Portuguese Nationality Question for UK / Portuguese citizen.

Mrs A was born in...
Portuguese Nationality Question for UK / Portuguese citizen.
Mrs A was born in Portugal 54 years ago fr Portuguese parents. They came to UK in 1966 & in 1974 she was 'registered' British citizen (BC). She married a BC in UK in 1988 & had a child in 1999. She has her Portuguese birth certificate & now wishes to get her Portuguese national ID card (& hence passport) for herself & her child. She will of course ask the consulate in UK but they are v difficult to get hold of. Does any expert here know how she shd go about it? The exact steps she'll need to take? Friends advise that she needs to register her UK marriage with Portuguese consulate first (transcribe her marriage) especially as she wants to get her child a Portuguese ID card and a passport too. Thank you.

Should Mrs A apply for her Portuguese ID card & passport 1st & before registering (transcribing) her marriage certificate with Portuguese consulate or must she register her marriage with Portuguese consulate before applying for her Portuguese ID & passport?
Parents´ marriage must be endorsed on the birth certificate. If married abroad and marriage has not yet been registered in Portugal, registration must be done by the Consulate before the child may apply for nationality.
