It undoubtedly will not have warmed the relationships between the German and Romanian Hohenzollerns. When the Fürst and the Erbprinz would have been at the funeral, maybe that was a "distraction" as it would make the media aware of the original successors until 2007, before former King Michael tried to change it.
Why would the Prince of Hohenzollern or his son attend the funeral. (Georg represented himself). There are no close ties between the families

And with that settled, let's focus on the topic of this thread.

Further repetative posts pointing out wishes for the Romanian succession will be deleted. It is distasteful to abuse this thread - dedicated to the death and funeral of Queen Anne - to push your own agenda. Especially since the same posters have been pushing the exact same agenda ad nauseam for years.

The different Celebrations in Switzerland and in Romania were un "sans faute".
The Queen's Religion was respected.

Were will go the Regina Ana Cross ?

What will change for the Organisation of the King's Funerals ?

I noticed no high Security in Curtea de Arges.

The Queen's Funeral was not only Catholic even if she was Catholic herself.

That is patently false.

I posted on this topic yesterday.

All four daughters (with husbands) were in attendance.

All four daughters were at the Requiem Mass even if some Televisions spoke only about the eldest one.

It is telling that the Romanian State offered the Queen in Death, the dignity and honours it denied her in Life...

May she rest in peace.

There was almost a national state Funeral and the authorities were very respectful in these circumstances.

In Scotland the children of your cousin are referred to as nieces and nephews, perhaps it's the same in Romania.

Pretty common here. Not always, but in many families, relatives the same age as your parents in general aunt/uncle. My only sister has no kids, but I have 15 nieces and nephews, half or so call me Aunty (those who don't either as I have only seen them once or twice, and some their dad's family strictly believes it should only be used for parents' siblings/spouses).

Growing up I had too many to count and many were not remotely related (friends/ aunts or uncles of my cousins but on their unrelated side). I am Aunty to many friend's kids. To many it is simply a term donoting a close usually familial bond between different generations.

The descendants of Queen Ana's brothers did not attend the Funerals of the Queen. Any reason for that?

Why don't you write them a letter and ask them?

None of them are members of this forum.


_______

Anyways, that advice aside, I know that one of the children of Prince Jacques did send her condolences to the Royal Family. More messages of sympathy were very likely sent from other nieces and nephews. It must be understood that the children of Anne's brothers are private people, they lead normal lives.

It's absolutely amazing and lovely to view the reaction of the Romanian public has shown to Queen Anne as well as the Govt. The respect and mourning shown in many of the photos are beyond words. This has to be a comfort for HM's family in a way.

I saw in life the Duc of Parma entering the Church.
On pictures I see that Inside He was next to the devasted Princess Maria as representant of the House of Bourbon Parma, the Queen's House by birth.
