Shortly before Christmas, Archduke Christoph and Archduchess Adélaïde became the parents of a baby girl. The little Archduchess is called Katarina Marie-Christine Fabiola. She was born on December 22 in Geneva, Switzerland, where her parents live.

Young Katarina is the fourth grandchild and second granddaughter of Luxembourg's Princess Marie-Astrid and her husband Archduke Carl-Christian of Austria. Joining Prince Gabriel, Prince Noah and Princess Amalia of Nassau, Count Léopold and Count Constantin of Limburg-Stirum, as well as Archduchess Maria-Stella of Austria, she is the seventh great-grandchild of Grand Duke Jean.
