After the British royals celebrated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding this weekend, Monaco’s royals welcomed a new member to the family. Pierre Casiraghi, Princess Caroline‘s son, and his wife Beatrice Borromeo welcomed a son on Monday, May 21, palace sources confirmed to People.

The baby boy is named Francesco Carlo Albert—perhaps as a tribute to Pierre’s uncle, reigning Prince Albert II—and is 10th in line for the throne, People adds. He marks the couple’s second child, following the his big brother Stefano, who was born in February 2017.

The late Grace Kelly is Francesco’s great-grandmother. The actress-turned-royal was married to Monaco’s Prince Rainier III, mother to Princess Caroline, and grandmother to Pierre Casiraghi, Francesco’s father.

Casiraghi, 30, and Borromeo, 32, tied the knot in 2015 with not one, but two ceremonies, People reports. They confirmed they were expecting their second child at the Bal de la Rose in March this year.

Monaco’s royal family just welcomed another baby last month, when Pierre’s brother Andrea Casiraghi and his wife Tatiana Santo Domingo had their third child. (Coincidentally, the baby was born just days before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge‘s third child, Prince Louis.)
