D. Duarte de Bragança is one of the new confreres of coffee. The ceremony, organized by the Confraternity of the Coffee, was held at the Ajuda Palace, last Tuesday, as part of the celebrations around the World Day of Coffee.

Papa 2010. Bandeiras na janela para Bento XVI (falta saber a cor)


Responding to intentions of receiving the Pope with black flags (a protest to the pedophilia scandals involving the Catholic Church), the Duke and Duchess of Bragança are promoting a "banner of peace", to be displayed on the windows.

The royal couple will closely follow the first official visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Lisboa, Fátima and Porto, and they have already chosen their gift to Ratzinger: a statue of Our Lady of the Rosary.

I must say, Duarte looks so like his grandfather Miguel II. Amazing!

According to newspaper Expresso, Afonso (14) is going to study in England, from September onwards. The private school was not revealed, but it's the same Catholic school on the outskirts of London, where the Liechtenstein princes are also studing.
In Lisbon, Afonso used to attend a Catholic private school, where he was not the top of his class, but had good marks in Science.

According to 'noblesse & royautes' , the eldest son of Dom Duarte, prince Afonso, will go to a catholic college near London when the new school year starts.

The duchess was always against the idea of her children studying in "colégios internos" - boarding schools, as Colégio Militar. So, I find this news a bit strange. Elsa, you once posted that Afonso was having bullying problems at school. Do you know if this recent decision has something to do about it?

This family live sclose to several very good private schools as Carlucci American school or International christian school of Cascais, both located in Sintra.

Maybe the decision has to do with giving Afonso a more contact with european young nobles, who knows?

Dunno... I suppose it's a mix of both.
As much as good the Portuguese private schools may be, in Lisbon he will always be regarded as the weird boy who thinks deserves to be the king... that must be a terrible stigma for a teenager to live with.
In England, this class consciousness is part of the culture, so he will be seen as "normal"... especially if the Liechtenstein princes and other nobles are attending the same school... he'll finally be among his peers.
Besides, it's good for him to study abroad and be introduced to other cultures. Nowadays, it's what most everybody does, when entering University... he's just antecipating the decision... 3 years.
