On Sunday, Princess Leonor, 16, and Infanta Sofia, 15, went alone to the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, where an event organized by the Princess of Girona Foundation (FPdGi) was taking place. The event took place in Figueras, 30 km from Girona, a city in which the royal family is not welcome, since the Catalan independence mayor took over the town hall.
The heiress to the throne, among her many titles, notably bears that of Princess of Asturias and that of Princess of Girona. Two foundations exist in the name of these titles. The two foundations award prizes throughout the year, an opportunity for Leonor to get involved publicly during the award ceremonies.
