Another royal baby will soon make its debut into the world. It's been announced that Spain's Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia are expecting their second child next May. The Zarzuela Palace officially confirmed the pregnancy on Monday afternoon adding that Princess Letizia was feeling well and would continue with her official agenda.
However, despite reassurances Letizia did not accompany the rest of the royal family to a dinner held by the King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia in honor of Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva Monday night.
Felipe and Letizia's first child, Princess Leonor, recently celebrated her first birthday. She is the king's seventh grandchild, and is currently second in line to the throne after her father.
If the couple's second child is a boy he will overtake his sister Leonor in line to the throne, under the current terms of the Spanish Constitution.
There has been an ongoing debate in Spain over constitutional reform to give women the same inheritance rights to the throne as men, but the announcement of the pregnancy, which has come sooner than expected, has put the debate on hold.
