Princess Olga, since you are obviously a stickler, I will note that Ecuador (the country of birth of Marie-Chantal's mother) is not in Central America but in South America.

A modest background?? I'm curious about your sources, because you are seriously misinformed. Marie-Chantal's father, Robert Warren Miller, is an Ivy League-educated billionaire who claims several Mayflower ancestors (which is as "old" and prestigious as you can get in the United States). He and his wife are based in Hong Kong but also have houses in London, Paris, New York, and Gstaad. Marie-Chantal was educated at Le Rosey in Switzerland, one of the most prestigious boarding schools in the world. If that's what's you call modest, well....

It was not a comment about Marie-Chantal,but about her mother...and no matter how rich she is,her background is modest compared to any royal or noble...it's about something money can't buy-noble ancestry!

On the other hand you got the point-Marie-Chantal is very educated,behaves very well and has style!

You're right, Marc23. I read Quin's comment too quickly and thought that it was in reference to M-C, not her mother. Apologies....

Do you mean the descendants of the Aztec and Inca emperors, such as Montezuma, are not of royal blood?
Try to read some serious researches on the native royal families of South America, for example Naso people (a.k.a. Teribe) in Panama.

Maxima and Maria Theresa seem to be getting the royal lifestyle well and have fit perfectly into their roles. They are both of Latin decent but it will continue through their children.

Just how many Latin American royals are there because I consider them to have a palace.

royalty is defined by position in a particular society. NOT by any building or type of building it might use

At least these Latin princesses have something in common now with the Spanish royal family and have princesses that speak the native tongue of the Spanish royal family.

Queen Silvia of Sweden is considered half Brazilian because her mother was a Brazilian of aristocratic Portuguese descent.

The Countess of Paris (1911–2003), née Princess Isabel de Orleans e Bragança, was the daughter of the Brazilian Pedro de Alcântara de Orleans e Bragança, Prince of Grão Para. Prince Pedro was the heir, after his mother Isabel, Princess Imperial of Brazil, to the throne of his grandfather, Emperor Pedro II of Brazil, until the empire's abolition. He also renounced his rights to the throne of Brazil on 30 October 1908 when he married Countess Elisabeth Dobržensky de Dobrženicz who, although a noblewoman of the kingdom of Bohemia, did not belong to a royal dynasty.

What is interesting here is that the beautiful Bragança tiara that now belongs to Sweden and is the most beautiful tiara Queen Silvia wears, was given by Emperor Pedro I of Brazil (also King Pedro IV of Portugal) - Great Grandfather of the Countess of Paris's father) to his second wife, Empress Amélie of Brazil. Empress Amélie died without children and left the tiara to her sister, Queen Josephine of Sweden.
So now, the Brazilian tiara belongs to a half Brazilian Queen.

Mexico's first emperor was Emperor Agustin I of the House of Iturbide.. the Iturbides are Spanish nobles which cam from the Navarre region of Spain.. his wife was Empress Ana Maria, which is a descendant of the House of Tagle from her maternal side.. the tagles were one of the oldest families in Spain and it was said that they were founded by a knight named Don sancho who fought for King Pelayo during the Age of the Reconquista and later married the king's daughter.. the House of iturbide later intermarried with the Counts von Gotzen and their current head is Count Maximiliano Gustav Albrecht Richard Agustin von Goetzen Iturbide.. the Tagle heiress, Doña Maria del Mar Alvarez de Abreu y Rodriguez de Albuerne, 8th Marquesa of Altamira, granddaughter of Don Manuel Rodriguez de Albuerne y Pérez de Tagle, 5th Marquis of Altamira married Carlos María O'Donnell y Joris, a member of the O'Donnell Dynasty of Ireland, and their son was Carlos O'Donnell, 2nd Duke of Tetuan.. current head is Hugo O'Donnell, 7th Duke of Tetuan..
