Imre and Katie in Brussels

Archduke Imre and his American fiancée Kathleen "Katie" Walker were in Brussels on Tuesday, where they attended the Ommegang Oppidi Bruxellensis historical parade.

Research tells me (and thus you) that an ommegang is a name for medieval pageants celebrated in Belgium, the Netherlands and Northern France. The one attended by Imre and Katie is the most famous one and commemorates the joyous entry of the holy roman emperor Charles V. into the city of Brussels almost 500 years ago.

The event was also attended by Imre's great aunt Queen Fabiola of Belgium. If you look closely, you can spy him and Katie (or parts of them) in pictures here and here. If you like to have it easier, you have a look at this video of Queen Fabiola arriving and greeting the engaged couple.

A special thanks to Iza for providing the news. I said it before and I'll say it again: You are awesome!
