I have read it on his FB and I was a bit surprised. Usually a parent or a sibling would be the clostest person to a child. That he thought his grandmaman in far away Switzerland was the closest person during childhood is at the one side sweet from Queen Anne but at the other side surprising: what about mama, papa and sister Karina?

It is not clear yet if the Queen will have Catholic funerals in Bucharest and Orthodox prayers at the burial in Curtea de Arges. She should have had only Catholic Funerals because she was Catholic.

The Royal Family of Romania website is now up and running - it seemed to be closed yesterday. Here is the official announcement of Queen Anne's death in English:

Her Majesty Queen Anne of Romania has died | Familia Regală a României / Royal Family of Romania

The website has also compiled a list of 92 facts concerning the Queen accompanied by a lovely photograph of her:

Regina Ana a României 92 de fapte în 92 de ani | Familia Regală a României / Royal Family of Romania

Some of the things on the list included:

Her love of cycling and fishing.

She worked at the Macys store and Bloomingdales in New York during her time there studying art.

King Michael fell in love with Anne long before she knew. During the war, he saw news footage from Morocco where Anne worked as a nurse and saw her image for a few seconds. He asked the film operator to cut those parts of the film and turn them into small photos that he kept discretely.

During their time living in exile in England, the Queen made furniture instead of buying it so as to save money.

Every time the royal couple moved into a new house, the first song was heard Poema Romanian by George Enescu, a kind of musical blessing of the house.

King and Queen renewed their marriage vows in a Catholic ceremony in Monaco in 1966.

The Queen bred dogs over time and the last pair of dogs she had were chihuahuas named Bianco and Bambi.

Queen Anne hair colour was always natural and never whitened.

I am really sad for the King. This is a great loss for him and he must be devastated that his health does not allow him to take part on her last way to rest.

The King visited his wife every day at the hospital during the last week of her life, in spite of his own health and frailty. It just goes to show the devotion they had for one another, but even so it is indeed dreadfully sad that he cannot attend his wife's funeral.

Giving his age and illness, he may soon follow her...

Interesting. All this, and not even for a former head of state, "just" for a spouse of a former head of state. Impressive.

It would be kind of strange when the funeral of a Queen-Consort from a King whom reigned 60 years ago -and living abroad- would generate more interest than the funeral of the late Queen Fabiola of the Belgians in an empty and desolate Brussels. I would love it to see the Romanians to come out and bring homage. At the same time it would feel me with sadness again about what I saw from Brussels during Fabiola's funeral.

Queen Fabiola did want very simple Funerals , her Coffin on the Ground like Pope jean Paul II and her various Decorations were not seen. You were not at Brussels at that time . A terrible stormy cold December weather
I will see if the royal attendence will be the same and it will be in August

There has not been a royal funeral in Romania in almost eighty years. King Michael and, by extension, Queen Anne already enjoy an almost venerated status in some spheres of Romanian society. That combined with the fact that they could not enter the country for the first forty-odd years of their marriage, that they lived with such discretion, and that they practically never put a foot wrong, combined to make interest in them rather high.

Quintus: Hopefully, Queen Anne becomes model for all Romanians treasuring genuine people - Stiri pe surse - Cele mai noi stiri

I'd imagine that there will be quite a large royal gathering in Bucharest for the queens funeral.
