If I am not wrong, her mother was member of this jury some years ago.

That's correct! Caroline was a member of the jury in 2015, when the festival celebrated its 30th anniversary, see here

I have no problem with rich people discussing poverty or doing something positive to alleviate it. Rather that than doing nothing and just living the life of a dilettante.

I also really don't understand why/if/what the problem is with people drinking while she talks. Personally, I can drink and listen at the same time.

I agree with your opinion on drinking while listening.

I do agree with fortimo on the idea of a charity gala dinner to fight poverty. These two don't go well together. Actually doing something is something different and can be done without dressing in rags etc but they weren't actually doing something. They were just enjoying a fun night out (probably feeling good because they were 'fighting poverty'. A far larger donation could have been made had it not been necessary to spend so much money on the gala dinner itself.

So, while I understand why it is done (to raise money), it remains very contradictory.

I understand that they are uneasy bedfellows but humans being what they are I think these galas raise more money than if people were just asked to dig deeper into their pockets. People have fun and money is raised at the same time. After all, the galas are more about raising profiles, finding sponsors etc, and they aren't the only source of income generation.

Yes, I understand it raises more money than just asking them to donate but just the thought of 'let's organize a very lavish party for the rich' so we can help the 'extreme poor' be a little less poor somewhat (and in return feel good about ourselves) surely is effective but extremely poor taste imo.

Why not organize a less lavish event in which they actually mingle with the people they say to want to help; making connections with the extreme poor and offering your connections/using your network for their benefit would be a great way for some to 'overcome extreme poverty'. (and of course, some of the attendees might do that as well, so that is to be applauded but doesn't excuse this type of event)

Or even organize a well-catered congress in which working groups discuss actions to be taken and actively follow-up on that; but maybe they need money to do so, and those who are willing to donate when they are entertained wouldn't be willing to support the same cause without their private fun and prestige of being seen at such an event - which again would show that it is not about the goal at all.

On a royal note; has Charlotte shown interest in this specific theme before? I.e., is she actively involved in some way regarding the topic of poverty alleviation?

The Countess du Boisrouvay is both her godmother and a cousin of Prince Rainier. The charity is named in honor of the Countess's only child...a remarkable young man who died tragically in an accident the year before Charlotte was born.

After the death of her son Albina du Boisrouvay sold off all her jewels and most of her personal fortune and started this project.

Charlotte is close to her godmother and always attends this event in support.

Any different then any other royal? Like Prince William hosting a gala at Kensington palace for Centre point? No one blinks an eye when star studded events with major performers and tuxedos is hosted to raise money for a homeless shelter in London.

Should no royals help the homeless since none know what it is to be poor???

The charity does plenty of events and activities with the people they help.

The reality is though that the charity is not funded by the charity workers. It is funded by big wallet donors. And some of them may actually have little interest in the actual work. Splash out on lavish parties, yachts and holidays is a part of their life. A charity combining a lavish party and a charity fundraiser gets them to attend. Ask them to make a 50,000 donation and invite them to a sit down lunch at a homeless shelter? Few people would attend. Ask them for $50,000 a seat to attend a lavish party with their friends and such, sounds like a good night out.

Charities know they need to bring in the donors. It may seem out of place to some, but in the end it brings in more money for charity, and all wins.

Its similar to "big change'. Why do the big triathalons and other expensive challenges, why not just donate? Because if they get to have fun, and have an 'experience' certain donors are more willing to donate.

These aren't your every day Joe and Jane donating.

Beyond helping people in AIDS affected areas, the charity has other goals. FXB foundation does work in Europe as well. It founded pallative care hospitals in France and Switzerland. And a helicopter rescue program in Switzerland. The latter of which is inspired even more by the son of the founder, who inspired the creation of the charity. He was a rescue helicopter pilot who died while serving as a pilot during the Dakar race.

The founder Albina is her godmother. Albina was a cousin of Rainier III on the Polignac side. Her mother was the daughter of Simon Patino, a Bolivian industrialist who was once one of the richest men in the world.

Charlotte sits on the board of directors for the charity.

Princess Astrid of Belgium is also a known supporter. She has been seen with Charlotte at the events the past few years.

Well, if true, I completely understand his wish for stability for Raphael - and would say that this lifestyle is undesirable for any child -. Nonetheless, all of this could have been avoided had the two of them first figured out whether they wanted to be together for life, get married, have a child and stay together. In the end, Raphael's constant moving is caused by them no longer being a family unit.

Charlotte looks gorgeous in the photos with Gad. She’s such a natural beauty on the voici cover. Anyone else call her the hairstyle queen whenever she puts her hair up like that?
