When the Princess, 36, gives birth at the end of this year, it will have many wondering: which baby will inherit the principality?

The couple first announced in May that they were expecting.

  • Princess Charlene, a former Olympic swimmer from South Africa, married the longtime bachelor in July 2011.


  • Prince Albert has two children - daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, born in 1992 to American Tamara Rotolo, and Alexandre Coste, born in 2003 to Togo native Nicole Coste.

  • While neither is in line to the throne, they are entitled to a portion of their father's fortune, which is worth an estimated $1billion.

  • According to the Constitution of the Principality, the first born baby is the closest in line to the throne, with priority given to males. What remains unclear is what will happen if the first born is a girl. The genders of the twins have not been revealed (and… unlikely to be, we are guessing).
