Prince Robert assists in raising money for charity

Prince Robert has assisted in raising $250,000 for the charity Grapes of Humanity. The funds raised at this particular event will go to The Viola Wheeler Music Program for disabled children and to the Les Climats du Coeur which feeds the hungry in Beaune, France.

For those of you who are unaware of who Prince Robert of Luxembourg is I offer this information. Prince Robert is the only son of the late Prince Charles of Luxembourg and his American wife Joan Douglas Dillion (now Duchess de Mouchy). Prince Charles was the son of Grand Duchess Charlotte and Prince Felix. Therefore, Prince Robert is the nephew of Grand Duke Jean and the first cousin of Grand Duke Henri. He has one sibling, Princess Charlotte of Luxembourg who is now married and living in the UK. He is married to Princess Julie of Nassau (nee Ongaro) and has 3 children all of whom are styled HRH Prince/ss of Nassau. Some of you will recall that that the wife and children of Prince Robert were upgraded to Count/ess of Nassau and later Prince/ss of Nassau at the same time as the family of Prince Jean.
