While looking on articles about AD Otto, I stumbled over this one aout ADss Fransesca's birthday party on June 8th 2011:

Happy Birthday, Francesca Habsburg

It says that AD Karl also attended.

Does Archduke Karl still believes in the restoration of Monarchy in Austria?

The first Lady of the House of Habsbourg is not the Head's wife as before but Archduke Otto 's daughter n°4 , Archduchess Gabriela (a divorcee).

As long as she is married to Archduke Karl, his wife Francesca will be the "First Lady" of the Family.

Three years ago it was claimed that Francesca would divorce Karl but they are still married... And why should they divorce? Both have no new partner, both are catholic and being the wife of the Head of the House of Habsburg means a top position in Austria's more or less openly Royalty and aristocracy-loving society. Plus their children, even though they live with Karl in Salzburg, would surely suffer from a divorce.

Francesca will not be Head of the Order of Starry Cross, although she is married to Karl.
The Head of the Order of Starring Cross is Archduchess Gabrielle.
She is a divorcee but Amedeo wrote that her wedding was annulled canonically.

I thought Karl had moved to Vienna?

I read recently, where I don't recall, of Francesca speaking of the problems her children encountered in school because they had the name Habsburg, so she ensured they used a different surname. Is that correct?

Do Karl and his family have social standing in Austria because they are the "first couple" of the Habsburgs?

I am sure the Habsburg children must encounter the same problems rich kids face on schools. If you add a very prestigious last name, the situation gets worse.

Karl and family have an enormous social standing in Austria and other countries. This does not mean that they must deal with rude attitudes from now and then. But hey, that's royalty, it happens to the British the Sweddish and all Royal families. Lots of privileges but lots of exposure and they can not fight back when facing rudeness and insult.

The children don't live with Karl in Salzburg. Both Karl and Francesca live in Vienna but not together. Eleonore goes to school in Switzerland (at Le Rosey like Francesca did) and the younger ones go to school in Vienna.
There was a News article that Eleonore used the name Thyssen when on social networking sites etc. but apart from that all the kids use the Habsburg name.

That is absolutely true. Karl would never agree to a divorce, his position as Head of the family is already heavily critisized. Even his own uncles didn't accept him as Head and AD Carl Ludwig and AD Felix didn't attend his wedding to Francesca because she was not a suitable bride according to the Family Laws even if AD Otto did agree to the wedding.

Wow! Generally, "Thyssen" would already be a recognizable name which one would want to avoid using so not to attract attention. Unless, I guess, that other possible name is Habsburg.

For a private but very accurate source, I have learnt she doesn't use any more the name Thyssen and she may use the name Habsburg.
