What was the hurry of giving an award to Ingrid Betancourt? Information about all the hostages and their heroic behaviour are just now filtering out. Seems quite impulsive to honor her without the full picture of the ordeal.

La Opinion de Zamora/España descubre una nueva Letizia
Spaniards have seen during these days in Oviedo, that princess Letizia has found herself a new style. The princess is more beautiful than ever. One thing in her new look are the highlights in her hair. Pants, jackets and skirt suits, coats with a knee height are some of the basic wardrobe of hers. She is a a working woman, as well as princess and she needs to feel comfortable with what she wears. Letizia loves bags and shoes, and lucky for her, the platform shoes are now more fashionable than ever.

Same with Rafa Nadal. He's only 22, has only been number 1 for a couple of weeks, and only has 5 Slams compared to other great players who have been around longer. It's not to say that he doesn't deserve it; only that the award is given prematurely.

The foundation seems to be too excited to jump on the accolade-giving bandwagon even if it isn't time yet. It's too early to judge their legacy.

Rafael Nadal won also the olympic gold medal, which is highly appreciated not only amongst the people around the world, but also amongst the tennis players, and other athletes.

Yes, an Olympic gold is important, but it's not like Spanish tennis is in such a bad state that Rafa is the only bright thing in it right now that they give the award so soon. Give him a few more years and he'll accomplish more than what he has today, and then that's when the award will truly befit him.

But everything's pointless anymore, the award's already been given to him, and apparently the FPA has a history of giving awards to athletes who are still active. I wonder though, if they will still give him that when he retires.

The Princess was really beautiful, the dress was amazing!, and what a body she has!!
Ingrid Bethancourt's words were very very touching.. very kind words for the princes too. I loved when she was talking about the prince and she said "..and his beautiful wife" and he looked at Letizia and smile at her! so sweeeeet!

The article praises princess Letizia, says that she has grown to her role very well. Naturalness is her strength.

exactly my thoughts. i expressed this earlier on in this thread, but i doubt the simple reason of having been kidnapped is enough reason to give an award to ingrid, as much as i like her. it hasn't been her choice to be kidnapped, and i doubt anything changed since her kidnapping/released regarding to the FARC. if the horrible circumstances she seemed to have
lived (that we actually don't know fully at the moment) were enough reason to give her an award, then all the other people who have been tortured, kidnapped and murdered also need to be awarded a prize. it's too early in my opinion. the panel would have had to wait for a bit longer to see how she takes her experience to an active involvement in ending or helping with the situation.

regarding ingrid betancourt: i'm sure as a past journalist, letizia must have thoroughly enjoyed speaking to ingrid. i wonder how long the two ladies met for.

coming back to the awards, the ceremony seemed great, just as every year. oviedo shines when the prince of asturias awards are approaching. it's also a good idea of the foundation that they request press meetings with all the awardees and everyone who wants (and is there early enough) can attend. letizia looked great (she seems to always look great when she is in oviedo, i wonder why! must be an inspiring place for her) and i'm glad the queen attends the prizes every year religiously.

i saw a picture of letizia's mum in the ceremony. her face seemed to look different (much younger). maybe a tip from letizia?

another gallery of pictures can be found here from LNE.

speeches of some of the awardees can be found here.
