It's been incredibly emotional, I agree!! I'm still feeling it

Her parents almost burst with pride and Grandma Paloma was crying among the public. When she said that Asturias was her mother's land and that she had Asturian blood the applause interrupted her speech! She even said a few words in English to the laureates, what a Princess

He's sitting next to his mother. On his other side I'm pretty sure I saw his wife

Princess Leonor made a beautiful speech and was very safe and happy.
This was just the beginning of her life as Princess of Asturias and there is no going back.
Leonor is beginning her royal duties at the right age and I am sure that from now on she will start appearing at more events regularly whenever her studies allow it.
This was a great moment for Leonor, his first time at such important awards and his first speech.

That moment was when I couldn't hold my two tears back. Everything was going smoothly until them, but the applause that followed that "I bear Asturian blood" and Leonor's smile was breathtaking, just beautiful.

The only one missing from the family is the Emeritus King Juan Carlos, who will be on his way to Majorca where he will attend the wedding of tennis player Rafael Nadal tomorrow, possibly together with Infanta Elena.

Her speech was phenomenal. Her delivery was terrific. I wouldn't want it any other way. She was so beautiful, beaming with hope and unwavering spirit. She sounded so clear and her demeanor was so calm and resolute.

I felt every words she said even if it was in Spanish. Her English was perfect too. Leonor


Her speech: https://twitter.com/i/status/1185249865921716225

The whole thing feels a little bit surreal though when, at the same time, Catalonia is burning and thousands are protesting on the streets of Barcelona to call for a republic.

Paloma Rocasolano could hardly contain her emotions she must be so proud as were the King,Queen,Queen Sofia and Infanta Sofia.

I did not expect to see old king Juan Carlos and more so since he his retirement from public life.

Princess Leonor did so well, the shout out to Asturias, Queen Sofia, and her confidence and big smile...she seems very well-prepared through and through. The grandmothers looking extremely proud was super sweet. Must be bittersweet, seeing her do well yet feeling the weight of responsibility on someone they all seem so protective of.

As another poster already mentioned, there were lots of protests in Oviedo (as in previous years) and especially Leonor will have to learn how to deal with hostility towards her and the institution.

In Oviedo there was only one protest, the same organized by the same groups (a mixture of republican leftist groups, anarchists, environmentalists, anti evictions) every year... and that every year is less numerous ... but it is already part of the "color" of the event.

In recent weeks there is only one problem in Asturias that generates real protests and is the labor conflict of Vesuvius company. They have not organized any protest, and the Royal Family met yesterday with two company workers who are locked in the Cathedral.

Seeing Queen Sofia's surprise and genuine delight over being mentioned by Princess Leonor was one of the highpoints of the royal year for me. I found it very moving.

Yes ,queen Sofia looked as though she was not expecting that and has obviously made quite an impact on her granddaughters life.

leonor did great today. except some minor hiccups in her speech, the rest went smoothly. i am sure letizia made sure she rehearsed it enough to sound as she should. her diction was very clear and she was very calm, for what must be a nerve wracking moment for a child. her english is very impressive - i assume she has a private tutor because her diction is really perfect. the content of the speech itself was very heartfelt and personal - a good move overall, despite the fact that timing for this seems most awkward given the demonstrations happening in catalonia.

I am really looking forward to the events tomorrow. Today was the solemn part and obviously Leonor had to go through the hard moment of having her first speech on that impressive place, but after doing it I hope she can enjoy tomorrow the most relaxed part of the events and will have a more informal speech at the exemplary town award delivery. I am pretty sure she will do great there.

It is right, just one group of radicals that protest every year. Asturias loves the SRF. Queen Letizia is from Asturias.
