After a period of deliberation, the Head of the Imperial House - in agreement with his brother and immediate dynastic heir, the Imperial Prince of Brazil, Dom Bertrand of Orleans and Bragança - decided to bestow these gifts to his brother and sister-in-law, showing not only Prince Dom Luiz’s great appreciation and his brotherly affection, as well as his full confidence in the future of the dynasty under the eventual leadership of Prince Dom Antônio, with the support of Princess Dona Christine.
