Prince Guillaume and Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg have just become parents to a baby boy!

According to People, Charles Jean Philippe Joseph Marie Guillaume or simply, Prince Charles (that sounds familiar!) was born on 10 May.

With his dad being the heir apparent, he officially becomes second in line to the Luxembourg throne.

"A birth is a message of hope. It's a blessing," Prince Guillaume told the press moments after his baby boy was born. "I think this is what we're so happy to be able to share with Luxembourg but also over the borders with all the different countries."


With coronavirus restrictions, the couple, who first announced they were expecting in December, was unable to formally celebrated with the Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa. But their little one did get to meet his grandparents over video chat.
