I saw it in the tv. Letizia was speaking all the time with Felipe, I think she was uncomfortable because of the pregnancy. I like a lot the dress of Cristina. She is always very good dressed acording with the moment.
I think Letizia is not in the reception now in the palace because she is feeling bad.
The flag returned to the parade because this one is dedicated to the international missions. The Kings presided over the act. Next they will offer a reception in the Real Palace, to which Letizia Ortiz will not go. The Kings have presided over the military parade of the Day of the National Celebration, in which he has returned to wave the American flag, and in that the 3,900 military have participated about, 206 vehicles and 81 airplanes and helicopters. By this time, the present personalities in the act of the Armed Forces go to an official reception in the Real Palace, which the princess of Asturias, Letizia Ortiz, will not attend. In the march, that this year has paid tribute to the international missions, it has been seen, for the first time to companies of voluntary reservists and of just created Military Unit of Emergencias (UME). In the tribune of the Madrilenian seat of Columbus, they accompany to the Kings the president by the Government, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, the presidents of the Congress, Manuel Marín, and of the Senate, Red Javier, as well as all the autonomic and representing members of the Government, presidents of the main institutions. n that consisted the parade Officially the act began with the arrival of the Kings, received with Decree military honorses. Next, the typical act of tribute took place to which they gave his life by Spain. Later, about the 3,900 military, 206 vehicles, 81 aonaves and 150 horses crossed the Madrilenian Stroll of the Castilian. In tribute to the international missions, this year flags of "the nations marched past friends and allies" in the mission of Kosovo (KFOR), reason why could be contemplated the flags of Germany, the United States, France, Italy, Sweden and Portugal, in addition to the Spanish. It emphasized the presence of the flag of the U.S.A., that did not wave since it did it in 2003 next to the one of other countries that had taken part in the war of Iraq. The then leader of the opposition, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, did not rise before the passage of the American flag as he shows of his opposite position the war.

Thank you very much for sharing:wub:.

During the reception at the Royal Palace, the journalists apparently cornered Prince Felipe to ask him about constitutional reform, the second pregnancy of the Princess, and of course, Infanta Leonor...

Here's an article:
translated online with Google, edited by me:

Prince of Asturias considers that the reform of the Constitution for the access of women to the throne is not “urgent”

Don Felipe has attended, without the Princess of Asturias but next to the rest of the Royal Family, the reception celebrated in the Royal Palace for today’s, 12 of October, National Day Celebrations. Doña Letizia was present in the earlier military parade that took place in the Paseo de la Castellana de Madrid, but requested permission from Don Juan Carlos to be absent in the reception given the annoyances of her second pregnancy -- informed by a spokesperson from the House of the King. The Princess of Asturias was present at the military parade, like the rest of authorities that attended, standing up in the tribune of honor, but later she considered it fitting not to be in the reception in which the Royal Family would saluted one-by-one to near a thousand guests. After the greetings in the Throne Hall, the reception evolved on foot, for almost 2 hours, in the formal dining room (?) of the
Royal Palace.

In a candid conversation with journalists, the Prince of Asturias reiterated that it is not urgent to reform the Magna Carta to compare the rights of women and men in the succession to Corona. Don Felipe, before the birth of his second child, confessed that from the human point of view, he and his wife would prefer not to know the sex of the baby until its birth. But, he emphasized that if it is considered appropriate/needed, it would not be a problem to know and make it known if their second child is a boy or a girl. While the Prince was talking for a few minutes with the president of the PP (opposition), Mariano Rajoy, a journalist took advantage and asked the PP's position about the reform of the Constitution, with regard to the article 57 that governs the succession to the Throne of Spain. “The opposition always will act with common sense”, Rajoy affirmed categorically in the presence of Don Felipe.

To the questions on how is the Princess… Don Felipe responded that she has lots of inconveniencies, like in her first pregnancy, but added that he is confident that she’ll be present in
Oviedo’s Compoamor Theater next Friday in the delivery of the Prince of Asturias Prizes. Last year, Doña Letizia, in her last month of pregnancy, attended the parade of the 12 of October, but she was not present in the later reception nor in the delivery of the prizes in Asturias.

The Prince’s face lit up when asked about Infanta Leonor, who will turn a year old on the 31st – a calm girl, very good, and who in her first year, had not had even a simple cold. Infant Leonor, according to her father, begins to take her first steps with support. Although she still does not say ‘papa’ or ‘mama’ with ease, she says with total clarity “agua” (water!) :lol:. Water -- which Don Felipe withstood stoically in Avila yesterday in the act to deliver the promotion of the new agents of the National Police, which took place under an intense rain, and the Prince as well as the authorities attended without umbrellas -- fact that was also remembered today, as its recent trip to Washington (U.S.A.).
