Once upon a time, there was a prince. His name was Duarte and he was heir to the disestablished throne of the eldest European country: Portugal.

Although his life was a story full of struggles, in commitment to his people and to the heritage he had received from his ancestors...

...something was missing in the life of this lonely Prince.

He missed the love of someone he searched for 50 years; the love he once found in the eyes of a little girl he taught to swim in the warm waters of Angola; the love of a girl he was patiently waiting for…

That girl was named Isabel, and belonged to one of the most traditional families, descending from Afonso de Herédia, the knight who came to Portugal in the XV century.

And finally there it happened: the little girl, twenty-one years younger than her family's friend, grew up as a lovely young woman…

At last, they decided to get married on the 13th of May 1995.

The Prince could now introduce the beloved fiancée to his people, who were thrilled with the idea of a royal wedding, 85 years after the Proclamation of Republic.

The bullfight was the first pre-wedding festivity to take place.

Luis Correa de Sá Soveral, whose ancestors were intimately connected to the monarchy, dressed all the bullfighting arena of Campo Pequeno (a national monument with more than 110 years, built in the neo-arabic style) with the colours of the monarchic flag (blue and white).
