The Duke D. Duarte of Braganza was enthroned as "colleague" of The Royal "Brotherhood" of the Alvarinho Wine, in a ceremony held at the Palace of Brejoeira in Monção.

Please, I need some help to explain what this group means. Someone help me?

What a coinsidence, I will be staying in Moledo next week(s) and have a visit to a Monção planned to taste Alvarinho wines!

I suppsoe that it is a group of people who like to drink this wine and comes together to taste it a different occassions? In Holland we have the Genever brotherhood, who does something simular (but tasting Genever instead of wine). And I guess there will be more of these things all over Europe.

A Cronfraria is a group of people who like the wine (in this case) and sometimes comes together to taste it. The main role of a Confraria is to divulgate the wine, its history and defend the traditional way it is produced. When you become a Confrade you're accepted in that "brotherhood", so you join the other confrades in the many iniciatives they have but you also have the duty to divulgate the wine. So a confrade is somehow an ambassador of the wine.

Note that there are many kinds of confrarias in Portugal, there are confrarias of almost any traditional food/drink. Their main goal is to divulgate and preserve the product they are representing.

The north of Portugal is absolutely beautiful, and I'm not just saying that because that's where I'm from or anything! But Moledo is nice and perfectly located between Caminha and Ancora, Ancora has nice beaches too! And if you're going to Monção you should visit the palace where the Duke of Bragança was which is the Palacio da Brejoeira which recently opened to the public. Palcio da Brejoeira - Mono - Portugal

D. Duarte and D. Isabel of Braganza were at the wedding between Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia, head of the Royal House of Prussia and head of the German Imperial House, and Princess Sophie of Isenburg.

Yesterday, October 5th Portugal celebrated the beginning of the Republic but monarchists reunited in Coimbra to remember it was also in October 5th (but of 1143) that Portugal became an independent country with the Treaty of Zamora.

D. Duarte was obviously among them. Here is a video about it.

I'm sorry to disagree but it looks as if she left home in a hurry and never had the time to change from her pyjamas.

The Duchess of Bragança attended the launch of Charles Philippe d'Orléans book "Reis no exílio" - Kings in exile.

It deals with all the royal families who moved to Portugal, during and after WW2 such as the Savoys, Orléans, Bourbons, Bulgaria, Roumania and Hungarian Regent Admiral Horthy.

There is a chapter on the turbulent visit paid by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor shortly before the war, when Hitler planned to kidnap the king and take him to Germany to use him as a puppet monarch when the invasion would succeed.

Plenty of photos, many of them from the personal archives of the people described in the book.

According to C-Ph the main source was his grand-mother the late Countess of Paris who told him endless stories about that period she so intensely lived.

Back to the Duchess of Bragança, she made the launching speech:
Família Real Portuguesa: DISCURSO DE S.A.R., A SENHORA DUQUESA DE BRAGANÇA NA APRESENTAÇÃO DO LIVRO "REIS NO EXÍLIO", NO HOTEL PALÁCIO - ESTORIL 15 DE OUTUBRO DE 2011.

Among the audience, Pr.Michel de France, Ch.Philippe's father and his unofficial step-mother, D.Isabel de Bragança (Lafões), her ex. D.Pedro de Bragança, Infante D. Henrique, and of course , the Duchess and the Dowager Duchess of ´Cadaval.

The Windsors visit was already in 1940, after the war had began.

After the turmoil the visit caused, the Duke was shipped to the Bahamas, far from Germany's reach
