Can someone provide a reference for the Portuguese, Bulgarian and Belgian (post WW1) princes being Princes of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. - dwc lr (talk) 16:34, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

I am not sure if belgian princes keep the style of Princes of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. During the reign in Portugal of the House of Braganza-Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the infantes also held the style of princes of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and dukes of Saxony (as you can see in its article). Whe Simeon II of Bulgaria became prime minister, he used the name Simeon of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, which proves that bulgarian princes kept this style. --Paliano (talk) 19:09, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
The Almanach de Gotha, 1910 for instance, [1], give the Bulgarians the titles, "Prince of Bulgaria, Duke of Saxony", the Portuguese "Infante of Portugal, Duke of Saxony", the Belgians "Prince of Belgium, Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Duke of Saxony" (though not after WWI) and the UK "Prince of the GB & I, Prince of S-C & G, Duke of Saxony" though again not after WWI. Unless sources can be founded attributing the title P of S-C & G they should be removed from the template and also Template:Princesses of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and Template:Princesses of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha by marriage need to be looked at. - dwc lr (talk) 19:27, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
All right, I'll remove the Bulgarian princes and the Portuguese infantes, as well as the belgians after WW1 --Paliano (talk) 19:36, 16 April 2009 (UTC
Are you guys sure any of the Belgians princes or the UK princes, beside those whose father were reigning Dukes of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, can be considered Princes of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. The first version I made included only the male-line descendants of Francis, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld that didn't start their own country. Because none of the sons of Prince Albert had any title beside their British ones with the execption of Alfred who was Duke.--Queen Elizabeth II's Little Spy (talk) 00:44, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes I think its ok to list them as we can verify that they held the title per published sources such as the Almanach de Gotha or even Belgian Royal Families website[2]. - dwc lr (talk) 01:00, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
