Is there a day (like 1. April in other countries) in Spain, where you can fool everybody and is this day on the first of November?!
No kidding! I think this news caught about 99.9% of us by complete surprise! Mary and Frederik we could see coming, it was just a matter of when. But we didn't even know about Letizia! The name hadn't even crossed our lips until about yesterday evening!

Talk about keeping a good secret!

Two Crown Prince weddings in 2004, not to mention two future heirs being born next year!

Heir to Spanish throne to marry journalist

MADRID (AFP) - Prince Felipe, heir to the throne of Spain, will marry divorced Spanish television journalist Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano next summer, the palace announced.

The 35-year-old prince, son of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, will next Thursday go to the palace to officially request permission to marry the 31 year-old current affairs presenter of public television channel TVE.

"The marriage will take place at the start of summer 2004 at Almudena Cathedral in Madrid," an official communique announced a day before the queen's 65th birthday.

Ortiz, who also worked for the conservative newspaper ABC and the CNN plus television channel, had married one of her former teachers in 1999 but divorced a year later.

Since no church wedding was held at the time, the Roman Catholic Church was not expected to oppose her remarryin

She is certainly very beautiful. And while she's not noble, she is Spanish and that will make her adjustment to royal life a bit easier. Unlike Mary, she will not have to learn a new language or culture, and that is one less hill to climb!

And because this relationship was kept so secret and hush-hush for such a long time until now, Letizia has not been subjected to the level of scrutiny Mary was prior to her engagement announcement to Frederik. Probably less stressing in some ways but more pressure on the day of the official presentation.

I'm curious to know what she is like personality wise, and how she'll fit in into the women of the royal family, from the properness of Queen Sofia, to the formalness of Infanta Elena, to the casual, sportiness of Infanta Cristina.

As a Catholic I know that technically this is correct, but it violates the spirit of the law concerning divorce and remarriage in the Catholic Church.

I think she looks a little bit like Queen Rania.

She sure is a stunning beauty...but i thought that Felipe couldn't marry a non-royal? Well i guess that couldn't have been possible since the royal population of eligible royal women is very limited. These two will certainly make a very attractive couple :)
