About two hundred monarchists had attended the ceremony that counted on the presence of the mayor of Lisbon, Carmona Rodrigues, of the Duke of Bragança, Duarte Pio, and of the president of the Royal Association of Lisbon, Ricardo D'Abranches.
"The people of Lisbon were reconciled today with their memory, by remembering two patriots, who died at this place, 98 years ago", said D. Duarte, adding that the homage "was fair and symbolic".
Carmona Rodrigues, on the other hand, commented that "the fair homage was finally made" and this is "a moment of great importance for the history of Lisbon and Portugal".

that is all tru but i was just saying that, in my opinion, he could better explain his view of democracy, and the monarchy, which basicly is a constatutional monarchy. i think that in his interviews he should make it clearer the fact that it is not absalute, but that the people are repersented, and can pick andvote for those they want to repersent them. but gettin away from getting to political here, it is true what you said about the prosperity in Sweden and finland, and i feel that he does use that idea a bit losely, and not use more the arrgument that he has used in the past but not as much of the problems between PM and President. But right now the portuguese have to start helping them selves, and do like he said, and think more logicly, i dont live in portugal, yet, but watch the news on rtpi and sic almost everyday and i can see were he means about not thinking logicly. i saw the report on sic noticias, and both D.Duarte, and Carmona Rodrigues soke very well, only one thing iv notice you dont hear D. Isabel speak much, well at lest i haven't.

I guess, as consort, she's not supposed to talk very much, when she's along with her husband. But actually, she has given many interviews. In fact she's the great responsible for opening the royal family to the media, by means of photo shoots, interviews, etc. (just see the previous pages of this thread), which we were not able to see before the marriage at all. Because of that, the more traditional sectors of monarchists don't see the Duchess with very good eyes... they don't approve very much the idea of having the royal family on the covers of magazines and tabloids like "Tal&Qual", "24Horas" or "O Diabo"...

Here are some old photos of the Duke's childhood, back in 1957, with his parents and brothers. From GettyImage:

I can clearly see where the Duke gets his strong family valuse. The Duke's father seemed to have been a very devoted father, and his mother also, I think you can see alot of that in D. Duarte. I also have a question i have been looking around but havent found anything, would anyone possibly have any official photo's of the Duke's parents in full gala clothing, and also any pictures of the funerals of the Duke's parents. thank you in advanced.

Parallel to the memorial of last February 1st, the Town Hall of Lisbon promoted a series of conferences on the regicide of 1908, at the Palace Beau Séjour, where there is taking place, until February 15th, a Bibliographical Exhibition about the regicide.
Besides, the Library-Museum of the Republic and Resistance is promoting guided visits to the places where the event took place.


Here is a few more photos from the memorial to the regicide of King D. Carlos and Prince D. Luís Filipe. Photos from Câmara Municipal de Lisboa:

Thousands of white handkerchiefs, accompanied by strong applauses and tears of the pilgrims had marked this Sunday afternoon, when the cofin of Sister Lúcia was translated to the Basilica of the Shrine of Fátima. After the mass celebrated during the afternoon, the coffin was carried to the interior of the Basilica; a moment followed by a restricted group of people: 18 bishops, religious sisters of the Carmelo of Coimbra, and a few civil personalities, including D. Duarte Pio.

She seems to be the 'brains'of the family, as one portuguese friend of mine told me :) What carreer did she have prior to her marriage?

I would say she's a mixture of the traditional and modern models of Princesses. At one hand, she belongs to one of the most traditional and aristocratic families of the country and, at the other hand, she's an intelligent, independent and carrear made woman... From that point of view, I somehow compare the Duchess of Bragança to her cousin, Princess Mathilde of Belgium.

D.ª Isabel took her graduation in Business Administration and worked in a financial company. See more in my previous post.

My voluntary work here is made in another way, since I don’t have physical time for such, but I collaborate with some associations like this and I always give them the visibility that I can ", said D.ª Isabel.

12/00/2002. The royal family of Portugal in their new mansion in Ferragudo, Algarve. This is what the photos say in gamma press.

I didn't know that they had a house in Algarve.
