It had been nearly a century since the capital celebrated a royal wedding, as the present king and queen married in Athens, and the prince's sisters, Infanta Elena and Infanta Cristina, married in Sevilla and Barcelona respectively. As Letizia's previous marriage involved only a civil ceremony, the Roman Catholic Church does not consider it valid and therefore did not require an annulment before her Catholic marriage to the Prince of Asturias.

As for the Infanta's future as a possible monarch, The Prince of Asturias was quoted in the Spanish Herald, when asked by a reporter if "a queen has [been] born", the prince answered, "For now a princess has been born. But the logic of the times means that if the reform that the administration is planning takes place, she will be." On 25 September 2006 the Royal House announced that the couple were expecting their second child in May 2007. On 27 November 2006 it was announced that the second child the Princess was expecting was also a girl. On 29 April 2007, at 16:50 h, her second daughter, Infanta Sof?a, was born.
