The ceremony of delivery of the Princess of Asturias Awards, which is being held today at 6.30 pm at the Campoamor Theater, will gather this afternoon in Oviedo a remarkable list of political and institutional representatives, as well as personalities from various fields. The Vice President of the Government, Carmen Calvo, and up to four ministers head the list of guests to the ceremony, which will preside over the Kings.
The guests and the Kings are arriving at the Theater in the middle of a great expectation:
Three of the four ministers have a long relationship with the Princess of Asturias Foundation. Pedro Duque, Minister of Science, Innovation and Universities, was awarded along with three other astronauts with the International Cooperation Award in 1999. For his part, Teresa Ribera, Minister of Ecological Transition, and Josep Borrell, Minister of Foreign Affairs, were sworn in in this edition of the awards, as well as Duque. In addition to this short list, the María Luisa Carcedo, Minister of Health, Consumption and Social Welfare, will attend the ceremony.
Other prominent political representatives are the leaders of the Spanish right, Pablo Casado (president of the PP) and Albert Rivera (president of Citizens). They will also come Ana Pastor, president of the Congress of Deputies, and the presidents of Galicia (Alberto Nuñez Feijoo) and Cantabria (Miguel Ángel Revilla). Of the other guests, the presence of Mario Vargas Llosa, who is married to Isabel Preysler, and of Lars Heikensten, director of the Nobel Foundation, stands out.
