Great thread!

I expect pregnancies from Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie of Luxembourg and Princess Amedeo of Belgium.

I read that some people think that King Harald V of Norway will abdicate in 2015: don't think so, he has stated in the past that abdication' is not the tradition in Norway'. I guess that's his way of saying that he'll never abdicate.

What will happen to the royals in 2015?
 
I guess that:

-The Duchess of Cambridge will have a daughter

- Princess Beatrice will announce her engagement.

-Autumn Phillips will be pregnant with a third girl.

-Princess Tessy of Luxembourg will have a third boy

I would love to see another pregnancy for Marie and Joachim but I suspect they are done.

I just hope if there is an unplanned pregnancy for any of these families it's a shocking but ultimately joyful thing like Marys.

You are right. King Harald V will never abdicate.

2015 for the Royal Family will be a big year - new baby and a milestone birthday for the Queen | Western Daily Press
Quote:

For the Royal Family, 2015 means a new addition to the Cambridge household and a major milestone for the Queen.

Baby fever will begin again as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge prepare for the birth of Prince George’s sibling in April, in the run-up to May’s general election.

Other significant royal events include William’s high-profile trip to China, while the Queen is set to become Britain’s longest-serving monarch in September.

A sibling for Princess Estelle would be lovely.
I would expect HGD of Luxembourg will announce a pregnancy this year. I believe they wanted to wait 3 years.


Weddings/Engagements-Perhaps Maria-Laura and Beatrice?
I always hate to speculate on the health of the older members of the families, but there are a number getting up there in age from all of the royal families.

Lee-Z 01-03-2015 06:15 AM

My 2 cts:

Sweden
-apart from the obvious (wedding C-P/Sofia, on international internet forums more rumours about Sofia, child for P.Madeleine/Chris, in the swedish media more rumours about Madeleine) nothing special (but that'll be enough to fill the hear ;) )

UK
- engagement for one of the York-girls
- more dating rumours for P.Harry, but nothing official
- Zara Philips continues to ride well and becomes a sure thing for the olympics in 2016
- obviously new Cambridge baby

Netherlands
- more discussion about the financial choices of the king
- end of the year pregnancy-announcements for P.Maria-Carolina and P.Jaime

Belgium
- K.Philip and his siblings quietly continuing their work, but mood being disrupted still when various rumours concerning K.Albert continue to appear in the media

Monaco
- loads of focus on the new babies, and with that start of a slow shift of tasks within the Monaco family, P.Stephanie and her kids also taking on more ofgicial duties then before

Norway
- continuation of 2014, no big headlines

Spain
- with the NOOS trial occupying the media the rest of the RF does their best to avoid making headlines

Denmark
QMII--shall I say a member of the BRF attend as well, to start to correct such snubs after the funeral fiasco in Belgium.

Netherlands
Queen Maxima and QEII--that's a given! They both love their colors. Love it.

Sweden
Princess Estelle--I'd go flower girl over bridesmaid.

hernameispekka 01-04-2015 09:37 AM

I have very thin knowledge about some of the monarchies so will just write about the ones I know a bit about. And I know the year has already begun, but meh... just barely.

Sweden
-Crown Princess Victoria announces pregnancy late in the year
-Princess Madeleine gives birth to boy 2 weeks after C-P wedding, was able to be at the wedding. Birth in Sweden
-Madeleine and Chris moves to London
-Carl-Philip and Sophia marries, announces pregnancy fast
-Christening of Madeleines baby in September, Carl-Philip is named godfather

UK
-Catherine gives birth to a girl (Charlotte Elizabeth Frances) on 21st of april
-By summer it comes out that Harry has a girlfrieds since the beginning of the year (military, volouteer or something similar) and surprises people by being engaged by the end of 2015
-Euginie gets engaged
-Autumn and Peter announces pregnancy early in the year, gives birth to a boy
-Zara will not be pregnant because of Olympics 2016
-Surprisingly large celebrations of Charles and Camillas 10th wedding anniversiry
-Queen Elizabeth II becomes the longest serving monarch in Great Britain
-Andrew decreases his duties because of the scandals
-Catherine is present at a white tie engagement showing that she has been rewarded the RFO
-Prince George will be present at the balcony on trooping of the colours
-Health problems for Philip
-The Queen will surprise by going to the Commonwealth meeting in Malta. Philips health will be okay and they stay a week or so longer in Malta to relive memories. When they come home Philip has a health scare.

Denmark
-Joachim and Marie announces third pregnancy
-Mary takes up a controversial cause that stirs the pot a bit

Others
-Christening of the Twins in February in Monaco
-Stephanie of Luxembourg will NOT announce pregnancy, rumours about fertility problems continue
-Queen Maxima announces pregnancy
-1st pregnancy for King & Queen of Bhutan
-No abdications
-Mette-Marit continues to be absent alot, promting speculations of all sorts

An Ard Ri 01-04-2015 10:49 AM

2015 will be another very difficult year for the Spanish Royal Family with the ongoing Inaki/Cristina investigation which will sadly over shadow everything else.

Highly unlikely, but I do predict pregnancies in the Dutch Royal Family:

- a third pregancy for Princess Annemarie de Bourbon Parme
- a second pregnancy for Princess Viktoria de Bourbon Parme
- a second pregnancy for Princess Maria Carolina de Bourbon Parme

Moonmaiden23 01-04-2015 01:31 PM

I agree. I am almost certain Maxima is done with childbearing.

i think so too. in fact, i think her and all her counterparts of same age are whether queens already (mathilde, letizia) or to come (mary, mette marit). not the case for stephanie, obviously, but i think it will be a while until we get an announcement for charlene (i'd say at least 2 years).

i predict:

an announcement of marriage for princess beatrice
an announcement of marriage in the japanese royal house
another pregnancy announcement for victoria, and a baby for sofia announced late 2015
a girl for william and catherine
a boy for andrea and tatiana
a girl for madeleine and chris
a second pregnancy announcement for felix and claire
a pregnancy announcement in the habsbourg household
a pregnancy announcement for nikolaos and tatiana
iñaki is sentenced to enter prison. cristina manages to avoid prison and pays a bail.

Moonmaiden23 01-04-2015 03:43 PM

I would be surprised if there are any more "announcements" from Albert and Charlene. I have the feeling that it was not a simple thing for her to become pregnant in the first place. Now that she has a perfect matched pair she probably wishes to concentrate on being the best, most committed mother she can be to her twins.

royalistbert 01-04-2015 04:05 PM

To be a fly on the wall for the meeting between The Queen and Andrew. :whistling:

Haha, I kind of agree but I threw it in as a wild card :P

I agree, yet I'm secretly still hoping for an extra "el" in Belgium ;)
Then again, I think Charlene and Albert are done having children. They have the perfect number and "one of each" :smile:

DukeJonathan81 01-04-2015 07:22 PM
