Prince Charles-Philippe d'Orléans, Diana, Dss of Cadaval and Family: Feb 2008-
 
This thread is to discuss the current events of Prince Charles-Philippe d'Orleans, duc d'Anjou and Diana, Duchess of Cadaval.

The Duchess is always with a huge smile. Imo, she is a very nice and elegant person. I always love her jewelry. Sadly her earrings are not clear in the pics. The ring seems beautiful!

Moonmaiden23 04-25-2008 09:45 PM

I love these two. I have read some criticism of them on other Forums, particularly the Prince. But this criticism is never borne out by the interviews and articles I read about him. He appears idealistic, romantic and kind. And yes very well aware of and very proud of his Orleans lineage. But there is not a thing wrong with that, in my opinion.

I can't wait for the wedding!

Alison20 04-25-2008 10:13 PM

I must say that I find them a very sympathetic and good-looking couple.

I am looking forward to hearing a lot about their up-coming wedding, and wish them well for the future.

Marengo 04-26-2008 09:01 AM

Wasn't he in some shady business with orders and such, and even arrested for a while by the police? Much to the joy of the legetimists of course, who support the other duke of Anjou.

Same here! :wub:I just cant wait for it and to see the dress of the bride and all the guests. The Prince was not the only one who faced criticism. Diana was involved in some polemics with her step sister due to the Title of Duchess of Cadaval. But, imo, the charm of the couple is superior to all those things.

Regina 05-10-2008 08:26 PM

The Couple was in New York, attending a Gala event of Foundation Saint-Lazare. This NGO is presided by the Prince and its main goal is to help to find ways to resolve the lack of water in certain countries.

The gala ceremony took place in Pierre Hotel

The couple also took the chance to walk in the streets of NY and have some romantic days together. The article said the Duchess visited several Bridal shops, where she tried several wedding dresses. I find it strange because she is going to marry two moths from now... how come she doesnt have her Dress already? :ohmy:

Diane and Charles-Phillipe went to Cambodja to camaign against landmines, this weeks Point de Vue has a rather extensive article about the visit, with some lovely pictures of the two.

Regina 06-04-2008 06:59 PM

The couple was received by the King of Cambodja.
The Duchess of Cadaval was very elegant and confident as usual. :flowers:

Article (in French)

The main points of this visit was to discuss the historical links between France and Cambodja, and the fight against the anti-personnel mines.

The King received the Order of Saint-Lazare by the generous help he has been given to his people since the beggining of his reign.

The Prince and the duchess of Cadaval were accompanied by a delegation of Saint-Lazare and HAMAP Health, and they will remain ten days in the country.

Moonmaiden23 06-04-2008 08:19 PM

Charles and Diana have made several of these types of goodwill humanitarian missions. There was one to Serbia last year and another to Ethiopa a few months ago. I like this...I hope they are setting the tone for how their marriage is going to be. They seem to be a genuinely involved and caring couple, and i really don't want to believe that they simply love the publicity. These are the types of peope who ONCE graced the cover of Point de Vue...back when it was a real quality magazine.

There's will be the first truly Royal wedding Europe has had in a long time. I can't wait!

A couple of months ago I posted TV reportage about some Portuguese nobles... Diana was one of the noblers featured in the piece. She showed a bit of her palace and its church (where the wedding ceremony is going to take place):
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/760210-post26.html

I don't know them, so I can't really have an opinion, but somehow they both appear as incredibly shallow to me... anyway, yes, I'm soooo looking forward to see the wedding photos! Don't we just love a royal wedding? ;)

A BIG thank you, Elsa, for the great pictures you shared!

In some pictures, Diane looks so much as her mother, Claudine.

In this picture she's with António Homem Cardoso, the official photographer of Dom Duarte and his family.

Diane looks so much more natural than Charles-Philippe. It doesn't mean he looks fake, but his eyes are always so stared that his face doesn't transmit the same in love facial expression of Diane.

How great that both of them are pure Royals. I am glad she is a Portuguese. Can't wait for the wedding too. :flowers:

Marengo 06-25-2008 08:25 AM

It seems Charles-Phillipe has issues with several members of his family due to his chairmanship of the order of St. Lazare. I think there was some shady business going on which resulted in him being arrested for a while, a year ago or so.
Apart from theat he also recognises the duke of Castro as the head of the house of the Two-Sicilies and not his own uncle, the duke of Calabria!

And added to that, he featured in the french version of 'I am a celebrity...get me out of here'.

But he was desperatly in need of publicity... I guess. :rolleyes:

You are entirely right. He belongs to a younger branch. He is nothing. He wants to become: "the Caliph instead of the Calilph".

Regina, the photos are GORGEOUS! Thanks for sharing! The Elie Saab shot especially is beautifully coordinated with the Évora scenary :)

Another princess playing as a model... where have I seen this before?

Moonmaiden23 07-01-2008 09:17 PM

They really do make a striking couple....they LOOK like a Prince and Princess in my opinion!

The Orleans all have those rather striking, piercing blue eyes. It's the family's most remarkable trait...even many of the little nephews and nieces have those eyes.

I hope C-P keeps off the weight he lost for his wedding because he has a tendency to get kind of chubby. He looks very handsome right now.

He was "inteviewed" by the police not because his position of Grand Master of the Order of St-Lazarus but for a matter linked with his work. The Order of St Lazarus is now under the protection of C-P Uncle, Count of Paris, as Head of the Royal House of France.

He recognises Charles de Bourbon living in Rome (and not Carlos de Borbon living in Madrid) as Head of the House of The Two Sicilies because all the Family of France do the same: it was Charles-Philippe's grandfather (the late Count of Paris) to recognise Don Ferdinando de Bourbon (Carlo's father, who died some months ago) as Head of the House.

As if any of them is ever going to reign again......Charles de Bourbon (Duke of Castro?) married well and Carlos lives a peaceful life in Spain.......
This Charles (the groom) will hopefully live in splendour in the Cadaval Palace and everyone will be happy. (Right?)

Yes, she knows. Diana seems not to care about her husband's problems with Justice, I wonder if her mother shares the same feelings.

Sol (Portuguese newspaper) of this last saturday had an articles saying that at the wedding, some Diana's relatives (didn't mention names) were openly critisizing Charles's past.

Marengo 07-04-2008 04:39 AM

Well it was said some relatives stayed away from the wedding because of that, esp. his involvement with the St. Lazare knights (which was rather shady according to some); though most who stayed away did so due to the classic Orleans-feuds I suppose.

Did the prince ever get convicted btw? I don't remember the outcome...

I don't Claudine has much of a moral standing to judge others, considering the way she dealt with her late husbands older children.

Menarue 07-04-2008 05:01 AM

I think that Diana de Cadaval looks very happy, she is a very beautiful young lady. She wanted to be a Duchess and her mother wanted her to be too and now she is HRH so what more could they want?
If Rosalinda is put out I think she has every right to be. Much as I admire and respect D. Duarte I will never understand his position over the dispute of thie title of Duchess of Cadaval.

In my personal opinion, the reason was because D. Duarte is Diana's Godfather and because they were (and still are of course) very close friends, and it was difficult (or impossible) to D. Duarte to say "no" to Claudine's ambitions. To stay in terms with his conscience, Duarte "created" a new title for Rosalinda: Duchess of Cadaval-Guerrand-Hermès...

Marengo 07-04-2008 05:38 AM

Not to kill an interesting discussion, but there is a thread about the Cadaval family (& their dispute) in the Portuguese-Brazilian forum, here. We kept the title dispute there as it is more a Portuguese matter.

It is correct what you write, the wedding was not attended by many Royals, of course CP is not the son of the Head of the House but the Count of Paris is the uncle.
The Order of St Lazarus: the count of Paris has is the protector of the Order but there is a dispute concerning this Order, 3 branches (!), the one of CP, the one of the Duke of Sevilla and another Maltese...It is a game of "power" among the people ruling the 3 branches.
The history of this Order is not very clear, it was closed by a Pope, but the French branch merged with another French Order, this is the reason why the count of Paris protects it...
There are as for other orders supportes of each of the 3 branches...

It is the Roman Temple of Evora. It is a symbol of Evora and it was classified as World Heritage site by Unesco.

It is often called Temple of Diana (Roman goddess). The temple was built in honour of Emperor Augustus in the 1st century AD. in the main public square (Forum) of Évora.

Thank you Regina very much. Looks like Evora should be a day trip from Lisbon. Seems like a very interesting place to visit. Thanks again

JSP 07-27-2008 01:37 PM

Évora
 
Évora is one of my favourite towns in Portugal.
It is about 1 1/2 hours from Lisbon by motorway.
Its historic center is quite well preserved and you can find many churches - the Cathedral where Charles-Philippe and Diana got married, and the famous Bones Chapel f.i. - and palaces.
Home of some of the best (and more expensive ) hotels such as Hotel da Cartucha or Pousada dos Lóios and restaurants - Fialho, Cozinha de Santo Humberto, A Tasquinha do Oliveira, Luar de Janeiro.
Try to go there on a market day at Rossio de São Braz for the local products and handicrafts.

Odette 07-27-2008 04:27 PM

Thank you JSP. I checked my schedule I will be in Lisbon on November 13, and I will make sure I travel to Evora.
This is a silly question but is Diana's Palace open to the public? It will be so nice to visit the Cathedral where the wedding took place. Hopefully I will see her someplace.
Are they living in Evora now??

Regina 07-27-2008 08:33 PM

Yes, the couple is living in Evora now.

I am not sure but I think only the first floor rooms can be visited by the public. You can admire family portraits, religious art and manuscripts. The palace is next-door to the Loios Convent and inside the palace yard there is a restaurant called Jardim do Paço

Odette 07-27-2008 10:20 PM

Thanks Regina........I am on my way.........They may even sell those wedding fans in the gift shop. They must have a gift shop if there is a restaurant.......That will be so grand......I love palaces, especially when the owners still occupy part of the structure.....

Yes, I agree they look very happy :smile:

Moonmaiden23 10-03-2008 07:11 PM

Hmm...she doesn't look like she gained weight at all to me. I have seen photos of her where she looked much heavier than in that pic.

In any case, the new Princess has never been skinny and I don't think she ever will be. She has a body type similar to that of her mother, the duchess Claudine with a tendency to have heavy hips and thighs.

She IS glowing however...they make a smashing couple!

Regina 12-12-2008 07:09 PM

In this interview to Caras magazine, the couple says they are living a very happy marriage. This Christmas will be special since it is the first one they spent together.
Diana said they are living more time in Portugal than in France and that is a good thing in her opinion because that allows them to spend more time together with each other.

As Elsa said, a child is in their plans for this next year. They want to give to their children a Christian education and give special importance to values as work, respect, sharing, duty and honour.

They mentioned their experience of helping the poor in third world countries as the most beautiful experiences they had.

They wish love, and peace to everyone especially those who are extremely poor and lonely.

Wow! This is the most relaxed that I have seen him look - usually Charles has very carefully fixed hair and seems a bit formal.
A very fun loving and friendly looking couple.

Elsa M. 12-14-2008 01:17 PM

Funny photos! Thanks for scanning, Regina! :)
Do you know where were they taken?

What love can to do with the man?:biggrin:

I was standing next to them yesterday and they looked so happy together a lovely couple, they had just done some Christmas shopping. His eyes are even more blue than in the photographs and she is a very beautiful young woman.

At the beginning of the interview,it is said the Prince and Princess d'Orléans celebrated 6 months of a happy marriage in Sahara Desert (Morocco).

They were there invited by King Mohammed VI, to participate in the Moussem de tan-Tan, a Berber Festival.

Ah manantiz! Thank you so much for the videos! :flowers: :flowers: I know I'll watch the first one again again. :biggrin:
They were so in love on the wedding day. I think Diana was more nervous and emotional than the prince but they were both truly happy, IMO.

Lucky girl Menarue......! Imagine standing next to them and see them from so close up.
A lot of people are not too photogenic and they do not take good photos. I suppose the prince is one of them.:flowers:

This is so beautiful...I was smiling the whole way through! How charming was it when they both began giggling during the exchange of vows? It was obviously very warm in the Cathedral because the Prince was visibly perspiring. But oh wow he is so handsome! And Diana's gown looks so much lovelier live in the video than it does in the still photos, which doesn't quite do it justice.

They are a magnificent young couple. Thanks so much for providing this!

They say that a child is already in their plans.

Here's the whole interview:

They were invited by the King of Morocco to participate in the Moussem de Tan-Tan, in order to promote the traditional arts and to strengthen the ties between France and Morocco.

I saw them just about a week ago buying presents from Vista Alegre the beautiful china shop. A very good looking couple they are too.

Prince and Princess d'Orleans attended a dinner organized by the Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs. The event took place in Grande Real Villa Itália (Cascais, Portugal).

Caras magazine interviewed the royal couple. Both said they feel delighted with these 7 months of marriage. Diana said they are just a couple as many others, the only difference is that they have official events to attend sometimes.
Charles-Philippe expressed a big wish to have many children with Diana.

A lovely couple, IMO. :flowers:

Wonderful couple. I like it a lot.

I always liked the Royal Family of France..even if France is not a Kingdom any more! :biggrin:

Wow! Diana of Cadaval is so pretty on these pictures! I especially like the second one (on the throne).

Another link to CARAS website with a better pic of Diana of Cadaval : Diana de Cadaval vai estrear-se como colaboradora da CARAS

Her first interview for CARAS magazine will be with Princess Michael of Kent.

Regina 03-24-2009 03:25 PM

Thanks Elsa, for scanning the pictures!

I love her dress, Diana looks really well in these pictures.

In this interview, Diana says she's writing an historical romance about a Portuguese queen. The book will be available in book-shops next year.

Duchess Diana, accompanied by her husband, Prince Charles-Phillippe, attended yesterday the canonization of D. Nuno Álvares Pereira, and represented the family at the main altar of the Vatican's St. Peter's square.
Meanwhile, the Prince (as the Grand Master of the Order of Malta) was also one of the 50 guests who attended the dinner hosted by the Count of Ataíde, D. Augusto de Albuquerque Athayde, in the Circolo Caccia (a roman private club for nobles).

Oh I love Charles-Philippe and Diana...my current favorite royal couple.

I love reading about them.

ETA: Why is she called "Duchess Diana?" It sounds awkward, I don't like it at all. Isn't her name now HRH Princess Diana, Duchesse de Cadaval?

Regina 05-19-2009 07:32 PM

Yes, me too, I love reading about them. I hope Caras magazine brings soon another interview made by Diana. I wonder who will be her next guest :)

Diana is called Duchess Diana because she is a Duchess (Duchess of Cadaval) in her own right.

Elsa M. 06-14-2009 06:42 PM

Princess Diana expressed her grief for the death of Prince Pedro Luiz d'Orléans e Bragança, at the plane accident. See it here:

Regina 06-20-2009 07:34 PM

The first Caras' interview made by Diana was in March. The magazine said she would make this kind of interviews with regularity. We're already in June and no more interviews since the first one. I wonder if she is still working for the magazine as a collaborator :confused:
