Announcement of the birth of two French princes

Thanks to the Mad Monarchist for this news:

Finally, some very happy news indeed from New York City, it was announced that, yesterday morning, HRH Prince Luis Alfonso de Bourbon, Duc d’Anjou (rightly King Louis XX of France to legitimists) and his wife Princess Marie Margaret welcomed twin boys into the world; Prince Luis and Prince Alfonso. They were born by c-section and mother and sons are said to be in “perfect condition”. Heartfelt congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Anjou and the latest additions to the venerable French Royal House.

From what I can gather in the newspapers, based on my poor understanding of Spanish, Prince Louis is the Dauphin.

Vive le Roi!
Vive la Reine! Vive le Dauphin! Vive le Prince Alphonse!

With immense thanksgiving for their happy birth, I entrust the health of the princes to the prayers of their great ancestor St Louis, of Ste Jeanne d'Arc, and of the martyred Louis XVII.


  1. A great joy for everyone who cares about the monarchist cause.
    And simply a joy, in the most private sense: two babies are born, God save them!

  2. Medvedev, welcome to my blog. Gerald Warner, in his report on this in The Telegraph today stated, "No royal house in Europe is imbued with more historical and regal lustre."

    France is the land whence my blood derives, and I've had many ancestors who fought in wars for the king of France and colonized Canada to enrich his crown and extend his domain. Many of my kin perished in the brutal suppression of the Vendée after rising against the revolutionary government's unjust execution of Louis XVI. Indeed, my name, Palardy, is Vendéen, and is either extinct or quite moribund in France now.

    Loyalty to the king thus runs in my veins, and to receive this news makes me to burst with joy, especially so close to the real French national holiday, the feast of Ste Jeanne d'Arc.
