Crown Prince Felipe’s wife, Princess Letizia, is expecting a second child – a baby girl – a royal palace spokesman said Monday.

Letizia, who married Felipe in May 2004, gave birth on October 31st, 2005 to Princess Leonor.

Her pregnancy with a second child, and another girl, was expected to defuse a royal and political debate about succession to the Spanish throne.

Currently, the law states that the first-born son is the first in line to the throne, but many in Spain have argued that the law is discriminatory and that Leonor should take precedence.

Princess Leonor is second in line to the Spanish throne after her father and could become the first female head of state in Spain since Queen Isabella II who reigned from 1833 to 1868.

But she could be displaced if her parents later have a boy, as the current Spanish constitution retains male primacy when it comes to the succession.

Spain’s Socialist government is mulling a constitutional change to the succession laws, a move backed by most Spaniards. But the move has foundered on opposition from conservative lawmakers and has been put on the back burner for the time being.

Letizia, a 34-year-old divorcee who read the evening news on national television before meeting the prince, and Felipe, 38, married in a sumptuous Madrid ceremony in May 2004 in what was Spain’s first royal wedding for a century.

Best Wishes!

    I absolutley love when you post about the prince and princess’ in Europe. I think Leonor is beautiful. I have a son, Asia, and I’m having a daughter. I wonder if the Letizia-Felipe sapwn will be born about the same time as Mary’s newest child-can’t remember what her husband’s name is. But their son Christian is so cute!
