Bonnes nouvelles for royal watchers: There's a Luxembourg royal baby on the way!
The Grand Ducal household announced on Tuesday that Prince Félix and Princess Claire are expecting their first child in June, when the princess is due to give birth. The news comes just four months after their fairytale wedding. (Well, technically they had two -- a civil ceremony and a grand affair in the South of France, complete with a princess-worthy Elie Saab bridal gown.) The couple now runs Claire's family winery in Provence, where Félix studies oenology and Claire is earning her PhD in bioethics.
Even though 2014 has just begun, it's been quite a year for royal babies already. Both Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Zara Philips, Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter, are due any week now. Plus, Monaco's Charlotte Casiraghi gave birth to a baby boy just before the new year. And don't even get us started on the buzz Prince George started last summer for this year's royal buns in the oven.
We're sending our sincerest félicitations over to Félix and Claire -- let the royal maternity fashion begin!
Remember how beautiful their wedding was?
CORRECTION: This post previously stated that Princess Claire was the Grand Duchess. The Grand Duchess is in fact Maria Theresa of Luxembourg.
