Who views the member of nobility as more suitable partners than commoners ? Nobles themselve LOL . That was exactly the point of Carmen. In terms of equal royal marriage law, the nobles and commoners were in the same boat.

Completely untrue {edited by Avalon}. The second marriage of Charles happened after those commoner marriages. Princess of Asturias will automatically become Queen Letizia after Felipe becomes King without any help.
Elena studies education and is a kindergarten teacher. She is far behind her brother in terms of preparation to be the Head of State (I don't have anything against Kindergarten teachers). I do think the transition for her to be the heiress, later the Queen, would be extremely difficult , at least in a country like Spain with complicated political and media environment and it has nothing to do with her personal life.

You may regard my views as clueless. You are entitled to your opinion and I have a right to express my own. I have not offended anyone in my post. I have stated my understanding of the issues without pretences of being infallible.
The second marriage of Prince Charles has set the precedent that the Crown Prince do not lose his right to ascend the throne just because he is married to a divorced commoner. This is the point under discussion, isn't it?

It's not a matter of opinions. You need to follow the constitution on the approval of CP's marriage and the right to the throne (other posters had stated here quite a few times). As long as PoA's marriage is approved by the King and the Paliament, he doesn't lose his right to the throne, other people's marriage (ex. Charles') has nothing to do with it.

I am glad to learn that Prince and Princess of Asturias are not threatened by the stupid ancient laws. It is nice that the Spanish Royal family respected the choice of Prince Felipe and that the article in question has nothing to do with the reality.

The only reason by that prince Felipe were lost his rights al throne of Spain, had been if its marriage had been made in against del King and delas Spanish Cortes. The pragmatica sanction already is in disuse and thanks to God the marriages between different princes of monarquias are not the habitual thing. The benefit among other things, is that at least the diseases of genetic transmission quedarón in the forgetfulness. We do not forget that the daughters of Reina Victory infected to monarquias of average world hemofilia. better at the present time, right?

A pool: El 70% de los españoles cree que el Rey no debe abdicar

Some people can translate it better than I can?.

I think it's very positive for SRF, Monarchy an the King.

Opinion abaut the princess of Asturias is very positive, I think so!... 75% of spaniards think that she will be a queen respected, only 14% no (question nº 10). Question nº 9 is abaut the princess too.

question nº 7, opinion about the King's abdication it's very interesant too.

Is Juan Carlos well received by the general public of Catalonia ?

If the majority of the people of Catalonia decide to go their separate way from the rest of Spain, what are they going to do with the king ?

That surveys are a bit confusing. EL Pais published that 87% of the Spanish citizens thought that Felipe should win his trone working harder and that he was not prepared yet.

Letizia ranges from about 58% of acceptance specially in big cities but a low 35% in provinces. Recently I have read about 60% in total.

I am not sure if this has already been discussed or even if this is the right place for this, but does anyone know what will happen to the House of Borbon when Leonor's kids rule? In other words would they start a new dynasty since their father would likely not be a Bornon? Will Leonor be the end of the Bornon line? I know that's a long ways off but I was just wondering.

I assume that when the time comes, steps will be taken to prevent the change of the dynasty name. Perhaps, they will adopt the same path as England: when Princess Elizabeth became Queen, it would have been the standard procedure for the entire Royal House to adopt the surname of her husband (who belonged to the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, a branch of the House of Oldenburg), as was the case with the previous female Monarch – Queen Victoria. However, after Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the Throne in 1952, it was officially declared that the House (and Family) name will remain Windsor.

Thanks Marsel. I didn't realize they had done that in England.

Whatever the children of Leonor will be named, the other dinastic members of the Bourbon family will probably claim the headship of the house, something not linked to the Spanish crown but to the Capetien and Bourbon cultural and moral heritage.
I think it would be more fair if Spanish law adopt a system as the belgian one (I think) in which the surname of the princes is "of Spain".
