The Count of Paris interviewed by Tele Star

Mgr. The Count of Paris has been interviewed by Télé Star.

Here is the Prince’s response about the dynastic dispute:

This division is recent and concerns only a minority. From the death of the Comte de Chambord in 1883 to the 1980s, the question did not arise. I observe moreover that Louis deals, more and more, with Spanish affairs.

What the Prince says is true.  The Anjouist cause has always been a minority.  In 1883, most royalists, including Legitimists, recognised Philip d’Orleans as King Philip VII.

In fact, the New International Encyclopedia refers to Philippe d’Orleans (Philip VIII) as the “Legitimist pretender to the crown of France.”
