well, well, well....a little info
Archduke Imre of Austria, oldest son of Princess Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg and Archduke Carl-Christian of Austria, will marry his American fiancée, Kathleen Walker, in Washington D.C. tomorrow. It's the first Luxembourg related wedding this year. Imre's cousin Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume will marry in October, while his brother Archduke Christoph will tie the knot in December.
The couple first met in October 2010 at a Missa Cantata in honour of Blessed Karl of Austria, Imre's great-grandfather. The Missa was held in the same church where they will marry. The archduke and the former communications director of the Arlington Diocesan Catholic Charities and famous pro-life activist announced their engagement in December of last year.
Together with a friend of Imre's, his brothers Archdukes Christoph and Alexander will act as groomsmen. Their younger sister Archduchess Gabriella will be one of the bridesmaids alongside two sisters of the bride and two friends. Another friend of Kathleen will be her maid of honour, while another sister will be the flower girl. Two brothers of the Archduchess-to-be as ring bearers round up the wedding party.
Kathleen, more commenly known as Katie, is the oldest of several children of Robert S. and Margaret M. Walker. At the time of Katie's birth, her mother was single and unwed.
famous pro-life activist....who the hell heard of her before all this
Thank you Pede!
I certainly had never heard of her AT ALL before this. I follow a couple of pro-choice blogs, and believe me, she's definitely never been mentioned. I've also never, ever seen her on TV. She's not famous
I wonder if her mother's husband adopted her? It's kind of funny how she loves to act holier-than-thou. How quickly she forgets her roots
It's also interesting that she went to a generic state school. NKU is probably an okay school, but it's not the flagship state university, and it's an odd choice for someone who is super duper Catholic. I would have thought that she'd always gone to Catholic schools.
Anywhoo, she seems obnoxious. I'd love to see pics of this disaster of a wedding. I wonder if all of Imre's family will be there
I'd love to know what his parents thought when they first heard they were dating.
Somehow I don't think it was exactly welcome news. I know that they're really religious, but they don't seem to be fanatic fundamentalists.
