By their dating scan (usually 10-14 weeks) a doctor would have been able to tell.

They have been quite consistent on the baby not babies statements.

Of course they know, but they said some will be a surprise, so there is still hope

I am almost 100% certain that they know the sex of their unborn child. The name is what they are still deciding upon.

Yes, you are correct. The Hereditary Grand Duchess remarked in the Point de Vue interview referenced earlier in the thread that there was no "obvious" choice for the name (apparently, no matter how traditional they might be, they haven't deemed Jean or Charlotte to be mandatory ).

Celebrations are just a very small part of the joy of having a baby !It's not important.

Celebrations can take place in another way. But joy of the birth of a baby is the most important. I hope that Guillaume and Stephanie are safe at this point and that the baby is born healthy, that's the most important thing.

I doubt very much that we will see the smiling HGD couple giving a brief interview as they bring their newborn home from the hospital unfortunately.

More likely that the Court will simply release photos from the hospital or even from Fischbach after the official announcement.

It's about 6-8 weeks to go, I think!

She is due at the end of May.
When Princess Juliana of the Netherlands had her third daughter in January 1943 in the mids of the war, they apparently delayed the announcement of the birth, because they feared that there would be a large crowd of people wanting to celebrate the birth.
Could it be that the announcement of the birth would be delayed to avoid crowds of people to celebrate the birth?

Am I missing something? Stephanie is not due until May. And even if she wasn't, why would the HGD of Luxembourg give birth in Canada?

Perhaps we will get a video, introducing the baby, since they cant to a hospital leave type thing.

But I will settle for photos.

Hoping its closer to the start of May. I am anxious to see this little bundle.

not 100% sure, but i don't think it was so much that the birth was announced later, but that apart from some pictures all the usual public announcements when a baby was born were kept very sober. Reason being that the Netherlands were involved in the 2nd world war and occupied by the Germans Nazi regime, and Q.Wilhelmina considerdd too much celebration improper in the situation.
-----
I don't know if huge crowds are expected in Luxemburg when the birth is announced? Should they for instance announce it with several nice pictures so people get a glimpse of the child that way, I think it could be a nice highlight for everyone who is social distancing...besides, like you say, the baby isn't due to end of May, so who knows the Corona measures have been lifted to some extend by then in Luxemburg

Today huge crowds are already 10 people.

I can remember that Princess Juliana once said she was worried about the safety of people going on the streets to celebrate the birth ( a rehearsel of the birthday celebration of Prince Bernhard, when people came out on the streets to demonstrate against the occupation)

Yes obviously. THe Dutch would want to celebrate but it would be dangerous for them to do so, as it would be in essence a protest against he Nazi occupation and might result in a backlash by the Germans.
