Ok, so we have to wait:) . I really miss Letizia, she must have been really sad about not going to Asturias, although the child is the most important thing for her at the moment.

I can only try to imagine how impatient Princess Letizia must be to give birth (even more impatient than us Royal watchers .)

I wish her a safe delivery and a healthy baby!

It is a shame that ultimately has not gone to the dinner. I believe that already we will not see her until we see her with the baby in arms. Though partly for her it is sure that it is better because she will be calmer and relaxed. From the " false alarm " of another day it seems that the press has become a bit hysterical ... already they have begun with articles in press and television ... how the baby decides to be late in being born this is going to become very long.

Why is it a shame when a 8-months-pregnant woman has to have some rest before the birth of the child, may she be princess Letizia of Spain or Mrs Smith.

If a woman is told to rest then she should whether she is a princess or anyother woman. Her duties will be there after she has the baby.

Two weeks before the pregnancy arrives at its end, Doctor Luis Ignacio Recasens has preferred his illustrious patient to spend these days in calm and, above all, near the medical centre, where everything is prepared for the childbirth. The Princess also shares that opinion and had remained at home, although she would have liked to go to the supper of last night.

The Princess doesnt attend any official act since last October12th. According to sources of the House of the King, the rest of Doa Letizia does not mean that the childbirth is imminent, although the reason given to the absence of the Princess in the supper of last night was her "advanced state of gestation".

Last night, the Princeexcused the absence of the Princess, as he did in Oviedo, and transmitted her greetings to the members of the Enterprise Confederation of Madrid and to the Foundation Syndrome of Down, who had organized the dinner.

Today, Doa Letizia wont accompany the Prince to Salamanca, whose university will invest the Chilean president, Ricardo Lagos, as doctor honoris causa.

Thans for the translation, Elsa M. The Prince excused for the absence of Letizia and said sth about her state at the beginning of his speech. It's very important, it's not just an answer for journalists any more. I think it means, that, as Lula said here, next time we will see the Princess already with a baby in arms. Of course we are sad, but it's certainly better for her not to go anywhere.

Next Tuesday, two years will have passed, since the engagement announcement of the Prince of Asturias; a date that Don Felipe and Doa Letizia will celebrate on the verge of the birth of their first-born. Its birth will agree, in addition, with another very significant celebration: the 30th anniversary of the Reign, since next November 22 the proclamation of Don Juan Carlos as King will be commemorated.

In any case, the truth is that, two years ago, nobody suspected that the life of the Prince of Asturias was going to experience so important changes; not even the Princess, who was still presenting the television newscasts at night, on Spanish Television, until the rumour of her relationship with Don Felipe was spread and therefore the House of His Majesty the King decided to make public the commitment.

In the meanwhile, there have passed two years of intense official activity, with hundreds of official acts in numerous towns of Spain, along with tens of trips abroad. From now on, in the future immediate its going to take place the birth of an infant, who will occupy the second place in the line of succession (behind his father, the Heir to the Throne) and it will assure the continuity of the Dynasty.

Just when we are still a bit sleepy with the fuss of a royal birth, there are already articles in the Spanish press remembering how challenging the future is for the Princes of Asturias; very far from being a calm stroll through the roads of history...

Here’s an article showing that:
http://www.madridiario.es/mdo/opinio...njo-081105.php


The Monarchy in Spain has been legitimized by its utilitarianism of which Don Juan Carlos has been the maximum exponent, at the most delicate moments of our recent history. It has not been the Monarchy, but this King, who has conquered the respect, the endorsement and the affection of the Spaniards, for his work before his origin.

It’s good to keep this in mind now that Leonor de Borbón appears like the future female Head of State, anticipating a constitutionalist reform that is needed in so many other aspects. But above all, it will be her parents, the Princes of Asturias, who will need to personally conquer a place that they already have for granted. The fact that Don Felipe appealed to the "continuity of the saga", after announcing the pregnancy of Doña Letizia, and that, since then, the royal couple has been mostly a protagonist of the press of the heart, indicates how far they still are from finding their utility in a modern Spain.

They have had a certainly precious child, but to the rest it appears as the future Head of State. And something so delicate and important cannot be dissolved, glossing only data for the social chronicle, as showy as perhaps in fact pointless.

The lack of an historical context like the one that the King has called upon himself, during the transition to democracy adds one more difficulty to the succession, but it simultaneously forces the Princes of Asturias to look for a reason to conquer the citizens. Perhaps nothing indicates that they are looking for it, but it would be good if they left the scope in which they are circumscribed and they began demonstrating their potential, beyond the protocol ceremonies and the pages of couché paper.

It’s not the case of trying to deny there’s a reason to continue (as like legitimately millions of Spaniards can think), but of expecting that they will find it: if the Monarchy has been useful till today, it can continue being it in the future. That one is the challenge of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia, and to approach it without fear but the best way they can.

The Princes put according to PSOE and PP

Princes de Asturias are obtaining something that, with the times that run, seems incredible: to mainly put in agreement as much to the followers of the Socialist Party Working Spanish like of the Popular Party.

The voters, militants and political supporters of both formation agree in indicating that it will be good for Spain that they are the Kings of Spain, after stop being it Don Juan to Carlos and Doa Sofa. This is, at least, which reflects a recent survey, in the occasion of the 30 Anniversary of the restoration of the Monarchy in our country. In particular, 80.4% of the voters of the PSOE consider that Don Felipe and Doa Letizia will be good monarchs, whereas they are of the same opinion 80.1% of the voters of the PP, in an almost millimetric coincidence on their political adversaries.

Thank you very much for this article, fanletizia!
It's good to know the other side of the story and verify that the future of the Spanish monarchy is actually stronger than what was pointed last week by the newspapers connected with republican ideologies...
