I don't think it is physically impossible for a member of the former Brazilian Imperial family to get pregnant before marriage. But considering that the family is supposed to be rather conservative it would be somewhat original. But stranger things have happened.

What is known about the groom? Is he related to the English/Dutch noble Mackay family of the barons Reay of Reay? Lord Reay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

She's not a member of the Brazilian Imperial Family, her father renounced his rights to the Throne before his marriage and lost his title of Prince of Brazil.

Original, yes, it would be fairly original and deplorable. Not even her uncle Prince Eudes dared to do such a thing. And he married his mistress.

I doubt she's pregnant. Her parents, Prince Fernando and Princess Graça, are very conservative, the same goes for her elder sister and brother-in-law. The supposed belly is just an optical illusion.

From Monarquia Já (http://imperiobrasileiro-rs.blogspot...comparece.html)

"Alban Miller Mackay, born in 1979, is the son of the scottish Brian Hugh Miller Mackay and Delphine Marie de Maistre. His mother descends from the Family of the Counts de Maistre, being his maternal grandparents Count Eugène Xavier de Maistre and Countess Magali d´Isoard de Chénerilles - daughter of Marquiss Pierre d’ Isoard de Chénerille. His great-great-great-great-grandparent was Count Joseph de Maistre, renowed writer, philosopher, diplomat, lawyer, Catholic thinker and French Monarchist. Alban is also a descendant of the Counts de Sabran-Pontèves, the family of Princess Gersende, Duchess of Orleans, from the French Royal Family, wife of Prince Jacques, son of Princess Isabel of Orleans-Braganza, The Countess of Paris. Alban's father is the owner of the historical Château du Puiseux le Hauberger, in Oise."

2008. This is 2014. They are a nice family. But Brazil will remain a republic. This is all fantasy.

The last interview is not from 2008 but from September 2013, half a year ago. Not old at all.

The Prince Imperial of Brazil was invited to presided over the graduation ceremony of a group of young Catholic leaders, in the city of Toledo, in the state of Paraná.

After that, he distributed distinctives to young monarchists. Then, His Imperial and Royal Highness visited a winery.

On Tuesday, Prince Antonio and Princess Christine of Brazil attended a solemn session at Rio de Janeiro City. The session was in honor of Princess Isabel (1846-1921) and the Golden Law, which abolished slavery in Brazil, in 1888.

The session was presided by Alderman Cesar Maia, one of the most proeminent monarchist politicians, who is a canditade to the government of the state of Rio de Janeiro at this years elections.

As a tradition, the city presented Princess Christine with a bouquet of camellias, the flower wish simbolizes the brazilian abolitionist movement.

(not sure if this is the right thread, if not please move)

Dutch writer and journalist Annemarie Haverkamp travels the world to interview famous parents with handicapped children (and the children themselves).
One of her articles is about Princes Maria Cristina de Orleans e Braganca (who was born with Down's Syndrome) and her parents Dom Joao de Orleans e Braganca and Stella Luterbach. The article is a short version on a chapter on Princes Maria Cristina in a yet to be published book by Annemarie Haverkamp. The article was also published in various local dutch newspapers.
Article on the author's website (in dutch):
Braziliaanse prinses met Down-syndroom | Annemarie Haverkamp

translated to english with google translate (unfortunately google translate is not too good with dutch, but I hope you get the "gist")

On Sunday, Princess Cristina of Orleans-Braganza represented her second-cousin, Prince Luiz, Head of the Imperial House of Brazil, at the launch of the book "Her Imperial Majesty D. Thereza Christina Maria of Bourbon and Braganza, the Mother of Brazilians", the biography of Her Royal Highness' great-great-grandmother, Empress Teresa Cristina (1822-1889), the consort of Emperor Pedro II of Brazil (1825-1891), born Princess of the Two-Sicilies. The book was wrote by Professor Rogério da Silva Tjäder, the oldest militant of the Brazilian Monarchist Movement and well-known academic.

The gentlemen were dressed as 19th century Brazilian nobles, as the launch was held at a farm from that period. On the wall, the flag of the Empire of Brazil and pictures of Emperor Pedro II and Empress Teresa Cristina.

-------------------------------

On Tuesday, Prince Bertrand, Prince Imperial of Brazil, attended Solemn at the Church of St. Mary Mother of God, in Washington D.C.. The Mass was in honor of Blessed Emperor Karl of Austria (1887-1922), who was a third cousin of the Prince Imperial's father, Prince Pedro Henrique (1909-1981), former Head of the Imperial House of Brazil. The Emperor's wife, Empress Zita (1892-1989), was a great-aunt of the Prince Imperial's sister-in-law, Princess Christine (née Princess of Ligne), wife of Prince Antonio of Brazil.

Before the Mass, His Imperial and Royal Highness attended a lunch and gave a lecture on the life and faith of the Blessed Emperor. The Prince Imperial arrived in the United States on the 19th and will come back to Brazil next Sunday. His Imperial and Royal Highness went to the US on invitation of the American Society for the Defence of Tradition, Family and Property.

Pictures of the lunch:

Not yet, but she was heavily pregnant at the funeral of Queen Fabiola:

I suspect the little Count of Stolberg will be born until the end of the next month. I remember the pregnancy was announced in June.
