Spain’s royal couple made a midnight dash to hospital last night after an eight-month pregnant Princess Letizia felt contractions. After an examination the Princess left with her husband Prince Felipe, who said his wife was feeling some "discomfort". The sex of the baby is unknown, but if Letizia gives birth to a girl there are talks of changing Spanish law to allow a princess to have the same right to the throne as a prince. Hello! has a photo of the couple leaving the hospital.
