There have been two royal pregnancies announced recently. Things seem to happen in threes so who shall the third one be? Hmmmm…
The Crown Princess Couple of Sweden
This couple is one of our favourites and we just love the sound of ‘Crown Princess Couple.’ Perhaps that should be the subject of another post. Anyhow, on August 17, 2011 the Swedish royal court announced that Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are expecting their first child. The baby is due to be born in March of 2012 and as the first born child of the heir apparent to the Swedish throne, the baby will be the future King or Queen. Congratulations to Victoria and Daniel!
Prince Joachim and Princess Marie of Denmark
On August 24, the Royal Palace of Denmark announced that Prince Joachim and Princess Marie are expecting their second child together. Their first child, Prince Henrik, was born in 2009. The baby is expected to be born in late January of 2012.
This will be Prince Joachim’s fourth child; he has two sons from his previous marriage to the former Princess Alexandra, now known as the Countess of Frederiksborg. Prince Nikolai is now eleven and Prince Felix is nine.
With three boys, could the fourth be a girl? Congratulations to Marie and Joachim.
So who wants to start guessing baby names?
