But AD Felix attended the funeral of his brother Carl Ludwig a few years ago in Vienna.

Yeah well, that was a typical Austrian solution. He had a special permission then to enter Austria for this occasion. The same was the case with Empress Zita when she visited Austria in 1982 after more than 60 years in exile ......

In Austria we have exceptions for every rule,that´s why it´s such a good place to live ;-)
Short German article Kaisersohn Felix Habsburg in Mexiko gestorben - Inland - derStandard.at
(It´s only a short article because Standard is a rather left-wing-oriented newspaper)

I just love Austria! Thanks for the article, Blauer Engel!

yep, according to the article in "Neues Volksblatt" he will buried - as we all have already assumed - in the Monastery Muri in Switzerland where his parents' hearts are kept. An exact date has not been set yet but probably by the end of September. Neues Volksblatt

It certainly would have been 'interesting' to watch the Austrian authorities refuse to allow a frail 95-year old gentleman to cross the border and enter the country to attend his brother's funeral on the grounds that he was considered - in 2011 - to be a threat to the stability of the Austrian State.

As I mentioned above an exception was already made at Empress Zita's funeral when Felix and Carl Ludwig were allowed to stay 3 days in Austria. And in later years but most definitely after 1996 they were several times in Austria (mostly for family affairs or for court matters concerning the lost properties here in Austria) and every time they did have a special permission to enter the state. The late President Dr. Thomas Klestil found the Habsburg laws already that ridiculous that he granted them their special permissions every time. The articles about this matter are somewhat confusing 'cause technically the late President broke with the Austrian constitution by doing so and Felix and Carl Ludwig never gave up the claim to the throne although several newspapers are claiming otherwise..... . So I should have written in the above post: Felix didn't have the permission to enter Austria but I am convinced IF he had wanted to visit Otto's funeral nobody would have denied him that right ;-) That's the way such things are handled in our pretty state.

I see that Archduchess Margaritha was able to attend this funeral, so health reasons might not have been the reason for her absence in Vienna. But I might be reading too much in these things of course.

She also attended the Wedding of Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia in Ptsdam. And for AD Otto she attended the first Reqium at Pöcking

She's married to Carl Dunning-Gribble. Best to check the Online Gotha for such questions.
