AD Karl was interviewed by the Guardian about Sarajewo. Though the article focusses for a large part on European integration, it makes an interesting read:

Archduke Karl spoke earlier tonight at the Commonwealth Club about his work preserving cultural heritage sites and artifacts. Here are some photos I took of the event in San Francisco.

On April 6th the newspaper Kurier published an interview with Archduke Karl. He says that there is not one guilty party for the First World War.

Karl Habsburg: "Es gibt keinen Alleinschuldigen am Ersten Weltkrieg" - KURIER.at

Although that has been the consensus among historians for a while, recent publications in that field tend to lie more and more blame with the Serbian government, who sacrificed the peace in Europe for nationalistic reasons. Only this time what was supposed to be a 4th Balkan war escalatred into a world war (see among others 'World War One. The Global Revolution by Lawrence Sondhaus, 2011).

The article however focusses on the guilt - or innocence- of the Emperor Franz Joseph in this matter.

The archduke also recalls that his grandmother Empress Zita still shared some memories of the war, his father only remembered parts of the final years.

Sleek magazine published an interview with the archduchess online:

Quote:
Francesca von Habsburg is a fourth-generation art collector and since 2002, chairman of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21), which she founded in Vienna, and whose tenth anniversary celebration was the highlight of the city’s Art Week last November. While organising the upcoming exhibition at TBA21 with Chief Curator Daniela Zyman, she spoke to Sleek about a decade of collecting, commissioning and figuratively “getting into bed” with artists…

Archduchess Fransesca features in a documentary by ORF;



Fransesca's part starts after 20 minutes and is conducted in English. She speaks among other things about her father, raising her children and what the name Habsburg means to her.

Earlier in the programme there is an interview with Prince Karl von Schwarzenberg.
