I did not see Prince Lorenz at Curtea de Arges. He should have been on the second row next to the Head of the Houses of Prussia and Baden, as in the morning;

I believe the Duke of Parma was seated together with the family during the indoors ceremony in Bucharest, sat with the foreign guests outside at the palace square and rejoined together with the family in the cathedral of Curtea. It looks like Archduke Lorenz and the other foreign royals had a different schedule of the proceedings.

It is rather curious there was an Orthodox ceremony at Curtea de Arges for the late Queen but no Catholic Mass was asked to be said.

I don't find it curious at all. Different services in different places happen all the time and most probably were defined earlier in time by the Queen herself. With my own father, there were two different memorial services in two different places with two different sets of people attending. Both were meaningful.

The Queen was Catholic and this thing must be respected.

The Royal Family she married into wasn't, and as the constitution you keep touting as the holy sacrament of Romanian monarchy demands that the King and his descendants belong to the Orthodox faith, it would be rather a miss not to have an Orthodox ceremony for the Queen upon her passing, in addition to a Catholic presence where appropriate.
The Queens funeral was a good multi-faith example, and I think it's safe to say, wasn't organized contrary to her own wishes.

Nobody says the different religious denominations can't organize commemorations of the late Queen but the main ones attended by the Family should be Catholic according to the faith of the late Queen.

The Royal Family is orthodox, and the funeral services was dignified and appropriate. To keep throwing distrust on this issue, is very unfair (although predictable) towards the Royal Family, who it's safe to say organized the funeral according to the wishes of the Queen.

Now that is a beautiful tombstone. The speed of all this indicates that the funerary arrangements have been prepared in advance.

Crown Princess Margareta has expressed thanks to all of those who sent messages of condolence following the death of Queen Anne.

This tomb follows the stule of the other royal tombs at Curtea de Arges.

The beautiful statement by the Crown Princess, and the images of the tomb of the Queen, feels like a natural end to the process surrounding the passing of the Queen, and the purpose of this thread.

If you look at the numbers we shall see that at the Funerals in Bucharest there were probably around 3000 people. Less than 10 000 paid their homage to the Queen at the Royal Palace.

Those numbers were estimations during the live broadcasts, and obviously those are widely unreliable.
The only thing we can safely draw from the funeral itself, was that it was a well-viewed and dignified occasion, and I'd say tens of thousands of people filing past the coffin of a Queen who never had the chance to live in Romania while her husband was reigning King, is a sign of enormous respect.

The majority reacted with a lot of respect even if there were journalists or politicians that contested her right to be called Queen.
