D. Duarte Portugal está doente e maltratado - Expresso.pt


In his traditional messageof December 1st, D. Duarte de Bragança, says that Portugal is "sick and abused" and that the international financial and economic crisis does not justify the present situation of the country. In his speech, delivered at a dinner hosted in Convento do Beato, Lisbon, the head of the Royal House made a very hard diagnosis of the Portuguese situation and criticized what he calls the excessive expenses involved in the celebrations around the centennial of the Republic.



1.º Dezembro: D. Duarte favorável a uma figura legal para a união de casais do mesmo sexo - NotÃ*cias Lusa - SAPO Notícias

D. Duarte de Bragança said to agree on a legal frame for homosexual couples, but stressed today that such situations can not be mixed with marriage, whose main vocation has been, for centuries, that of raising and protecting children. The heir to the throne admited however other forms of legal protection to all the couples that live together.

In the aftermath of the approval by the Portuguese parliament of gay marriage, the Duke of Bragança stated that by giving the status of marriage to homosexual unions, "one can not prevent an adoption". D. Duarte Pio is against this possibility, at least regarding the marriage of two men, since, in his opinion, every "child needs a mother".

D.ª Isabel appears on the latest issue of Caras magazine. No real substance in the interview... she talks about her role as mother, wife and collaborator with some projects, such as the Alzheimer Portugal association. Her dreams, hopes and aspirations for a more solidary world...
