Archduke Ferdinand has a car crash during the World Series by Renault at Silverstone, hitting another car and then his car was launched on air.

Some articles in English about the accident:
Driver goes for wild airborne crash in World Series by Renault | FOX Sports
Ferdinand Habsburg OK after massive Formula Renault crash | The Driven Blog
http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/other-...ng-car-6388377

According to a tweet he posted, he is fine and safe:

Archduchess Francesca apparently thinks about moving her modern art collection from Vienna to Zurich. They claim that with her project TBA21 she made Vienna a Mecca for modern art.

In an interview for a Swiss newspaper she said that the city counsil is static and provincial.

Edit:

The archduchess says that the idea of the move has not ripened yet:

It seems that she mainly is worried that Vienna does not have much interest in a long term strategy for art. She also adds that as her children are grown up her horizon can reach further then Vienna.

Thanks for the information.
Do you know who is the girl next to Prince Ferdinand Zvonimir?
Princess Eleonore or Princess Gloria?
I think the woman second from right is Princess Anita von Hohenberg.
And between the woman and the girl is her husband Count Andreas von Bardeau.
He appeared on Japanese TV.show and he was stopped Koishida Junichi the japanese comedian his Castle Kornberg. Sorry for my poor English.

Your English is perfectly fine, Zentsuji. Welcome to TRF.

The girl next to the archduke is indeed his younger sister Gloria. Both his mother as his elder sister were not present. Thank you for identifying the other people!

***
In the mean time, Archduchess Francesca announced that she will play a very small role in the new Austrian tv-series 'Das Sachser'; a costume drama about a hotel.

Das Hotel als Hauptdarsteller « DiePresse.com

Apparently she is a friend of the director of the series.

Francesca already had a small role in the tv movie Crown Prince Rudolph in 2006! She played Marie Henriette of Belgium, born AD of Austria and Rudolph's mother-in-law. :-)

Archduchess Francesca wrote a letter to Kurier in which she stated that she would support Alexander van der Bellen for president if she could vote.

Archduchess Francesca: "Austrians Are At Crossroads" | The Royal Forums

Now I am wondering: why can't she vote? Is she not an Austrian or are members of the Habsburg family not allowed to vote?

Francesca does not hold the Austrian citizenship therefore she can not vote.

Unfortunately am not sure about Francesca's citizenship. I always thought she holds a British one but I could be totally wrong. But since English is her first language .....

She is, or at least was, Swiss, born in Lusanne. Though she has lived in the UK and US in the past. Her father was a Dutch born Swiss National. Her mother, his third wife, was a Kiwi born British citizen.
