King Felipe, Queen Letizia, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia hosted the Princess of Asturias Awards on Friday in a scaled-back ceremony because of the pandemic.
The awards, named for the heir to the Spanish throne, are one of the most impotant events in the royal calendar every year. Princes Leonor is the Princess of Asturias.
Queen Sofia usually attends the awards and was on hand during this weekend’s festivities at the Hotel de la Reconquista in the Spanish community of Asturias.
Among the winners this year were the men and women who collectively responded to the coronavirus pandemic.
Royals then visited the Asturian town of Somao to award the community for its efforts at promoting progress and coexistence.
