OMG! You had a 4.79kg baby!? I thought mine at 4.09kg was big!

I had only c-sections with my kids. My first was an induction, but due to failure to progress (which I suspect was the case with HGD Stephanie), it became a c-section. My planned c-section was a lot better recovery.

But as many of us say - the birth, albeit natural or c-section, is the easy part!

Yep, my son was a big boy. He actually stayed big and grew to to 1.93m. He's 28 now, lift weights and rock climbs. My daughter is 30, 1.68m and very slim.

A very probable scenario is that Stephanie was laboring with the intention to give birth naturally and baby Charles had a non reassuring fetal heart rate (happens all the time!)so they decided to do an emergency C-section.
It's the only reason one would do a C-section on a pregnant woman of advanced maternal age, on a Sunday, and at 5'oclock in the morning.

That is the most likely scenario. It makes me admire her even more for facing the cameras with a radiant smile 3 days later. A long hard labour OR a Caesarean delivery alone would have been daunting. But the after affects of both, together, would be pretty painful and exhausting.

Glad she didn't try to opt for a home birth after all.

I hope she is getting a lot of rest, care and assistance with her beautiful baby son.

I expect all the extended family will have to visit baby on ZOOM.

Does Stephanie have sisters?


Also, if the baby had been a girl; would a brother take precedence from an older sister?

No, if Gui and Stephanie had had a daughter, she would have been the Heiress regardless of any male children that eventually followed.

I am sure that they are cherishing these first days and weeks of quiet to bond alone with their new son.

I can't wait for the baptism and this Christmas is going to be wonderfu! We are undoubtedly going to see photographs of the Guillaume, Stephanie and Charles surrounded by the festivities of Christmas! Such a beautiful little boy! Can't wait!

I'm so happy for the two! Prince Charles is the first of his generation to be called Prince of Luxembourg.

I think its time to change the name of the main thread and add "...and family".
