1. My top vote of the week goes to a truly landmark moment: the Princess of Asturias received the insignia of the Order of the Golden Fleece on Tuesday from her father, King Felipe VI of Spain, on his 50th birthday. Leonor becomes only the second Spanish royal woman (after Queen Isabella II, who was painted wearing the Fleece necklet) ever to be made a member of the order; she also joins Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, and Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands as only the fourth living female member. The collar she received belonged to her great-grandfather, the Count of Barcelona.
