Princess Christina denies pregnancy rumors
DPLDwnK.png?1Earlier this week, Her Highness, Princess Christina, the Duchess of Brisa, appeared live on Eu24 to discuss her new life among the royal family. After marrying last July His Royal Highness, the Duke of Brisa, Charles, the heir apparent to the throne, she has been "enjoying life quite splendidly." The newly-weds spent their nearly month-long honeymoon in the Tapeltans at an undisclosed skiing lodge that belonged to the bride's family, House Bosonona. "Charles and I are both very athletic," Her Highness commented. "We made great sport of racing each other down the mountain on our skis." But for all their athleticism, and all that time spent in serene seclusion, no pregnancy ever came. Neither Her Highness nor her husband made any comment, after returning from their honeymoon, on the lack of a child. But anonymous sources intimate to the royal family make note that rumors began to fly around this time last year that the couple was having difficulty conceiving.

A historical expert on the royal family, Dr. Augustin Beusas, weighed in. "It's no surprise to me," he said, confirming the information provided by our sources. "The Sybinan family has always demonstrated fertility issues. After all, was it not Queen Rose [1811-1876] who did not have her only son, Charles I, until she was thirty-one? And she, herself, was King Michael's only surviving child? And equally so with the Sybinans today: His Majesty and Her Majesty after thirty-seven years of marriage still only have two children."

Earlier last month, however, the rumors took an entirely different flavor. Her Highness, Princess Christina, cancelled a gala she was hosting on the 5th, and then a press event on the 7th, due to "unforeseen illness," in the words of the Public Office. It was not described as serious illness, and neither was she admitted to a hospital. Our sources tell us that speculation abounded about it being morning sickness, the first signs of her first child with her husband Charles. Apparently, such rumors became so widespread that she had been approached with many congratulations, gifts, flowers, and letters from well-wishers over the past few weeks, as Her Highness confessed to the hosts of Eu24.

"I am afraid I must settle the gossip and explain there is no pregnancy yet," Her Highness said politely, with only a hint of sadness in her voice. "Charles and I have been trying for a baby, yes, but nothing has come of it yet," she reiterated.

"Have you considered fertility treatments?" one host asked. Her Highness confirmed that they were.

"
It's the first time the royal family has ever considered such treatment in public," Dr. Beusas noted.

We here at The Reporter will be wishing her and Charles, nonetheless, the best of luck.


There's a new kid on campus: HRH Princess Lily Adrienne
If you study at the University of Brisa, there's a chance you might be rubbing shoulders with royalty. Her Royal Highness, the Princess Lily Adrienne, daughter of Charles IV and younger sister to the Duke of Brisa, is finally taking up studies in the university's international affairs program.

zquAMzb.png?1Initially, it was unclear what the young Princess, still only eighteen, would be doing after graduating St. Mary's Academy for Girls in Montelupo, her private secondary school of just two years. The Princess, who had been previously tutored her whole life in relative seclusion, remained an enigma then. Some expected that she would be engaged after marriage, with such wild theories as a wedding to the widowed Duke of Usco, though he is nearly fifty years her senior, but no ridiculous thing as that ever came. Instead, the Princess appeared to be taking time off for personal study (though she continued to compete publicly in dressage events).

Yesterday, the Public Office, in cooperation with the University of Brisa, announced Her Royal Highness would begin attending the institution's international affairs program. The reasons for her delay before entering school were ascribed to security concerns. We spoke with one anonymous student, who showed us they had been removed from a course unexpectedly due to such security concerns—a class, evidently, that the Princess is taking. Indeed, students and faculty have both noticed the intensified presence of suited guards around campus.

Though no trouble ever came to the Duke of Brisa when he attended the university in 2005 and 2006, it appears that Good King Charles is taking no chances with his precious daughter.
