No one knows the baby's gender yet, except the Royal Family I suppose. There were rumours about twins, but they were quashed.

I also think it's a boy! (but I thought Mathilde of Belgium would have a girl, so...:o )

Prince, father and godfather

MARIÁNGEL ALCÁZAR - 09/10/2005

He is not the first future father to whom anybody does not even case. During the months of the pregnancy the one that matters is the mother and more that we are occupied, in this case, by the princess Letizia, whose husband, the prince of Asturias, leads weeks withdrawn to a discreet background with this own generosity of the inexperienced parents. Since the whole world goes to the princess to know how she is and such what goes the thing, don Felipe can allow live through the nearby arrival of his first son with a great emotion and, especially, without having to give explanations he brings over of his state of mind, at least out of the familiar area. Only a few days ago, in Madrid, the future mother was reporting the last details of a pregnancy of which the women qualify of weighed by the situation of morning discomfort that they generate. The gestation, as also the princess explained, it has been OK, that, ultimately, it is what matters. As every woman who faces her first childbirth, dona Letizia is consulting her friends who already have passed the situation. She does not seem to be scared, but rather puzzled and already impatient to live through the moment. Dona Letizia soprende every day for the volume of her belly, which, apparently, makes think that the pregnancy is more advanced. Though, just now, in the environment of the princes of Asturias it is avoided to make concrete the moment and the place of the childbirth to prevent that they start planting shops of campaign on the surroundings of the medical center, there is foreseen that dona Letizia gives birth between 5 and on November 12 in the clinical Ruber Internacional of Madrid, the same one in the two children of the infanta Elena were born. The princess Letizia will be represented by a medical equipment to whose front there will be the doctor Recasens, as gynaecologist, and the doctor Avelino Barros, as chief of the medical services of the House of the King. The clinic Ruber, a private center, Gregorio Marañón has gained the item as place of birth of a future king of Spain to O'Donnell's Maternity, a unit of neonatalogy dependent on the public hospital, belonging to the National Health Service, the first option of the Princes even before dona Letizia was remaining a pregnant woman. This choice, with which that the Royal Household was trying to emphasize the good level of the public health, she had to be rejected for several reasons. The first one, to prevent from speaking of the influence of Paloma Rocasolano, mother of the princess, nurse and there activates militant of the union of the public health, and the second one, for parties pressures of the sector of the private medicine. Since in other occasions, don Felipe, in his attempt of protecting the Princess from all those they attribute to her the capture of decisions of the couple, he chose not to innovate as for royal childbirths, in spite of the fact that to today the Ruber it does not possess unit of intensive care for newborn children. Dona Letizia will leave her official activities after Prince of Asturias being present at the acts that will take place in Oviedo, between on October 20 and 22, on the occasion of the delivery of the prizes. This week her activity will be intense: together with the Prince and the rest of the royal family, dona Letizia will be present on Wednesday, the 12th of October, in the acts of the day of the national Day and the weekend she will travel to Salamanca, where, with don Felipe, they will attend someone of the acts that will take place on the occasion of the Latin-American Summit. Yesterday, don Felipe and dona Letizia represented in house of the infanta Pilar, in Madrid, to the baptism of Luis, the first son of Beltrán Gómez Acebo and Laura Ponte. The prince of Asturias was the godfather of the child and had him in arms. In one month he will support his own son, who beside turning him into father will allow him to expire with his obligation to give continuity to the Wreath.

Don Felipe wants to be present at the birth of his first-born one

The Prince of Asturias wants to be present in the birth of his first son, foreseen for November, as he commented today in the course of the receipt offered by the Royal Family in the Palace of East on the occasion of the celebration of the National Holiday.
Dona Letizia did not accompany her husband on the receipt, though yes she was in the military parade that passed in the morning for the walk of Madrid of the Castilian one.
Don Philip, in conversation distended with journalists, commented that dona Letizia is well but that, for his suggestion,she had not been present at the receipt, on having passed of foot and given the long duration, more than two hours.
Also the Queen spoke about the pregnancy of her daughter-in-law, and said that she is marvellously.
The Prince did not elude the conversation on his close paternity, which lives coolly and illusion, and made clear that dona Letizia will be present next week in Oviedo at the delivery of the Prizes that take his name and that this year celebrate the twenty-five anniversary.
He said also that the childbirth, which predictably will take place in the clinical Rúber Internacional of Madrid, the same one in the one that had her two children the Infanta Elena, is waited by the middle of November.
Don Felip joked with the journalists on such an awaited and unknown date, and said that it might be the first week of November, or the second one, probably the third one and why not the fourth one.
The future father insisted that they do not know the sex of the baby, and that he and the Princess of Asturias shuffle a ready long billiard cue of names of child and of girl without, at the moment, they have been decided by none.
The Prince knew that the journalists who cover habitually the information of the Royal Family have done a "bet" that for the most part he bets for a male who will be born in the middle of November and whom Juan Carlos will call himself, as the paternal grandfather.
Don Felipe continued the joke and asked if he could take part also in the "bet", but he admitted that he was playing with advantage and desisted from doing it.

The maternal license of a Princess: does there last the same that of an Infanta?

Infanta Cristina finishes of joining to his work in The Caixa after the birth of his daughter Irene. Now the question arises: will it have Mrs Letizia 16 weeks?

12 of October, 2005. Two years are fulfilled today from the "stampede" of Prince Felipe in the Parade of the Armed forces of 2003, which from some sectors assumes to a " secret meeting " with his lover of that time, today it handcuffs, Letizia Ortiz.

Today it will be in the tribune of the Walk of the Castilian one of Madrid, along with Mrs Letizia, since it could not be less, and probably the visage of Don Felipe, always calm, will radiate happiness for the next thing of one of the most important events of his life: the birth of his first son.

Information, the joust

For so great event, the Real House has already affirmed that it will facilitate to the journalists all the information that they need during this day. What they will not be able to avoid it will be the waiting on the verge of the Clinic Ruber Internacional of Madrid, where in the room number 10, the witness will transfer the inexperienced mother, after his sister-in-law, Infanta Elena, was giving there birth to his two sons: Froilán and Victoria Federica.

There has been little information with regard to the "real" pregnancy, but yes it has been known, ABC was publishing it last week, which in the above mentioned hospital has already reserved three rooms and which Mrs Letizia would be following the courses of preparation to the childbearing with all normality.

Maternal license

What at the moment is not known, is all the time there will be the Princess of Asturias of " maternal license". The logic makes to think that both the mother and the "creature", taking the word with the one that referred to the future baby the Pope Benedicto XVI, need approximately 16 weeks to recover of the childbearing and to adapt themselves to the new situation.

Perhaps, if Mrs Letizia is well before this time, it might accompany Don Felipe, since it does it now, to some of his official acts. Or perhaps, it might do as Infanta Cristina, in addition to Infanta director of the Social Area of Fundació La Caixa, who has joined to his position last October 5 after his maternal fall for the birth of his fourth daughter, Irene.

The date has coincided, also, with the reinicio of his official activities as we could see last week in Barcelona in the acts of the day of the Police and the opening of Sonimag.

The great-grandfather of her gynaecologist attended Victoria Eugenia

Almost hundred years have passed between the last childbirth of the Queen Victoria Eugenia, who was an October 24, 1914, and the Dona Letizia's first one, which will take place next weeks.
Nevertheless, the destiny has done that is the same familiar saga the one that attends both mothers in their illuminations. And it is that the Queen Victoria Eugenia there attended the doctor Sebastián Recasens and he will be the great-grandson of this one eminently gynaecologist, the doctor Luis Ignacio Recasens, who brings to the world the first-born one of the Princes of Asturias. Whereas Victoria Eugenia gave to light always in Palace, already out the Royal one of Madrid or that of The Farm, Dona Letizia will do it in the clinical Ruber Internacional.

During the reception that was offered on the National Day, Don Felipe confessed to the journalists that he doesn’t know the sex of his baby and that he and his wife have made two lists, in order to choose the name of the baby, who will be born in the second week of November.

In an informal conversation during the traditional reception in the RoyalPalace, the Prince commented to the journalists that he wishes to be present in the birth of his first-born, because he doesn’t want to lose a little while of such important moment. Don Felipe spoke of the emotion of being a father and thus giving continuity to the dynastic line. In spite of his feelings, not a word was said about the sex of the baby, as he answered that he doesn’t have any "privileged information" on that matter.

The journalists invited then Don Felipe to add himself to the guessing club, betting for 3 euros the date of birth, the sex and the name of the baby. The Prince declined the invitation and added that he and his wife have made two lists, which they’re still turning over and over in their minds.

They don't know the sex of the baby? I think that's nice. Everyone always wants to be prepared these days and there is no surprise anymore. :)

It seems almost like a "tradition" in the SRF. Infanta Cristina also didn't want to know the sex of her babies and she was pretty moved, when she finally recieved in her arms a little girl. :)

More than a year ago, long time before the pregnancy of Doña Letizia was announced, the Princes of Asturias have been presented with baby booties, pyjamas, t-shirts, aprons, trousers, etc... On Thursday, Don Felipe received a complete equipment of the Sporting de Gijón, but what nobody was expecting was that HRH requested "something" for his baby. It happened on Thursday night, at the Auditorium Prince Felipe, after the closing concert of the XIV Week of Music, performed by the Symphonic Orchestra of the Principality of Asturias, the Choir of the Prince of Asturias Foundation and the Donostiarra Orfeon, under the direction of Jesus Lopez Cobos. Don Felipe approached the musicians, as he always does, to greet the interpreters and, when narrowing the hand of Lopez Cobos, the Prince made a suggestion: "Jesus, the next thing that you must do is a cradle-song". The composer and director took note of the royal order: a cradle song for the royal baby will be his next work.

La Zarzuela has prepared a plan safety in the Ruber for the birth of the infante who includes the use of helicopters

The safety services of La Zarzuela have the safety plan already designed around the Clinic Ruber, which includes the participation of helicopters of the Police. The plan this one already ready for when there takes place the birth of the baby of the princes of Asturias, with direct protagonism of the safety services of the House of the King, but also with implication of the Police National Body. These preparations already were applied, partly, during the night of last Monday, when Letizia Ortiz came to the hospital to start suffering contractions.
According to information gathered by The Confidential Digital one, La Zarzuela has requested the presence the persons in charge of the police of effective of reinforcement about the Ruber, including the alertness from the air by means of the mobilization of the helicopters of the CNP.
Though the initial forecasts on date of illumination were centring in middle of November, impressions gathered by ECD in the mentioned environment aim now at the possibility that one could produce an advance of the childbirth, between other things because the calculations in these cases are never mathematical.
For logical prudence before this possibility, finally the princess has not travelled to Oviedo to be present at the delivery of the Prizes Prince of Asturias, as it went forward in the pages of The Confidential Digital one.

Politicians, businessmen and journalists think that the first born of the Princes of Asturias shall be a male, who must receive an education similar to the one Don Felipe had


Journalists, politicians and businessmen believe that the heir of the Princes of Asturias will be a male, although nobody puts its hand on the fire for it. On what they do not have doubts is that the education of the heir must be similar to the one that Don Felipe had received, although there’s no unanimity on this point of the discussion. Of course all the personalities La Nueva España spoke with showed their joy by the presumable quick arrival of the stork, be it a boy or a girl.

Sabino Fernandez Campo, the count of Latores, was one of those who bet for a boy, although he confesses: "I have no idea". For the ex-spokesman of the House of the King, if the first-born of the Princes of Asturias was a man "it would make the reform of the Constitution not so urgent and it would be better for the reform, if it hadn’t to be made quickly". Sabino Fernandez Campo considers that the education of the infante (or infanta) "would have to be similar to the one that his/her father received. The military schools are not a bad option, to inculcate values, and later a more complete formation, because the power that the child will have is one that requires knowledge and personal authority".

Also the former president of the newspaper "La razon", Luis Maria Anson considers that the child "must be educated as its father: at the military schools, University and other courses made abroad, so that he may have the maximum contact with the Spanish and the International reality". Luis Maria Anson expressed a conviction: "Doña Letizia will bring the child immediately to Oviedo, because she is very in love with this land".

Besides, also the ex- minister of Culture, Carmen Alborch, believes that "the Prince has received a very complete education, as much in Spain as abroad".
