Portuguese launch petition claiming historical justice to the Portuguese Royal House

Today a group of portuguese launched a petition demanding the inclusion of the Portuguese Royal House in the State protocol.It’s a major movement, 106 years after the Republican revolution , wich sets the pace to the reconciliation between the portuguese and their recente History

The Portuguese Royal House, and the Royal Cause are the most enduring movement of political resistence in Europe.

“The Duke of Bragança, HRH D. Duarte Pio, as a descendant and representative of the Kings of Portugal, is regularly invited to participate in official events, and is usually given special treatment, although this is not provided for in the protocol of the State .
We propose to include this reality in the Protocol Law, as in the case of high foreign, diplomatic, religious, university and social partners. The protocol relationship due to Duque de Bragança should be specified in Law nº. 40/2006 of August 25 – “Law of Precedence of the Protocol of the Portuguese State“, adding a new Article 34:
1 – The head of the House of Bragança, when invited to official ceremonies, shall be treated as a special guest of the entity that, by virtue of the highest protocolity precedence, has the presidency.
2 – The spouse of the head of the House of Bragança shall be accorded equal status when accompanying him.
