Prince spoke with dona Letizia delivery concluded prizes Oviedo

The Prince of Asturias called by telephone her wife, dona Letizia, after concluding this evening in the Theatre Campoamor of Oviedo the act of delivery of the prizes that take his name and that this year celebrate the edition XXV.
In conversation with a group of journalists, don Felipe said that the Princess had transmitted her sorrow for not have been today with him in this solemn act, which she saw for television, and that she commented that she had thrilled hervery much.
The gynaecologist who attends to dona Letizia, pregnant woman of eight months, dissuaded yesterday that the Princess should travel to Oviedo.
Don Felipe made clear to the journalists that the Princess is well and that both wait with illusion for the birth of their first son, foreseen by the middle of November.

I was shocked and also pleased to see that Antonio Damasio received this prize for his work in neurology -- I know him. This really brings the whole Awards ceremony very close to home!

Oh Gosh... Tonight I was sleeping and all of a sudden I woke up. And do you know what was my dream about? I was dreaming about me, reading "El mundo" and "iHola!" in the internet and there it was written that the Princess has already given birth to a little GIRL! :) I couldn't fall asleep again and I wanted to check it, but at the moment my computer is in my parents's bedroom! So today I turned on computer and what? The baby (maybe girl, although I still think it is a boy) is still in his/her mummy's belly!

The journalists are more hysterical than you. :p
Yesterday in the receipt that existed after the Prizes someone raised the rumor of which Letizia had been deposited again. For what they say the newspapers the people were looking for the father of the Princess to ask him until someone of the Royal House said that it was a lie .... so imagine how the journalists are.

But everything is calm, enclosed according to the agenda the Royal House Letizia will come on Monday to a dinner in Madrid.

Felipe de Borbón made his first speech on the occasion of the first edition of the Prince of Asturias Awards that were given in autumn of 1981. Twenty-five years later, in the same scene of the Campoamor theatre, that boy at whom his parents were proudly watching is now on the verge of having his first child, and that circumstance, together with the absence of the princess of Asturias, marked yesterday’s ceremony in Oviedo.

As it happened last year, there was a great ovation at the mention to Doña Letizia, who was not at the theatre, but finally her thanks were listened by the words that the Prince pronounced in her name and from the bottom of her heart. After the first years in which the Kings accompanied their son, the Prince ended up assuming alone the prize-giving ceremony. There were years when Don Felipe was growing together with the importance of the awards. By Oviedo there have been personalities like Yasser Arafat, Arthur Miller, Miguel Delibes, Carlo Maria Martini, Hussein of Jordan, Woody Allen and many other; more than two hundred personalities and organizations that have clearly marked the social thought of the Prince.

After the ceremony of the last year, the first one that Doña Letizia shared with Don Felipe, it was awkward to see yesterday again the Prince alone in the scene of the Campoamor. The Queen, as always, occupied one of the boxes of the theatre, specially moved with the arrival of the dancers Mayan Plisetskaya and Tamara Rojo, who agreed for the first time in a scene, and with the one of the Daughters of Charity.

Outside, on the street, the Asturian people and visitors specially cheered the world champion of F1, Fernando Alonso, and a surrealist detail took place, when the people who were accompanied the pilot made it difficult to obtain photographs of the champion, at his arrival to the reception that the Prince offered in the morning. The reason was that Alonso, who, like the rest of the awarded personalities, was transported in Audi, has a contract with Renault that prevents him to use and to appear him in public with any vehicle of another label.

Material subjects that contrasted with the intellectual and social commitment of Simone Veil, the inconformism of the Italian writer Giovanni Sartori, able to attack the very own Pope, and with the simplicity of the nuns of Vicente Paul, authentic champions in the distribution of breads, faith and hope, and whose humility even prevented them to take part in the family photo of the Prince with the awarded personalities. And it was the sisters who firstly moved Don Felipe, when commenting to him that they have prayed for Doña Letizia and the chil that is on the way, but mainly because they were the only ones, among all the awarded personalities, that destined the 50000 euros of the prize to solidarity causes.

All the awarded ones had words in memory of Doña Letizia, and it could not lack a reference in Don Felipe’s speech, to the special moments that the couple in living. The words of the future father equally shared feeling, knowledge and reason, the three ingredients that, according to Prof. Antonio Damasio, another one of the awarded personalities, must be mixed in equal parts, in the cocktail of life.

I have seen the images of the Prince in his visit to porrúa. He has played to the skittles and one has come out in photographs with many children. All the people of the village was asking him about Letizia, the mayors they have remembered her in their speech and also the Prince. The Prince has remembered that Letizia knew already Porrúa, since from girl she was passing the summers closely together of there. Porrúa is not very far from Sardéu.

The Prince ensalza ' the deceived work and the sacrifice ' that make possible ' the real progress '

The Prince Felipe visited today the locality llanisca of Porrúa, to deliver the Prize to the neighbors to the Exemplary Village, an award that every year Prince of Asturias grants the Foundation to recognize the persons' labor or group that should have been distinguished for preserving their traditional values and the culture.
Don Felipe de Borbón encouraged in his speech the neighbors of the locality, placed in the Asturian east, to following ' working with the same illusion, tenacity, and from the satisfaction of knowing that, as consequence of the made well work, you will make your life and that of your children fuller and better '.
The Prince, who was accompanied by regional and local authorities, assured that ' the real progress, the achievement of a better quality of life, of an education that should reach to all the social caps and that the most just conquest of a society, where there is opportunity in order that they all could realize his dreams, only can obtain with deceived work, with sacrifices, being entrepreneurs, assuming the risks of the dizzy and difficult changes that take place in the world '.
The Prince ensalzó besides the beauty of the places llaniscos and he was grateful for the generosity and the fondness that always he feels when he is in the Principality.
Before delivering the speech, the Prince realized a tour for the principal streets of the village, visited the Ethnographic Museum of Asturias and other typical buildings of the zone, besides an exhibition on the shepherding in Porrúa and on the traditional apparel.
During the tour, his Highness received constants samples of affection of the neighbors who were centering in the streets to be able to see and give the hand to Don Felipe . He could contemplate besides a concentration of cattle of different races, specially of the Asturian one and visiting a cheese shop. After the official act of delivery of the award, the Prince discovered the commemorative plate of the award.
With the delivery of the Prize to Porrúa Prince of Asturias finished the visit of Don Felipe to the Principality on the occasion of the delivery of the Prizes. Great stay away in this visit she was the Princess, Dona Letizia, who could not come to any of the acts due to her outpost been of gestation.
