Very nice pictures, thanks, may I ask where you found the picture with Prince Jean Christophe??

The duchess of Castro picture is also nice, it bears a resemblence to her daughter Beatrice in my view :)

Frimousse, are you maybe able to identify the picture with Charles and the children, which I have send above?

I am not sure if the girl, sitting "on" Charles maybe Sophie or not?? The same with the girl on the right side? Is she maybe a friend of Charles children or maybe a niece of him? -Maybe a daughter of one of his two sisters??  

I will send the picture again that you see which one I mean

You are welcome Britt.25. It is taken from your beloved Point de Vue Magazine N° 2967 June 1st 2005.
I can't recognize the little girl on his laps...
prince Jean Christophe is definitely on the left, the girl on the right might be Princess Caroline, but her nose seems different now ??
Sorry dear Britt...

Thanks!! Are there more pictures of Jean Christ. in this magazine?

Here is the picture with CHarles and the children, which I had already send, are you able to identify the children?
Is the little girl maybe Sophie, his youngest daughter? and the girl on the right side??? Maybe Charles niece or simply a friend of his children???

Very nice, thanks and what about the Charles picture with the children? Sorry for the same question, but I would be very interested in the identification, maybe the girl on the right is a niece of Charles? Could be the daughter of his sister??

No, I don´t think on the right is Princess Caroline, she looks different, but somewhere this face reminds me a little of Charles sister Catherine. But I can also be wrong....
The girl maybe not Caroline, because Jean is younger than her and the girl there seems to be younger than Jean Christ. in my view...
Strange strange....

Did the Princess (Alix) Napoléon attend any of the Belgian royal weddings?

I ask this because I know that her husband went to his cousin Baudouin's funeral, and I didn't know if the Princess has been invited to any of the marriages of Albert's children.

The former spouses are also 5th cousins once removed, again through King Ferdinando I.
