For Whom does the prince send the sapphires and why?


The Happy Prince sends sapphire to a young girl and a writer.

The young writer was trying to finish a play but he couldn't because he needed money to buy firewood which would keep him warm. Therefore, the Prince sent sapphire to him so that he could sell it to the jeweller to buy firewood and finish his play.

The Happy Prince sent another sapphire to the little matchgirl who was standing in the square just below him. Her matches had fallen in the gutter because of which they were all spoiled. He knew that her father would beat her if she did not bring home some money.
