The Princess of Monaco is .....

@ Princely Palais Monaco

It's official.  Charlene is pregnant!    The Prince and Princess of Monaco are going to be parents!!!  Palace made the announcement earlier today.

"Le Prince Albert II et la Princesse Charlène de Monaco ont l’immense joie d’annoncer qu’Ils attendent un heureux événement.La naissance est prévue à la fin de l’année.

The princess is three months pregnant, and expected to give birth toward the end of the year!

Succession to the throne is male primogeniture (from the Sovereign Prince and siblings).  Thus, a son would be styled as Hereditary Prince and a daughter would be styled as Hereditary Princess.  A daughter would retain this title until the birth of a younger brother.  

Although second in line to the throne,  Caroline is not the Hereditary Princess. She is not the daughter of the present sovereign.
