Great news! Hopefully, the constitution will still be changed even if it is not as pressing of a matter anymore.

I really hope Infanta Leonor will become Queen of Spain one day! She's already such a professional young Lady (refering to the official pictures, where she poses with her parents) .
I am sure the new Babygirl will be as cute as her adorable sister!
CasaReal.es is still not working for me.. there seems to be a huge interest .

4 grandsons and 4 granddaughters for the King and Queen!!!

I must say I love surprises and it would be cool to follow the birth here on line and still not to know the sex, but now circumstances are different and the pressure on Leti will surely be lower

Little sister for Infanta Leonor ("Hola"):

During the official reception hosted in the Royal Palace, last October 12th, the Prince had already explained that he could announce the sex of his second child. The announcement of the second pregnancy of Doña Letizia reopened the necessity of reforming the Constitution, in order to equalize the rights of men and women, in the succession to the throne.
The House of the King and Don Felipe himself have stated in many occasions there was no haste "in undertaking this modification", since there is still a generation in between: Don Felipe is the Heir, while Don Juan Carlos is the King. But today Don Felipe and Doña Letizia have decided to make the news public: their second child will also be a girl, which gives more time to undertake the reform of the Constitution.

Brilliant news. I really hope that the law will now be changed so that Leonor can become Queen.

I'm guessing to stop guessing.

Great news for los Principes, and all the rest of the family. They said Letizia is doing well, and I can just hope that she continues to do well, and that they have another healthy, happy little girl. And hopefully she will be as adorable as her big sister!

I'm so surprized that they announced it. I was convinced that Felipe was just saying that, and didn't really intend to announce it. Last time I doubt the Prince of Asturias. (maybe)

another girl?
wow! i'm so glad they announced... at least we won't be so concerned to see what it is when the due date comes! now we only need to know the name... :)

it will be a nice pair. two girls are always a beautiful combination in royalty as they always make a good duo (look at the danish queen and her sisters, queen elizabeth and sisters or the little dutch princesses)! i'm sure leonor will love to be a big sister of other little girl and share time together in their princessy lifes...

I can't quite see why it is necessary to announce the sex of the baby so early.
Either they are determined to change the law or they are not.
Does the change depend on announcements and birth-dates or on principles?

And what if it turns out that the baby is a boy in the end?
As it happened to Mathilde and Philippe of Belgium.
They were told their 3rd child is a girl and then it was a boy.

If they have confirmed it, it is because it is sure, today in day there are means every more sophisticated.

I do not remember what happened in Belgium, but I believed that the Royal Houses were never announcing the sex of the babies they announced it officially or it was a rumor?

The Constitution will change, though it was evident that boy or girl were going to be late in doing it because the political situation is not for Constitutional changes.

The reason of announcing it is to finish with the polemics, and not to give arguments in order that the pregnancy of the Princess turns into a topic of political, journalistic and social debate. Surely for her it will be better, and will be able to be calmer.

Philippe and Mathilde never said that there 3rd child was a girl, I don't know where you got that information from. As far as I can tell (and I looked at some old threads) no couple has ever announced ahead of time.

Doesn't this mean that Letizia is at least 5 months along in her pregnancy? I have never been pregnant myself, but I believe you have to wait until the fifth month to determine gender. Sooo, maybe in March or April Leonor will get her little sister!!

16 weeks, but I think it is easier if it is a boy.
