Thanks Marie-Charlotte

Are there any pictures of her and/or her parents   ?
David McIntosh has a picture in his wonderful picture book "Die unbekannten Habsburger", where Camilla von Habsburg is seen sitting next to her grandmother Gertrud von Habsburg, while her aunt Claudia von Habsburg and her father Maximilian von Habsburg are standing behind.

Happy Birthday to HI&RH Archduke Rudolf!...I don't know if it's just my impression, but in that photo I can see a big resemblance with her mother, Empress Zita...

Yet another death in the Habsburg Family as Prince Alexis zu Windisch-Graetz,
son of Archduchess Sophie and Prince Hugo zu Windisch-Graetz died aged 21 due to a car accident.

What incredible sad news,and what a young age.How tragic.

My sympathies go out to Sophie and Hugo zu Windisch-Graetz, their children Maximilian and Larissa and their family.

Sophie lost her 26-year-old sister Elisabeth in 1983, her father Ferdinand in 2004 and now she also lost her 18-year-old son. That's so sad.

May he rest in peace.

Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

It is always so sad to learn of the death of a young life, just getting started.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

Hi,

More tragic still is that today is their 20th wedding anniversary (Feb. 11th, 1990)
This must be doubly horrifying - on a day for congratulations, to be burying your son...

 Oh  how tragic, Larry.  I know it is not the same,  but a young friend of mine committed suicide  this week,  just as  my partner & I are making plans for out 40th anniversary. I can relate to their pain, in some ways.

A dear friend put in a request to split the topics dealing with the tragic death of their son, Alexis. I felt perhaps the best course would be to make the thread about the family so that it wouldn't become one of those very short threads that fades away, and perhaps becomes deleted/merged (maybe back into the death announcements one) later on.
