I think that's it. D.Duarte must mean that the Infanta Cristina must be treated as a normal member of the "King's family" now that she has been acquitted.

It's interesting that he brings up king Baudouin of Belgium as an example in his refusal to sign the abortion law. He is quite clear that he would have done the same had he been king when abortion was legalized in Portugal; he would never have signed a law 'that would sentence my fellow citizens to death'.

The final question is interesting as well: how would Portugal have looked liked under king Duarte Pío. His answer:
"We would have been spared 40 years of dictatorship and entered into the European project earlier. We woud have had an equivalent of the British Commonwealth with our former colonies united. We would have been an advanced and democratic country like the other European monarchies.

D.Duarte always talks about the old colonies and we might have had a kind of Commonwealth with the former colonies united.
D.Duarte used to visit Mozambique and was the president of the Timor 87 campaign, a campaign to support the independence of Timor-Leste (a Portuguese colony that was then occupied by Indonesia).
With several supports, Duarte Pio managed to build a neighborhood of forty houses for displaced Timorese. Through the Dom Manuel II Foundation, which she chairs, she also sent aid to Timor-Leste worth several hundred thousand euros.

Another snippet that might be interesting to highlight is where he talks about it being no problem for the British royal family that Meghan is a divorcee as they are Anglicans but how it would be pronlematic for his famiky because they are catholic. He seems to forget that in the catholic church (in contrast to the Anglican church) she would not have been considered divorced as her first wedding did not include a church ceremony. That's why Letizia was able to marry the prince of Asturias while a more devout divorced Spanish woman would most likely not have been able to marry him if her first marriage had included a church wedding as well.

Afonso of Bragança visited the Food Bank
Afonso of Bragança visited the Food Bank and was in direct contact with those who every day help feed Portugal.
The Prince of Beira had the opportunity to learn how this important institution works and congratulated all those involved in the organization.
