Imre and Katie honeymoon in India

The normally quiet Archduke Imre doesn't seem to be disappearing from the news after his wedding to Kathleen Walker. Imre and Katie are enjoying the second stage of their honeymoon in romantic in India. The couple visited Fatehpur Sikri, Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. They have toured all of the traditional tourist hot spots and still plan a visit to the home of Mother Teresa.

While speaking to a reporter from The Times of India, Katie mentioned that she grew up hearing about India. Her grandfather Charles Kelly was stationed in Calcutta during WWII. It wasn't mentioned in the article but Imre's mother, Princess Marie-Astrid, accompanied by his youngest brother spent some time in India during the past few years. Princess Marie-Astrid was working in her official capacity (which she receives pitifully little recognition for). No doubt they shared many stories and photographs with Imre.

Unlike ordinary tourists, the couple are guests of the Maharajah of Jaipur's family. The Maharajah himself is only 13 years old. Imre and his wife are staying in the truly magnificent City Palace in Udaipur. The palace should be impressive even to someone who is accustomed to royal palaces and castles.

After reading about some of the recent intrigue, feuding, and dramatic family politics involving their host's family I suggest that Imre and Katie sleep with one eye open and employ a food taster for the remainder of their time in Jaipur.

The couple began their honeymoon in Greece there is no word if India is the final leg of their journey. The article in The Times of India features a photograph of the couple enjoying one of the destinations in "the Pink City."
