The president of the Spanish Government, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, considered positive for the foundations of the SpanishState the existence of “an inheriting horizon”, and reiterated his wish of guarantying the equality between sexes, in the access to the Throne.

Rodriguez Zapatero made these considerations today in Moscow, about the announcement made by the House of the King. The head of the Spanish Executive expressed his congratulations to the Royal Family and specially to the Princes of Asturias, and said that this announcement is “very good news, which is going to gather much satisfaction among the Royal Family and which evidently has, in addition, institutional consequences”.

Besides, he expressed his conviction that the great majority of the Spanish society is happy today, because this news is “pleasant, positive and good for the future”. Zapatero said that Prince Felipe called him today, to inform him about the pregnancy of Doña Letizia, so he could speak to him when arriving at the concentration camp of Mauthausen, in Austria, to attend the 60th commemorations of its the liberation. Zapatero added that he was not able to speak with the King, but assured that he will do that “as soon as I can”.

Regarding the rights of succession based on sex criteria, Zapatero said that his position on the matter is well known: “that are absolutely equal rights for men and women”. He added that a constitutional reform is expected, to guarantee that equality and that “there is time” and a whole horizon to do it with calmly. “Anyway, what seems to me advisable to emphasize today is the fact that we have a hereditary horizon is very positive for the foundations of the State”, he said.

There's nothing you can't get from other news sources--after all, besides saying that she's expecting, what else is there to say? The photos are all archive images.

Cool, as I type this I just saw it reported on CNN! It's funny, the reporter said "just" a year after their marriage, while others, more impatient, say, finally! It's all perception, isn't it.

Very happy news.
I found out about it as I was watching the news tonight, it was just a little headline crawl at the bottom of the screen saying Princess Letizia of Spain is pregnant. Still it was unusual since European royals hardly ever make the news on Canadian tv, except for the British royals ofcourse.
Felipe and Letizia's wedding did get good air play here last year though, more than the Danish wedding.
Congrats to Felipe and Letizia and the Spanish royal family.
So many royals expecting babies this year.
I think we'll be seeing a lot of stylish maternity wear

OMG, I just read that Letizia is pregnant. So, two of my wishes came true this year, I wanted Letizia and Mary to be pregnant and they are . I think now all the crown princess are pregnant, except of course the Duchess of Cornwall, you never know, the next "good news" might be from England.

Anyways, BIG Congratulations to the couple, the would-be grandparents, would-be aunts and uncles, would-be cousins and last but not the least, the Spanish people,who are getting an heir to the heir of the Spanish throne.

Congratulatoins to Letizia and Felipe! This is fantastic! I was afraid that they would get left behind in the current baby boom so I'm glad they didn't. I'm excited that so many of the princesses are pregnant, so many pictures we will soon have! So salutations to them and to the Spanish people.
