Another royal baby is on the way. Monaco’s Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene have announced they are expecting their first child together – the third for Prince Albert.
Prince Albert II is Grace of Monaco and Rainier III’s son. He is already a father to Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, 22, and 10-year-old Alexandre Coste.
".S.H the Prince and the Princess of Monaco are delighted to announce the pregnancy of H.S.H. Princess Charlene. The birth is expected at the end of the year,” the royals said in a statement, Us Weekly reports.
Monaco’s prince and princess, 56 and 36 respectively, were married in July 2011 after meeting 11 years earlier.
Prince Albert II has been vocal about his displeasure over the film Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, which portrays his parents during the 1960s.
He and his siblings, Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie, said in a statement, “The royal family wishes to stress that this film in no way constitutes a biopic. It recounts one rewritten and needlessly glamorised page in the history of Monaco and its family with both major historical inaccuracies and a series of purely fictional scenes.”
