The night of Trascorrales

After the concert of closing, the guests dismissed the day together with the Prince Felipe

It treats about one of the indispensable appointments in the agenda of the Prizes Prince of Asturias . When the first day almost had ended, the square of Trascorrales received last night to the employers of the Foundation Prince of Asturias , as well as to many representatives of the cultural Asturian life in a dinner deprived which Don Felipe attended.

The entry to the enclosure developed with normality and the attendees' abundance passed little by little until there came the shift of the institutional procession. The Prince accompanied by the chief of the Royal House, Alberto Aza, was the first one of the procession. After them, the president of the Principality, Vicente Alvarez Areces, and the chairwoman of the General Meeting of the Principality, Maria Jesus Alvarez. They closed the group of institutional representatives the delegate of the Government, Antonio Trevín, and the mayor of Oviedo, Gabino de Lorenzo.

Nevertheless, when there took place the entry of Don Felipe to the interior of the former square of the fish, already many attendees had passed. One of the most early rising was the businessman Plácido Arango. The exministros Matías Rodríguez and Jose Lladó also came to the appointment before that the Prince, as the political and diplomatic Marcelino Oreja, and Manuel Gómez de Pablos, honorary president of Iberdrola.

The pace of access there was marked by the ending of the concert of closing of the Week of Cajastur's Music in the Audience Prince Felipe. This way, in the university plane stands out the rector Juan Vázquez, together with the emeritus teacher Jose Antonio Martínez Alvarez. Whereas in the managerial area stood out Jesus Sánez de Miera, executive of the food corporation Peñasanta, Jacobo Cosmen, of the managerial group ALSA, and Fernando Masaveu. Little later there came the ex-president of the Principality Sergio Marqués. Also there were present at the meeting Sabino Fernandez Campo and Maria Teresa Alvarez.

They close the group of attendees, the representatives of the Foundation Prince of Asturias, Graciano García, director, and Jose Ramon Alvarez Rendueles, president.

The rain prevented that congrase before the doors of back yards so much public as in past editions, when the Princess Letizia was one of the protagonists of the party and one of the prominent figures preferred by the ovetenses.

Thanks for all pics, is such a relief she is already in Oviedo. She did look awesome, even without make-up, I thought her to be more tired than she was, it was already 23.00. The dress (definetely pre-mummy type for me!) and leather coat looks great on her, I thought she would wear something more casual and comfortable for the travel, but anyway, it's such a pleasure to see her smiling all the time

Yes... Coverage of the awards begins at 18:30 Madrid time.

The quick coverage of the audience is now over. It just showed Felipe and Letizia distributing medals (I suppose that they are of the Foundation?) and then they had the laureates lined up for a photo. So far so good for the pregnant Princess... she looks relaxed, smiling, and beautiful... I look forward to seeing the photos probably in a few minutes?

It looks like the color of the afternoon is red... almost all ladies, including the Princess had a red jacket on :)

I really don't think that it was quite good answer when the Princess said that it is going to be the Prince to say when little Leonor will visit Asturias! And she doens't have anything to do with that?

Lula... probably there was a memo on the dress code that was issued

OR... the ladies thought that red will perk people's spirits up considering the rain that is pouring in Oviedo these days.

The Princes receive the Awardees in OviedoOviedo. EFE

Don Felipe and Doña Letizia had a hearing this noon with the awardees of this year’s Prince of Asturias Prizes, which in its twentieth sixth edition has been granted by the Foundation that the Heir to the Crown presides over. The Princes saluted each of the awardees, and (with them) posed in a group photo after Don Felipe gave them the standard/pins of the prestigious awards.

First in greeting the Princes were the representatives of the National Geographic, awardee of the prize on Communication and Humanities; followed by the players of the Spanish Basketball Team, headed by their coach, Pepu Hernandez, who also traveled to Oviedo.

Others that were presented before the Princes were: the awardee of the prize on Scientific and Technical Research, Juan Ignacio Cirac; the one on Letters, the New York writer Paul Auster; and the Spanish film director Pedro Almodóvar, prize on the Arts, who was accompanied by his brother and producer, Agustín. The last ones in greeting the Princes were: the father of Bill Gates, William Gates (who is in Oviedo to receive the prize on International Cooperation on behalf of his son and his daughter-in-law – the only absentees in this afternoon’s ceremony); ex- president of Ireland Mary Robinson (Social Sciences) and the director of UNICEF, Isabel Croqwley, (Concord).

All of them will be present at 18:30 hours in the Campoamor Theater of Oviedo, where the Princes of Asturias will preside over the solemn ceremony of the delivery of the awards that, as in every year, the Queen will follow from the theater’s box of honor.

… Before greeting the awardees, the Princes de Asturias also shook hands with the presidents of the juries who this year have screened/selected the awardees – the representatives were headed today by the ex-president of the Xunta of Galicia and senator Manuel Fraga.

The princes also received the patrons of the Prince of Asturias Foundation and at mid-morning, they also met with trustees of the institution who have contributed financially to support the foundation’s activities since its creation.

This group is composed of personalities with different social backgrounds, who have lent some form on direction/guidance or have contributed to the economic sustainability of the institution. The Princes will attend an informal lunch with the awardees and the guests to the ceremony at the Campoamor Theater -- which will take place at 6:30 this afternoon.
