Children from Belgrade international schools, together with their teachers, this year as well have joined the charity campaign “Children helping children”, which HRH Crown Princess Katherine started a long time ago. This project was started with Her Royal Highness’s persistence to teach children at their early age the importance of “The Joy of Giving” and encourage them to bring their gifts to the Palace, to be given to the orphans in need for the forthcoming Christmas holidays.

As part of the educational and joyful visits to the Royal Palace today, the students had a chance to have a tour of the home of the Royal family of Serbia and were greeted by HRH Crown Princess Katherine. The visits from the schools will continue in the following days.

They also had the opportunity to learn interesting facts about the history of the Royal family of Serbia and the Royal Complex. The pupils brought gifts to the Palace, happy knowing that they will be delivered at traditional Christmas receptions at the White Palace on 5 January 2024. Their Royal Highnesses every year welcome and bring joy to over one thousand orphans, children with difficulties in intellectual development, and socially vulnerable children at these holiday receptions.

Crown Prince and Crown Princess are grateful for the support of the pupils and schools that generously joined the initiative to bring joy to the children in need: Brook Hill International School, the British International School of Belgrade, the International School of Belgrade, PRIMA International School, Russian School, Rudjer Boskovic International School, the German School in Belgrade, and the French School in Belgrade.

Her Royal Highnesses besides greeting the children also spent time with them and talked about the importance of the joy giving, and the children were very excited to meet in person a real Princess.

“I am so proud and grateful to all the wonderful children from international schools in Belgrade, and to their teachers and schools, who supported our charity project “Children helping children”. Although being so young, these children have shown that they have the awareness and compassion to help their peers in need and bring the most precious gift our orphans can receive – and the knowledge that they are loved and not been forgotten.

I strongly believe children should learn “The Joy of Giving” from an early age, like I was taught by my parents, who were a great example for me, and the best way for them to learn it is through their own involvement. By doing so at their young age, they will become caring people when they grow up”, stated HRH Crown Princess Katherine.
