Confirmed: Princess Charlene is Expecting Twins; Who Will Succeed to the Throne?

In case you haven't heard, it's been officially announced Their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco are expecting twins.

There's been rumours regarding this for months but the Palace took to social media to confirm the wonderful news.

Charlene appears to be sailing through her pregnancy and spoke exclusively to Hello! last week. "I feel absolutely great," she told the magazine in the US where the couple have been attending a string of high-profile charity events including the 2014 Princess Grace Awards Gala in Los Angeles.

Charlene looked lovely in a bespoke Dior gown. The flowing garment worked very well for the soon-to-be mum and she pulled it off with aplomb thanks to her statuesque frame. It's a nice departure from her usual choice of Akris pieces; as much as she loves the brand it's great to see her in a brand like Dior, who sponsored the event.

For those wondering about succession (there's been quite a few misleading articles following the announcement Charlene is expecting twins) it's really very simple - if both babies are boys the first one to arrive will be the heir, if it's a boy and a girl, the boy will become heir, and if it's two girls, again the first one to arrive will succeed to the throne.


It must be a very exciting time in Monaco with preparations underway for the royal arrivals!

  1. If it's two girls the first one will be the heir but if Charlene has more children a boy would still pass her older sister.

    Charlene looks wonderful but I do wish she would smile more. She has hinted apparently in that last interview that there were difficulties in adjustment. But she works very hard and hope her babies are born safely and bring her great contentment.

  5. Charlene is such an enigma to me, I can never get a read on her. Is she sad, happy, warm, icey, never can tell. Anyhow, I think this dress looks gorgeous on her, very heavenly looking. For some time she barely looked pregnant and now, wow, her little bump sure has blossomed. How exciting to be expecting twins, double the joy!! Best wishes to the happy couple!
