During his speech, King Felipe remembered the people of Palma Island who suffered by the drastic volcano eruption in September, “our eyes turn to the Canary Island of La Palma. I would like to have a very special memory – necessary, but above all very heartfelt and affectionate – for those who live there, who have suffered the tremendous volcanic eruption for a month, and who have seen their lives hit in such a dramatic way and with as much helplessness as sadness … they have asked us not to forget them and, together with all Spaniards, so it will be; we will not forget you”.

Princess Leonor of Asturias gave a very warm speech that highlighted the power of education, and the hope all laureates give the younger generation to “have the opportunity to be important and show ourselves responsible for attempting to think of a more sustainable, more just and better future for everyone.”  Leonor added, “with the memory of another award ceremony that moves and emotes us, and I will miss this land, Asturias, which I love so much and in which my sister Sofía and I always feel at home.”
