On 28 May The Hereditary Prince, his fiancée Hande Macit and Duke Michael attended the 6th Edition of the Tulips Ball, held this year at the Koepelkerk in Amsterdam.
Duke Michael’s involvement with the Tulips Ball began while studying at Leiden University and he serves as a member of the Organising Committee. His mother the Duchess of Mecklenburg is a member of the Honorary Committee of Patrons.
This year the charitable ‘Prince Nicholas of Romania Association’ was supported. The charity’s founder Nicholas de Roumanie, the grandson of the late King Mihai of Romania, was in attendance as the guest of honour. Nicholas de Roumanie is descended from the House of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, although he is most closely related to the Grand Ducal Family via their shared descent from Duke Carlo III of Parma.
At the ball over €10,000 were raised. The funds will be used to combat deforestation in Romania and to provide assistance to Ukrainian refugees in Romania.
