During the various events held on Sunday and Monday by Princess Leonor, whether at the Dalí Theater-Museum in Figueres with her sister or at the Albéniz Palace with her parents, in the presence of young recipients of her foundation’s prize, the Princess of Asturias made a strong impression with his poise and ease.
