How terrible. This news story is so strange. I feel awful for all of the families involved, including the imperial family.

I just saw his name on the list. How terribly sad.

That was mentioned by a Portuguese paper (Correio da Manhã). Another tabloid (24 Horas) dedicated the front page to the Prince:

Tragic. There is no other word. Let us pray for Prince Pedro Luis, for all those who perished in this accident, and for their families.

Let us also rejoice and give thanks that others, such as Princesse Alix de Ligne, still live. I can only imagine her parents' relief, mixed (as it must be) with grief over the loss of their nephew.

What a reminder that every day is a gift, for each and every one of us.

Big Dreams, From the Stage to the Throne, Vanish With Jet

SÃO PAULO, Brazil - The crash of Air France Flight 447, with 228 people on board, ended many dreams. Few were as grand as that of 26-year-old Pedro Luíz de Orléans e Bragança: to be king of Brazil.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Mr. Orléans e Bragança was a descendant of the Portuguese royalty who reigned in Brazil until the late 19th century. He was passionate about returning Brazil to a monarchy. He was returning to Luxembourg, where he was living as the guest of a duke.

This event is incomprehensible. It's gut-wrenching each time some new person's identity and background is revealed.

When I heard a plane from Brazil to Europe had been lost, I fleetingly wondered about everyone I know/know of in Brazil, including the Orléans e Braganças and the Lorentzens. I was shocked when one of them actually appeared on the passenger list.

i am wondering if any other members have seen any news reports elsewhere in the world in regards the prince being on the doomed plane?
thanks

I'm really sorry, but...now I've lost my hopes.
Until now I hoped he and the others passengers were found alive, but...
My condolences to his Parents, his siblings, his Grandmothers and the whole Imperial Family and Ligne Family.

Princess D. Maria of Bavaria, unfortunately, lost her memory and is not conscient of anything.

The family is planning a mass at the Mosteiro de São Bento (a big barroque convent from the 18th century in the centre of Rio) for the HUGE crowds that probably will turn in, the European relatives also will be present.

D. Antonio and D. Cristina are starting to feel the burden and being emotional, they could not face a travel to Europe so soon.

D. Pedro Luiz visited São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Petrópolis. Everywhere he met his cousins who are extremelly depressed and even in despair.

It´s not the first flight accident with a menber of the Brazililan Imperial Family as Prince D. Eudes suffered one when in honeymoon on his second marriage in Jamaica. The couple had to survive eating cannabis.
Pequeno príncipe - Ancelmo Gois: O Globo

D. Pedro Luiz gave an interview last march with SURPRISING declarations!! A way of thinking very far from the way of thinking of his single uncles.
For instance he gave a positive opinion on the Lula´s administration:

"O Brasil é, nesta altura, um país respeitado que faz parte do G-20. Como vê esta nova imagem do Brasil no mundo?

D. Pedro: Estou muito contente com a performance económica do Brasil, tudo derivado da política de Lula da Silva. Sou um apoiante das opções políticas do governo brasileiro, que na minha opinião está a diminuir o fosso entre os brasileiros."

Is this loss of memory of D. Maria connected to the death of D. Pedro Luiz, or is it a situation she already was in? I hope so...
