This weekend, while many were focused on Berkshire, the wedding and the royals there, other royals were in France for the Cannes Film Festival. Princess Beatrice and her mother, Sarah Ferguson, along with Jordan’s Queen Rania attended the Diesel’s Child At Heart collection event.
The three ladies were the headline names at the fashion show and auction; this was a collaboration with the Fashion for Relief charity. All proceeds from the auction went to Save the Children.
Royalty and members of the fashion world’s elite such as Kate Moss, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Naomi Campbell and Natalia Vodianova mingled. Also present was former BHS owner, Sir Philip Green who attended the event with his wife, Tina and daughter, Chloe.
During the event, Queen Rania was presented with a humanitarian award from Fashion for Relief.
There were over 500 guests at the gala event. Naomi Campbell is the spokeswoman and founder of Fashion for Relief. During her remarks, Queen Rania thanked the audience for coming together for Save the Children. She said that Jordanians “are on the front lines” of the Syrian refugee crisis where “1 in 7 amongst us is a Syrian refugee.”
She told the audience that Syrian children under age six know nothing but “war, trauma and devastation.” However, despite all this tragedy, there are those around the world working to address this refugee crisis. She said: “Amid tragedy and loss, we see passionate people working together to deliver solutions.”
She wrote on social media afterwards: “Humbled to receive a humanitarian award from Fashion for Relief, which is supporting Save the Children’s Every Last Child Campaign this year.”
While Princess Beatrice and her mother did their bit for charity, Princess Eugenie, along with the Cambridges and Prince Harry, attended what was named the wedding of the year by many for its elaborate and ostentatious reception and guest list. Prince George and Princess Charlotte were adorable as page boy and flower girl, respectively, and their mother served as her sister’s as unofficial matron of honour.
