Title: HRH Prince Carlos de Bourbon Parma,Prince of Piacenza
Post by: Bernardino on November 03, 2006, 11:46:56 AM
Hello  :)

Does anyone know anything about the current status of Pss Margarita of Bourbon-Parma's marriage?

Wasn´t she 'abbandoned' by her husband? I don't know if they're divorcing or just separated...

The Princess wasn't abandoned by her husband,it's the other way 'round.Ever since,he,Edwin de Roy van Zuydewyn,is making quite a spectacle of himself.The Princess filed for divorce and the court will rule on it next week november 8th,after that they have two months to settle arrangements,the who gets what and why not business.But their lawyers will handle that for them,that is,if EdRvZ finds himself a lawyer,several had him as their client,and all of 'm dropped out,either as he didn't pay any bills,or his behaviour was too weird for them to handle.The court will rule in favor of a divorce,as their "marriage" is in a totally and utterly impossible mess,due to him.We here always wonder what's next in this freakshow.

EdRvZ has been harrassing the Princess,founded a political party aiming at lashing out to the RF and "secrecy",he was sued for the first and failed in the latter and withdrew from elections,he was bothered with the red tape and time it all involved.....,he's the laughing stock here in NL.

He's a downright mental case.Has been from day one of the marriage,he publicly scolded the Princess minutes after leaving church,a shocking,hou je bek (shut the **** up)was the answer to a question by her,and that was taped.Her father wasn't present at the wedding,he opposed,but officially it was due to weather circumstances his plane couldn't take off from Logan airport,Boston,where he spends a lot of time.Next the couple bought a chateau in the south of France,and voila,he called himself Baron,fake ofcourse.Anyhow,the Princess was totally under the spell of this weirdo,says something about her own mental state at the time as well ofcourse,and about love turning into the wrong direction.Actually everything went into the wrong direction,Edwin ruined the Princess financially,debts were building up,he was to lazy to move his butt,thought he could live on a fake title alone,and finally,when matters took a turn for the worse,he(and she..)started allegations against the RF,completely and utterly false,schizofrenic avant le lettre.Her aunt and godmother,HM,read a statement during a press conference while on a state visit to Chile a few years ago in which she said she regretted this situation in which her godchild was in and that nor she nor the rest of the RF recognised themselves in the allegations.She was profoundly saddened by Pss.Margarita's situation,but couldn't elaborate on the issue as it concerned a daughter of her sister,Princess Irene. 

The Princess meanwhile is keeping a low profile,living quitely here in Amsterdam,getting her act together again.And the chateau is still up for sale,has been for about a year now.The Princess has "returned"within the RF circle,her first appearance after the whole hullabaloo being the funeral of her grandmother,Princess Juliana in 2004.Gradually relations improved and she's part of family festivities again,but that didn't come overnight either.

From today,november 8th,HRH Princess Margarita de Bourbon - Parma,Contessa di Colorno,and EdRvZ are officially divorced.Due to the Court ruling all(finances etc)must be arranged by january,but since there's a "bad" communication line between them,it may take a while.The Princess recently placed an add in the papers to track her(now) ex,after the sale of their chateau in France,as he doesn't seem to have an official address.He's known to have moved in with his mother without notifying the authorities,just his run down car is proof he's at his mothers house here in Amsterdam.The couple married in june 2001,the RF and the Bourbon-Parma's disapproved,still the then bride Margarita got the Ears-of-Wheat diadem on loan from her godmother The Queen.Of all QJ's grandchildren,only TRH Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien,and Margarita's siblings were present.

The Court ruled that EdRvZ's request for a monthly allowance of Euro 5000 (approx.$6.500) from Princess Maragarita,because,as he claims;"The Princess's and the RF's doings were/are the cause he can't find a job".(Total lack of self-reflection by EdRvZ....).The court dismissed this claim today as well.

Last year,EdRvZ filed for a court order to give him "visiting rights" to the dog the Princess took with her on return to The Netherlands,the court dismissed that request.

The case will be on the roll of the Court again on january 17th 2007,for the final arrangements.

Today an interview with E.'s  mother,Mrs.Wynande Eleonore van Gulden was published in which she states it was not her son who ruined the Princess,but the other way 'round,my son is not a fraud.......the Princess has laid a claim on all of Edwin's accounts and posessions,all is barred for E. now.
(Hilarious really,he hardly had a penny to start with,bluff was all he could claim,(and lawsuits for frauduleus conduct and unpaid bills,thanks).

Mother dearest will be on tv in a few minutes giving her view on the wedding and the divorce,the love of a mother is strong indeed,and should be,but she reminds me of scene's from 'Allo 'Allo",as "the silly old bad" and a manipulative woman,who has past an overdose of that specific gene on her son.Bonkers dahling.

Still an ongoing embarrasing saga.Now Edwin has filed yet another lawsuit against his ex-wife as he wants,what he claims to be,his stuff,back.It should have been organised after the court ruling last november,but to this day has not been executed,the divorce is,not the "what's what and to who".

Edwin is as stupid as ever,his ex-wife's lawyer states it's due to his own actions as he doesn't agree with the court ruling not to get allomony from the Princess and has issued a lawsuit at a higher court to get it still.While all this mess is sorted out,he continues to make an absolute spectacle of himself,more of a nuisance really,as that is how he and this whole hullabaloo is received by the dutch.All the furniture and what not that once was in their chateau Bartas,Gascogne,France is in storage with a firm in Soest,Margarita has seized it untill matters are totally sorted out,till then,Edwin claims he can't do anything.Might be so,but he could start by looking for a job instead of living of his mothers allowance still,but then no-one wants to employ this pain in the b*tt,not because as he claims,the doings of the RF,but simply because his own,well,actions.He's even a no no in gaga land,let alone anywhere else,and trust me,I'm very objective in this matter.

Bartas,France,it is sold now.

Margarita helped him out,Edwin has his underwear back out of storage among some other personal items,enough to have him withdrawn the law-suit from last week.

All other goods are still in storage.Edwin "emptied" chateau Barras without the Princess's consent,she was in The Netherlands at the time,then had it stored by the movers in Soest,and subsequently never paid a dime for the moving and storage but claimed all the stuff to be his.Absolute nonsens,he didn't have more then a dime at the start of the marriage but had no problem squandering his wife's "substantial finances" till the,almost,last penny.Love is blind as they say?Hah!
It's worse than that.It's downright rediculous,not just on Edwin's side,she's not a light either.After the judge had their marriage annulled last november they were given 3 months to divide and clean up their act in the what goes where and who gets what not department,instead both proved to be stubborn.They still haven't got it straight,Edwin because he's a pain au naturel,and Margarita isn't all the wiser in this case either.Hopefully one would meet him while walking along an Amsterdam canal,and make him "trip" ,regardless the outcome,not just my,but a general feeling here in NL.

Another present day Bourbon-Parma,HRH Princess Margarita,was married yesterday in a civil ceremony attended by all of her family
and friends including HM Queen Beatrix.Civil ceremony only as her first marriage isn't annulled.Yet.

Mr.Tjalling ten Cate,a lawyer at the Dutch National Bank and Mrs.Margarita M.B. ten Cate live in Amsterdam.

HM The Queen is the Princesses's godmother.

There is no picture released of this very intimate and private ceremony "somewhere in the middle of the country" so far,that will happen at a later stage.
But it is presumed that it was at the town of Wijk bij Duurstede,HRH Princess Irene,the brides mother,has her dutch residence there.

The eldest, Edouard-Xavier (1960-1984) was murdered in mysterious circumstances. He was killed by two buck-shots in the back. Then, he was thrown in the Seine river, in Ivry sur Seine in the suburb of Paris, weighted with a stone of 17 kilos. Up to now, the investigation yielded no result.
Four years later, in 1988, his brother Robert was assassinated in Lebanon. I think he was there for a humanitarian mission for the Order of Malta.
Charles-Henri, the third son, lives in Paris and his sister, Marie Gabrielle is a nun.
Prince of Lobkowicz 's funeral will take place Thursday april 8 at Saint Thomas d'Aquin Church in Paris.

I don't think the marriage of HRH Princesse Françoise of Bourbon-Parma was considered morganatic by her family. On the contrary... Her husband, His Serene Highness Prince Edouard of Lobkowicz belonged to a  Mediatized House of the Holy Roman Empire. Thus, a royal princess was allowed to marry a mediatized  prince, their alliance was considered equal, not morganatic.
This marriage was considered so much the less morganatic that Robert II, duke of Parma, the head of the House was present to the wedding in 1960 at Notre-Dame in Paris.
The family is deeply divided for politic reasons. On the one hand, you see Carlos Hugo and three of his sisters (Maria Teresa, Cecilia and Maria de las Nieves) who share his... socialist views. On the other hand, there is Sisto Henrique professing ideas of... extreme right, and Françoise who is not fallen out with him....

REMI
Title: Re: HRH Prince Carlos de Bourbon Parma,Prince of Piacenza
Post by: Marc on April 06, 2010, 08:25:45 AM
This marriage was treated equal as Eduard was as Remi pointed out a meditized Prince who is as such considered equal with other royal families...even Queen Elizabeth II descends from Lobkowicz family...

On the other hand there could be a dispute regarding the Lobkowicz House Laws because his mother was a commoner born and lived in US and by that someone could say that he is not entirely "equal"...

But,if you look just from the male line point of view a union with Lobkowicz would always be regarded "technically" as equal unlike the union with for example old Rochefoucauld family which could be tricky for some Houses...just depends on Law of a certain House...

HRH Prince Carlos Hugo,Duke of Parma,father of Prince Carlos,has been admitted to hospital due to his suffering from prostate cancer.
The Duke of Prama is under treatment for several years now,but this recidive turns out to be extremely serious.So much so
that HRH deemed it fit to call upon his next of kin to a refer to and acknowledge his eldest son as the Duke of Parma in a manifesto issued earlyer.

Prince Carlos,who married Anne Marie Gualthérie van Weezel in a civil ceremony in march this year,
might cancel the preparations to the religious wedding ceremony in Brussels later this month on the
28th due to his fathers condition.

The manifesto is seen as a goodbye by the Prince.Truly sad indeed,he is always seen as one of us,one of the
Orange Nassau Family closests and dearest since his marriage to HRH Princess Irene in 1964,even their divorce did
not change the sympathy we Dutch have for Carlos Hugo.He is a wonderfull father, and uncle to the plentyfull
children of his former wifes sisters,but also a very very close and very dear friend of HM Queen Beatrix.

The religious wedding on august 28th in Brussels has been postponed due to the critical condition of HRH The Duke of Parma,
this is contrary to the Duke's wish but understandeble in light of the situation.A later date has to be set yet.
The couple was already married in a civil ceremony last june in The Netherlands.

Carlos Hugo,Duke of Parma,former husband of HRH Princess irene of The Netherlands is dying at a hospital in Barcelona.

Please,include Carlos Hugo,Duke of Parma,and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

weddingday but decided a week ago to postpone in view of the deteriorating health condition of dear Carlos Hugo.

On friday the remains will be flown to The Netherlands where he will lie in state st the Fagel Pavillion in the Noordeinde Palace gardens till monday.

On monday the remains of the late Duke will be flown to Parma and Piacenza where the general public can pay their last respects.

I thought it was quite unusual that Carlos Hugo attended the celebration for the British Queen Mum's 100th.  I was glad to see him there but thought it was a bit unusual.  Does anyone know why he was there?

Also, besides the Dutch Royal Family, did he maintain relations with any of the other Royal Houses (reigning or not)?

And,ofcourse,his uncle was married to the Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg thus the former Grand Duke Jean is
his full blown cousin,as is HI&RH Archduke Otto of Habsburg,his mother Zita,Austria's last Empress was an aunt of Carlos Hugo,
so there are family ties there too.These few in itself are impressive I would say,and then add ofcourse his former-in-laws to whom
he always remained a warm and dear friend.At the last State Visit of his dear friend Queen Beatrix to Belgium,Carlos Hugo and his
eldest son were also invited for the dinner.He was a modest man,he really was,and one would never ever assume this lovely man
had such a pedigree,he was too kind and one would have walked by him without knowing if you didn't,dressed in jeans and gymshoes or what are they called,just very comfy no fanfare no here comes the Duke,he didn't need that,no,there always was his smile and shaking hands ment he took your hand in both of his and looked you straight in the eye.Time will comfort,and only time.

Title: Re: HRH Prince Carlos de Bourbon Parma,Prince of Piacenza
Post by: Lucien on August 26, 2010, 05:08:22 AM
Why is her Majesty not in attendance?

HM already payed her respect by having the late Duke flown to The Netherlands and then to Italy onwards.
As a Head of State HM can not attend due to not to offend HM The King of Spain,as it is possible Carlists
will take the opportunity to express themselves.Any rank beneath that of Monarch is able to attend as a family
representative only. Also,there are some questions as to whom bestowed the Toison d'Or to the late Duke as
that is the prerogative of HM The King of Spain,or HI&RH Archduke Otto of Habsburg as Head of their respective Houses.
The Toison d'Or is seen prominently on the Arms of the Bourbon Parma's on the coffin.The late Duke was bestowed
with it by his late father who considered himself the rightfull "King of Spain",only revered as  such by some in his
closest family and some Carlist die-hards.So,HM not attending is a diplomatic absence,allthough I believe as a dear
and close friend of the deceased she rather would have attended I'm sure.

Archduke Otto is too frail to attend due to his age alone but his son and Heir might attend.
Archduke Lorenz,I am not sure as on august 28th the commemoration on occasion of the
75th anniversary of the death of HM Queen Astrid takes place and the family will gather in
Briquemont at the Queen Astrid chapel to attend a Mass of Remembrance in the afternoon.
We'll have to wait and see who will represent either,if at all, I'm afraid.

Theoretically yes,if the Carlists would have had it their way.

Instead,as the late Duke is now finally interred a few minutes ago,the inauguration of Duke Carlos Javier
took place minutes ago at the Steccata as his younger brother Prince Jaime presented him with
the collare dell Ordine Costantinianao as a token he is the new Duke of Parma..

Right now he holds his inaugural speech and he holds on to the Spanish claims.
In all due respect,not that it matters much,Don Juan Carlos and Felipe will not
budge an inch but it's part of the folklore,as I see it,and anyone else for that matter.
It is exactly this point,the spanish claims,why HM Queen Beatrix can not,could not be
 present at the Steccata today.It was in order not to offend her dear and close friends
TM The King and Queen of Spain.

The new Duke answerred questions by the press corps after the lenghty funeral Mass,the Inauguration and receiving the condolences of hundreds of guests.It must have been quite exhausting indeed.The intensive travelling,the ceremonies of over a week,but the children and family of the late Duke are immaculate,no trace of exhaustion,but still,it was intense.That and the heat in Parma,it is very sunny and very warm there now.This made many guests in church dip their heads with tissues,or used a beautifull fan's like the one HRH Princess Irene used.

Duke Carlo Saverio as he's known in Italy,gave an impressive speech in Italian,ending with warm loving words to his father in Spanish.

With his brother Prince Jaime by his side he answerred all questions by the press in a dignified patient way,even the one by the horribly persistent rude italian journalist who insisted on wanting to know the new weddingdate exclaiming;"My readers have a
right to know"...really...scumbags..But no,the Duke remained calm and answerred in Italian without revealing the new date.
This made the journalists of the Gazetta di Parma say;"He's good at it,very good of him" pointing at both the diplomatic and
language skills.

Later during the reception for the guests at the Teatro Regio it was clear how easily the children of the late Duke have conversations with each and everyone while changing from Italian to English to Spanish to Dutch without a problem,polyglots,all of them.Especially Princess Margarita switched form one language to another and was fluent in all.

The father of Duchess Annemarie,Hans Gualthérie van Weezel,thought it a beautifull and warm event on what would
have been his daughters wedding day.

A new wedding day is planned,but not disclosed yet but it will be this year as was the wish of the late Duke Carlos Hugo.

HRH may find himself with more than one new royal shave-off of the old Parmesan cheese in the near future. His illegitimate (but recognized) Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren Klynstra, having atteined his majority, has, according to Wikipedia "started the legal procedure to opt for the possibility to change his surname to that of his biological father (Prince Carlos) by Royal decree. If Carlos Hugo would succeed in this procedure he would be [en]nobled upon these changes because he would then be legitimised by law (Nobility Act, 1994) and would henceforth be known as His Royal Highness Prince Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren de Bourbon de Parme."

If I were a member of the Hoge Raad van Adel I'd do my best to ensure he was incorporated into the nobility as Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren Bâtard de Bourbon de Parme, armed with a baton or bend sinister as a true Parmesan topping on the obese but not very nourishing Bourbon-Parma arms - honi soit qui mal y pense!
