Spain's Princess Cristina, or is the Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, has given birth to her second son, Pablo Nicolas, who will be seventh in line to the throne, her husband Inaki Urdangarin said yesterday. The princess and Urdangarin, former captain of Spain's national handball team, already have a son, Juan, aged 18 months. Urdangarin told journalists he had toyed with the idea of calling the new baby Constitution because he was born late on Wednesday's Constitution day holiday in Spain. “It would have marked him out a bit,” he said. Cristina is the second child of Spanish King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia. Her younger brother Felipe is first in line to succeed Juan Carlos to head the monarchy followed by older sister Elena and her two children. The leader of the local government Francesc Antich and the Mayor of Palma Juan Fageda were quick to congratulate the happy couple. The Infanta Cristina, was made the Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, following her marriage two years ago. The couple have been frequent visits to the island and spent their summer holidays in Palma last year.
