Gaston embracing a dog(pics1-3) that is practically the same size he is...so adorable!

It looks like it won't be long until the Duchess has her baby....

Lovely photos of an attractive family - I'll be interested in learning more about them.

Via Royal Musings, I stumbled across a short interview with the Duke of Vendôme, which talks about his family, children and his public role. I have translated the interview into English for those of us who can't speak French:

https://translate.google.com/transla...-text=&act=url

I thought the interview was interesting and I didn't know a lot of the things that were mentioned in it beforehand, such as how Princess Astrid of Belgium is Prince Gaston's godmother and that they're very close to the BRF. I wonder if a member from the BRF will be Princess Louise-Marguerite's godmother when the time comes. I didn't know enough about the Duke of Vendôme to form a sold opinion on him, but now I've decided that I quite like him and feel that even though his family isn't reigning any more, he is still prepared to 'connect' with members of the French public.

Wonderful new pics!

Big brother Prince Gaston, big sister Princess Antoinette, the Duke and Duchess of Vendôme have proudly presented the new member of the family Princess Louise-Marguerite, Eléonore, Marie. The pics were taken in Dreux on August 22, so the little princess, born on July 30, was a bit more than 3 weeks old that day.

Thanks iceflower for posting the new photos of all three children! Princess Louise-Marguerite is adorable, I love her and Princess Antoinette's dresses. I adore old fashioned dresses like those on little girls. I think my favourite photo is the fourth one, as I love how Princess Antoinette is putting her finger to her lips, as if to tell the others to be quiet as her little sister is sleeping or about to go to sleep. I also like the photo of Prince Gaston and Princess Antoinette in what I assume is Princess Louise-Marguerite's pram, I wonder if that was a case of them wanting to be like their younger sister (I have friends with two daughters and the older daughter often wanted to copy her little sister when they were younger).

According to Noblesse & Royautes, little Princess Louise-Marguerite was christened yesterday. Her godparents are Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg, Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein, The Duke of Luynes, Archduke Michael of Austria and Alvaro de Orleans y Borbon (the site calls him a Prince but I haven't heard of a "Prince Alvaro" in the present day, so am not sure if it is correct which is why I left this out):

Prince Jean's mother, the Duchess of Montpensier was present, as well as her children Blanche and Eudes and daughter-in-law Marie-Liesse, as mentioned in Noblesse et Royautes.
Instead the presence of the Count of Paris isn't mentioned in the article, so this lets me think that he wasn't there.
