How come nobody really gives weight to, or even considers, the fact that a woman has to rest after giving birth to two children by C-section twice just within three years?

Oh, yeah, I suddenly remembered: a princess' job is to churn out babies to inherit the crown.

I actually love Letizia's choice of clothes lately except for the beige blazer, it's far too casual. I don't think she's pregnant, it's more like she gained weight which is good.

I tought she looked pregnant last week, but not this week. I really don't know. Hopefully she is not. Her body needs a rest after 2 kids and 2 C-sections. She should enjoy life and work a bit before making herself miserable again in case of another difficult pregnancy.


if your you see all the photos… they you must have 8 children already

I agree ... on the other hand, I thought that she already looked really tired and had a "bad face" during the Philippine State Visit end of last year and didnt turn out pregnant ... 3 kids in 4 years would be really tough. I guess theyll have another one but shes only 36 this year ... enough time to rest abit.

If they want more than two children they will have to have them close together. Any healthy woman will be able to have pregnancies a year apart even after C-section. You may as well get the pregnacies done and over with - Letizia will always lead a very active life - having children close in age will make everything easier. Her physician knows what is best for her and presumably she is listening to his advice.

I don't think having children every other year is too much. There are three and a half years between my eldest two sisters and two years between me and my second sister as well as two between me and my younger sister. It's quite normal in my opinion. Look at Queen Beatrix. She was married in 1966. First baby was born in 1967; second in 1968; third in 1969. How's that for close in age? Queen Margrethe was married in 1967; baby one was born in 1968; baby two in 1969. It's not that unusual. Queen Sofia was married in 1962. Baby one was born in 1963; baby two was born in 1965; baby three was born in 1968.

Yup, and IICR, she had them all c-section.

So, as there are more and more speculations coming up about a possible pregnancy of Princess Letizia:

I would like to ask you to stop speculating in this thread!

If there's a pregnancy the Royal House will announce it sooner or later.

Thank you.

The one thing I like best when viewing pictures of this lovely couple is that in most pictures of the two of them, you will notice the prince looking at her with the most touching look of love together with admiration / pride. It just lovely to see his love for her but the deep level of respect and pride he has in her.

The way the prince treats his wife does him credit and speaks to his character in a way that may sustain the popularity of an otherwise tenuous monarchy. It has been said that the prince does not have his father's charisma, but I prefer his character to his father's.

I wonder if Felipe is truely not as charismatic as his father, or has he not had the chance to be yet because of his father? Geez, that was deep!!! Let me know what you think.

I agree !00% There is not a woman alive that doesn't want her husband to look at her with such love and pride. There was one photo of the two of them, sitting at a table, and you could see him quite clearly but only the side of her face. The look on his face actually made me get teary as it was just so emotional and intense. Damn, that is great!

I don't know about charismatic. They are just two different types. I believe that Felipe is the "Cary Grant" type (and you can not get much better than that) whereas his father is more like the Kurt Douglas figure. Both were idolized -- but Douglas was the smooth talker whereas Grant had the looks and charm -- IMO.
