Indeed, it is a very interesting site! Princess Clementine has always struck me as very much a lady...she looked so dignified, even in her later years.

*Also, following is a link to some striking pictures of Prince Jean Christophe Napoleon. They were taken at the 2008 mass that was held at Farnborough Abbey to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Napoleon III. In the last photo the Prince can be seen with his grandmother, the Princess Napoleon, and his uncle, Prince Jerome Napoleon. I believe Princess Caroline Napoleon attended as well.

*Prince Jean Christophe was a guest at the 6 Dec 2008 wedding of his cousin Archduchess Marie Christine of Austria to Comte Rodolphe de Limburg-Stirum.

*On December 9th, the Princess Napoleon assisted the Prince d'Essling in handing out the Fondation Napoleon History Grand Prix awards.

*And here (at the very bottom of the website) can be seen the Prince Napoleon and Princess Napoleon at the 2007 Bicentenaire de la Cour des comptes. President Sarkozy was also present.

Hello!
Thank you very much for collecting all those great links and for posting them here!! The articles are great and the pictures as well..!
He has become very impressing, this young Prince, wonderful in his looks and also- as it seems like- much connected with the role of his family . I hope he will be - even when in a modern way- a good representative of his family, even in the 21th century- in future...!
I wonder a bit, why his father wasn't present there, maybe he is very busy with other things, I don't know. Or is it just the case that we don't see him on the pictures and he was there? I have to read though the articles more carefully...when more time.
I must confess I saw Charles on recent photos of the site belgapicture, and maybe it's only my impression, but he seems somewhere changed to me, he looks almost a bit too thin now or more slim than before. I hope he is well, maybe it's just that he has too much stress.... Jean Christophe is very fine like this.
Not that the appearance is that important for me, I just wonder, why Charles somewhere appeared different to me. What do others think?

Thank you! I already got the info by a friendly member of this board...It's interesting, as I didn't know that Princess Caroline was close to any male royal and that she would already marry in the coming time. But well, she is of that age, where she is supposed to marry. It is only a little surprise that he is much older than her, already at the End of his thirtees...well yes, for me it would be too old, I think.
It would be interesting to see the couple, how this man looks like. From her looking I think Caroline will be a very beautiful bride. I hope, it's really the right husband for her, and that they will have a happy family in future....I hope there will be pics in September!! :-))

Dear Britta ~ It seems to me that Charles is not usually present at events where his mother is also in attendance. Perhaps this has something to do with the lingering parental disapproval over Charles's divorce and remarriage? I suppose we will never know for sure! But it does indeed appear that the Princess Napoleon is on very good terms with her ex-daughter-in-law, Princess Beatrice of the Two Sicilies.

This might be of some interest...the Comte de Witt has created a nicely-done website for the Napoleon Museum, which is housed in the Chateau de la Pommerie: http://www.musee-napoleon.fr/Home-1-en.html

...Oh I haven't been here for such a long time! Thank you so much for the link to the new page of the Pommerie museum. Yes, it must be very interesting and the page is created new as I see. Great stuff there, I wished to go there once...!!!
It's interesting that you noticed that Charles and his mother are not very often together on events anymore! I remember older pictures, where they were indeed together, but maybe there is a reason that the relationship of them has become more difficult or has changed. A pity, maybe you are right, does the Princess Napoleon have a very close relationship to Beatrice?
It could be the reason, if Charles is now closer to his second family.
By the way....do you know about new political activities...?? I missed very much in the last time, I think :(

Unfortunately the family of Princess Caroline Napoleon announced sometime ago that it was stirctly a family affair, and that no pictures would be realesed, which is a shame.

It's really a pity, because the marriage of her relatives were all documentated with pictures. I have much of the old Point de Vue magazines with pictures of the marriages of her aunts (sisters of Charles Napoléon) ecc, I don't understand why they are now so strict with this and don't want to release any pictures. We must respect it, but it's a bit strange, as I always thought Charles and his family are quite modern and open. But some things are strange, I also had a quite strange experience in that connection some years ago: I once had a little exchange with one of Charles Napoléon's nieces (and therefore a cousin of Caroline) and after some letters she broke the contact and told me her family does not want it! It made me very sad, it's strange and a pity!

I know this is a fairly naive question..but are the Bonapartes still ruling France? Napoleon III never abdicated or renounced his title, nor did Empress Eugenie when she was regent. So, in theory, the republic is not legitimate?

Somebody can probably fill out more about the technical details here, but...

Napoleon III never abdicated or renounced his title

Which was empereur des Français. :-) So it's logical in a kind of ironic way: The will of the people really was his mandate and legitimisation. And they did not want him as their emperor anymore. Unlike the Bourbons, he could not claim to be God's anointed for the rest of his life. He was just an imperial president out of office.

Oh..but i don't belive the House of Orleans(a branch of the Bourbons) never claimed that either, was that a similar situation with a the Bonapartes? Just a Royal "president"? Well, actually, a differnce is Louis-Phillipe abidicated.( sorry for spelling)
