Thanks for the pics, Elsa. I think all the 2 children will become very tall. Francisca has very long legs, doesn't she?
And Afonso is alreay taller than his mother.

Thanks for those pictures Elsa, they are very nice. A pity the duke isn' t included in them though. The chilren are certainly very blonde, i suppose the German genes are showing .

Dª Isabel was a very blonde child too so the blondeness comes from both sides

(FromNescafe Forums netcafé@monarquia.moderna :: Index
- Caras Magazine)

Blonde Isabel:

1 2 3


After her first years, she became darker

1 2 3


It seems the Infantes will remain blonde at least longer than Isabel did. The austrian genes are indeed very present.

That's exactly what I thought!!

Check this link of Nescafe Forum where you can see the scannings from Caras and even read the article about her childhood (only in Portuguese), posted by Bruno Roberto.

The Duke and Duchess of Bragança were among the guests that attended the return dinner offered yesterday by the King and Queen of Sweden to the Portuguese President, Cavaco Silva. There are a few photos of the ducal couple, but only accesible to the assigned press. D.ª Isabel was very elegant, wearing what seems to be the same blue dress she used at the GD Couple's Silver Wedding Celebrations in Luxembourg, in 2006.
Have a glipmse here.

Here's the thread of the State Visit:

According to a VIP magazine, D.ª Isabel is going to have a second surgery, next September, due to the injuries suffered last year, when fell off a horse.

Last year, Dª Isabel has an accident when she was riding. She broke one of her coller bones. Probably she is not completely recovered from the the fracture. I don't know if she rode again after the accident. See this

Probably she will Hospital da Luz again. All the best for her!

Região de Leiria > Edição Impressa > Educação & Ciência - Escola recebe D. Duarte em festa

On May 9th, D. Duarte Pio de Bragança was enthusiastically recieved in the School EB2 Dr. Manuel de Perpetual Oliveira, in Porto de Mós. The Duke of Bragança was invited by the students from the 5th grade, who had written him a letter, during a History class.

After giving autographs and taking photos with the children, D. Duarte gave a "history lesson", during which he presented the advantages of the Monarchy and he said that the expenses of the Portuguese Presidency of the Republic are only supplanted by one European monarchy: the United Kingdom.

Hipódromo do Campo Grande organized the International equestre Competition of Jumps (CSIO Lisboa) for the 88th time.

The Dukes of Braganza and Children were present on this event.

The official blog of Real Associação de Beja says thet the Duke and Duchess wouldn't be present. It says "The Dukes of Braganza not invited for royal reception".

Real Associação de Beja: Duque de Bragança agastado da recepção aos Reis da Noruega a Portugal !!

After all, they were there.

Perhaps any of the Portuguese posters can help us to find out what was the topic of the interview. My Portuguese sadly is rather disappointing.
