in fact I hope it will be!;)

Fürstin Taxis 12-28-2016 09:31 PM

I have no idea, but hope no funerals next year.

Iluvbertie 12-29-2016 12:15 AM

There will be at least one funeral - the King of Thailand's funeral will be next year sometime.

Fürstin Taxis 12-29-2016 12:52 AM

Of course, you are right! But you get what I mean. I don't want to think about it. So I wish good health for everyone next year.

Princess B 01-14-2017 11:11 AM

A pregnancy announcement for Zara and Mike in the latter half of the year.

A pregnancy announcement for the duke and duchess of Cambridge (spring 2018 birth)

An engagement or a wedding in the house of Windsor - could be either Eugenie, Harry or Gabriella

Also a possible death in the house of Windsor (I suspect the Queen or Prince Philip, though I hope not)

A pregnancy announcement for Princess Madeleine and Christopher.

A pregnancy announcement in the Luxembourg royal family.

A major scandal in one of the European monarchies - strongly suspect Prince Laurent of Belgium

Another pregnancy announcement in the Belgian/Austria este family

Some major news from the Greek royal family!! Maybe an engagement

More participation in royal life from the Japanese crown princess

Also a decline in the Japanese emperors health

I also believe there will be a divorce or separation in one of the royal families

carlota 01-14-2017 12:27 PM

a pregnancy announcement for guillaume and stephanie
a pregnancy announcement for CP and sofia
a pregnancy announcement for moulay rachid and lalla oum
a pregnancy announcement for leka and elia
inaki goes to prison, cristina manages to get away without prison time but retains residence in switzerland
a state visit from WA and maxima to another country (hopefully with royalty)
a state visit from felipe and letizia to another country (hopefully with royalty) - maybe a rescheduling of the visit to the UK planned last year?

marytessy 06-06-2017 07:57 PM

So far only guesses that have come true, a pregnancy announcement for Sofía and CP--I predict a girl.
Someone said a divorce, and unfortunately that came true for Tessy and Louis :(
It's June already so nearly half the year's over but here are my predictions/hopes:
Zara's baby is gone but I think/hope she can still conceive.. maybe late 2018 birth.
I hope for even more than I predict a child for Guillaume and Stephanie
Definitely predict another child or two (she's said she wants 4) for Madeleine and Chris
Hope for another from Will and Catherine! Although the age difference will be much greater than the one by g and c.

Hope for another from Will and Catherine! Although the age difference will be much greater than the one by g and c.

And this in fact happened!

And Prince Filip of Serbia went to the altar but not with Lucy Attwood.;)

New Year of 2018


Luxembourg- Royal watchers will continue to predict that a pregnancy announcement for the HGD couple is imminent.:cool:

Belgium-Interest in Philippe and Mathilde's two eldest children(Elisabeth and Gabriel) will intensify, particularly in Lisa. Continental tabloids will become more aggressive in their coverage, but Philippe and Mathilde will-wisely- continue to limit/monitor their pretty young daughter's exposure.

Denmark-Frederik and Mary as well as Joachim and Marie will step up their public appearances as Queen Margrethe withdraws to devote herself to managing the care of an increasingly frail Prince Henrik.

Britain-Engagement announcement for Princess Eugenie...ditto for Harry.

Monaco-No more children for Albert and Charlene. Another pregnancy for Pierre and Beatrice. Marriage and another pregnancy for Charlotte Casiraghi(not necessarily in that order! :lol:)

I totally agree with Moonmaiden! Additional predictions for any year (not just 2017 and 2018)

Spain: Domestic politics is a mess. The kids grow up to be both good looking and smart. The other royals (except F&L) keep a low profile.

Sweden: Kids keep popping out, at an average of one a year. Baby sashes and Nobel tiaras.

Norway: Ari Behn opens a strange art exhibition. Haakon has a great beard. Astrids aigrette is still the coolest thing around.

Imminent pregnancy announcement for the Luxes? It's been several long years that has been 'imminent'!

:previous: Indeed it has...but that hasn't stopped the predictions! For myself I have given up predicting, and can only hope from now on.:ermm:

Pranter 11-02-2017 01:23 PM

1. The Robert Jobson rumor was that it will happen when HM turns 95.

2. But as all the commentators/experts and former/present courtiers have said, it is never going to happen.

3. Even Robert Jobson has changed his mind (again), and he now says that it isn't likely to happen.

Not going to happen on a permanent basis, only if QMII is unable to do her duties, the same goes for King Harald of Norway.

That is my crystal ball....

Hello,
Bit of a wild one - terribly outrageous as well . If anything comes true on this one, I really need to start playing the lottery :)


UK
Complete upheaval of the royal family this year. Problem start early with the announcement of the split of Prince Harry and Meghan Merkel. Kate give birth to a little girl and then surprises everyone with a announcement at the end of the year with another. Leaving the tabloid to suggest that she wants to be on maternity leave for the rest of your thirties. Matters get worse when the surrogate mothers of all the Cambridge children sell their story to the newspapers and Netflix.
Prince William spends most of the year with the children after complaining that he is been overworked. Similar complaint from the Duchess of Cornwall who officially retires in July from public service. Prince Harry decides after the breakup that he will rather spend his time in Africa only returning to the UK for the rugby games. He appears with new wife, in tow for his grandfather's funeral. Gets the title of Earl of Windsor - will inherit Duke of York after Prince Andrew's death.


Prince Andrew invites a girlfriend spend Summer with the family. Princess Beatrice falls pregnant and decides to became a single mom. She starts taking on many of the charities that are left vacant by the retirement of Princess Alexander, the Duke of Kent and Prince Michael. Princess Eugenie gets married in November in the wedding of the season. Princess Beatrice shocked everyone as the unmarried, pregnant bridesmaid.
The Queen passes away silently in her sleep - before August. Canada, Australia and New Zealand all break away from the commonwealth before Charles coronation, which has to be postponed due to the death of Prince Philip in December. Charles spends most of first year of as monarchy redecorating Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
Edward and Sophie continue very much as usual - Sophie gets a few new hats and coats. Edward sits to his twenty year old wardrobe. No one really notices when they adopt two children from the local Surrey orphanage or when the attend the same sex marriage of Ivar Mountbatten.


As I said just a load of nonsense - don't like really mentioning the deaths of anyone - but if you of over 80 it is pretty much on the cards for all of us - unfortunately. Have a good year everyone.

Countessmeout 01-02-2018 02:47 AM

Especially considering there is no Prince Alexander :biggrin: The duke of kent is named Edward. Though Beatrice and Eugenie taking over patronages from him is the most plausible thing in your list :lol:

As for Megan Merkel....I have heard twitters rumors she is Angela Merkel's illegitamite daughter and the marriage is to cement brexit relations.
