Some news on babies making their debut in 2014 in the world of royalty:
On 17 January 2014, Zara Phillips (daughter of Princess Anne; granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II) gave birth to a girl, whom I shall temporarily call Baby Tindall until the name has been announced. I was a bit overwhelmed when I heard the news as I seem to still have my ‘royal baby gender predicting’ gift. It’s actually a bit scary…
I’ve been having a ‘gut feeling’ that Zara Phillips will have a daughter.

I had felt that Zara would have a daughter for since last autumn.
Update: The baby is named Mia Grace and you can see her first photo on Hello!
Sometime towards the end of February 2014, Princess Madeleine of Sweden will give birth to her daughter in New York. It’s unfortunate that the baby’s gender was revealed so early to the public, much to the O’Neills’ dismay.
Update (26 Feb 2014): HRH Princess Leonore Lillian Maria, Duchess of Gotland, was born on 20 February in New York.

This June, Prince Felix and Princess Claire of Luxembourg will also be expecting their first child. I am guessing the child will be a boy.
Update: This was the first time I have incorrectly guessed the gender of a royal baby. Princess Claire gave birth to Princess Amalia Gabriela Maria Teresa on 15 June in Luxembourg City.

Update (30 May 2014): Wonderful news! TSH Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco will be expecting their first child who will be born at the end of this year! I’m currently guessing the child will be a girl.

Update: A girl, Gabriella, (eldest) and boy, Jacques, (heir) were born to Charlene and Albert on 10 December 2014!
We conclude the 2014 year knowing that there will be at least two royal babies in 2015: a second baby for Will & Kate (methinks it will be a girl) and a second baby for Madeleine & Chris (I have no gut feeling on this one but I’m guessing another girl)! Perhaps 2015 will also bring forth a firstborn for Guillaume & Stephanie? 😉
Royal Babies of 2015
- 2 May 2015 – Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana (Prince William and Catherine)
- 15 June 2015 – Prince (Name) (Princess Madeleine and Chris) *This was the second time I incorrectly guessed the royal baby’s gender.
