Here's a rough translation for our friends, who don't read Spanish:
Infanta Cristina is expecting to give birth to her baby in the first week of June. Yesterday afternoon, and following the medical advice, she could be seen walking on the surroundings of la Diagonal and receiving the greetings from people, who wished her a good childbirth.
The Duchess of Palm needs to wait two more weeks to know whether her 4rd child is another boy, since (like in her previous pregnancies) the Infanta did not want to know the sex of the baby before the birth.
During her stroll of yesterday, the Duchess of Palm visited the jewel exhibition of her cousin Dimitri of Yugoslavia, who offered her a topaz cross, on the occasion of her new maternity. Infanta Elena and princess Letizia have rock crystal and brilliants earrings designed by prince Dimitri, who is preparing a special piece for the first child of the Princes of Asturias.
MR. UNDARGARIN, HUSBAND OF PRINCESS CRISTINA OF BORBON, ATTENDED THE TRIBUTE TO THE CATALAN CHORAL SOCIETY WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE CATALAN BANK "LA CAIXA" MR URDANGARIN ATTENDED BY HIMSELF. HIS WIFE IS READY TO GIVE BIRTH TO THEIR FOURTH CHILD
Iñaki Urdangarín, one of the best Spanish handball players of all times, will dress again the equipment, at the stadium of Palau Blaugrana; something that he repeatedly did so many times as a professional player. The game will pay tribute to Enric Masip, who was retired some months ago, putting a full stop to a generation of players that only gave successes to the Barça. Commanded by Valero Rivera, the Dream Team gained six European Cups during the 90’s.
Five years after his retirement, the Duke of Palma will now repeat those so famous lefty cannon shots with which he used to delight the fans of Barça and of the Spanish Selection. Only the birth of his baby with Infanta Cristina may possibly impede him to play this party, which will take place on June 4th, at 4:30 p.m.. The entrance will cost only 5 € and the funds obtained with the game will be destined to help the InfantileHospital of the Vall d'Hebrón.
The Royal House of Spain has asked the Franciscan monks of San Salvador of Jerusalem for water from the river Jordan, to baptise the baby of Infanta Cristina. The three children of Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín (Juan Valentin, Pablo Nicholas and Miguel), as well as the children of Infanta Elena and Jaime de Marichalar (Froilán and Victoria Federica) were also christened with water taken from the Biblical river, in which Jesus was baptized by Saint John Baptist. The Franciscan monks have assured to EFE that they have not received a similar request from the Princes de Asturias, "because it’s still untimely".

Perhaps this may be better understood? (I might be able to help a little better if I had the article in spanish, I presume.) Forgive me if it doesn't help anybody.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess". -www.theroyalist.net-
Iñaki Urdangarín, one of the best Spanish handball players of all times, will dress again the equipment, at the stadium of Palau Blaugrana
According to El Semanal Digital, the Duke of Palma has discarded the hypothesis of participating in the game in tribute to Enric Masip (the illustrious captain of Barça’s Dream Team), which will take place tomorrow, Saturday. Urdangarín assured that "as soon as I can, I will join the participants in the tribute, but I haven’t been able to train, nor will I play. We are living the most important week... or couple of weeks of the year, with the birth of our fourth child, and I believe that I must concentrate all my efforts on that".
I'm really getting anxious about this baby you know?
As matter of fact, I'm anxious because of two babies, Cristina's and my best friend's.
In the case of my friend, her C-Section is already scheduled for June 11th. This whole wait for Cristina's is really anxiety-driving, I just imagine how will I be when Letizia is this close of giving birth....:o
