They seem to be a very loving couple. On the subject of the engagement ring, wow!!! it is HUGE! I agree, it does look as if it has been in the family for awhile. That's great!

The future wedding brings to mind the former Franco-Portuguese union of King Carlos I and Queen Amelie (former Princess d'Orleans).

Another picture of them

Wow...they are almost like a storybook Royal couple. She is lovely, and he is very handsome. I am really looking forward to this wedding!

There's also where the ceremony is going to take place. You can see the Church of St. John Evangelist on the link I posted (which is part of the estate).

The Palace of the Cinco Quinas is partly setled on the Roman-Visigode walls of the old Castle of Évora (see the military contours of the building, as well as the tower of the main façade):

It was presented to the family by King D. João I, at the end of the 14th century.

Princess Isabelle of Orleans-Braganza, later Countess of Paris, and the late grandmother of Prince Charles-Philippe was born at the Chateau d'Eu. Her grandfather Prince Gaston was Count d'Eu and prince consort of the last Princess Imperal of Brazil.

I saw pictures of the palatine Church of St John the Evangelist in Point de Vue magazine a few weeks ago while reading an article on the restoration of the palace. It simply took my breath away...just beautiful.Thank you again for posting these stunning photos...I am soooo looking forward to this wedding!

The posts in this thread that deal about the dispute between the Cadaval sisters have been moved to this thread in the forum of Portuguese and Brazilian Royalty. Apart form that, Charles-Phillipe and Diane have their own current events now in the French forum, which can be found here. The dispute about the Anjou title can also be discussed there so we can keep this thread for discussing the actual engagement of the couple.

And according to Diário de Notícias, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Bragança, Infanta D.ª Maria Francisca, is one of the flowergirls that will escort Diana to the church, next June 21st.

According to Caras, not only Infanta D.ª Maria Francisca will be one of the flower girls, but D. Duarte Pio, Duke of Bragança, will also escort Diana down the aisle.

This article of Caras Magazine also says 400 guests will be present for the wedding on the Cathedral of Évora.

Diana's dress is from Carolina Herrera as it was said here before, and Charles Philippe will be dressed by Christian Dior.

The Duchess of Braganza, Alexandra of Cadaval (Diana's sister) and Countess Cornelia Brandolini d'Adda (Diana's cousin) will be Witnesses for Diana at the Church ceremony.
