• Interview Chiara of Bourbon Two Sicilies, the princess who studies at Harvard and finds inspiration in Leonor
  • Caroline Monarchy of Bourbon-Two Sicilies: "It is absurd to fight for a title without a throne"

In the times of female empowerment, while the reigning royal houses are concerned with adapting to the new airs, combining the most regal of their protocols with the need for the heirs to resemble the young people of today and worry about the same issues, to take a look at the Instagram account of Maria Carolina and Maria Chiara of Bourbon-Two Sicilies is to immerse yourself in a dream of princess tales of yesteryear.

They are the daughters of Charles of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Castro and confronted with the infante Don Carlos for being the head of the House; and Camilla Crociani. The marriage combined his titles with her millionaire dowry and with the union they also shared agendas and a common goal: that their offspring, two very blonde, very thin and intelligent daughters, are at the height of a throne that they will never occupy, but it does not prevent them from being in the circle of the most exclusive gotha.

It was confirmed last week at the Monte Carlo Grand Prix, when the girls shared a photo in a VIP box with Christian of Denmark, Count of Monpezat and firstborn of Federico and Mary, heirs of Queen Margaret. They have known each other since they were born and despite the fact that Christian is still a minor, some tabloids ventured an affair that returned these very legal blondes to the headlines.

The oldest is Maria Carolina, who was born 19 years ago in Rome. Just a year and a half later, his sister, Maria Chiara, arrived in the world in the Italian capital. Both studied at school among the fabulous houses that their parents have scattered throughout Europe. The one that most boasts in networks is that of Paris, with palatial airs and views, of course, to the Eiffel Tower. They also move around Monaco, Italy ... and last year they walked their titles of princesses through the April Fair in Seville.

Educated at home, they learned five languages fluently and their intelligence earned them to enter university before reaching the age of majority. Chiara studies history and business at Harvard and is currently in final exams.

Relations with the European courts come from the cradle. Thus, Lorenzo of Belgium and Agnes Sastre were Chiara's godparents at her baptism in Rome. Because in order not to lose the link with the throne and the culture of the title they have, all relevant acts are celebrated in Italy. The Belgian royal family is one of the biggest supporters of the Crociani Bourbon-Two Sicilies. But the young women also rub shoulders with the Grimaldi and, as confirmed last week, with the Danish royal family. Chiara also revealed in an interview with LA OTRA CRÓNICA that she also knows Princess Leonor and, we suppose, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia.

Don Juan Carlos is a second cousin of the Duke of Castro. However, Philip VI's father strengthened closer ties with Infante Don Carlos, Duke of Calabria, and his family, historically feuding with the Duke of Castro for the throne of the Two Sicilies. The infant and his five children have had a very close relationship with the Spanish Royal Family. Don Juan Carlos not only distinguished him with the title, but also imposed the Golden Fleece and always had room in his house. Don Felipe and Doña Letizia have inherited that relationship and have a lot of dealings with Cristina de Borbón-Dos Sicilias and her husband, Pedro López-Quesada.

Despite everything, the Italian branch of the Bourbon-Two Sicilies has always shown its respect and admiration for Felipe VI and the Spanish Royal House. Their daughters, strolling princesses, have inherited from their parents the importance of being well connected. And they embody among their fairytale life the concerns of their youth. Thus, Chiara combined these days the studies of the final exams with the fight against climate change. Since Thursday, as ambassador of the Oceans of the WWF association, she cares about taking care of the seas.
