Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia receive Ecuadorian honour to mark the end of their Royal visit

7 OCTOBER 2012

As their royal trip to Panama and Ecuador drew to a close Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Spain were honoured by the Ecuadorian capital city.

On the last day of their visit, the couple were named "Distinguished Guests of the City of Quito" by Mayor Augsto Barrera.

The couple were pleased to recieve the honour, presented to them as they stood beneath the ornate domed ceiling at the Society of Jesus Church.

Felipe and Letizia left their two daughters, Leonor and Sofia, at home in Spain as they carried out their duties in the South American countries.
The pair were busy attending business assemblies, visiting museums and monasteries, as well as meeting the countries' dignitaries such as President Rafael Correa of Ecuador.

As they made their way to fly back to Spain, the Prince and Princess were greeted by members of the public.

Felipe and a radiant Letizia, who recently turned 40-years-old, waved to those who lined the streets to see them off from their successful visit.
