[denmark] mary’s girl child, hopefully

The Danish royal house has announced the Australian-raised princess is pregnant and due to give birth to her second child in early May, 2007. The new baby will be born at Copenhagen's Rigshospitalet (Copenhagen University Hospital) - the hospital in which Prince Christian was born on October 15th last year. Many in Denmark will be hoping the newborn is a girl, as the country is overdue for the birth of a princess, the last being Queen Margerethe's younger sister, Princess Benedikte in 1944.

Yes indeed - egg on face: Her Majesty The Queen of Greece (or The Queen of the Hellenes) (1964-1973) no less and she recently returned with her husband to Greece on a visit.
