There's still an incertitude on the name of the passengers. Even the governments don't have the list of the passengers yet. So until we get more information, it's very hard to tell. There's already a thread on this news here.

Until we have official confirmation of the loss of a member of the royal family, there's little point speculating. I'm closing the thread for the moment.

We have a thread in Members' Corner for discussion of the incident itself:

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ard-22163.html

If the loss of this member of the royal family is confirmed by a reputable news source, the airline, or the family, this thread will be reopened immediately.

We apparently have confirmation (in Portuguese):

Folha Online - Cotidiano - Família Orleans e Bragança confirma que príncipe brasileiro estava no voo AF 447 - 01/06/2009

Please note that this thread is specifically about Don Pedro, not about the other people who appear to have perished in this incident.

It is an unfortunate development. It is impossible to imagine what Prince Pedro's parents are going through.

Yes, it's confirmed by the Imperial family. He was 4th in the line to the throne

I suppose so... His uncle, D. Francisco de Orleans e Bragança, told the press that he came to Brazil to visit friends and family:

I´ve just arrived from......Air France where I went to buy my own ticket. People in the lift were extremely sad and they talked only about it, when I told them there was an Orleans-Bragança in the airplane there were so very shocked!!!
The taxi driver was also very sad, in short the country is in mourning

How horrible!

I believe they will be searching for the air plane in the sea & asked assistance from the USA, but the chance of finding the plane, let alone any people, is very small.

According to José at the Benelux Royals MB, the prince's cousin, princess Alix de Ligne, was supposed to take the same flight. She however took another flight.

--
Prince Pedro Luis is the grandson of princess Marie Alix of Luxembourg, sister of Grand Duke Jean.
