Pró Monarquia released today the Christmas message of Prince Luiz, Head of the Imperial House of Brazil. For the first time, the message was released on video. Curiously, this years is also the first the President of the Republic will not broadcast a Christmas message to the Nation (not that we will miss a message from that horrible woman ).

The poor Prince looks frail. I first met him when I was just a little girl, many many years ago.

Translation:

To our very dear Brazilians,

Our beloved Brazil, this year, went through numerous adversities, from violent and unjustifiable economic crisis and the most serious corruption scandal to, even in the natural, disasters such the dam in Mariana.

We must recognize that most of this crises reflects the grave moral crisis that pervades our institutions and our society.

When the angels from heaven chant again their song asking for the Glory of God in the highest heaven, and the Peace on Earth to the men of good will, at the feet of the Holy Child I will ask the Blessed Mother Aparecida that She has mercy for Brazil.

May the hope, softness and strength that characterize the Holy Family at all times find place in every heart.

These are my sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all Brazilians!

In the 21 of December, Prince Luiz, Head of the Imperial House of Brazil, and his brother, Prince Bertrand, Prince Imperial of Brazil, offered a small reception at their house in São Paulo, for members of their Secretariat and other close friends. Prince Rafael was also present.

Pró Monarquia released two pictures of Prince Luiz, Head of the Imperial House of Brazil, and his brother and heir, Prince Imperial Bertrand of Brazil. The pictures were taken on Dia de Reis, "Kings' Day" (an equivalent the Twelfth Night holiday, I think). The Princes were presented with a "Kings' cake" by a monarchist lady. To celebrate the birth of Jesus, the cake was surrounded by Brazilian sweets called "bem-nascidos" (well-born).

With the news about Princess Alix's engagement, I forgot to post this here.

On the 2 of February, the Prince Imperial of Brazil turned 75. Pró Monarquia, the Secretariat of the Imperial House, offered a dinner in his honor, held in a French restaurant in São Paulo.

One of the Prince Imperial's many nephews, Prince Gabriel of Orleans-Braganza, was present, along with Prince Casimir of the Two-Sicilies and his wife, Princess Maria Cristina, nee of Savoy-Aosta. Many monarchists, personal friends of the Prince and a few authorities were also present.

Three speeches were made in honor of His Imperial and Royal Highness.

On April 24, Prince Rafael of Brazil turned 30. Two days later, at their house, in São Paulo, his uncles, Prince Luiz, Head of the Imperial House of Brazil, and Prince Bertrand, Prince Imperial of Brazil, honored him with a birthday party.

Another nephew, Prince Pedro Alberto of Orleans-Braganza (firstborn son of Prince Alberto and Princess Maritza) was also present. Among the guests, members of the Imperial House Secretariat and young monarchists. Prince Rafael received hundreds of congratulatory messages from all over Brazil.

Prince Luiz encouraged his nephew to fulfill his mission as a Prince of Brazil and future Head of the Imperial House. Prince Rafael reaffirmed his promise, made after the death of his older brother, to always serve Brazil.

An interview by the Financial Times with Dom Bertrand. if theyever intend to do another referendum for the monarchy, it is safe to say that they should try to keep the prince quiet. Some of his claims are downright bizarre.

I think the tone of the interview is very tendentious (not sure if this is the right word). And I don't know if the interview was conduct in Portuguese or in English, but, having heard the Prince Imperial talking about all those subjects, I can tell you much of what he said was lost in translation.

The things he say about the Indiginous population needs some clarification: he has a problem with the policy of the now-defunct PT Government, that almost forced the native Brazilians to live like they lived in 1500, in sub-human conditions. Like if they were in a zoo, as the Prince said.

And it's well known the level of corruption and irregularities in government agencies responsible for the native Brazilians and historical black communities. The last one marked by a deep sense of Marxist class struggle.

Prince D. Bertrand participated in an interview yesterday with Mariana Godoy.

The episode opens with a view into the São Paolo home of the Prince, which he shares with his older brother Prince D. Luiz, and which is filled with objects which recall the history of Brazil and its imperial family.

In a poll taken by Godoy earlier in the week on Twitter, it was found that 41% of respondents would be in favor of a monarchy--this was a higher number than any of the other political options offered were able to command.

Dom Bertrand and his so-called "Vassouras branch" of the imperial family are a reactionary, ultraconservative group that does considerable damage to the monarchist cause in Brazil. The so-called "Petropólis branch" on the other hand, which is the legitimate most senior line of the House Orlléans-Bragança, has a much more modern outlook and stands for a progressive constitutional monarchy along the liines of the restored Spanish monarchy.

Dom Bertrand, his brothers, sister-in-law, nephew and niece are very popular within the monarchist movement. Just yesterday, they reunited almost 200 monarchists (half of them, people under 30) in Rio de Janeiro, for 26th National Monarchist Meeting. Not to numerous Imperial flags seen in the recent anti-Government demonstrions.

Brazil is a country where the majority of the population is conservative, so I guess a conservative Imperial Family isn't going to be a problem (quite the opposite).

Members of the Petrópolis branch show no interest in the monarchists. Many of them, inclunding it's "head", Dom Pedro Carlos, have declared themselve republicans. Which is hardly a problem, as the 1908 renunciation of Prince Pedro de Alcantara is recognized by 99.9% of the Brazilian monarchists.

I suppose almost all the Brazilian monarchists respect the Vassouras branch very much.

Apparently not everybody from the Petropolis branch is republican and not interested in the monarchy; I've just found this interview to Prince João Henrique de Orléans e Bragança, who supports the restoration of the monarchy in Brazil.
However, and not unsurprisingly IMO, he doesn't support the ideas and political activities of his "Vassouras" cousins, especially of Prince Bertrand, and suggests that - in case of a monarchical restoration - it should be the Parliament to decide who the new Emperor should be.
