Today, King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain were in Barcelona to attend the events marking the 10th anniversary of Princess of Girona Foundation. They were joined by their daughters Leonor, Princess of Asturias and Infanta Sofia for the first time at Princess Girona Foundation events.
The Princess Girona Foundation (FPdGi) is a private foundation, established by civil society of Girona in 2009 and promoted by 88 top-level employers. Its Honorary Presidency is held by the King of Spain Felipe, on behalf of his daughter the Princess of Asturias and Girona. The foundation aims to be a reference at the state level in supporting young people in their professional and personal development, placing a special interest in the detection of talented young people who serve as contemporary references to other young people (FPdGi Awards), the launch of programs for the improvement of employability (Talent Rescuers Program) and educational innovation in the training of trainers (Educate Entrepreneurial Talent). In 2019, FPdGi will allocate 2.8 million Euros to programs for the benefit of young people.

As part of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the FPdGi, today “Talent attracts talent” is also celebrated, with a program having activities that revolve around some of the main challenges of our society: sustainability, employment, critical thinking or equal opportunities, among others. The program began with the plenary session “Generations on Stage: Experience and value” in which members of the Board of Trustees of the FPdGi talked with some of the winners and with young participants in other programs of the Foundation.
Now to What Letizia Wore – once again keeping her style choices minimal on her daughter’s debut at the Foundation events, Queen Letizia brought back a familiar look.
