Taking some advice from dad. The Princess was spotted chatting with her father at the event.
The Princess made a speech — and spoke in Catalan and Spanish.
“I am very happy to return to Catalonia, to Barcelona, where almost two years ago, I was able to get to know the important work that the Foundation does. Now, when young people need to be heard more than ever, the work of the Foundation is even more relevant. If providing opportunities to the younger generations is a duty that always compromises any society, the pandemic and its consequences make it even more necessary. So, I want to thank everyone who works on it and those who enthusiastically support it. Also to those who with their commitment and dedication make it possible to discover and enhance all the talent of youth," she said.
She continued, "Catalonia has always been a benchmark in initiative, creativity and entrepreneurship. Especially among young people, who represent these qualities and, as we have seen this afternoon, are the key to our progress. And for me, as Princess of Girona, it is a source of pride to see how our Foundation advances year after year in its work for these goals. And see how it consolidates itself as a real guide for those of us who are beginning our journey."
"The spirit of our Foundation is born from the union of energies between different generations that, together, form our society and seek the progress of all. It is born from the experience, the work and the advice of those who precede us. And it is also born from the illusion, responsibility and commitment of young people. In the toughest moments of the pandemic, that commitment was demonstrated. We saw many young people from all over Spain helping children with homework, shopping for their elderly neighbors, calling on the phone to accompany sick and lonely people, writing letters to those who were in the ICU, raising funds to buy medical supplies and even 3D print it. The images we have seen show that many collaborated and continue to do so as much as they could. They are samples of generosity that reflect that responsibility and their commitment to the present," she added.
