Even though Princess Leonor did not deliver remarks, the trip was billed as part of her journey toward representing the Royal Family and eventually becoming queen.

Recently King Felipe inducted her into the Order of the Golden Fleece. She also has her own standard.

Asturias is often called the birthplace of modern Spain. Christian rulers in the area launched the reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula from Islamic rule.
