Her Royal Highness Princess Louise-Marguerite Eléonore Marie d'Orléans was baptized last Sunday. Instead of a ceremony at the Chapelle Royale in Dreux, the parents opted for a simple baptism during the regular Sunday Mass in the local parish of Dreux (Église Saint-Pierre). Père Jean-Marie Lioult, the local priest, officiated the service and baptised the royal infant.

The godparents were:
la princesse Sibilla de Luxembourg, princesse de Nassau née Weiller y Torlonia
la princesse Margaretha von and zu Liechtenstein née princesse de Luxembourg, princesse de Nassau
l'archiduc Michael d'Autriche
le prince Alvaro d'Orléans-Bourbon
Mre Philippe d'Albert de Luynes, 13ème duc de Luynes et de Chevreuse

Assistants at the ceremony were:
la princesse Marie Thérèse de Württemberg, Duchesse de Montpensier (grandmother)
la princesse Blanche d'Orléans, mademoiselle de Valois (aunt)
le prince Eudes d'Orléans, Duc d'Angoulême (uncle)
la princesse Marie-Liesse d'Orléans née De Rohan-Chabot (aunt)

The parents of the royal Infant declared: "Gaston was baptized in our parish church in Paris, Antoinette in Vienna, where we resided at the time. We are now located in Dreux, it was fitting that Louise-Marguerite was baptized in our parish church. The wish of Princess Philomena to see her daughter being surrounded by the Drouais (= the people of Dreux) during her entry into the Catholic Church has been fulfilled: many faithful were at Holy Mass yesterday morning".

The event was held in a fun and relaxed atmosphere but also with due solemnity. After the Mass and the end of the sacrament of baptism, the faithful were delighted with the offered dragées (sugary almond sweets, traditional for baptisms). Doña María-Magdalena de Tornos y Steinhart, sister of Princess Philomena, was introduced to M Olivier Marleix (the Representative for Eure-et-Loir), to M Gérard Hamel (the Mayor of Dreux) as well to anonymous parishioners.

Both the name and the birthplace of Princess Louise-Marguerite were well-chosen: this year is the 800th anniversary of the birth of Saint Louis (Louis IX de Bourbon, Roi de France). This King was married to Marguérite de Procence. And the Princess’ birthplace, Poissy, was also the birthplace of Saint Louis.

Oh yes, I forgot about Prince Jean's eldest sister whom married Prince Gundakar von und zu Liechtenstein. I already thought: I don't see Margaretha at all... only an unknown young girl. I stand corrected!

Thanks for the enlightment. I love it that the Prince and Princess keep their children connected with royalty and nobility.

Isn't it usual for catholics to have only one godfather and one godmother?

Yes, traditionally one godfather (parrain) and one godmother (marraine), these also have a role during the First Holy Communion and the Confirmation. So to see for all three children the godparents have been chosen from the maternal and paternal families, from other royal Houses and from friends (often the aristocracy).

Correction on the name of the Duc de Luynes, the full name is Philippe Jean Paul Marie Raymond d'Albert de Luynes Dunois, 17e duc de Chevreuse, 13e duc de Luynes. The father of the present Duke was the president of the Fondation Saint-Louis, created by the previous Comte de Paris. The foundation is aimed to preserve the patrimonium of the House d'Orléans.



The Duc de Luynes was also Pair de France, like in my nickname

Thanks to those who posted the photos and information on the christening. Little Princess Louise-Marguerite is adorable, as are her elder siblings. I love how everyone seemed to be delighted with her. I agree moonmaiden23, they are a lovely little family. I found it interesting that the priest lifted her up in the air, is that customary in France? I haven't seen that done at any other royal christenings in the past. IIRC in most christenings over here, the parents hold the child themselves whilst the vicar/priest pours the holy water over their head.

Very serene!!
"The young boy" would be Prince Gaston of Orléans, Princess Louise-Marguerite's elder brother. For future reference, the little girl is Princess Antoinette, Prince Gaston and Princess Louise-Marguerite's sister.

I had posted this information in my last post on this thread. I didn't realise that Alvaro is indeed a Prince - I haven't heard of him before.

I am not sure he is a Prince or not. The information comes from this site: La princesse Louise-Marguerite de France a été baptisée à Dreux

It is the same as with the De Bourbon de Parmes, for the Spaniards the last Duke of Parma was simply Don Carlos Hugo de Borbón-Parma y Borbón-Busset and that was it. No Prince and no HRH. For the Dutch and the Luxembourgian Court they are HRH Princes (Princesses) de Bourbon de Parme. The Dutch Royal House also used the titles Duke of Parma and Piacenza: https://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/nieuws...augustus-2010/

So maybe Don Alvaro is not considered royal in Spain, but his father was the 7th and his elder brother is the 8th Duke of Galliera. I think the French royalists consider him royal because he is a male line royal Bourbon descendant. His great-grandparents were the Infante Alfonso de Orleans y Borbón, 5th Duke of Galliera and Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Prince Gaston and Princess Antoinette helped inaugurate a playground in Dreux, France, where the family reside. According to the article, Princess Louise-Marguerite and the Duke and Duchess of Vendôme also attended, as well as the Mayor of Dreux:

Princess Louise-Marguerite is going to be hospitalised since she has to undergo surgery:

Préoccupation des ducs de Vendôme

I wonder what happened, it sounds quite serious if she has to be hospitalised for surgery. I hope little Princess Louise-Marguerite recovers quickly.

Thank you for the update, Elektra. It's good to hear that little Princess Louise-Marguerite has been discharged from hospital. It sounds like her surgery was quite serious, since on the Duke of Vendôme's website it is described as "une opération importante" ("a major operation").

The Duke of Vendome celebrated his fiftieth birthday in Dreux. In connection with his birthday, a mass took place at the Church of Saint Pierre de Dreux. The mass was followed by a reception at the Duke of Vendome's residence which was attended by his close friends and family.

Wonderful to see the Dauphin (Prince François, Comte de Clermont) and his sister Princess Blanche attending as well. That is so lovely, the family could have conveniently 'forget' to invite these two. They keep including the two, despite their disabilities. That is so admirable.

What I don't like: the birthday boy was surprised with a large cake, depicting the arms of the Dauphin. I know that Prince Henri first made his second son Jean Regent du Dauphin and years later suddenly bestowed him the title of Dauphin. There was no need for that. They are no reigning family and a restoration is not in sight. Out of politesse and respect for both the person as well the history, Prince Henri could have let his eldest son being the Dauphin, as is his royal birthright. The solution with Prince Jean being the Regent du Dauphin was perfect. Why the need to change?

Now I see Prince Jean cutting a cake with the arms of a Dauphin de France and no, he was imposting his elder brother's arms. I am sorry, these details do matter, to me at least. :)

The arms of a Dauphin de France:



Prince Jean should simply have continued with the arms of a Prince d'Orléans, which is the same arms as those of the Kings of France but then with a silver lambel to differentiate it from his father, the Chef de la Maison de France.


The arms of Orléans:

Prince François, the Dauphin, and Princess Blanche live in an institution in Switzerland. In the holidays and when there are special events, they always stay with their three siblings Prince Jean, Duc de Vendôme, Prince Eudes, Duc de Angoulême and Princess Marie of Liechtenstein.

They seem to go exceptionally well with their sister-in-law Princess Marie-Liesse, née de Rohan-Chabot (Duchesse de Angoulême). Maybe there is someone in the Household whom holds a special eye on the Dauphin and his sister Princess Blanche.
