Luxembourg’s royal court has warned that the crown prince’s name is falsely being used to promote a purported charity event.
The lord chamberlain said in a statement on 13 November that email invitations to an event organised by the “Jean Joseph Marie Foundation” are supposedly signed by Crown Prince Guillaume.
“His royal highness, Prince Guillaume, wishes to point out that he has no connection with this foundation,” the lord chamberlain wrote.
“The Grand Ducal Court warns against the fundraising in question,” the announcement said. “The Lord Chamberlain will initiate the necessary legal proceedings.”
One page of the “Jean Joseph Marie Foundation” website said it has “helped more than 15 million refugees and displaced families in 23 countries, including the United Kingdom and United State [sic].” But on another page, contributions are solicited to “help the foundation achieve its mission to support victims of abuse and domestic violence.”
Delano sent a request for comment to the email address listed on the outfit’s website (no physical address or phone number was indicated).
