Apparentlly, the wedding will take place in the chapelle saint louis in dreux, west of paris. It is the official ceremonial place for the french royal family. The chapel saint Louis is build on the top of the old fortress and it belongs now to the fondation Saint Louis established by prince Jean's grand father. date should be may the 9th.

I suppose they want a relatively private ceremony because of the situation about the first and second wifes of his father

I don't think that this is the reason. For his cancelled Wedding with Duchess Tatiana of Oldenburg it had been announced that it woul take place at Chartres Cathedral and the evening before a Ball given by the late Comtesse de Paris at Château d'Amboise.
And at the Wedding of his brother in 1999 his father, stepmother and mother attended all attended both the civil and religious Ceremonies.
It was only a problem at the Wedding of his sister Marie when neither the present and the late Comte de Paris attended the religious Wedding and it was hosted by Duke Carl of Württemberg at Friedrichshafen Castle.

Concerning the wedding of Princess Marie , this wedding was supposed to be in the chapelle St Louis of Dreux. le Count of Paris payed her wedding dress.
At for a reason I forgot , the wedding took place at Friedrichshafen Castle, the place of ther Mother's Childhood. The Count of Paris did not assist at the wedding in Germany and his relationship with the Duchess of Montpensier changed.
I must say that I am very happy that the Duchess will have her real first place at the Wedding. She is the Duke of Vendome's mother.
She had two handicaped children François (who should have been the Dauphin) and Blanche before she got Jean and Eudes.
She is really a respectful Royal..

I do not know if this was an honest to goodness interview or snipets of one. If he actually said what is written here, he cannot be too bright.
Wall Street Journal is a serious daily and I have a hard time thinking they tried to twist his words. Still......I wonder how out of touch he is.

Odette, the entire interview was posted and HRH's exact comment was "...I love our wine, and I love our peasants".

I was more amused than offended when I read it, in fact I couldn't stop laughing all the way home from work LOL! It's such an ANCIEN REGIME comment it defies belief!

And yes you are correct..he is either wildly out of touch or really stupid or both. With members like that, the Orleans chances of regaining the French throne are slim to none!

I agree with you, rominet09, Point de Vue used to be one of the best royalty magazines,now its turned into a jumble of articles and interests. I liked the old magazine better. I hardly ever buy it nowadays.

Thank you amadea, I have never seen a picture of Tatiana after the engagement was broken off. I have no idea what the background is of Philomena de Tornos Steinhart or of Duchess Tatiana (in the sense of education) but it seems clear that the Orleans family found it more important that the bride would be catholic than that she would be royal. A combination of the two would have been even better I suppose....

On the French board "Noblesse et Royautés", the Wedding of Jean Duc de Vendome will take place on the 2nd of May at the Cathedral of Senlis followed by a Reception at Chantilly's Castle.
Why this changements of date and place ???
