Princess Leonor of Spain, who studied at ‘Hippie Hogwarts’ in Wales, was accompanied by her parents King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain, as well as her younger sister, when she greeted the winners of the Princess of Asturias Award on Friday.
The Spanish royal family met the victors at the Reconquista Hotel in Oviedo, in the Principality of Asturias in the north of the country.
Letizia, 49, looked quintessentially stylish, donning a recycled Hugo Boss dress for the occasion, which she first wore in 2019 at an event to mark World Rare Diseases Day.
The frugal queen last wore the dress in May this year, when she chaired an event on female leadership in the workplace in Madrid.
Following in her mother’s stylish footsteps, Leonor, who has returned to Spain for half a year, looked effortlessly stylish in a blue cap-sleeved dress, before changing into a patterned monochromatic dress later in the evening.
Queen Letizia of Spain was joined on Friday by her daughters, Princesses Leonor and Sofia, as they greeted the winners of the Princess of Asturias Award at the Reconquista Hotel in Oviedo.

Wearing her blond hair down in a wavy blow-dry, Leonor paired her lesser-known dress with nude heels.
The teen opted for little makeup, added just a splash of eyeshadow and mascara, and donned a protective face amid Covid-19.
The 15-year-old heir to the throne has been studying at UWC Atlantic College in Wales since September, but went home for a week’s rest with her loved ones mid-term, and classes resumed on November 1.
Meanwhile, her younger sister Princess Sofia, 14, wore a flowy pink dress that she paired with black pumps.

It comes a day after the Spanish royal family attended the Princess of Asturias Award traditional concert at Principe Felipe’s auditorium in Oviedo.
The event traditionally takes place on the eve of the Princess of Asturias Award, but was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Sharing his name with Leonor, the heir to the Spanish throne and the title of Princess of Asturias, the annual awards are presented to individuals or organizations for outstanding achievements in the fields of science, humanities and public affairs.
The Princess of Asturias Awards was founded in 1980 by Felipe, who was then heir apparent, before taking the throne in 2014.
The event was created to consolidate the ties between the Principality of Asturias and the King and to encourage scientific, cultural and humanistic development.
Each year, the recipients of the awards receive a sculpture made by the prestigious Spanish sculptor Joan Miró.
