The Victory Cross (Cruz de la Victoria) is an early 10th century Asturian jewelled cross, given by King Alfonso III of Asturias to Cathedral of San Salvador of Oviedo. It is the symbol of the Principality of Asturias.

There are also mass protests outside, thousands and thousands yelling, booing, fierce hecklings, whistle-concerts and a sea of republican flags as a "welcome" for the royal family. Some media wilfully frame it out but on EuroNews there is "No Comment" which shows newsfeeds without comment, only "Oviedo, Spain - Thursday 17 October 2019" and the unedited material shows a deafening protest when the royal family arrived. Riot police in full force. Nothing new, by the way. Anti-monarchists always are in Oviedo at this event.

Many years ago when Letizia was princess of Asturias she was presented with a replica of the Cruz de la Victoria which she has worn and will hopefully pass onto her daughter Leonor.

Princess Leonor handed the Foundation's insignia to the laureates in her first public duty as Honorary President of the Foundation. Love the photos of the young Princess interacting with everyone. According to El País both Leonor and Sofía have spent weeks preparing for this, including studying the laureates biographies.

It is impressive how they are so dedicated to their roles and take it so seriously at such young age, but I guess that is Felipe and Letizia's parenting style.

Its a taste of things to come with Leonor such dedication at a young ,then again the king her father is a rather good role model.

Leonor is almost 14 and Sofia is 12 and a half, they are grown up enough to attend this event being properly informed on what's going on. Honestly, to have read some resume of the laureates biography and achievements beforehand should be the bare minimum for anybody, I see nothing impressive or too demanding from them.

Then again, we are perhaps too acostumed to royals doing the bare minimum.

I think Leonor and Sofia are being well educated. Note that they are well prepared for the role they are beginning to play.

I think you are not giving the girls due credit. I don’t know many 13-year-olds who would spend weeks familiarizing themselves with the biographies of multiple laureates of a major international prize.

Both girls have a totally different upbringing compared to ordinary 13 year olds. Who has a governess and private tutoring, grows up bilingual and is being groomed for public service by their parents, the kings of spain?

While I think that the girls are doing very well, I also think that is to be expected when they have been trained for outings like this evening since they were born.

That was too much emotion for 5 minutes. I recognize I shed a couple of tears

Leonor did incredibly well. Nervous at the beginning, but with panache and aplomb as she kept going and really confident towards the end when she spoke directly to the laureates. It was a pleasure to listen to her and I will forever remember how I witnessed this historical moment.

PD: My biggest concern, however, were both Queen Sofia and Paloma Rocasolano, I really feared any of them could faint due to emotion in any moment Grandmothers, they are the same everywhere!

Yes Telma is present with her boyfriend. Queen Letizia's mother and grandmother are also present. I don't know if Letizia's father is present.

Leonor did great, very natural way of speaking. She was beaming the whole time. Grandma Sofia was mentioned specifically and the cameras caught her not expecting to hear her name. She was really touched.
Grandma Paloma wasn't mentioned but she sat in the auditorium almost crying.
I did not expect Sofia Jr on the podium but the way she was seated was ok, Leonor clearly taking center stage with Felipe.
Now the first major steps into public life have been done this year and there is no way back.
