The Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, Princess Cristina and her husband Inaki Urdangarin are expecting a third child, who will be eighth in line to the throne, court sources said yesterday. The news was greeted with “satisfaction and joy” in both families, said a source at the Zarzuela Palace. Urdangarin and Princess Cristina, fifth in line to the throne, already have two boys, Juan Valentin de Todos los Santos, aged two, and Pablo Nicolas, who will be one next December. Princess Cristina, the second daughter of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, is fifth in line to the throne. Her younger brother, the unmarried Prince Felipe, is the heir to the throne, followed by the king's eldest daughter, Elena. Princess Cristina married Urdangarin, a Basque handball player, in 1997 in the Catalan city of Barcelona where she lives and works.
