Thanks Juanita. The whole wedding seems rather trendy/flashy. Funny to see the duke and duchess between the guests, do you know how they are acquented to the bride and groom?

I have no idea, Marengo... I asked the same question and so far I haven't found anything that shows some kind of friendship between the couple and the duke and the duchess

Maybe the bride & groom are friends with them I would think so since the Duchess of Cadaval was also there.

I believe they were invited, because the family of the bride has noble origins. Besides being an influent businessman (auctioneer), João Thomaz Perestrello Pinto Ribeiro (her father) is some kind of knight

Looks like they are hiding the bride and the groom from not authorized cameras, so it is probable they sold the exclusive coverage of the wedding to some media.
So bad taste, IMO!

Yes... that's it. They sold the exclusive to Caras.

Well there's not much to hide! The bride looks like she wrapped a wash-cloth around her head and tied a curtain to it as a veil!

The Duke and Duchess of Bragança were among the guests of the Portuguese President, at the welcome banquet offered to the Grand Duke of Luxembourg:

D. Duarte was invested one of the new confrères of the beer. "Sagres Bohemia has been recently relaunched, with the support of Fundação Dom Manuel II. Until 1910, this beer was as the official provider of the Royal House.

Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess met the monarchic folks in Guimarães, for the counter-celebrations around the centenial of the Republic.
The Republic was established in Portugal, on October 5th 1910.

Thank you Elsa! I suppose it isn a coinsidence that the Duke celebrated this in the Northern part of the country, which is supposed to be more conservative and monarchic?

Nice to read the duke referring to a poem of Fernando Pessoa: the time is now! The duke is one of the few pretenders to the throne who is actually always promoting the monarchist cause. Although it comes with the job I don think it does his image a lot of good, as it makes him seem out of touch with reality.

Guimarães is often referred to as the "Cradle" of Portugal... it's where D. Henrique established the administrative center of the Condado Portucalense, where D. Afonso Henriques (the first king of Portugal) is said to have born... and it's where the batle of S. Mamede took place (in 1128).
It's a symbolic (and very beautiful) town.
