King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain watched on with smiles as their daughter Princess Leonor of Spain handed out awards at an event with her family this evening.

The teenage princess, 13, was also joined by her younger sister Sofia, 12, at her namesake awards, the Princess of Asturias Awards, in Oviedo, Northern Spain. 

Sharing its name with Leonor, who is heir to the Spanish throne and holds the title of Princess of Asturias, the annual awards are presented to individuals or organisations who make notable achievements in the sciences, humanities, and public affairs.

Leonor beamed as she stood side-by-side with Queen Letizia, 46, and King Felipe, 51, this evening, and looked delighted as she handed out awards to winners.
