Changing the constitution?
 
MADRID, April 16 (UPI) -- Spaniards Friday welcomed a proposed change
in the constitution to stop giving male heirs precedence over women
in royal succession.

Socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero included the
announcement he would be seeking the amendment in his investiture
speech Thursday before the Spanish congress, but he said any change
in the law would not apply to the current generation of Spanish
royals.

Under current rules, 36-year-old Crown Prince Felipe will occupy the
Spanish throne after his father King Juan Carlos I, even though
Felipe has two older sisters, Princess Elena, 41, and Princess
Cristina, 39.

Once the constitution is amended, however, the succession will follow
chronologically, regardless of gender, instead of through the male
line.

Members of the public interviewed by Spanish media welcomed the
proposed change. They said it would bring the Spanish monarchy up to
date.

Meanwhile, in another break with tradition, Prince Felipe is
scheduled to marry Spanish television newscaster Letizia Ortiz, a
commoner, in May.

Does anyone know anything about the Spanish nobility system? I am interested to know what exactly a Spanish Grandee was. I belive they were classed as the high nobility, however what exactly distinguished them from other nobles, and what privilages did this give them?

That's rigth. And it's known that King Juan Carlos likes to smoke some cuban cigars. I've also read that Cristina smokes.

On the 24th June KJC celebrates his "onomástica" (i.e. his name's day, since June 24th is the day of San Juan). All the the Royal Family usually attends mass on that day.

"de Todos los Santos"
 
hi:

Why some members of the spanish royal family has "todos los santos" and others don't have it? Irene doesn't have "todos los santos" in her name.

lula 07-15-2005 02:30 PM

In any articles that I have read if they have put on it, but in this moment I do not remember if on having baptized her the cardinal said it or not. " De todos los Santos " it is a tradition, but I imagine that it will depend on the parents if they want to put on it or not.

rchainho 07-15-2005 02:35 PM

thanks lula.:)

lula 07-15-2005 02:39 PM

In the fund it is not important so much, because the normal thing is if they call you by the first name, since it happens with the Prince or the Infantas. But with the children, the journalists, not if for doing the grace or why they say all the names. For example, Felipe Juan Froilán de Todos los Santos, in family is Felipe or "pipe", nevertheless for the press it is Froilán (because thanks does the name to them, poor child).

Felipe and Letizia not like they were calling the baby, but they should say first the day that the name should be born for him which they are going to call it, and later, several days later when present the baby all the names , probably this way call the baby by his name and not by the whole list

Victoria2000 07-15-2005 02:47 PM

"de todos los santos" is only for boys, the girls hasn´t todos los santos is her name, for example infanta cristina is "de la santisima trinidad", victoria federica is only victoria federica and infanta elena has more names but she hasn´t todos los santos


(sorry my english)

Nevertheless in some articles of today press the name appears of " de Todos los Santos", to seeing if I can see later the imágenes of the baptism and hear the name that Rouco declared.
It is true, I was not remembering that for the women it was in the habit of using " de la Santísima Trinidad ". But good, it is necessary to bear in mind that these children are children of the Infantas and not of the Prince Inheritor, for what they do not have follow so much the traditions.
