Mrs Charlotte Valladares, nee Princess of Bourbon Parma should have given birth by now - on the wedding where both Charlotte's met, she had much bigger belly than the Duchess of Noto (who gave birth ten days ago).
 
From May 5th to May 9th, Princess Marie-Françoise attended the Order of Malta's pilgrimage to Lourdes, France. The Princess attended prayers and masses, meeting many people, including current leaders of the Order of Malta.

Next year the pilgrimage is scheduled from May 3rd to May 7th and the presence of the Princess is confirmed. Nice to see Princess Marie-Françoise! She's 95 now!

An engagement: Princess Elisabeth of Bourbon Parma, daughter of Prince Charles-Emmanuel and Constance de Ravinel, is engaged to a man named Xavier Denis.

Mr. Denis is working in finance. They are both living in Brussels.

The article shows photos at the engagement party in Spa, Belgium where Mr. Denis was raised.

The wedding will be in July in Normandy.

Lovely news. I imagine Zita is for the empress. Prince Jaime's daughter is also named that way. I suppose Amélie is for the maternal grandmother, the Hon. Amelia Drummond, and Constance for the paternal one.
 
:previous:

Apparently they discovered that Queen Sybilla of Jerusalem had a father, King Amaury. I imagine it has played a role in selecting the name? Though the text is behind paywall before it is explained why the fact was mentioned.

Also Amaury's youngest sister is named Zita, so perhaps the newborn Princess was named after her aunt, rather than after the late Empress.
 
Congrats to the parents and wider family! Wow, little Sybille has lots of hair!

I don't really understand why you would want to give a girl a boy's name (Joseph) but I guess for Catholic families that is less strange as many boys are also named Marie/Maria.

The newborn's first name, Sybille, could also be a reference to Amaury's paternal aunt, Princess Sybille of Bourbon-Parma (b.1954), the only one among Charles-Emmanuel's full sibilings who is still alive (he has half-sibilings on his father's side: certainly Amélie of Bourbon-Parma, and Serge and Hélène "of Yugoslavia" are also biological children of the late Prince Michel, by all accounts).

It's also the case, for example, of Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz of Belgium's children, who bear their godparents' names, including the one of the godparent of the opposite gender. For example, Prince Amedeo and Prince Joachim have, respectively, "Paola" and "Isabelle" among their given names, after their godmothers (maternal grandmother and paternal aunt)
