Kathleen is, in fact, a beautiful girl, but Adelaide?...I don't think so. IMHO, her prettiness is definitely average. Duchess of Cambridge is much nicer and has more beautiful smile.

When I saw the first photo releases, of just the two couples, and being unfamiliar with how each Archduke looked, I could tell right away which young lady was Miss Kathleen Walker and which was Mlle. Adelaide Drapé-Frisch (based on their names, I guessed their nationalities correctly). Kathleen has a very typical "trendy American" look to her with regards to her hair and makeup; I saw a lot of high school and college girls with the same highlights and eyeliner looks especially when I was living in the Midwest. Adelaide maybe younger but with her hair, makeup and dress, she looks more mature and sophisticated. Just an observation.

this article says that Archduke Imre and Kathleen will tie the knot before Christoph and Adelaide, but both weddings are to take place in 2012, but the dates haven't been announced yet!

The Royalement blog has a new update of Archduchess Marie Astrid and her son Archduke Imre. The post has a picture, and the caption says that Archduchess Marie Astrid and Archduke Imre visited the castle of Vianden . The castle has history of 900 years which was an ancient property of the Grand Ducal family of Luxembourg, the castle was sold in 1977 by Grand duke Jean

This article has four pictures of Archduchess Marie Astrid and Archduke Imre. The article mentioned Archduke Alexander instead of Archduke Imre

Here is an article by Luxarazzi on the occasion of Christian and Marie-Astrid's 31st wedding anniversary. If you scroll down the page, you will see a short but lovely & interesting video of their wedding:

Settle down.... There is no implication whatsoever, only that I had somehow imagined Princess Marie-Astrid to have a higher-pitched, perhaps more girlish voice. In fact, I quite like deep-timbre voices in women, as they lend us gravitas. As I said when I initially posted the video, I think that it is lovely.

I am frankly amazed by how (unnecessarily) defensive people can become on this site!
