A CURIOUS CHARITY AUCTION AND A SPECIAL GUIDED TOUR

The journalist and historian Stéphane Bern, who is renowned in France, generously supported the work of the French Delegation of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy by offering an exclusive tour of his residence.

During a charity auction organised by the French Delegation of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, one item stood out for its originality and appeal. It was offered by the well-known journalist, historian and television presenter, Stéphane Bern.

It consisted of a private visit to the Royal and Military College of Thiron-Gardais, near Chartres.

The visit was for a group of four people, personally guided by Mr Bern himself, who owns the place.

In the midst of the excitement, two supporters of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy managed to secure the opportunity. Their aim was to extend this possibility to the Rev. Father Franck Certin, Commander of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus and Honorary Prior of the French Delegation.

The long-awaited visit finally took place on Monday 30 October 2023.

As he had promised, Stéphane Bern himself warmly welcomed the group of visitors and guided them around the Royal and Military College of Thiron-Gardais. The tour focused in particular on its fascinating museum, which illustrates the daily life of cadets-gentlemen of King Louis XVI.

This simple but effective initiative turned a guided tour into an act of charity, allowing us to do good while exploring history.

The charity work of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy in France will continue with a gala evening and auction to be held on Friday 15 December 2023 at the Cercle de l’Union Interalliée in Paris.

The evening will be graced by the presence of TT.RR.HH. the Princes of Piedmont and Venice, Emanuele Filiberto and Clotilde of Savoy, as well as their eldest daughter, H.R.H. the Princess of Carignano, Vittoria.
