Do you mean the claims that the Parma's are the real claimants of the Spanish throne? Carlos and Felipe in a fist fight in the Plaza Mayor - winner takes all!

I hope it's televised.

HRH the Duke of Parma represents the Catholic tradition not very noticed in the future Spanish royal couple.

HRH Princess Marie-Therese of Bourbon Parme presented in Paris her book about the recent history of her Catholic Family:
Présentation du livre de Maria Theresa de Bourbon-Parme

All the members of the House of Bourbon-Parma are devouted Catholic.

A Catholic tradition made by deep family rifts and total lack of forgiveness which have been going on for decades, divorces, children born out of wedlock. Really, a family whose behaviours are very very Catholic.

I never understood why Princesses Cécile, Marie-Thérèse and Marie des Neiges are unmarried?

Declaration of HRH Duke Carlos Javier de Borbon Parma concerning his families relation to the spanish throne (in spanish):
Por Don Carlos

Article in dutch newspaper with a little background information (in dutch):
Carlos de Bourbon claimt recht op Spaanse troon - Buitenland - VK

As I understand it, it's not so much a claim to the throne, more a statement with regards to recent elections for European Parliament

The Volkskrant article refers to Prince Carlos' claim, as head of the Carlist movement, to the Spanish throne. According to the article, the prince is not putting forward a claim but has issued a statement that he denounces the current corruption that is endemic in Spain and that he is available to help 'his' country find the correct path towards prosperity in a pan-European context. On a historical note, the article also points out that the Carlist movement resulted from a 19th century disagreement about the right of females to inherit the Spanish throne; seeing as Prince Carlos only has daughters, perhaps he should not trumpet his case too loudly!

The Carlist claim is founded on nothing. The Duke of Parma should be proud on what he is, scion of one of the grandest royal dynasties ever and with a dazzling ancestry, holding a title (Duke of Parma) which is connected by one of the grandest Italian families (the Farneses) and has its fame in history. No more, no less. All the rest is pretty nonsense.

It was also very ungentlemanlike and a severe break of a given word as an aristocrat and Prince, that the late Duke of Parma first abandoned his Carlist claims in 1979 and became a naturalised Spanish citizen by royal decree of King Juan Carlos. Then somewhere in 2003 Prince Carlos Hugo re-asserted his Carlist claim. Most ungentlemanlike, he was breaking his own solemnly given word, given in person to King Juan Carlos. With this act he has lost my respect I must say. Too bad that his son follows him with this phantom thinking.
