A Shrine for Blessed Emperor Karl

On next Sunday, Archduke Imre of Austria, oldest son of Luxembourg's Princess Marie-Astrid, will present a first class relic to the parish of the Saint Mary Mother of God church in Washington D.C. On the same day, the shrine of the church will be dedicated to Blessed Emperor Karl, Imre's great-grandfather and last ruler of the Austro-Hungarian empire, and Imre will take part in the dedication ceremony. It is the very same church where the Archduke will marry his American fiancée Kathleen Walker in just nine days.

Although the archduke in question is called "Emry", I'm pretty sure it is our Imre.

  1. Haha, I can't believe they got his name wrong seeing it's the grandson of the man they are supposed to be honouring!
    Any pics of the event?
