I have been slacking. I tried to do my best to showcase other nations’ royal births other than Duchess Kate and Prince William of Great Britain. I managed to cover most of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden‘s first pregnancy and a bit of her baby sister Princess Madeleine’s first pregnancy, but then I slacked off big time!
Now, look! There’s a double bumpwatch going on among the Swedish royals.
Victoria is pregnant with her second child right alongside her sister-in-law Princess Sofia, who is married to Victoria’s younger brother Prince Carl Philip. Carl and Sofia married last June and didn’t waste much time to usher in another heir to the throne.
Baby sister Princess Madeleine and her husband New York businessman Christopher O’Neill have an almost 2-year old daughter Princess Leonora, born in February 2014, and a 7-month old son Prince Nicolas, born last June 2015.
Victoria is mom to 3-year old Princess Estelle, also born in February, in 2013.
Sofia is now 6 months along and Victoria also expects her baby to be delivered in March. Victoria’s children will inherit the throne first because she is heir apparent, and one of only 4 female heir apparent in monarchs world wide.
King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will be delighted at all the new grands coming this Spring.
