And if is not surprising why where there no Days of National mourning when Queen Marie-José of Italy died or when Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria died?

it's not like the british monarchy where to be called a queen reigning or consort you have to be crowned she is simply queen cause here husband is king it's like any married woman who is referred to as a ( Mrs ) instead of ( Ms ) .
and you can't compare italy and bulgaria with romania , romania lately have been discussing an official role for the royal house and had been recogniseing the order's the royal house had been awarding due to their growing popularity and public approval of the royal house

There was a Divine Liturgy on Saturday the 6th of August for the late Queen celebrated in the Greek-Catholic church "St. Peter and Paul" in Arad organized by the "Amicii Regelui Mihai" Association. Sunday the 7th of August there will be a moment if orayer fir the late Queen in the Orthodox Cathedral of Alba Iulia organized by the Movement for Kingdom and Crown.

Not the case at all - a Queen in the UK becomes one the instant the previous monarch dies and either they themselves or their husbands succeed e.g. QEII was Queen and called such the day her father died in February 1952 not when she was crowned in June 1953 some 16 months later.

Edward VIII is listed in the number of monarchs and he was never crowned having abdicated before his coronation.

I have to agree that considering that she was 92 and in poor health that her death was not unexpected. Still I'd always found her to be a sparkling personality who had lead an extraordinary life. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing her reminisce about her life in the documentary about the children of Christian IX.

Two pensioners, the first who signed in the condolences book for Queen Anne - The Romania Journal

Small squares in Curtea de Arges, Bucharest could be named after Queen Anne

Prince Nicholas will be attending the funeral of his grandmother.

Along with their mother Princess Irina, Michael and Angelica Kreuger will not be present at the ceremonies for Queen Anne.

The Royal House is supposed to announce on 9 August whether King Michael will be in a good enough condition to go to Romania for the burial of his wife. It is presumed that Crown Princess Margarita and Prince Radu, Princess Elena along with her husband Mr Alexander Nixon McAteer and her daughter Karina, Princess Sophie and Princess Marie will be present as well. So far the only foreign guest who is confirmed is the Duke of Parma.

It would have been not surprising if this was about a decade long serving Queen - but a state funeral for a lady who´s only merit it was to be married to the country´s former King is something I didn´t expect.
I didn´t state I´m against it or that she doesn´t deserve it!

When you look at Greece it seems very hard to imagine that both the King or Queen, who at least acted as monarchs for 10 years, will be given this treatment by the government when this sad and hopefully far away day may come! And King Constantine served in the greek army, won the country´s first olympic gold medal and hurried to live in his homeland again, after finding a suitable place, as soon as he could.
That example of King Constantine is a good one. Or King Simeon whom even served as Prime Minister. The Day of National Mourning for a lady who never was Queen-Consort in Romania and even never lived there is a remarkable honour by two republics.

This funeral gives a momentum to the former royal family. Too bad that they can not appear as an united front, given the absence of one daughter and two grandchildren.

because they,at the very least and at best,were mere symbols to a handfull,while Anne was very respected and very much loved member of a House still revered in Romania to a degree that was certainly not availeble in either Italy nor Bulgaria at the time!!

How do you know the Queen Anne "was very respected and very much loved member of a House still revered in Romania" and Queen Maria-José maybe not? It is all an assumption. No one has asked in Brasov, Constanta or Bucharest what the Romanians think.

Until 2002 it was forbidden for King Umberto and his son to enter Italy. Queen Maria-José and her daughters were allowed to do so, but sided with the King. The Italian Government (like the Greek one) kept the former royal family far away and in obscurity, so the comparison is quite difficult with Queen Anne, who was free to enter Romania for 27 years but never lived in that country anyway, despite the disposal of several residences.

The reason for non attendence of Princess Marie Christine for her Father's, Mother brother and half Brother Funerals is known but you will not find it on internet.

Not all the Romanians are monarchists but the majority would be very respectful towards the Queen because she was the King's Consort.

I do happen to know the late Queen Anne was respected,and I do not feel any,read any..reason to serve you with proof other then just read what others post in regard to- and the response in Romania itself.

I never said Marie -José was less loved,it was the situation in Italy in which members of it's former RF were banned untill not so long ago.but then you,as a connosseur in matters Royal and not,already knew that,didn't you.

The Romanian royal family has an semi official role in the country. They were allowed to return, and property returned. The same could not be said for Marie Jose and Giovanna. The government even recognizes the role - and if the legislation is passed, the royal house will have a real status.

Please note that several posts have been either deleted or edited because they contained empty, bickering and/or personal comments. Please avoid getting into personal arguments or posting sarcastic or snide remarks and they are disruptive to the thread and to other members who wish to read and discuss about the death of Queen Anne.

It is a pity the King won't be at the funeral. It is also a pity only 6 of the 13 descendants of the Queen will attend.
