Royals Gather for ‘Rights of the Child’

It’s not often we see royalty from several countries together in one place. When it’s for a good cause, it’s even more of a good thing.

Last week, ladies from several European royal families attended a conference for the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The convention, which aims to protect the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of children, was signed on November 20, 1989.
