TLC's "Secret Princes"

Hello! I'm not sure if a post has been made about this TV show already...has anyone been watching it?

Does anyone happen to have any insight about the cast's claims to royalty? Notably Prince Francisco de Borbon y Von Hardenburg-Furstenberg? His father is the legitimate Duke of Seville (Francisco de Borbón y Escasany, 5th Duke of Seville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) but I'm an not sure if this would make the son a Prince (as he claims)?

Someone has put some effort toward outlining the legitimacy of the castmates' titles, worth a read: Royal Musings: "Secret Princes" - Spare me ...

There is an existing thread that goes into details on the casts lack of bona fides. With the possible exception of the Indian guy none of them are princes.

Isn't this the truth? TLC is extremely disappointing.

I don't know, I think the show is to funny. I did find a site that does show some bit of credibility for what one of them says : List of living legitimate male Capetians - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

it shows the duke of seville but underneath the diagram it shows add ons for the seville and his father and his name is there. The diagram shows where they stand. It was interesting to look at. I would never be embarrassed to be an american least of all on the lack of knowledge of a royal. We did get rid of that over 200 plus years ago :)

cheers Cyndi

Prince: 1, a ruler whose rank is below a King 2. Head of principality. A example of this would be the Principality of Monaco. 3. a nonreigning male member of a royal family 4a In Great Britain, son of the King or Queen b any of various noblemen in other countries. This is the defintion of a prince according to Webster's Dictionary.

Duke:1. a prince who rules an independent duchy 2. a nobleman of the highest herditary rank below that of a prince (this would describe the duke of seville). This is the definition of a duke according to Webster's dictionary.

A Duke is not the same as a Prince.

The only Prince of Spain I've ever heard of is Prince Philip. If I'm wrong, please correct me.

This is such a waste of time. I watched for a while so that I could report. I turned off when one of the princes spent a lot of time explaining why he could not share a lav. Silly, silly silly. The home they live in has a lot of steps from the street. Sigh - predictable.

No one I know is watching the show. Good!

I dunno i think that is a chart for french succession not spanish. I didnt make a comment on spanish only the chart which pertains to FRENCH. It's really not a big deal, I was laughing and making fun of it but I can see this is way to serious of a conversation for me to really take seriously. It's not like the french monarchy is going anywhere these days. It appears the spanish one is in dire straits unless they find some euro's to bail them out of this crisis. Have a great night.
