Philip was going to the 70th bday, but the volcano changed plans. However, there have been reps at the royal weddings. However, invitations to royal events are not always sent to every royal house. It is not required. Anne was never the queen consort of a sovereign nation. Charles is very close to Margarita, but British protocol is different. The British embassy sent out an announcement saying that the queen would be represented as would Charles ... Charles does not usually have a separate rep at major royal events. However, he owns property and is close to Margarita. She knows he would not have been able to come. In terms of protocol, Anne is not entitled to same representation if she were the consort of a reigning monarch. Michael might get more, because he was a reigning monarch. I am surprised that Crown Prince Alexander is not going ... that is the one that surprises me.
Indeed, the absence of Crown Prince Alexander is more conspicuous than any other attendee or lack thereof. Well, him and Queen Sofia. I did think she might attend in the end.

The palace said they would release a list on Thursday with the foreign royals. The list was released on Thursday, today. I was told yes, they were surprised by several declines (and they were not talking about the British as Charles made sure he sent a rep, as well as the Queen). They knew that Charles would not be able to attend due to protocol.

The British sent more than adequate representatives, in all fairness. Some of the other declines are more odd to me, but do we know if all the reigning European houses were issued invitations?

I think posters here (and other boards) have an unrealistic view of who should attend an event. I loved Anne .. but we have to remember that she was never a reigning consort. Romania is not a monarchy. Attending the birthday party or the 60th anniversary of their wedding were not state occasions.

Indeed Marlene,many have no clue whatshowever on protocol and who's who and what and what not.

It is that that keeps foreign Royals from attending more then anything else,
no hard feelings on either sides,but the metier knows the rules and lives up to that.

Maybe its just me but I would think that when someone such as Queen Anne passes away, the focus should be on the person whose life we celebrate and mourn our loss of their presence.

To be honest, I know very little about Queen Anne and I'm not gathering too much insight from the postings in this thread. Its been more about who is going and who is not going and what proper protocol is and isn't. The deceased has seemed to become more of a fixture like a centerpiece on the table rather than thoughts being shared of her lifetime.

Funerals are times we do gather together and remember those who have passed and it is mostly for the living but I do think that the deceased should be the central focus.

The Duke of Parma is no member of the Royal House of the Netherlands, but as son of Princess Irene, grandson of Queen Juliana, nephew of Queen Beatrix, cousin of King Willem-Alexander he is very much a member of the royal family, of course.

The State Information Agency stated that the King will be represented by his cousin, the Duke of Parma, that HM's Ambassador, Ms Maris-Stella Ronner Grubačić will lay a floral wreath from the King and Queen and that she will sign the official book of condoleance in name of the King and representing the Kingdom of the Netherlands. So the Dutch seem appropriately represented: both the state (via the Ambassador) and the Royal House (via the Duke of Parma).

In advance to the funeral the Dutch journalist and royal expert Hans Jacobs (working for several newspapers) already explained the complicated protocol regarding the attendance. First of all it is a huge difference when a royal dies in a monarchy because it becomes a state affair. In essence there is no difference between a former reigning family as Romania and a former reigning family as Wrttemberg or Orlans. The element of the state, with which friendly and diplomatic relations are maintained, is not there.

This means that the attendance will depend on personal or family-relations. The Dutch royals went en masse to the funeral of Prince Kardam of Tirnovo. Why? Because they had personal friendship with that family. The Dutch journalist already predicted that the Duke of Parma would represent the King: he is a high-ranked royal himself, a cousin of the King nd head of the House Bourbon-Parma, the paternal House of the late Queen. And so all reigning Royal Houses have to deal with this puzzle, and decide on the representation, so wrote the journalist.

All the three Benelux countries tried to be well represented.
The Duke of Parma will attend but what about the Princes of Bourbon-Pame descending from the brothers of Queen Ana?

I think we need to know how close and/or intensive the relations were between aunt Anne and her De Bourbon de Parme nephews, nieces and cousins. The reaction of the Duke of Parma that Anne was "a dear/darling aunt" and that she "meant a lot to his family" seems to indicate that they indeed had contacts. But of course maybe the contacts were more frequent to the one than to the other in that very extended family.

I expected to see Princess Irene of Greece on the list as well btw.

We'll see who's there or not tomorrow,but it will be a well covered ceremony for the late Queen.
