The year 2012 ist not over yet and so are not the Royal and noble Weddings in 2012 as on 28./29.12 Nancy will see a big Imperial Wedding. Then Archduke Christoph of Austira, the second son and third child of Archduke Carl Christian of Austria and his wife Marie Astird, née Princess of Luxemburg, will there marry his finacée Adélaide Drapé-Frisch. Recently the couple visited Nancy and gave an Interview to the Newspaper´"Le Republiain Lorraine". They told that on the search for the place for their Wedding they looked on Cities like Paris or Brussels but none of this according to their wishes. Then a Family member suggested Nancy and they both liked the Idea very much as the Habsburgs have historic ties to the City. Also the late Archduke Otto married there in 1951. Archduke Christoph also told that they want that the people can share their Wedding and that the doors of the Church will remain open so that people can come in. Adelaide is hoping for a little bit snow for the Wedding Day.
