Lula, what would we do without you and your knowledge of simply everything?:)
And Covadonga monastery is a really nice place, it looks as it was taken from a fairy-tale:)

I ofcourse did not think they would bring Leonor to the act (not the singing contest and deffently not the meeting )
But are the Basilica not in the same city as the hotel, is there no chance they would make a seperate visit to the Basilica with Leonor when they are in town so to speak. The Basilica is beautiful, thanks for the pics

They are not in the same city, the Hotel is in Oviedo, and the Basilica of Covadonga to 1 hour of distance in car approximately. The Basilica is more near the house of the grandmother of Letizia in Sardeu.
The bishop has said that he does not have information.
Perhaps they wait and they take Leonor to Covadonga after going to Atocha.

They have never taken Leonor to an act, and not if they will take her to this trip. For if there is confusion I am going to clarify a thing. The chapel or lounge Covadonga of the Hotel of the Reconquest, it is not Covadonga's Basilica, they are two different things. The Hotel was a former hospice for children and had a chapel today turned into lounge , and which have been called Covadonga.
What was the event?? I'm lost Does it has something to do with the Eurovision songfestival

Hello, Princess Robjin! It's confusing, when you're not able to read the articles in its original language, isn't it? Well, let me try to explain.

Eurovision is simply the association of all the public broadcasters in Europe. The event Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia are to attent next April 19th, in Oviedo, is the inauguration of XII Congress of this Association (Eurovision).

It has nothing to do with the famous song contest.

That's a beautiful basilica. It looks like the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland. Can you get married there? Perhaps they should've chosen this instead of the Almudena in Madrid.

Unfortunately, the Prince was forced to marry in Madrid, and almost obliged to marry in the Almudena because it was the new cathedral of the city and somehow they had reserved it for him. But I believe that many Spanish agree in that the Almudena is the ugliest cathedral of Spain; there are hundreds of cathedrals and churches much nicer .:(
The people can marry in Covadonga, in Asturias is a very traditional place to marry; for the meaning of the Virgin and because and it is a wonderful place surrounded with nature and mountains.

Acording to the agenda in www.casareal.es, Prince Felipe will preside the inauguration of the assembly, so I deduce that Princess Letizia will not be there:(

It seems that they have got confused on having placed the news, and they have put the presidency of the Prince but they have not put the presence of the Princess. If you search in "activities" and searches the acts of the Princess the act appears.

Besides in the web of the Foundation they continue announcing the presence of both.

http://www.fundacionprincipedeasturi...oticia508.html

T.R.H. the Prince and Princess of Asturias are to chair the inauguration ceremony of the XII Assembly of the European Broadcasting Union, Eurovision, which will be held on the 19th, 20th and 21st April in Oviedo, coinciding with UNESCO-backed events to celebrate the XXV Anniversary of the Prince of Asturias Awards. The ceremony will be held on Wednesday, 19th April, starting at 8.00 p.m. in the Chapel of the Hotel de la Reconquista.

Don Felipe, Caffarel and Réveillon will open TV's summit
The Princes only will remain a few hours in Oviedo for the assembly of Eurovision.

Everything is to point in order that Asturias turns into the world capital of the television, at least for three days. The words of the prince Felipe, accompanied by Dona Letizia in the presidency of the act, will open the annual assembly of the Association of Public European Televisions (Eurovision), in which executives will take part of more than 150 chains of a hundred of countries, and that Prince of Asturias places in the Anniversary XXV of the Prizes.

The official act of inauguration will be celebrated at 20.00 hours in the Hotel of the Reconquest and Jean Réveillon will possess the interventions of the director of Spanish Broadcast television, Carmen Caffarel, the secretary general of the European Union of Broadcast television (UER), and the Prince of Asturias will close.

In the inauguration, which foresees that it lasts little less than one hour, also Prince of Asturias will offer a video to the representatives of the European televisions, of the North of Africa and of Close East with images of the Prizes.
To the expectation of the own summit there adds the visit of the Princes of Asturias, the first one that they realize after the birth of the infanta Leonor. The last image of Don Felipe and Dona Letizia together in the region was dated in August of last year, in Sardéu, in a visit to her grandmother, a few months after they were inaugurating the acts of the anniversary of the awards with Stephen Hawking's conference.

In the first moment one shuffled that they were coming with the small Leonor to fulfill the promise to present it before the Vírgen de Covadonga, but it will be left for another occasion. Sources of the Zarzuela indicated yesterday that only they assistance is contemplated to one act: the assembly of Eurovision. The visit will be of a few hours, since there is foreseen that they return on the same night to Madrid. The Princes have on the following day a food with representatives of the world of the letters inside the acts of the delivery of the Prize Cervantes.

Besides 72 members of the UER of 52 countries, in the meeting other 49 will take part closely of a treintena of States. For two days, the representatives of Eurovision will develop days of work in those that they will approach, between other topics, Hihg Definition's television and the incorporation of the new technologies. Also workshops will be celebrated on the television cultural programming, the Cup of the World 2006, and the role of the TV between the youth.
