Princess Maria Gabriela is now living and working in Belgium, which is quite good for her marriage prospects.

Her Royal Highness has a degree in Advertising and works as a publicist.

And today she turns 26!

On Saturday, Prince Antonio and Princess Christine made a pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lapa, in Quintela de Sernancelhe, Portugal. They were accompanied by their daughters, Princesses Amélia and Maria Gabriela, and son-in-law, James Spearman (Princess Amélia's husband).

Prince Antonio prayed for his older brother, Prince Luiz, Head of the Imperial House of Brazil, who celebrated his 77th birthday on that day and is facing health problems.

The Imperial House of Brazil published some nice pictures.

Prince Rafael has just sent a video message to monarchists, apologizing for not being able to be present at the Monarchist Meeting in Rio de Janeiro, early this month.

https://www.facebook.com/promonarqui...9152705321313/

His Royal Highness said:

Dear monarchists,

Unfortunately, I could not attend last Monarchist Meeting. But couldn't not convey a message of support and encouragement to everyone who attended.

I want you to know that I was there in my thoughts, during the course of the entire event.

You can keep counting with me, as I'm sure I can count with you all, in this ideal that, increasingly, is proving to be the only solution for the restoration of the greatness of Brazil.

May God bless all of us, Brazilians.

Princess Christine will celebrate her 60th birthday tomorrow. The entire family will be reunited at the Chateau de Beloeil for the celebration.

The Princess was in Europe since June, traveling first to Portugal and than to Spain, where she stayed with her elder daughter and son-in-law, Princess Amélia and James Spearman, at their home in Madrid.

Prince Antonio was with her in Portugal, but he came back to Brazil in July. Now, he and Prince Rafael have travelled to Belgium.

The younger daughter, Princess Maria Gabriela, lives and works in Brussels.

Princess Christine will come back to Brazil at the end of the month, after the 86th birthday of her mother, the Dowager Princess of Ligne.

Prince Don Rafael of Brazil granted an interview to the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, FAZ.NET-. Your Highness spoke about their education, professional career, his duties as Prince of Brazil and future head of the Imperial House, of its intention to give continuity to the traditions of the Imperial family and to make a dynastic marriage, in addition to the prospects of restoring the monarchy in Brazil.

After the excellent interview conducted by German newspaper "Frankfutter Allgemaine" was the French magazine "Point de Vue", specialized in nobility, who interviewed S.a.r.l Prince Dom Rafael of Brazil, they talked about his childhood, education, career, personal life, about the Olympic Games, his future as head of the Imperial House of Brazil and their perspectives regarding the restoration of the monarchy in this country.

Yes, I've read both interviews, and I must say I was positively surprised, especially with the German one.

The young Prince sounds very mature. It seems he has finally came to terms with his position as future Head of the Imperial House. And it's understandable why it took him so many years, after the sudden and tragic death of his older brother. And I know his father and both his uncles had some serious talks with him about his role and position.

Also, the relationship with Miss Talita Vaccaro is confirmed to be over. And some of his relatives have told people that he plans to spend some time in Europe (one of his sisters lives in Madrid, the other in Brussels). Putting this together with the fact he said in the interview that he wants to marry accordingly to his House rules, so I'm now confidant regarding the continuation of the Imperial Family.

At these times of political, economic and social turmoil, who knows what can happen.

New interview with Prince Rafael, this time in English. He sounds very mature and ready to serve Brazil if called to do it.
