Funeral of Prince Georg von Waldburg zu Zeil und Trauchburg

Yesterday, Prince Georg von Waldburg zu Zeil and Trauchburg was laid to rest at the cemetery of the St. Maria parish church of Schloss Zeil in Leutkirch im Allgäu in southern Germany with the requiem taking place at the St. Verena parish church in nearby Bad Wurzach. Fürst Georg, the head of the Zeil branch of the Princely House of Waldburg, had died on December 2 at the age of 87. He is survived by his wife née Princess Marie-Gabrielle of Bavaria and their six children.

The mourners at the Prince of Waldburg-Zeil's funeral included Grand Duke Henri and his sister Archduchess Marie-Astrid and her husband Archduke Carl-Christian of Austria as well as Prince Hans-Adam II and Princess Marie. Also in attendance were Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie, who is a niece of the deceased.
