His Royal Highness the Grand Master has conferred the collar of the Order and the dignity of Knight of the Royal Order of Saint Januarius to the Count of Paris and has accepted the Countess of Paris in the Constantinian Order of Saint George. Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of Bourbon Two Sicilies, Grand Prefect of the Order, His Imperial Highness Prince Napoleon, as well as His Serene Highness Prince Charles-Henri of Lobkowicz attended the ceremony .
