On this one they indeed seem happy.But on the last one... i think it was sunny and thats why their faces look so.. "cheerfull" :) I speak for Zita and Karland... The other people... i'm not commenting it's obvious on their faces.
Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.

By marrying the heir in second of the Austro Hungarian Empire, Zita was a prestigious marriage that was almost unexpected for her. The joy of her family was also proud. But her brothers and sisters, especially Francesca which Zita was very close, would certainly be sad at the prospect of soon being separated from their sister.

Yes...but so many of them became nuns anyway (both full & half-sisters). She was also the half-sister to Princess Maria Luisa of Bulgaria. She was thus half-aunt to Boris III.

It looks as though this picture was taken early in the war, and Zita is visiting one of the medical units run by the Knights of Malta.

If the lessons of history teach us anything it is that nobody learns the lessons that history teaches us.

No guesses!   ;)   They are listed as Archdukes Charles, Felix and Rudolph of Austria, sons of Empress Zita, when they served in the "Austrian Battalion" in Indiana during WWII.
