The Prince of Asturias transmitted today the 'support and encouragement of the Crown' to the inhabitants of Menorca, in achieving a greater progress and well being. With these words, Don Felipe, along with Doña Letizia, started his visit to Menorca; an island of 'noble people, interested in preserving its identity, and that constitutes an exceptional example of historical fidelity to its own secular memory and its traditions'.
Hundreds of people applauded on the street the arrival of the Princes at the Hall of Menorca. The Prince praised the dedication of the Menorquins to preserve and protect the delicate balance of an island for which his grandfather (Don Juan) and his father (the King) always felt a special affection that they have transmitted to him, remembered the Prince in Catalan.
