Emperor Karl and Empress Zita inspecting a flag during the War :

Do you know where I can find that video?, I know that it's from the Istituto Luce but I can't find it on their web site, thank you in advance.

This video is on Youtube.com. It has two distinct sequences. I struggled to find it and clicking from link to link I could find it.

Here's the direct link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWgXy0QB2fw&feature=related

The wedding

On 02:01, I think it is Franz Joseph in Bavaria, what do you think?

You can see also Miguel Braganza and Marie Valerie (she has a nice smiling)

I read the book quite some time ago. According to Mr. Leo Hammerschmidt's book she lived in a type of convent, or a house provided by the Bishop of Quebec. Outside of Quebec City, a suburb called Syllery.

Only 2 of her sons went to the University there. “Universite de Laval a Quebec”. It was Archduke Carl Ludwig and Archduke Rudolf.

She lived there 9 years, the long and cold winters made that she requested to go further south. Then she moved close to N.Y.
The book is worth reading but Mr. Hammerschnid is not an historian and has certain interpretations that need not be 100% correct. None the less he makes a recollection of interviews from people who had contact with the Empress during that time and wrote down his impressions.  It is evident that Mr. Hammerschmidt is a whole hearted monarchist.

His book is the only written recollection that I know of from the time the Empress lived in Canada.

Unfortunately I haven't seen photos of Zita and her children in Canada...

maybe there are some in the last empress of Austria: the story of Her Imperial and Royal Majesty Zita of Habsburg-Lorraine and her sojourn in Québec City, 1940-1950 ?, Maximilano?...

Someone has he the book  "Das Familienalbum  von Kaiser Karl und Kaiserin Zita" ? I would buy it but I do not know if he has a lot of unpublished photos of Karl and Zita, including their respective youth. Who do I contact about this ? Thank you in advance for the answer.

I ordered that book right today, unfortunately I don't know if it has much of unpublished photos and I'm not sure if I will receive it, since it's not easily available here in Italy. :- (
However, I've ordered the book on this Italian web site: http://www.libreriauniversitaria.it/das-familienalbum-von-kaiser-karl/buch/9783800036264
