3: Show case with decorations and Filippa’s Angel

Finally, a small showcase displays decorations and medals, awarded to both Princess Marianne and today’s princely couple Alexander and Gabriela for social and cultural work on a national and European level.

Princess Gabriela explains one endeavour close to her heart: “Filippa’s Angel Foundation, a charity was set up by our family to commemorate our daughter Filippa who passed away in a car accident in 2001. A few months after her death, we found her diaries and, after careful consideration, we published excerpts from them. The book “Filippa’s Angel” became a bestseller, and the foundation was established from the profits. It honours young people who are extraordinarily involved in social, ecological and cultural areas, mostly on a voluntary basis.”
