This is the wrong "Duke and Duchess of Anjou" for this thread.

No; it's the right one, if you read through the thread, you'll see others have posted about the same couple, I'm not that clumsy!

If you're promoting other claimants it would be best to create a thread or contribute to another section of the forums otherwise accusations like this will become confusing for other posters reading.

It appears to me that the linked photo is of Charles Philippe, a nephew of the Orleans claimant, while this thread is for the legitimist claimant Luis Alfonso de Borbon.

The thread you were looking for is this one: Charles-Philippe (d'Orleans), Diana (Duchess of Cadaval) and their daughter Isabelle.

As the title of this thread specifies, this thread (that we are posting in) is for Luis Alfonso (de Borbon) and his family (his wife Margarita and children Eugenia, Luis and Alfonso).

Ouch, seems that I stand corrected then. And another silly mistake for me! I don’t know why I have been making these simple errors lately. Maybe I need more

It is confusing if multiple people are using the same title; mistakes can easily happen

Full name: Enrique de Jesús; and apparently born in New York (I thought the family was living in Madrid).

They likely do reside in Madrid.

However, all of their children have been born in the United States.

Presumably this was a conscious decision on the part of Luis and Maria Margarita.

If Luis Alfonso is serious about being the head of the Royal House of France, shouldn't he live in France and raise his children there ? The fact that they live in Madrid and his children are given Spanish names and presumably speak Spanish as their first language doesn't help his claim.

So, what's the purpose? Make sure they are American citizens (but why)? And/or to not favour Spain over France (or the other way around)?

I'd say that he is serious about his claim of being the head of the house of Borbo(u)n. His claim to the French throne derives from that (and includes his ambitions regarding Spain) but he clearly 'feels' mostly Spanish which makes sense given that his immediate family is Spanish.

He is essentially a Spaniard, of course. His situation is the same as that of prince Carlos de Bourbon de Parme who is Duke of Parma but essentially a Dutchman.

In Spain Luis Alfonso does enjoy a title equal to a Spanish grandee (Excellency), and his French official documents recognize him as HRH the Duke of Anjou. (The titles claimed by all three pretenders to the French throne are recognized in the republic of France.)

https://www.elconfidencialdigital.co...861513845.html
¿Por qué se le llama príncipe?
-Está reconocido como tal en Francia. En los documentos oficiales expedidos por el Estado francés se le titula SAR el duque de Anjou.

-He is recognized as such in France. In official documents issued by the French state he is titled HRH the Duke of Anjou.)

Jaime's descendants would have been incapable of being princes, according to the Royal Family of Spain (albeit Franco recognized them as princes), with or without the renunciation, owing to the "unequal" status of his marriage. No line was drawn until King Juan Carlos issued his royal decree of 1987. Had Jaime concluded an equal marriage, his descendants would have been royal, and the same applies to the descendants of his sisters and nieces.

To be more specific, Carlos de Bourbon de Parme claims to be Duke of Parma, but his claim is not recognized in Italy, the state which annexed the duchy of Parma.
