The family attended the christening of one of D. Isabel's nephew. Afonso was one of the godparents.

^^ Thanks for the scans Elsa M.

The pics are really nice. D.Isabel is so beautiful and Maria Francisca is gaining some features of a woman already and is becoming as beautiful as her mother Anyway, Dinis is the cutest. He seems to be the most outgoing of the family, no? He's always smiling while is sister and brother seem to be a bit shy. Do you know in which school Afonso is studying in England? Is is the same Infanta Elena's son was?

I believe it's the same private school as the one attended by his cousins of Liechtenstein.
One thing that bothers me about the boy is that he's always so stiff, with his head up, as if he was wearing an invisible crown. It may not be the case, but it comes accross as a perky atitute, IMO.

Tuesday D. Duarte will attend a (more than deserved) tribute to Gonçalo Ribeiro Teles, a man with an amazing curriculum in areas such as environment, landscape architecture and also a famous monarchist

D. Duarte is in Timor and tomorrow, Monday, he will be honoured at the parliament with Timorese nationality.
The Duke of Bragança arrived in Dili, on Thursday, for a one-week visit, during which he will also take the opportunity visit some cooperation projects supported by the D. Manuel II Foundation .

Congratulations to D. Duarte. He deserves. This proves that Portugal will gain a lot if the country gives more powers/functions to him. Even if it continues being a republic, our governments should understant that D. Duarte can help the country and do a good service to the nation, mainly in diplomatic relationships.
I feel deeply honoured as a portuguese and as a monarchist

This is a Timorese order. Has he received any orders from the Republic of Portugal?

I don't think he has any orders from the Republic but he is the head of the order of Our Lady of Vila Vicosa, and the government recognizes him as the head of this order.

D. Duarte's new passport from Timor has been posted in facebook:
http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot...39644824_n.jpg

As they called for attention in FB, the passport has all his names and even the title of SAR. So Timor recognizes this as valid and Portugal doesn't.

This facebook page (LINK) also has pics of him attending the inauguration of Monumento Sala Thai, in Belém, Lisbon, also attended by the princess of Thailand, and aims to celebrate the 500 years of diplomatic relationships between Portugal and Thailand.

I wonder if The Duke and The Princess spoke during the inauguration, I did not see any pics of them conversing. Interesting how the President could not find himself to attend this event, yet another reason why Dom Duarte should be the head of state!
