One of the most emotional moments of the ceremony was when survivors of the Nazi holocaust came to the stage

The 27th edition of the Prince of Asturias Awards, held in Oviedo tonight, was an emotional event.

The Prince of Asturias, Don Felipe, called for everyone to work together for a more cohesive Spain, which he described as ‘this grand company’. He called for a society which was ever more solid and based around the principles and values of the Constitution, and as heir to the throne, he promised all of his efforts to that end.

He described the prize winners this year as an example of how people with differences can live together, and that their diversity was ‘a source of mutual enrichment’.

The winners represented the fight for fundamental rights, especially for the lives and dignity of people. "They are the defenders of freedom and democratic values" said the Prince.

Don Felipe had special words for the winner of the Award for Cooperation this year, Al Gore.

He said the award was in recognition for his action to preserve the environment, and to
broadcast his concerns that climate change is one of the main threats to mankind, and that
we must fight it with rigour and urgency, as well as on a global basis.

In his acceptance speech, Al Gore warned that ‘political will is a renewable resource’.

‘We have to have the moral courage to act, to choose the future in which we want
to live’, he said
