Moderators, can you please, change the title of this thread to "Prince Antônio, Princess Cristina & Children", so we can post about Princesses Amélia and Maria Gabriela without being off-topic?

I was very moved when Princess Cristina said that her favorite music is the Brazilian National Anthem. Seems that Her Royal Highness really loves her adopted country.
Also, in a recent interview, the Princess said that she considers herself a Brazilian.
Her Royal Highness would be a great Empress consort.

Are they related to the royals from the House of Braganza in Portugal?

Yes.

Prince Luiz, the Head of the Brazilian Imperial House, is a second cousin of the Duke of Braganza, Head of the Portuguese Royal House.

I suppose this marriage will not be considered 'equal' by her uncle, and she and her descendants will lose/not have succession rights? The Vassouras branche has made it quite difficult for itself.

Congratulations to the couple btw.

I think you're right, most likely this marriage will be regarded as unequal, given the very strict rules of the Brazilian Imperial Family.

Oh, James is only 12 days younger than Amelia! Is he Catholic or Protestant?
Love is the most important! Congrats to the couple!

I'm happy for Princess Amélia. But I'm afraid that the Head of the Imperial House will not surprise us.

Well, wait and see.

Congratulations to Mr Spearman and the future Mrs Spearman. I wish them a long and happy life together. I guess the princess was not at home when her parents were teaching the importance of marrying equally.

Oh, she was at home. But I'm sure her parents also taught her that love is more important.

No one is obliged to marry equally, but they're required to do so, in order to keep her succession rights.

Do you know in all your previous posts about the former Imperial Family, their marriage laws and their conservative values etc I this is think this is the first time you have acknowledged the importance of love let alone that it might be the more important factor in deciding to marry anyone.

For Amélia de Orleans e Bragança, love is more important.

For Princess Amélia of Brazil, the Dynasty is more important.

Amélia can marry for love, but Princess Amélia will (maybe) lose her rights. It's quite simple.

And IMHO since Amélia de Orleans e Bragança and Princess Amélia of Brazil are the same person, it is clear that love is more important rather than remain a Brazilian dynast.

Love is more important. But, as my grandmother always says "You have to face to consequences when you decides to make things for love".
