Why is that ridiculous? The Comte de Paris leaves the line of succession intact from most senior legitimate male agnate to the next most senior legitimate male agnate in the Famille de France. He is no King, there is no Parliament, there is no royal Constitution in force. The Comte de Paris respects the existing set of rules and sees his eldest son Prince François, Comte de Clermont as the rightful Dauphin.

Prince François sadly is not capable to act as the Head of the Maison de France and therefore his eldest brother Prince Jean is appointed as Régent du Dauphin. Prince Jean will be assisted by a Board of Guardians. It is a very elegant solution wit full respect to the undeniable royal birthright of Prince François, the eldest son of Henri d'Orléans and of Maria Theresia von Württemberg.

My esteem and admiration for Prince Henri has only grown. Instead of shoving aside, of neglecting, of hiding his mentally disabled son, he keeps his rights and his position intact. I like that very, very much. Vive le Prince!

I gather rominet might be surprised by terms as "counsil of state" and "regent" since the maison de France is not a reigning one.

Oh in that way. I think it is only logical that a regent is appointed and helped (controlled) by a council to take care of the interests of Prince François. How often have we not heard or read about "guardians" or "custodians" who sucked the person in their care into a total bankruptcy while filling their own bank accounts? So on his turn Prince Jean is controlled, how he manages the interests of his brother and of the House. A wise decision.

In Romania -another defunct monarchy- there is also such a council, even with Archduke Lorenz of Austria-Este, Prince of Belgium having a seat in it... Apparently that Council backed the transfer of royal duties to Princess Margareta, the current "curator of the throne" and the exit of Nicholas Medforth-Mills, so it seems not unique to have a council.

It is understandable that Count of Paris wants to follow the usual succession line. Prince Jean's children are going to continue the blood line. I highly doubt that Prince Jean will misappropriate Prince Francois' inheritance and leave him penniless.
I too find the council a bit odd.
