Will her title be Duchess de Vendome after the marriage? Will he take a new title?

I don't think...When his brother Eudes married Marie-Liesse, they maintein the title that he bore before the marriage...

She is no aristocrat, she is a commoner

hola mentions that philomena was introduced in society at the gala during the reopening of the petit trianon in versaillles. the duke and duchess of anjou were also present. they mention that philomena was the only one who attracted "all attention" due to her elegance and distinction.

she is graddaughter of juan de tornos, aide for the count of barcelona in estoril and her mother's family is austrian. she also speaks 4 languages (french, english, spanish, german) to perfection. her family lives in vienna.

He´s already 43. How old is she?

amedea 12-07-2008 08:30 PM

I'm horryfied by this news.. she's not royal (first time for an orleanist pretender)! and it seems it will be a dinastic marriage! I think Jean had to learn from his cousins Wurttemberg and Savoy!

Wedding of Jean Duc de Vendome
Refering to the French Bord , Noblesse et Royautés, the Wedding of Prince Jean will be on May 2sd at the Castle of Amboise.

sorry to contradict but it seems it is going to take place on the 9th of may and no place has been decided yet.

emmeleia 12-12-2008 10:55 AM

Are there any photos or news of the bride-to-be?

Very good choice if it's the castle of Amboise. I visited it few years ago and it's a very beautiful castle.
It's a very nice place for a royal wedding.

maria-olivia 12-13-2008 09:34 AM

The Castle of Amboise was the Orlean's until ??
Referring to the French Forum "Noblesse et Royautés " , when Prince Jean was first engaged , the wedding should have been at ND de Chartres and the Countess de Paris should have given a Ball at Amboise's Castle.
But Vincent , item 34 , said that the date of May the 2 nd for the wedding is not sure and the place also. So we have to wait..

Point de Vue magazine has just devoted to the engagement a very small article with a little pic. Sign of the times... a few years ago they would have given the event a lot of pages.... that's why I don't buy it any longer

pamk 12-13-2008 10:12 PM

Can't believe that Point de Vue would not cover this impending marriage with bigger
article - guess there was just too much "breath-taking" news on the Sarkozy family that "deserved" big coverage!

maria-olivia 12-14-2008 08:43 AM

This week , the Point de Vue sold in Belgium has the whole front page with the wedding of Marie-Christine and Rodolphe..(no Sarko no Dathi)

V.F.H.78 12-14-2008 10:12 AM

Yes. Six pages for the wedding of Archduchess Marie-Christine of Austria and Count Rodolphe of Limburg Stirum and a double page for the engagement of Jean the Duke of Vendôme and Philomena de Tornos.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 12:22 AM.
