Coincidentally, today (January 21) is also the anniversary of the execution of Louis XVI, isn't it ?

My condolences to the House of Orléans and to the French people.

Where are the members of the French Royal Family usually buried?

May he rest in piece.

For now the newspapers seem to have only the facebook message from the DUke of Vendôme to go by and not much other information.

Le comte de Paris Henri d'Orléans est mort

Is the cause of death known?

We saw him a few weeks ago. I never liked him. I wonder which Funerals he will have? Head of the family in its glory at Dreux ?, or privately ??
Will the Duchesse of Montpensier attend.

Blog Real 01-21-2019 12:24 PM

Will some reigning royal family members be present at the funeral? At least from nearby royal families like Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands or Monaco I believe they may be present.

An Ard Ri 01-21-2019 12:25 PM

May he rest in Peace.


Other than the chapelle Royale de Dreux is there another burial site used?

Saint Denis Basilica for the Bourbons, albeit not used anymore.
Dreux is the only "active" royal burial site in France, with the exception of the Imperial crypt in Ajaccio.

My guess is that the King of the Netherlands will be represented by his cousin, S.A.R. le prince Charles Xavier de Bourbon de Parme, Duc de Parme et de Plaisance.

I don't expect the Dutch royals to attend. I am not aware of any close bond between them. If they are represented, it would most likely be in the person of Carlos, who can do a double - both representing the Dutch royal family and the Bourbon-Parma's (like he did in Romania). Of course some family members of the Liechtenstein princely family will attend as the count's eldest daughter married a Liechtenstein prince. I also expect at least a representative of the Belgians (Astrid is godmother to Gaston) and most likely also from Luxembourg (Sibilla is godmother to Louise-Marguerite). I doubt Monaco will attend but who knows, maybe Albert decides to come over.

In addition, I expect many non-reigning houses such as the duke of Castro, the duke of Braganza, and representatives of former monarchies on the Balkan.

Blog Real 01-21-2019 01:06 PM

The Duke of Braganza was the right cousin of the Count of Paris. So you should go to the funeral.

Somebody 01-21-2019 01:10 PM

Should we expect the duke of Vendome to take on the title 'count of Paris' or will he remain 'duke of Vendome'? And what about prince Gaston?

Marengo 01-21-2019 01:26 PM

I expect that at an appropriate time prince Jean will start using the title count of Paris. And his eldest son could be made Count of Clermont, like his uncle and grandfather when they were heirs to the Orleans claim.

The last time a member of the Dutch RF attended an Orleans ceremony -as I can recall- was Pss Beatrix at the wedding of the count of Clermont to Duchess Marie Therese of Württemberg.

I believe the Infanta Cristina still attended an Orleans funeral (either of the late count or countess of Paris) but it would be nice if the Infanta Pilar could make it. I do expect somebody from Luxembourg and Belgium. Perhaps Prince Albert II and the empress Farah as well.
