Was rather confused when I received a letter from France today but when I realised it was another reply from Empress Farah Pahlavi (who also lives in Paris, I believe), I was very excited. I was even more excited when I opened the letter and found out that it was an actual reply from Her Imperial Majesty herself! It's remarkable how quick the response was, seeing as how my message would need to go from the UK to the US and then to France and from France back to the UK, and also seeing as how I still haven't got some replies from others in Europe.

I wait several weeks for letters to come, then three come at once! Received a reply from: the office of the Prince of Asturias, thanking me for birthday card; the palace of Brussels, thanking me for Prince Amedeo's birthday card and from the Duke of Bavaria himself, including a photo, as requested. (I really like the Spanish envelope with lots of stamps on it.)

Pretty neat, but I have to warn you if you send messages to people who aren't your friends on facebook it'll go into your "other" folder in your inbox. I'd be a lot further in my genealogical research if people would check their "other" folders more.

You can actually now pay 1 dollar to make your message go into their regular messaging section But I'm not going to do that. I actually added Nicholas as a friend and he accepted, which is pretty cool but he didn't reply to my message.

An envelope marked with 'Generalverwaltung des vormals regierenden Preussischen Königshauses' or 'the general administation of the previously ruling Prussian royal house' arrived today. Inside was a signed photo of Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie of Prussia. (Needless to say, I am pleased).
I'm not sure whether this is a reply to a letter I sent or to an e-mail I sent. I sent a letter to Georg Friedrich at Hohenzollern castle but then I also sent an e-mail to berlin@preussen.de requesting a photo. Either way, I got a reply.

The websites of both branches of the Bourbon Two Sicilies royal house list their contact information: Contact « Sito ufficiale della Real Casa di Borbone delle Due Sicilie | Official site of the Royal House of Bourbon Two Sicilies | le site officiel de la Maison Royale de Bourbon des Deux Siciles | sitio oficial de la Casa Real de Borbón de las Dos or Contact

So for the Italian family it's:
Via Sistina, 121
00187 Rome
Italy

And for the Spanish family it's:
Asociación Española de Fundaciones,
General Castaños, 4-4ª
28004 Madrid
Spain

I sent an e-mail to both asking nicely for a photo so we'll see what happens.

Have already sent emails and letters to both, got nothing in return.

Even contacted each's Order of St George in the USA months ago via email, neither has responded.

When did you send these e-mails and letters? Because it can take months. I wrote mine in English but maybe they only respond to messages written in their own languages. Who knows? Some places just don't reply...

No I'm afraid I haven't. Would the Zarzuela address not work for them?

Cheers carlota!


A response from 50A ch. du Vieux-Vesenaz, CH-1222 Vesenaz GE arrived today. I sent a letter to Emmanuele Filiberto and Clotilde. I can't remember whether I asked for a photo but I got one anyway! It's nice that it's personalised (the white square is where I covered my name).

I sent the letters well over a year ago.
Emails were sent after the Act of Reconciliation.

Oh well, don't give up hope. Maybe there are some charities that members of the family are involved in, that have an address? I just found a UK contact address for the Constantinian order (Contact - Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George - Delegation for Great Britain and Ireland) :

12 Queen’s Gate Gardens
London SW7 5LY
United Kingdom

You can also send an e-mail via that website.

No I don't think so as far as I'm aware that's only for post for the King/Queen,Prince/Princess/children & Infantas Elena/Cristina.

If not, perhaps it's worth contacting them through any organisations they're involved in. For example, Infanta Margarita created the Fundación Cultural Duques de Soria and the address for that is:

Convento de la Merced.
C/ Santo Tomé, 6
42004 Soria
