An article about the Duchess of Alba receiving the award.
Google translation.

Apparently, it was a lifetime achievement award, honouring the Duchess's ties with Seville. Judging by the comments at the end of the article, she is well loved there.

Doña Ana de Medina y Fernández de Córdoba, Countess of Ofalia and Marchiones of Navahermosa, passed away on 7 March 2012, after a long illness, aged 71.

She was born at Sevilla on 2 May 1940, the eldest child and only daughter of Don Rafael de Medina y Villalonga and his wife Doña Victoria Eugenia Fernandez de Cordoba y Fernandez de Henestrosa, (since 1956) 18th Duchess of Mendinaceli.
She married firstly in 1961 to Prince Max Emanuel zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg, with whom she had three children. They divorced in 1985, and in the same year she married to Don Jaime de Urzaiz y Fernández del Castillo; this second wedding also ended in divorce.
She is survived by her three children Princes Marco, Pablo and Flavia zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg, seven grandchildren, her mother the Duchess of Medinaceli, her brother Ignacio, Duke of Segorbe, her sisters-in-law and many nephews and nieces.

Since 2005 she was the heiress to her mother's titles; now the heir to the Dukedom of Medinaceli is Ana's eldest son Prince Marco zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg.

Yesterday, April 9, the Duchess of Alba and her husband attended the 'Orange and Lemon' Awards in Madrid
- the prizes are awarded to the nicest celebrity and the most unpleasant one in Spain every year.

I suppose the Duchess of Alba paid the visit on occasion of the birthday of the Duchess of Medinaceli, who turned 95 the previous day (16 April).

Thanks for the photos!
I have to say that the Duchess of Alba looked lovely in a red outfit. Despite her age, her hands have got a delicately feminine shape.
