Prince Parties to Promote Peace in Mid-East
Yesterday, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco hosted a charity gala called "Paths to Peace" at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. On hand to perform was the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Lorin Maazel. The Sovereign Prince is seen above with start pianists Bishari Haroni and Itamar Golan who also displayed their talents at the event. The gala was held to raise money for the University of Jerusalem and will be used to further the "Paths to Peace" project which grants scholarships to Arab and Jewish students to attend the university and which is a joint Arab-Jewish effort. Once again we see the "celebrity" of royalty (in this case the Princely Family of Monaco) being put to good use to sponsor worthy causes.
