Spanish royal birth opens constitutional debate

MADRID, Spain (Reuters) -- Spain's future queen, Princess Letizia, gave birth on Monday to her first child, a girl, lending urgency to a debate on changing the constitution to give women the same right as men to inherit the throne.

The baby, named Leonor, is second in line to the Spanish throne after her father, Crown Prince Felipe of Borbon.

She was born at 1:46 A.M. (0046 GMT) by Caesarean, doctors at Madrid's Ruber International clinic said. Although born three weeks early, the baby and her mother were said to be in good health.

"This is the nicest thing that can happen to anyone in life ... The princess and I are absolutely happy and radiant," Prince Felipe told a packed news conference at the hospital.

A crowd of photographers, television crews and well-wishers waited outside the clinic for hours under pouring rain after Letizia was admitted on Sunday evening.

The birth comes 17 months after the glittering wedding of Felipe, now 37, and Letizia, a glamorous former television news reader now aged 33. Leonor is the seventh grandchild of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.

Madrid, 31 oct (EFE) .-The Infanta Leonor, first-born of the Princes of Asturias was born today in Madrid in a childbirth with Caesarean, which there attended Don Felipe, who defined the moment as " the nicer thing that can to him happen in the life "
The small one weighed 3,540 kilograms and measured 47 centimeters. The princess of Asturias and her daughter are in " perfect condition ", made clear her gynaecologist, Luis Ignacio Recasens, in her appearance before the mass media about six o'clock in the morning.
Don Felipe added that he accompanied the Princess Letizia in the illumination and that this one remained conscious at all time and received hisexplanations of what was happening.
" We are happy and radiant, the moment to see to be born to your son is slightly exceptional " Don Felipe said, though he admitted that since he was so dependent on the condition of the Princess, initially it was not fixed in the sex of the baby.
The first-born one of the Princes of Asturias will occupy the second place in the line of succession of the Wreath of Spain, behind his father, Don Philip who said that the birth of the Infanta Leonor " materializes in an evident way the succession " of the parliamentary Monarchy and " it is a very significant fact from the political and constitutional point of view " The advertisement of the birth was communicated by Zarzuela spent the 02.30 by means of a telephonic message that distributed the journalists credited before the House of the King with a text who was saying: " The Princess of Asturias has just given birth a girl ".
Leonor is the first Infanta who is born in Spain with a reigning monarchy from 1914, year in which there came to the world don Gonzalo, small son of Alfonso XIII.
Nothing any more the news to be known, the prime minister, Jose Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, who was informed by the Prince Felipe, called personally the King " to express his more intimate congratulation to him " for the birth of the daughter of the Princes of Asturias.
Also he congratulated the Kings and the Princes the president of the PP, Mariano Rajoy, who transmitted in his name and in that of his party " respectful and sincere " letter of congratulation for the new Infanta, who supposes " a motive of happiness for all the Spanish ".
The PSOE moved also " his more sincere letter of congratulation to His Royal Highnesses the Princes of Asturias " for being " today it is a day of happiness for all the democrats ".
(...)
The new Infanta will have prevalencia on any future brother only if there is carried out the reform of the article 57 of the Constitution, raised by the Government to guarantee the equality of sexes.
The first-born daughter of the Princes of Asturias and the seventh granddaughter of the Kings, who will be registered in the next hours in the Civil Record of the Royal Family, will be the Princess XXXVI of Asturias and the sixth woman heiress of the Spanish Monarchy, when his father is proclaimed A King.
Till then it will show the Infanta's title with treatment of Royal Highness, as the rest of brothers or sisters that she could have.
This new member of the Spanish Royal Family displeases in the line of succession her aunts and cousins, the infantas Elenas, and her children, Felipe Juan Froilán and Victoria Federica, and Cristina and theirs, Juan Valentín, Pablo Nicolás, Miguel and Irene.

The new Infanta of Spain and Royal Highness will be baptized, since he it was his father, with water of the river Jordan and in the historical battery of Guzmán's Santo Domingo, possibly after Christmas.
When the born Infanta today turns into the Princess XXXVI of Asturias, the day in that her father accedes to the Throne, she will receive also the titles Princess's of Viana and Gerona, Duchess of Mont Blanc, Countess of Cervera and Lady of Balaguer, linked to her heiress's condition of the Wreath.

Congratulations, Spain and Casa Réal!!!

I woke up this morning (just like with the news from Denmark) and opened the tv and the first thing to be on the news at that moment was the new princess!! I just happened to open the tv at a moment when they had already told the news and all I heard was a bit about when they were married. So, I had to wait until the next news to find out which one it was...

Leonor, it is different and I like the fact that it is not a very usual name and still it is historical. It's pretty, although I must admit I was hoping for an Isabella or Catarina...

I kind of guessed that the baby would be born today, probably because so many on these forums suggested that the birth might induced on the 31st. I guess it wasn't but still, ppl were right!!:)

Congratulations to the happy parents and welcome little Leonor!

:) :) I'm so happy for Felipe & Letizia, good to hear that everything went well and the baby is healthy. And I love the name, really nice.
Can hardly wait to see the pictures of her with her parents

I knew it will happen this night. Before I went to bed I thought on Letizia and this morning at breakfest I heard the news in TV.
