A big mystery in the manga is Albert's heritage. It's too fishy that he looks identical to Alexia, the country's crown princess. Especially chapter 6 sheds some light on this: if twins are born from which one is a boy, it'll bring a catastrophe (and he'll be executed). But even before that, it is implied that princes are disposed of, since they are useless.
So it makes sense that he's in fact Alexia's brother, but how will that influence the story (if it is true)? The current queen, Laetitia, seems to be an ice queen, but her last words (kinda ..) hint that she's not like she'd like to be (seen as).
If he's really Alexia's brother: I thought she'd be too cold to care about her child, but perhaps she's just lamenting the fact that she couldn't save her son.
