A lot of Royals yes, but reigning King and Queens no.

Thank you for confirming this - I did go back and read the illness thread. I'm trying to gather correct information and news for another royal site that I sometimes post to as well.

Certainly this entire family is in my deepest prayers for healing and peace and my heart is breaking for King Michael that he is unable to attend Queen Anne's service and the surrounding events.

I hope there will be Danish royal representation at the Queen's funeral, she was the daughter of a Danish Princess after all (and granddaughter of a very well-respected Danish Prince).

I don't think it's very unusual. Many times, I think, the bonds between grandparents and grandchildren can be a whole lot stronger than those of parents and children. Doesn't mean that you don't also love your parents and siblings. I think Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark would say the same thing about Queen Ingrid.

I wasn't on here or Twitter yesterday, so only learning this sad news now. :(

As sad as this news is, it also was expected due to Her Majesty's ill health and increasing frailty these past few years and I pray she is now resting in Peace. She truly led an incredible and long life. I did not know Her Majesty served in the Free French Army during WWII and received The Croix de Guerre for her service. That is not awarded to just anybody for just anything and that alone deserves respect.

I just said this exact thing to my Mom. It would not shock me at all if His Majesty follows his Queen in a few months. Of course I'm not ill wishing the King, but we all have either seen for ourselves or heard stories about Couples who were so close and so a part of the other that when one passed away, their other half only lived for a short time afterwards. I have a feeling Their Majesties will be one of those Couples. :(

My Condolences to His Majesty, The Royal Family, their Extended Family and Friends.

I just got Gone With The Wind from iTunes the other day & watched it yesterday to make sure it downloaded properly. W/that in mind, I think Capt Butler's words on speaking of Melanie's passing, fit perfectly here....

A great Lady. A very great Lady
Yes. Her Majesty certainly was.

May she be at Peace. :( :(

I know GD Jean is likely in no shape, but I do hope some Lux royals go. Anne and Michael had their first real interaction through Jean at the Lux embassy. Their dads were brothers.

Her only living 1st cousins are on the Parma side. Her Danish cousins are all dead.

Luxembourg: I don't know about Henri but one of his brothers or kids?

Netherlands: Irene's former husband was Anne's cousin. I could see 1 or 2 of their kids attending.

Belgium: Lorenz and Astrid. Lorenz's dad was her cousin. They attended the couple's diamond anniversary celebrations.

She has a handful of nieces and nephews. We may see a few Greeks, Michael's family, but they seem close.

The Albanians, the Bulgarians, the Russians and the Savoy-Aostas are also likely to be there.

Condolences to Queen Anne's family and friends.

GD Henri and Prince Sebastien will be at the Rio Olympics although I don't know how long they're staying. Perhaps someone can return earlier. Otherwise, the GDF is quite large so I assume someone will go.

I guess Queen SofÝa of Spain will also attend the funeral. She seems to be close to the King of Romania. Maybe Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands as well. It would be nice if the Prince of Wales could attend.

I hope that Charles and perhaps Camilla can attend. The journey might be a bit much for Prince Philip. King Michael and Queen Anne spent decades in exile in Britain and there are close family links between King Michael especially and the BRF. It's just awful that the King can't attend the funeral of his beloved spouse.

The Ministry of Defense will be cooperating with the Royal House to provide the proper organization and security for the funeral of the Queen.

I have seen the funeral of Queen Fabiola from A to Z, as I worked from home, with the TV on. It was a sad and desolate affair, an unworthy adieu to a great Queen. It was cold and wet weather but while the procession was under way, people on the trottoirs even did not halt to look. Total desinterest. I still feel the disbelief when thinking back to it. Even the own Belgian news channels noted the empty streets.

The royal attendance was large in Brussels. That was not the point. I expect there will be a large royal representation too, from the Hohenzollerns, the Bourbon-Parmas, the OrlÚans, from Denmark, etc.

There were a lot of Queens, kings and even empress of Japan at the funeral of the queen Fabiola, the weather was bad , cold, rain and wind, the persons who appreciated the queen Fabiola were aged and it was not a weather for them , the weather would be better, there would be a lot of persons in the streets of Brussel.
I think that the funeral of the queen Ann will look like to the funeral of the former empress of Austria Zita and the funeral of Otto of Austria. Before to say that there would be this king or this queen, I think we must wait who will be present , it is not the funeral of a reigning king or queen and what is written on the paper could be different of the reality.

Thanks for your thread Melina , Duc is not fair for the late Queen Fabiola .

For AD Otto he had the same Traditional Imperial Funerals as his Mother Empress Zita.
In Romania they were only 2 Queens Official Funerals and no Tradition. The Organisation of Queen Anne's Funerals and later for the King were well prepared before.
