Thanks in advance

How does Archduke Karl spend his time? He doesn't work, I don't think. What activities or charities is he involved with?

She does speak German but not very well. I once saw an interview with her on ORF which she gave in German and it wasn't very good.
I think she prefers to give English interviews. The children are bilingual though.

I would like to know that too. He keeps a low profile I think and I don't think he works.

I understand a couple separating, but living the rest of your life as a monk or a nun? That is a sad waste to live a life in such limbo. Do Francesca and Karl carry on discreet (or indiscreet) relationships with others? Is there a chance they will finally divorce after Otto has gone on? Also, who initiated the separation to begin with?

If they had or have discreet relationships, we wouldn't know; if they were indiscreet, we would.
In any case, unless their relationships become a public issue it's none of our business.

My question was only out of compassion for two people who are not allowed to divorce so each can move on to find real happiness. I was wondering how it might work today because years ago, a friend of mine dated a royal for several years and was devastated when his family refused to allow them to marry. He is now unhappily married and she remained heartbroken until the day she died. So sad.

Well, I suppose nobody can forbid them to divorce, so if they want to they can. There is no law that says they can not. But at the moment they seem to prefer the present arrangement.

With the Habsburgs we must also keep in mind the religious issue. If Karl is as Catholic as his father, divorce is not an option.

Archduke Otto is still alive and Archduke Karl's matrimonial problems are known.
Will he accept to be Heir and be unhappy or will he ask his brother Georg to take over. Nobody knows . I still don't understand why his wedding was accepted by the Head of the House , no other Habsburg assisted the wedding.

But Karl is already the head of the House as Archduke Otto gave this position to him a few years ago.

apart from the catholic issues it might also be a money issue. Francesca is very rich and might have to pay substantial amounts to Karl.
apparently they get on very well, have family holiday together and raise their kids together. if that arrangement is ok for both so why divorce?
They probably have relationships with others, after all they have been seperated for years.

Yes, it is Francesca. She just had bad luck. It is a charity fashion show with lots of famous/semi-famous people on the catwalk. She's probably not used to run around in such a dress

Well, it seems that she really has bad luck with her dresses. We all remember that famous photo in Venice, where the back of her dress was lifted up by the light breeze...:-)
