Archduke Imre & Archduchess Kathleen
 
Royals in the Pink City - The Times of India . Archduke Imre and Archduchess Katie are in India!

Royal couple of Austria? Can they not get the facts straight at least once??? sigh

NGalitzine 09-25-2012 01:59 PM

Does the Maharaja announce who his house guests are or did somoene else perhaps alert the press?

NGalitzine 09-28-2012 07:41 PM

For a couple who are essentially private citizens, and who most people could not pick out of a line up, an awful lot of honeymoon details seem to make it into the press. I am curious as to who could be giving the press such info and why they would even want to. It seems unlikely that the Archdukes parents would tell the press anything about their sons honeymoon trip to India.

HRHHermione 09-28-2012 08:09 PM

I didn't even think about that. Very, very curious indeed...

Funnily enough, the very same topic popped up on another message board!

How did the couple get an invitation from Maharajah of Jaipur? Is there any particular reasons for Archduchess Kathleen to give any interviews? Aren't honeymoons supposed to be a very private thing?

She's proven countless times that she is not a particularly private person, as long as it publicises her and thus her views. I must admit I thought her behaviour might change once those vows were said, but apparently she is just as fame-hungry as she was when she met her Archduke. How AD Carl-Christian and Princess Marie-Astrid approved this match I have no idea... :whistling:

At the time of their wedding it was stated that the honeymoon destination was being kept "strictly secret" implying that the newlyweds wished to enjoy their time in utter privacy. Perfectly understandable.

Now we not only know where they are but are receiving regular photos and quotes from the couple to assure "friends and fans" of the new Archduchess that she is still "just Katie"??!

Unbelievable.

HRHHermione 09-29-2012 11:39 PM

So, so tacky. I just- I very rarely take a visceral dislike to people, especially people I've never met but I just really think this girl is a piece of work.

I wondered that too, especially since he is a young boy and he probably had never heard of either of them.
I am wondering if they actually stayed in his palace or just in the part of the palace which is a hotel and maybe based on their "titles" they got invited to the residence for tea or dinner.

Of course now we have to be kept informed that she and her husband are spending time at Mother Theresas house working with the poorest of the poor.

They must be the first couple to either take a publicist on their honeymoon or one of them is sending regular updates to media. Your guess on which one that might be:whistling:

I don't think I would care to meet Mrs Habsburg.

Moonmaiden23 09-30-2012 12:39 AM

Philippe Junot invited a publicist along on his Tahitian honeymoon with Princess Caroline in 1978. He didn't inform his young bride that they would have a "friend" along with them to photograph the romantic time for posterity until they were already there.

Caroline was terribly disappointed but kept her uneasiness to herself.

Well, we all know how marriage with the opportunist bon-vivant Junot ended less than two years later.

As for Imre and "Mrs Habsburg" (thanks NGalitzine)...either one of them has hired a publicist for their honeymoon, or one of them is simply leaking info the Press to promote themselves as a couple.

This is not a good start, imo.

Aaaand of course the original source on this story is a anti-abortion website, and of course the source in India spoke to Katie directly. (Per this site, which also calls Katie a "Pro-Life Princess": LifeSiteNews Mobile | Pro-life princess visits Mother Theresa’s home in India)

This is so gross. So distasteful. It's a very good indication that she intends to use her new family ties to promote her fringe beliefs and just uggggghhhh.

I can't think of any other couple that posed for press pictures and provided quotes throughout their honeymoon.

I have to admit, this is really unfortunate. Especially since there can be no doubt Imre and Kathleen themselves are alerting the media (those who are interested anyway) on their whereabouts.

Not cool at all! Sorry folks, but I can't help but think that Princess Katie is one manipulative customer. I just can't see her as the daughter-in-law of the ultra discreet Princess Marie-Astrid.

Al_bina 10-12-2012 07:46 PM

The photos come as no surprise to me.

Didn't Victoria and Daniel posed for press pictures also?

Victoria and Daniel, who are followed everyday of their lives unlike the unknown Irme and Kathleen, allowed one reputable Swedish paper to ask a few questions and take a few pictures for a few hours so that they may enjoy the rest of their honeymoon in peace and quiet.

They didn't provide photos and quotations at every stop of their honeymoon. Carl-Christian and Marie-Astrid are soon going to learn that they made a huge mistake approving of Irme's marriage with Kathleen...
