Prince Félix Hosts "French Legends", Launches 'Cuvée Amalia'

Prince Félix and presumably Princess Claire (she might even be the person half hidden in the picture above) hosted the "French Legends", a group of former French professional rugby players coming together for charitable causes, at their Château les Crostes to benefit the organisation Le sourire de Lucie last night. Lucie, who celebrated her 20th birthday this weekend, suffers from Larsen syndrome, which is "a rare genetic disorder that has been associated with a wide variety of different symptoms. Characteristic findings of the disorder include dislocations of the large joints, skeletal malformations, and distinctive facial and limb features."

The "French Legends", led by former French rugby union international Serge Betsen, were joined by rugby players from RC Toulon as well as local handball professionals for the evening. To raise money for Le sourire de Lucie, jerseys and other memorabilia were auction off. Also to benefit the charity, the Château les Crostes officially launched the new Cuvée Amalia, named for the baby daughter of Prince Félix and Princess Claire. One euro and fifty cents of every bottle sold of the rosé wine will go to support Le sourire de Lucie.
