HRH The Duke of Noto and the Order of Malta

Last October 6, at a ceremony celebrated in Rome, HRH Prince don Pedro of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, became a member of the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights Hospitalers of  Malta.

Don Pedro, a dynamic prince with a very open and welcoming personality, is the only son, among five children, of HRH the Infante don Carlos of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria, claimant to the throne of the Two Sicilies. Don Pedro's ancestry is a fine example of what old dynastic alliances once were. His four grandparents were members from various branches of the Bourbon Dynasyty: Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Bourbon-Parma, (Bourbon-) Orléans and (Bourbon-) Orléans-Bragança.

The heir to this amazing legacy married doña Sofía Landaluce, a Spanish aristocrat, granddaughter of a duke and Grandee of Spain. With doña Sofía, don Pedro formed a family now blessed with five children, plus one on the way. The couple lives in Madrid and don Pedro works in his family's various endeavors and businesses, besides functioning as one of the higher officials within the Constantinian Order of Saint George.
