Princesse Isabelle d'Orleans was born today (22 February 2012) in Lisbon.

She is the daughter of Prince Charles Philippe d'Orleans, duc d'Anjou, and Princesse Diane d'Orleans, duchesse d'Anjou and duchesse de Cadaval.

Princesse Isabelle is named after her great-grandmother, the late Comtesse de Paris.

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess and the young princess Isabelle! Today is also the day of St. Isabelle of France, so two reasons to name her Isabel. On the official announcement it is said the family will live between Estoril & Evora. Isabelle weighs 3.610 kilos. The official announcement and family monogram can be found here.

I did not know in Portugal you could take the baby home without a carseat, I thought it was mandatory, I guess not.

It is very strange to see a french prince announcing his candidacy to become a deputy of the National Assembly of the french... REPUBLIC!

I for one hope he wins, Monarchy is never coming back to France and at least he realizes that and is finding new ways to help the French people. The Foundation of Monarchy after all is represent and serve the people.

It may sound weird at the beginning to think of a prince wanting to became a member of a parliament of a republic. But if you think twice, it's not necessarily a contradition:
the parliament is a symbol of DEMOCRACY, which, despite what some republicans think (I know plenty of them) is not the same thing as REPUBLIC and is not a contrary concept of monarchy. I know, I know, it's the parliament of a republic but it represents democracy, people's right to choose the destiny of their country. The Republic's main symbol is the head-of-state, the president. the main (not the only one) difference between monarchy and republic is in the choice (or lack of it) of the head-of-state. Charles-Philippe is not running for president...He doesn't not aim to represent the republic but to represent the people and democracy
It's also quite common to see in some republican countries some people feeling surprised about monarchists (in general not just princes) participating in the political life of the republic. Again they misunderstood democracy with republic, but also keep forgetting that it's not because I don't like the way the country works that I don't have the right to participate in the decisions of my country. Charles-Philippe may prefer that France was a monarchy but french people don't. He has to respect that but that doesn't mean that he shouldn't participate in french political life. It's a move on decision and as jonc93 said findind new ways of helping the people.

Well Louis Napoleon Bonaparte started out as the elected President of the French Republic before becoming Emperor. King Simeon of Bulgaria managed to get himself elected as Prime Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria.

Charles Philippe certainly has a better chance of becoming a deputy that he ever has of becoming a monarch.

Maybe Charles Philippe tries to do like his ancestors the Orléans.
His ancestor Philippe Egalité, the traitor, voted the death of the king Louis XVI. His son Louis Philippe usurped the throne to the legitim king Charles X and became King of the French; a sort of king of the Revolution. And about his own sons; the prince of Joinville became deputy in 1871 and the duke of Aumale almost became president of the Republic.
The Orléans are republican so, in a way, he does what he wants to do.

He is not the fist of his branch entering politics. His ancestor, Philippe Egalité, was a republican politician too.
