P.S. Princess Henriette of Bavaria, nee Gruse (wife of Prince Heinrich) should have given birth already.
 
Viola is the eldest of the 11 grandchildren of the late Prince Amedeo, Duke of Aosta, and his first wife Princess Claude of Orleans. The baby is the first great-grandchild in the family.

The baby's paternal grandfather will be Kristian Siem who is a very wealthy Norwegian business man in shipping (shareholder in Norwegian cruiseline and chairman of Subsea 7). Considering Charlie and all three of his sisters are involved in music, be neat to see down the line if the baby has musical talent (yes I am picturing an unborn baby's musical love already, laughing at myself).
