Quite a crazy story...
Btw, Prince can be a name, my opinion it's terrible!
Princess Chantal of France, baroness Sambucy de Sorgue is a grand mother again. On April 23rd, her daughter Kildine gave birth to a daughter: Eulalie. Kildine is married to Antoine Stevenson and the couple already has two other children, Jean and Sarah.

The only royal guests I recognise are the count & countess of Paris and the count & countess of Evreux (Adelaide's parents). The count of Paris and his wife were strategically seated, so the Evreux (who are seperated) did not have to sit next to each other.... at least, that is a likely explanation.
The Royal family of the France are the great at their maintenance of their families. Their costume as well as behaviour are so organised. Princess Helena has a kindness and she is a lady of the principles which describes the best thing about the Royal families.
A couple of quick questions regarding the late Prince Thibault, Count of Le March (youngest child of the late Count of Paris).

I've read somewhere that his death in Central Africa at the age of 35 in 1983 was under mysterious circumstances (either a hunting accident, an illness or heart attack or even . . . murder).

I know he married non-dynastically and his younger son Louis-Philippe died as an infant (I think blood poisoning) . . and neither of them were entombed in the main Dreux chapel (they were put in a side chapel) by Henri (the elder), Count of Paris. Oookay . . . that's really disrespectful.
Prince Thibaut was considered as the rebel of the family; he didn't have (as most of his siblings) good relations with the late Count of Paris, and against his wish Thibaut married a commoner 7 years older than him, Marion Gordon-Orr. The marriage was considered unequal by the Count of Paris, who also refused to help financially his son after he married.

Thibaut and Marion had together two sons, Robert (the present Count of La Marche) and Louis-Philippe, who tragically died of sepsis aged 8 months, in 1980. The Count of Paris, who considered Thibaut's sons as non dynasts, didn't allow the burial of Louis-Philippe in the main crypt of St. Louis Chapel in Dreux, but only in a side chapel (where later was buried also Thibaut).

Thibaut and Marion worked firstly as writers, publishing some books, and later they opened an art gallery near Paris.
The death of his son was a hard bop for Thibaut; in 1981 he was involved in some scandal (I don't know what exactly, any informations would be very appreciated), he spent 14 months inprisoned waiting for the trial and then he was condemned to one year of jail.
After serving time, he moved to Central African Republic, where he worked organizing safaris for tourists.
On 23 march 1983 he was found dead; he was only 34, and wasn't suffering of any illness; officially he died of pericardial effusion, but this thesis didn't persuade his wife and his brothers, who soon maintained that Thibaut was murdered.

In 1989 an inquiry was conducted for clarifying whether the murder occurred or not; Thibaut's remains were exhumed for an autopsy, that showed that he wasn't suffering of any illness, disproving also the official thesis of the pericardial effusion; but at the same time, no elements confirming the thesis of the murder came out, so the inquire was closed.

After Thibaud's death, Marion moved to Thoiry with her son.
At the death of the Count of Paris in 1999, his successor Henri (the present Count of Paris) annulled the decision of his father about the marriages of his brothers, and confirmed the status of dynasts of his brothers Thibaut and Michel (the Count of Evreux), their wives and children.

Princess Chantal will have her own exposition in the town hall of the 8th arrondissement of Paris. She will show her recent works there from October 11th till the 22nd. The exhibition is called 'Arbres de Soleil'

Exposition Chantal de France à la mairie du 8ème arrondissement de Paris - La couronne

Noblesse & Royautes has an article and some pictures of the opening of the exposition. Apart from princess Chantal other nobles/royals that were seen are:

Baron François-Xavier de Sambucy de Sorgue, the count and countess of Paris, the count of Evreux, princess Adelaide d’Orléans, princess Nesrine Tousson, princess Tatiana Radziwill (daughter of Eugenie of Greece & Denmark), the vicount de Chévigny (husband of duchess Margarita of Württemberg).

This women although I like her she brought the bacon at home because of her work for Dior Spain and her name Beatrice d' Orleans and on a other hand she likes to be a grandmother.
Why this unnatural glamour pictures and no family pictures with her daughters children.
Thank you, Marengo for the continued updates on the doings of the Royal Families of France. Just wanted you to know that some of us stop by frequently to read the links and appreciate them very much.
