Princess Teresa of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies has another granddaughter. Her daughter Delia Moreno y de Borbón and Álvaro de Ledesma Sanchiz got a girl on 5 January. The name of the girl is still unknown.

Princess Teresa is married to Don Iñigo Moreno y de Arteaga, marques of Laula, and is the eldest sister of Infante Carlos of Spain, Duke of Calabria.

A question about Infante Don Carlos: isn't his title of Infante of Spain in contraddiction with the 1759 Pragmatic Sanction of Charles III, if he retains his Two Sicilian titles?

In 1983, the heads of the French (Alphonse of Bourbon, duke of Anjou and of Cadiz) and Spanish (king Juan-Carlos) royal houses (and of Parma ducal house? Not sure) published (in italian, later in spanish with a change in the order of signatures...) a joint statement, asserting that the head of the Two-Sicilies royal house, was the infant don Carlos.

It is not a proof of his legitimity, some kings of France or Spain have already failed in finding the right heir of a neighbour kingdom, but this shows the position of king Juan-Carlos.

MAfan if you scroll on this link I am posting from another member you will see what your asking about is being mention in this written article.
There seems to be a problem with some royal houses having two people claim the headship I hope this gets resolved and quick.

As far as I know, she is still married since 1978 to Jacques Cochin.
It is better to be called Princesse de Bourbon-Siciles than Madame Jacques Cochin.
She and her sister ex princess Napoleon are at all the Paris's evenings.
As far as I know, she is still married since 1978 to Jacques Cochin.

Princess Anne of Bourbon-Two Sicilies and Jacques Cochin are divorced.

The man she is frequently seen in the company of these days is named Alex Ursulet, a lawyer.
I didn't know that Alex Ursulet was Princess Anne of Bourbon-Two Sicilies's lover (or maybe not...).

I believe that the lady attended was the sister of the duke of Castro and not the wife of the duke of Calabria. Confusing since both ladies can be called Anne of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies. Anyway, the Anne on the picture was formerly married to prince Charles Napoleon.

The Princess who was married to Charles Napoleon is Beatrice, not Anne; and the one of the picture at the left seems indeed Beatrice.
You are right, Anne is the younger sister who married a French baron. Beatrice is often in magazines like Point de Vue.
the sisters...
Princess Beatrice - born 1950, formerly married to Charles, Prince Napoléon
Princess Anne - born 1957, married to Jacques Cochin of the Barons Cochin (may or may not be divorced - sources differ)
All the children of the Duke of Noto are dynasts?
It appears not. The children of Prince Pedro, Duke of Noto, aren't included in lists of the Two Sicilies succession.

If his wife, Sofia Landaluce y Melgareja, is granted "dynastic suitability" after the event, a further problem arises as their first-born son Jaime arrived in 1993, 7 or 8 years prior to his parent's marriage. Juan Pedro, born in 2003, may end up as Pedro's dynastic heir, otherwise succesion falls to the rival claimant, Prince Charles, Duke of Castro. Since Charles has (currently) two daughters, the line of Prince Antoine look destined to eventually assume the undisputed Headship of the Royal House.
