Nine candles in Capri for the daughter of Charles and Camilla

Capri, 25 June 2012. Nine candles on the cake covered with chantilly cream and strawberries were blown out by S.A.R. The Pincipessina Princess Maria Carolina of Bourbon of the two Sicilies. Her Parents Charles and Camilla, Duchess and Duke of Castro, have chosen to place their first-born among the most beautiful and prestigious Isle of Capri Riviera. The family took advantage of the attraction of the magnificent “Blue Grotto” in which Maria Carolina wanted to cut the cake together with her family by floating on a small boat over the clear waters of the island. An event that has so far been achieved only the young Princess. A long weekend in which the Royal family has retraced and visited the most important places of what was once the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. Maria Carolina and Maria Chiara, accompanied by their Royal parents Charles and Camilla, have among others admired the magnificent Royal Palace of Caserta, commissioned by King Charles of Bourbon in the eighteenth century and built by renowned architect Luigi Vanvitelli. The monument, unique in the world which can be rivalled in size and magnificence only with the Palace of Versailles, was the scene in 2002 of the sumptuous feast for the Baptism of Maria Carolina, in the presence of 300 guests including crowned heads of Europe and the most important families of the Italian aristocracy. During the visit, Maria Carolina was photographed in the beautiful rooms that once were inhabited by her ancestor, Queen Maria Carolina of Austria, who was married to King Ferdinando I of Bourbon, and then became Queen of the Two Sicilies. Subsequently, The Royal Family visited Salerno and Naples while with the civil, military and religious authorities of the both cities.
