    Wedding of granddaughter of Franz Josef of Austria to Archduke George Hapsburg, traditional Austrian ceremony.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Emperor's Grandchild Married at St. Gilgen, Salzburg".

    Austria.

    Various shots of wedding of obscure European Royalty; Countess Walburg Hoenims (grandchild of late Emperor Franz Josef of Austria) and Archduke George Habsburg Lowtringham Toscana. The wedding takes place in village church. Many of the guests arrive in Austrian National dress. The Archbishop of Salzburg performs the marriage ceremony. After the wedding, the happy couple and the guests follow the local band in a procession around the town - an Austrian tradition, apparently. Many of the men wear ceremonial robes or military uniform. After the procession they head to an Inn.
