Iselen posted some photos and commentary on Bits but we have pulled this out so people don’t miss it. The Princess of Girona ceremony included both 2020 and 2021 winners, so there’s a lot to catch up on.
The entire Spanish royal family met with “Princesa de Girona” Laureates at Palauet Albeniz before the official ceremonies. Letizia is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress, Princess Leonor a Mango dress with Pretty Ballerinas, and Infanta Sofia is sporting a Springfield dress with Carolina Herrera ballerinas. Sofia’s topknot is killing me.
The Princess of Asturias gave her speech and holy cow can you see adult Leonor coming through here. She seems much more confident, but two years of maturity will do that for you. According to Iselen, when Leonor returned to her seat Sofia squeezed her hand in support, which gives me all sorts of feelings. Sister support is a great thing.
The family represented well at the ceremony itself. Queen Letizia wore her Nina Ricci dress, Leonor’s dress was from Bgo & Me, her shoes from Mathildas Bailarinas, while Infanta Sofía wore Sphera and Pretty Ballerinas.
Of course, the King was there, as well, in his usual impeccably tailored suit. Let us know your thoughts on this year’s combined ceremony.
