Does Karl von Habsburg refer to himself more as Karl von Habsburg than as Archduke Karl of Austria?

He goes by Karl von Habsburg-Lothringen on his Blue Shield bio with no mention of his lineage.

I once attended a talk he gave about his work in Blue Shield International and there was little/no talk of royal ancestors, unlike certain other branches of the family  Whistle

I always smile when I see people described as "of" ..... of Austria which would not know these people or of some backwoods place in say Germany..... and "von" is the same ... less pretentious than Archduke or Prince but in the same space

In Dutch you have "van", which is used in a similar way. But also there are many "van" surnames in Dutch which are used amongst 'commoners'.

In Belgium too. For example Baron  Jean Van Gysel de Meise. I know him from horse shows. He doesn't introduce himself as 'Baron' but it is  van Gysel.

An acquaintance of mine once said that he (and others) only discovered that a (study) friend was a baron, because they needed his passport data for a trip. The passport stated that he was a baron. Fun, but nothing special, their friend would still be the same.

In my college years, there was a fellow student who usually only mentioned part of her name at introductions. Apparently she did this, to make not directly clear to others that she was of noble birth and that her father was a well-known regional high administrator. She still included the 'van' part, but let another part of her double name out. I didn't think much of it at first, in my opinion she was just who she was. A nice girl who you could laugh with, but who could also be substantiated and critical. But later I started to understand when I saw exaggerated reactions from others to her (full) name and parentage.

A few years back there was an interesting program on Dutch television: De Hokjesman

De Hokjesman is a Dutch television program of the VPRO by program maker Michael Schaap, presented by himself and Jurjen Blick as the man behind the scenes.  The "box man" is fascinated by the prevailing box spirit (de hokjesgeest) in the Netherlands versus beyond, while Dutch society is far from homogeneous. The main theme is the subcultures in the Netherlands. The program maker examines the environment of those who are part of it, how they relate to other people and what is common, looking at which written and unwritten laws, rules, codes and taboos they know, what qualities they have in their manners and how they live and survive today.

One of the groups he once had a closer look at was the Dutch nobility. Very interesting, also because of some contradictions within the group (and its members).

Wedding in Austria for Archduchess Gabriella and Prince Henri of Bourbon. (One photo taken of the couple from the back with their toddler daughter on the groom's right.) Champagne
Outdoor Mass and Gabriella appears to be wearing the same veil worn by her sister and sisters-in-law.

Now there's a wedding I did not think would happen.  Still, I predict one more child and a divorce in 5 years.

With that family, more like an annulment.
