Thanks for the photos!
Archduchess Marie Christine is quite charming. Pregnancy makes her glow.

I always wonder with these non reigning /minor royal families, what do they live on? Are they rich and where do they live. I have repeatedly noticed in these forums, that these kind of families tend to marry more into their own kind than the reigning royalty, its as if to secure their shaky position in society.

Marie Christine's late grandfather, Archduke Carl Ludwig, had his own company working in financial field; I don't have detailed informations about it, but according to some reports I read at the time of his death it was quite a large company.
Also Archduke Carl Christian works in financial field, if I remember correctly.
As for Rodolphe, he works for a bank in Bruxelles.

The company was Genstar and was based in the United States and Canada. It was a large building products and real estate development company with a significant venture capital operation in Silicon Valley. The obituary stated that Carl Ludwig started it from scratch.

The Habsburgs lost everything after World War I. There was an interview with one of the brothers a few years ago. He said that the family decided that Otto would go into politics and and other brothers would go into business in order to support the family. They did and it is my impression that they were very successful.

Old news articles from 1989 said that the Austrian government would permit a state funeral for the Empress as long as the Habsburg family paid all of the bills. It looks very lavish in the videos as were the funerals of Archduke Carl Ludwig and Archduke Rudolph. The wedding of Archduchess Marie-Christine also looked very lavish, but in very good taste, based on all of the pictures that have been posted. The family has to be very wealthy to be able to afford these types of expenditures.

Why have they moved there?

Did Rodolphe switch jobs?

The last that I had heard was that he working for a major international bank in Brussels.

I always thought that they are living in Brussels. I know that Marie Christine's cousin Princess Marie-Astrid of Liechtenstein is living in Argentina though.

I believe Marie-Astrid of Liechtenstein is in Argentina, not Marie-Christine. I assume Marie-Christine is in Brussels, but I'm not positive.

Does Archduke Rudolf (brother of Archduke Christian) manage the business?

I really don't know that; Archduke Rudolf seems to live very very privately, even more than all siblings, and I don't know almost anything about him.
