DN Online: Música dos bares Sasha e Nikki incomoda D. Duarte Pio

The Duke of Bragança is having restless nights, due to the loud music played at the bars Sasha and Niki, in Praia da Rocha (Portimão). He is now going to present a formal complaint, in order to stop these Summer night parties.

D. Duarte Pio spends his vacations in a property of his own, located on the bank of the river Arade, nearly one kilometre far from the bars that every year attract thousands of visitors, including many jet set personalities.

The Duke emphasizes: "The walls of my house tremble and the children can not sleep, due to the constant noise and music, up to 5 or 6 AM. It's unbelievable that the City Council of Portimão allows this".




Portimão: Câmara vai fazer novas medições a espaços nocturnos da Praia da Rocha depois de reclamação de D. Duarte - Lusa - SAPO Notícias

Meanwhile, the Town Hall of Portimão is going to ask for new noise measurements to the bars "Sasha" and "Nikki", in Praia da Rocha, after the Duke of Bragança presented his formal complaint. The vice-mayor of Portimão, Luís Carito, confirmed to the Lusa newsagency that they have received a fax from Dom Duarte, explaining the situation, and says that, according to the measurements already done, the limits of noise allowed by law are not exceeded and so the "inconvenience factor" is subjective, since he himself lives close to the house of D. Duarte and he does not feel bothered.

Nevertheless, new measurements are going to be done in the area of the bars, close to the marina.

I think Dom Duarte is right to complain. In Portugal, many bars and discos don't respect others rights to rest. I am a strong defensor of anti-noise laws (they exist in several european countries) and I am glad Dom Duarte is complaining about this situation.

The Duke of Bragança was one of the 600 guests, who attended the wedding of Princess Marie-Therese von Hohenburg, in Salzburg. Apparently D.ª Isabel could not go.

I thought that the Duke would be present, and I know what I'm going to say isn't about royalty but I wonder what Jose Castelo Branco and his wife Lady Betty were doing there, he must has felt like he was in paradise.

HAHA! Well said
I couldn't believe when I saw José Castelo Branco and his wife attending this wedding... I mean, this was a royal wedding, not a circus...

Well, I believe he's there, because of the groom's PR connections. Anthony Bailey has a house in Lisbon (where he proposed to Marie-Therese, as the new year dawned) and their civil wedding even took place in Sintra, in the Palace of Pena... So, he knows a lot of Portuguese polititians, royals and "VIPs" (he was wearing knighthood awards from the Duke of Bragança and the Portuguese President, with the uniform)... Not to mention that Lady Betty Grafstein is British...

D.ª Isabel

Has there been any more word on D.a Isabel's condition since her fall? I was hoping to hear that she is mobile enough to attend more functions. I know these things take time to heal but there hasn't been much word on her recovery. Any word would be great.
Thanks,
MM

Speaking of which (the palace, not the wedding) here is an attractive image of a unique Portuguese Royal Palace...

There's not much news about it... I believe she's still recovering, since she's not attending royal gatherings for a long time.

Yesterday, D. Duarte attendedthe closing session of a series of conferences about "D. Carlos no seu tempo", which had been organized in Porto, to celebrate the 100th anniversary since the regicide.


P.S. - Warren, that palace is the one I was refering above... where Princess Marie-Therese von Hohenberg and Anthony Bailey got civily married.

Expresso: D. Duarte preocupado com ataques do Governo à Igreja

During the annual "Jantar dos Conjurados" (which commemorates the 1640 Restoration of Independence), the head of the Royal House expressed his concern for what he calls the "preoccupying attacks" to the Church and the need to assure that the Country maintains the "truly independent sovereignty of all the economic, regional and politics powers".

About the signature of the European Treaty, D. Duarte stressed that a national debate is necessary and that the return of a king is needed: "By signing the Treaty, we say that we want to belong to Europe. Having a King would mean saying that Portugal continues belonging to the Portuguese people".




DN Online: D. Duarte elogia o Rei Juan Carlos e protege Chávez da polémica

During the “Jantar dos Conjurados” (which gathered 500 monarchists, at the Quinta de Santa Sofia, in São Domingos de Rana), D. Duarte Pio de Bragança supported the attitude of Juan Carlos de Bórbon (during the XVII Latin American Summit in Chile, where he asked Hugo Chávez to shut up). However, the Head of the Portuguese Royal House also expressed his gratitude to Chávez, for the approach that the President of Venezuela made to Portugal, valuing the four hundred thousand Portuguese people that live in his country and making possible a more efficient cooperation".

Being this meeting a commemorative dinner of the December 1st 1640, D. Duarte also evoked the Restoration of Independence, but made clear that today the National Independence could be weakened in many ways. This way, D. Duarte introduced in his speech the Lisbon Treaty, which will be signed in the Monastery of the Jerónimos, next December 13th. After indirectly praising the Government, for the diplomatic achievements, D. Duarte expressed his concerns about the institutional reform of the European Union, overly because of the introduction of a European President, who D. Duarte wishes shall not mine the diversity of the nations.

Well, any chance that he is even opening a debate? About the monarchy or even about keeping the national identity? Or are his remarks generally not taken too seriously? Mind you, judging from the clip you showed above (Duarte at a militairy school) it seems people are treating him with reverence, especially considering that he was interviewed by a commercial channel, not by a state one.
