May I asked what happened with his parents? What was the problem about?

A few weeks ago, the Duke and Duchess of Vendome with their son Prince Gaston
made a trip to Lebanon. The main reason had been an invitation to the International
Debutante Ball on November 13, but they also met with the President of the Republic
HE Mr. Michel Sleiman and visited several famous sites. Some pics can be found on
the family's website:

And here are two pics of the couple attending the ball:

Cool

Thank you to Iceflower and Princess Robijin for the pictures. The Duchess is becoming more beautiful every time I see her and Gaston is just the cutest little boy. What a gorgeous family.

They are attractive, modern - and pretty much indistinguishable from many other tourists or visitors to palaces. I like that. They also seem happy.

I'm curious as to why they went to support the International Debutante Ball. I know that Debutante organizations have funds and spend money to bring honored guests to their events, but perhaps the Duke and Duchess are supporters for reasons of their own? Here in America, the Debutantes are among the very few people who still teach etiquette (and try to control the persons with whom their children associate, dance and take refreshment). It does seem a very cultured thing to do. The organization isn't nearly as prominent here as it was in the 50's and early 60's.

Does France still have Debutante Balls and orders?

There is still a "Bal des Débutantes" in France but now you have as débutante Alain Delon's daughter. they are still in white and long white gloves. I don't know where and when unfortunately.

These photos are so sweet! I can't pick the best from the gallery - the Prince and the animals look so admirable together!

My favourite one is the pic of Gaston standing next to that jumbo dog
I can't remember the name of that breed of dog, can anyone else? But
you are right, all of them are really sweet, must have been an exciting day
for the little prince!

The article from Gens du Monde says that the dogs are "lévriers irlandais" ... if I am not mistaken, Irish greyhounds, apparently the largest dogs in the world.

He is adorable, although he looks a bit reserved about taking whatever bit of food that seems to be (showing discerning taste already, what a darling boy).

The dog looks like an Irish Wolfhound. Gaston gets cuter by the day. Thanks iceflower.

Thanks a lot claypoint2 and Katrianna for letting me know about the breed of dog,
now I remember it myself as well. Impressing dog not only in direct comparison to
a little child..

It is rather strange to see Prince Jean in Texas but he went there to speak about French history.

Jean is right in visiting places in the US, partly because of the Francophonie - French is still spoken in Louisiana, Québec and other similar places.

There are 64 French-speaking countries.
