Re: Funeral guests
I read the infamous brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro will also attend.
He is facing a difficult campaign (against another infamous candidate) and he feels the need to be seen among his "equals" for intern purposes
The portuguese president also annouced his presence.
But he think he is like God - he is everywhere.
Wonder how much time he spent in Portugal last month...
Here is an Twitter post which is updated with all royals and presidents who are confirmed to attend so far https://twitter.com/ShadyPinesSam/status/1569314606627045376
