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.
I was just about to look for your earlier post that I recalled carlota. I completely agree - it seems that it has become fashionable to be seen with Ingrid and all Heads of State, presidents or royals seem to be keen to jump on that bandwaggon. I don't want to take away anything from what she went through but where is the sense in giving an award to her? The right moment for that would be when there is a legacy, something good that came out of what Ingrid had to endure - eg a helping or advising others, maybe in form of an own trust or charity. For now it's just turning the attention that currently surrounds Ingrid into advertisement or interest for the own award presentation.

i saw a picture of letizia's mum in the ceremony. her face seemed to look different (much younger). maybe a tip from letizia?
She looks like she had the same complete makeover like her daughter. No wrinkles, puffy face. Too bad we did not see Grandma Menchu. I wonder if Zarzuela's surgeon of trust had his hands on her face, too, but that would have been quite an expensive botox bill!

Age should not be a factor. Rafa has accomplished a lot at such a young age; he deserves the award.

In the first part(report) of the video, podeis to see as a lady asks the Princess helps for a committed murder 10 years ago....
In the second part(report), the princess recognizes between the multitude her former teacher of mathematics... IT IS an enterteining moment because she behaves as a small girl saying to the whole world " he is my teacher of mathematics " jajaja very nice

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.
If the condition(state) of the Spanish tennis is bad(wrong)! How there is that of other countries?!
ATPtennis.com - Noticias del tenis alrededor del mundo
It does not seem that the state of the tennis is so bad in Spain...
The prizes Prince of Asturias, not only they are granted by the sports career(race) of the winning one: also they influence his moral and human attitude...
Rafa is a boy who worries for the others and has a humble attitude ... attitude that the majority of the tennis players do not have, precisely.
Nadal, with only 22 years, has his own(proper) charitable foundation that one dedicates to the social help.
The foundation takes his name: " Foundation Rafael Nadal "

this article is quite interesting, it has some interesting anecdotes:

Con su perfil más regio. El Comercio

-it mentions mainly how into her role letizia seemed during the awards. it says that she forgot this time to curtsy the queen upon entry and that when walking to the stage, she acknowledged her mum by lowering her head (pride of a daughter, they call it). apparently ingrid betancourt had some problem when she was receiving the prize (her bra showed) and letizia managed to tell her that (i have no idea how she did it, i didn't notice, although i saw no videos). it also mentions that ingrid made reference to the princes in her speech.

I saw Letizia curtseying the Queen when she and Felipe entered the stage. I don´t remember ever seen that Letizia would curtsey the Queen outside the theater?

Does anyone know the exact prerequisites for this award? Is there any? I think that someone that accomplishes the top in his own field deserves all the recognition he can get for all the years of hard work he endured to get there -- but to be kidnapped [not what the person worked for certainly] and get the same award is baffling. Just my opinion.

Also loved the photo of Letizia's Mom and she looks fantastic for her age -- don't care what she had to do to accomplished it -- attractive woman.

If I am not mistaken, while I watched the ceremony I saw Princess Letizia curtsy twice to Queen Sofia yesterday: once on her way to the stage and once on the way out.

I want to clarifly that Dona Letizia did not forget to curtsy to Queen, it said in the article and I quote "Entró en el Campoamor del brazo de don Felipe y no olvidó su reverencia a la Reina" ...and she did not forget to curtsy to the Queen...

I think that the photographers are placed in the Campoamor Theater in such a place, that it is not possible for them to take photo of the moment, when the princess curtseys to the Queen. You can see it from the videos of Felipe and Letizia arriving to the stage.

Ah ok thanks. My internet is not up to that at the moment, but maybe I'll get back to it later.

I don't think she would ever forget to curtsy to the Queen. What struck me though when watching the videos from the entry to the theater was that most people who were greated by first Queen Sofia, then Felipe then Letizia did not curtsy at all, not even to the Queen. I'd have expected that at least the Queen would be greated in that respectful manner.
