Habsburgs in Metz and Nancy

Archduke Imre, oldest son of Princess Marie-Astrid, and his wife, Archduchess Kathleen, visited the French cities of Metz and Nancy this weekend. Both Metz and Nancy lie within the Lorraine region, one of the ancestral home of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine

In Metz, Archduke Imre and Archduchess Kathleen participated in a conference about Empress Zita of Austria, Imre's great-grandmother, and in Nancy they took part in an "imperial journey" organised by the association Présence du souvenir bourbonien en Lorraine. The event, which was organised in the memory of Blessed Emperor Karl of Austria and his wife, Empress Zita, included a mass, a luncheon and a conference. Another Habsburg guest at the event was Archduchess Isabella, Countess Czarnocki-Lucheschi, younger sister of Prince Lorenz of Belgium. A few pictures of the event in Nancy can be found here and here.
