Message of December 1, 2020 from D. Duarte, Duke of Bragança.

The Dukes of Bragança today gave an interview to the TVI program "Dois às 10" where they talked about their wedding day, and their life, among other issues.

The interview also included testimonies from his three children, Infante Dom Afonso de Bragança, Infanta Dona Maria Francisca de Bragança and Infante Dom Dinis de Bragança.

The three praised the parents and left messages of admiration and pride to the parents.
Interesting. The children seem friendly, although naturally nervous for the camera. The daughter is the most natural and lively. She praised the working ethic of her mother and said that her father was more 'passive' in the house.

The Duchess said that on her wedding day -contrary to custom- she put her veil up. It calmed her nerves for the day and she says that she thought people should be able to see her as so many spectators had turned up. The television presentors seem to remember the wedding as a natiopnal event, as would be the case in a reigning monarchy.

The Duchess refused the first marriage request of the duke, wanting more time to make a decision.

The Royal Association of Porto – in conjunction with the Royal Associations of Braga, Viana do Castelo and Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro – organized the 1st Tertúlia “Monarquia do Norte”, on the 17th, in a restaurant in Parque da Cidade from Porto.

The guest speaker was Tomás Moreira, who made us all think about the theme “Monarchy in Portugal: the Next Day”.
The aim was to debate what needs to be done to bring about the restoration of the desired Monarchy, and what needs to be developed next so that there is a true Head of State, a King!
At the end of the get-together, the participants were joined at dinner by Dom Duarte, Duque of Bragança.

The Duke of Bragança believes in a theory according to which the navigator was born in Alentejo, as a bastard son of the Duke of Beja. But the most documented and credible historiography belies the thesis - completely

D.Duarte de Bragança sympathizes with the theory of Christopher Columbus being Portuguese,” Carlos Evaristo, an archaeologist specializing in sacred relics and medieval sacred iconography, and president of the Oureana Foundation, tells VISÃO. The archaeologist adds that the pretender to the Portuguese throne, through the D. Manuel II Foundation, over which he presides, finances the costs of the national component of the Columbus Project.

Through DNA tests, that project tries to prove that the browser was Portuguese or “Iberian”. The epicenter is in the University of Granada and in Professor José Lorente Acosta, who heads the research team that brings together entities from various countries.
D.Duarte, Duke of Bragança, received a delegation representing the direction of the Royal Association of Lisbon.

The cordial conversation discussed the projects of this Royal Association for the next three years and the concerns of the Duke of Bragança with the threat of a serious social and economic crisis in the post-pandemic period.
