Prince Luiz (who'll be 78 in June) will defintely not attend, as he seldom leaves his home, due to his health problems. Prince Bertrand (75) is still very active and travels a lot around Brazil, the US and Europe, so he may attend. Princess Isabel (72), who's also Princess Alix's godmother, is also in poor health, so she may not attend.

The other two uncles over 70, Princes Eudes (77 in june) and Pedro (70) are also in general good health, so I believe they'll travel to Belgium to attend her niece's wedding.

Prince Antonio and Princess Christine will certainly attend. I believe the other uncles and aunt (Princess Maria Gabriela) will also attend, and Princess Maria Thereza already lives in Belgium.

They'll marry on June 18 (next month), at the Church of Saint-Pierre-de-Beloeil, near Princess Alix's childhood home, Chateau de Beloeil.

The Imperial House confirmed that the Prince Imperial Dom Bertrand will attend his niece's wedding. Prince Luiz will not.

Prince Antonio and Princess Christine are already in Europe with Princess Amélia (who lives Madrid) and Princess Maria Gabriela (who lives in Brussels). Prince Rafael will go to Europe next week.

There's no information if Princess Alix will keep her Brazilian dynastic rights.

There's no information if Princess Alix will keep her Brazilian dynastic rights.
I was looking at the 1824 Constitution of the Empire of Brazil and what it said about succession to the Brazilian throne. Succession was hereditary on the legitimate descendants of D. Pedro I by male-preference primogeniture. Other than that, the only restrictions I could find on the text were:

  1. The Emperor, prior to his enthronement, and the Heir Apparent, upon reaching the age of 14, had to take an oath to preserve the Roman Catholic faith.
  2. The Heiress Presumptive to the throne could not marry without the consent of the General Assembly (i.e. the Brazilian parliament).
  3. No foreigner could ascend the throne.
As you can see, the constitution said nothing about "equal" or "dynastic" marriages and did not even require the monarch's or parliament's consent for any person in the line of succession other than the Heiress Presumptive to get married. I don't understand then why the so-called "Vassouras branch" comes up with those alleged "imperial house rules" regarding royal marriages and "excludes" individuals from the "line of succession" based on so-called "rules" that actually have no legal basis in the imperial constitution.

PS: The text in the above-referenced link is written using 19th-century Portuguese spelling, which is quite different from modern spelling and, therefore, might not work well with Google Translator (i.e. the translator might not recognize words written in the old spelling).

I know the 1824 Imperial Constitution quite well, having studied it as a History professor and as a monarchist.

Even though there wasn't a constitutional requirement, during the Empire, members of the Imperial Family only married European royalty, with Emperor Pedro II himself rejecting the idea of his daughters marrying Brazilian aristocrats. After the republican coup d'état, Princess Isabel merely officialized this already existing custom as a House rule.

Also, jurists have pointed out that Articles 11 and 98 of the 1824 Imperial Constitution can be interpreted as allowing the Head of the Imperial House to create House rules. There's an excelent book on this subject, "A legitimidade monárquica no Brasil" (The monarchical legitimacy in Brazil), by Dr. Armando Alexandre dos Santos.

If you consider that custom, I suppose the marriage of Princess Alix will be morganatic as well, since a count Dampierre is hardly on the same level. So that means that there will be 3 unmarried dynasts left in the Vassouras branch. I imagine that if they allow a marriage to non-royals their own claim would fall apart.

Princess Alix has renounced her rights.

The list of Brazilian dynasts grows ever shorter.

Is she's using the Ligne tiara that her aunt, Princess Christine of Brazil (nee Princess de Ligne) used at her wedding or the one she used at gala dinner before HGD Guillaume of Luxembourg's wedding. Or is it the one her cousin, Princess Amélia used, in 2014?

Princess Christine's tiaras:
