Could also be that the solution with the Veste Heldburg is only temporär. One of the Newspaper Articles stated this and that her remains could transferred to Vienna at a later point (possible when Otto dies).

Yes, it makes sense...it would be "strange" if Otto, one of the most important members of the Imperial Family, head of the Family for 85 years, will be buried in the grave of his parents in law.
And maybe Archduchess Regina will be buried in Veste Heldburg in order to celebrate her funeral in a short time; I mean, Archduke Carl Ludwig's funeral was celebrated 32 days after his death; maybe due to the bureaucracy, to get the necessary permission to bury him in the Kapuzinergruft? Maybe because they needed time to prepare the crypt and his grave?
I don't know the reason of this large period of time from his death to his funeral; but if it was due to something unavoidable for bury him in the Kapuzinergruft, it's also possible that Archduke Otto and his children have decided for the temporary burial in order to cope with the bureaucracy or whatever else is with calm and less pressures.

I think in Carl Ludwig's case it had also to that he died short before Christmas. So the4y needed more time. When Empress Zita died her funeralwas about 2 1/2 weeks after her death. and as the places at the Kapuzinergruft are already prepared.

Very sad news about the passing of the Archduchess Regina. She must have lived an interesting life.

Cool

Thank you so much for the pictures Stefan. The church is beautiful inside and just right for the Archduchess to lie in repose.

The Requiem for Archduchess Regina was held today at the St. Pius church at Pöcking. According to Reports on the bavarian Radio Archduke Otto was not present as he is very weakened after the death of his wife.

Here is a picture of Archduke Rudolph ans Archduchess Anna Gabriele (erroneously identified as Archduchess Yola; I guess they mean Yolande)

Yes Prince Rasso was there. Also Prince Alexander of Schaumbrug-Lippe, Duke Friedrich of Württemberg, the Margravine of Baden, hereditary Coubnt Erich of Waldburg-Zeil. But Lorenz attended alone without Astrid.

I was deeply impressed by the faithfulness of the old militaries and people attending the religious office and may imagine how more impressing archiduke's Otto funerals will be.

Was Georg Friedrich of Prussia there? No British royalty attended, which is par for the course I guess.

Both Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia and his mother, Duchess Donata of Oldenburg, were listed to attend the funeral; but I didn't see any picture of them; moreover the lists were unofficial, and several royals listed actually were not present (like Princess Astrid of Belgium: I've read that she would have been present as representative of the Belgian Royal Family, but actually she didn't attend).
I don't think any member of the British Royal Family attended, but to be honest it doesn't surprise me...

What about Saxe-Meiningen Family and Liechtenstein Family? Were some members of these families at the funeral? For Liechtenstein, I hope at least some of the nephews of Archduke Otto, the children of his sister Elisabeth.

Obituary from the London Telegraph:

Archduchess Regina von Habsburg - Telegraph

Archduchess Regina von Habsburg, who died on February 3 aged 85, was the wife of Dr Otto von Habsburg – formerly Crown Prince of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and latterly a highly respected member of the European parliament; had history taken a different turn, she would have been Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary.

I'm still sad about the death of the Duchess. It looked like it was a nice funeral.
