In the Second World War, he served until late 1944 in the German Wehrmacht as a pilot. After leaving the military, he moved to Törzburg, where he and his family lived in Schloss Bran. After the coup d'état, and the end of Romania's alliance with Germany on 23 August 1944, the family and their servants were in danger of being interned or thrown out of the country, as German citizens. It was only when Michael I abdicated on 30 December 1947 and was forced to leave the country, that Habsburg-Lorraine's family were exiled. The family spent time in Switzerland, then in Argentina, then lived in the early 1950s in the United States.
