It would hard to describe this as a private funeral since its appearance is semi-state if not full state. Can you imagine the trappings of what the state funeral will be like for a former head of state and Royal House!

It looked better organized than the funeral of Queen Fabiola of the Belgians, that is for sure.

Yes he was weeping inside the palace as the ceremony commenced.

This is a trumpeteer from the Romanian armed forces. I think he has The Greater Arms of the Kingdom of Romania attached to his instrument? See picture.

That is quite surprising. Official republican military using former royal arms. It looks like it was stored in an archive and used it for the funeral. Compare it with the coat of arms from the Republic of Romania: picture.

Princess Margarita wore a blue-silver ribbon with a silver medal;

Princess Elena, Mr Alexander Nixon McAteer, Princess Maria and Princess Sofia wore a blue-silver ribbon with a golden medal;

Mr Radu Duda, Mr Nicholas Medforth Mills and Miss Elisabeth Biarneix wore no decorations.

Are these Royal Orders or are it commemorative medals?

Perhaps Nicholas was also stripped of his orders and medals?! In his "princely days" he always wore decorations when it was required, so...

Not to be meant offensive, but IMO the only ladies of the royal family looking somehow regal or representable are the CPrincess and her youngest sister Marie!

Its a pity black veils also seemed to have come out of fashion at royal funerals!

This is necessary to distinguish:

A funeral of a Queen without a throne, because her country is a republic, Queen Maria Jose of Italy, for example. It was a funeral of Royal houses, the Royal family of Italy invited to the Royal houses..

And a state funeral of a Republic to a Queen. It is, the Republic who invites and who decides This is different.

It was not "a state funeral of a Republic to a Queen". It was a private funeral, with assistence from the republican state. That is something completely different.

Alexander Nixon McAteer is the second husband of Princess Elena of Romania and therefore the stepfather of Nicholas and Karina Medforth-Mills. Their father Robin Medforth-Mills died in 2002, when Nicholas was 7 and Karina was 3. Nicholas was born in Switzerland. His current country of residence is not clear since his departure from the Royal House. Karina was born and still lives in the United Kingdom.

Elisabeth Biarneix is -like Nicholas- a grandchild of former King Michael. She is the daughter of Princess Sophia of Romania and her former husband Alain Biarneix. She was born in Italy and lives in France. When Sophia married Alain, this was completely against the will of her father. He stripped her from her titles and threw her out of the Royal House. The couple divorced in 2002 and five years later, both Sophia and Elisabeth appeared in King Michael's Fundamental Rules of the Romanian Royal Family: back in grace and favour, so it seems.

As always, there is no Mr. Radu Duda, so one assumes the person in question is H.R.H Prince Radu of Romania. One should not need to remind the same people over and over, that if they accept the position of the King as head of the Royal House of Romania, one has to accept his power when it comes to bestowing titles.

The funeral was very dignified indeed. The family was clearly distressed, and I certainly hope they are now, thirteen days after the demise of the Queen, can find peace and comfort in having laid her to rest in a Romania that has shown great homage to the consort of their former King.

Royal funeral for Romania's uncrowned Queen Anne - BBC News

A well summed-up article about the life and funeral of the Queen, and the current state of the Romanian Royal Family.

I think he's the only foreign head of state attending. Maybe the Moldovan presidential couple is there too, but I don't know them.
That is interesting. Is there any pictures of them or were they mentioned during the broadcast?

I do not think that Prince Lorenz or Princess Marie-Astrid were representing their monarchs, given that the funeral is not on the respective agendas.
