Re: Happy news from Luxembourg !!
I get the idea Guillaume and Stephanie are a couple that value traditions and as their baby will one day succeed Guillaume as Grand Duke or Grand Duchess i expect it will get a name from within the family. As Guillaume's grandfather and great-grandmother are the two most respected heads of state the country has ever had i expect this baby will be named for one of them. Were it to have younger siblings both Philippe and Alix would certainly be options if those names are not used as one of the other names of the little one on its way.
I think Philippe or Alix are also likely choices. And firstborn sons have always been given new names like Henri or Jean
That's great news!!
So happy for them. I had been hoping the glow seen on Stephanie had something to do with this kind of news but did not want to bring it up.
I think that Felix and Claire will have sighed with relief when they heard the news. Now Amelie can grow up without the cloud of potentially having to succeed her uncle one day hanging above her.
So in may we'll have a little Jean or Charlotte (I'm guessing no other names will do for a Luxembourg heir or heiress).
