yes, Sofia did have security, but nothing like what it would be for the British royals who have far more security than the Spanish. Ditto for the Swedes (but they did not come) or the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. I was one of the guests, too, and we all stayed at the hotel. If a member of the BRF was at the hotel, their security would have been tighter, there would have been sweeps, etc. Some of the royals stayed on the tenth floor, some on the 11th and some of the 12th (the floor I was on). You were not there, I was. The Prince of Wales visited Romania several months ago, and also visited with Margarita and Radu at the Elisabeta Palace ...I can assure you the guests or the King did not think it was rude at all. I do not know if anyone from the Dutch, Norwegian or Danish RFs were invited. I can assure you that no one was sitting at the King's table or the Queen's table dissing anyone. I was at the King's table, by the way. It would have been a nightmare at the Intercontinental. Sophie arrived with her cousin, Tatiana and Tatiana's husband, as well as her dog, Tipsy. She was not accompanied by a personal protection officer ... if Charles were there, he would have had his own PPO.
