Coffins of Habsburgs arrive in Austria
Mariazell: The coffins of the son of Austria`s last emperor and his wife have been brought to Austria and are lying in state at a cathedral associated with their dynasty.
Family members of the late Otto Von Habsburg and his wife Regina met the coffins as they arrived on Tuesday evening at the Mariazell basilica, site of Habsburg marriages, requiems and other ceremonies.
The coffins are to be buried on Saturday in the Emperor Tomb in Vienna, below the Austrian capital`s Capuchin Church.
