Atlantic Eye: Romania's princess at 60
15 April 2009

BUCHAREST -- The honor guard stood in full regalia as King Michael and Queen Anne strode the staircase to their waiting guests. The media in tow, the cameras flashing, Crown Princess Margarita and Prince Radu, who has just announced he is running for president of Romania, followed close behind. I had already entered the imposing hall. Last month, Margarita turned a youthful 60.

Seventy-five selected guests were hosted for a two-and-a-half day soiree. It included royals, nobles and personalities from public life, art and academia. It was a magnificent balance of esprit de corps and jubilation. It was classical music, gala opera and disco. It was, in short, a wonderful tribute to a very worthy lady from her loving husband, family and friends...

Royal-flavoured elections?
17 April 2009

Romania will hold its presidential election in November, and earlier this month Radu Duda became the first candidate to launch his campaign. The 49-year-old former actor married Princess Margareta, eldest daughter of former King Michael, in 1996, taking on the title of Prince of Romania.

In 2002, the government appointed him its special representative for integration, co-operation and durable development issues. He lobbied for Romania abroad until September 2008...

Prince Karl Friedrich of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen attacks King Michael´s decision

Prince Karl Friedrich of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (son and Heir of the Head of the House) says the title granted to Radu of Prince of Hohenzollern is a FARSE

The original article in Romanian is here:
Karl Friedrich de Hohenzollern: „Titlul de Hohenzollern al lui Radu Duda este o farsă“ - Cotidianul

And a pretty good translation into English is here:

A recent Gallup Romania poll found that 12% of participants said that they would vote for Prince Radu of Romania (aka Radu Duda) in the upcoming presidential elections.

Now what would happen if they did? Can he be a King/Prince/President and change their country to a monarchy?

Crown Princess Margarita and her husband visited Qatar earlier this month.

Among other things, they met with the Emir, Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani.

For information and pictures from the trip see the following links:

Well worth a read. This looks like it could be one of the most interesting stories about minor royalty of the year. If you are in London it may well be worth going along to the High Court in the Strand. Scheduled for this July I think.

Only possible obstacle to an enthralling conclusion to the case is whether or not Marco Houston has the money to defend the action. If he dosent could he spoof Radu and Carter Ruck by going bankrupt as the family have done so often in the past. Apparently the magazine itself is owned by his sister Tanja Houston anyway.

Royalty Magazine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia More info here

There have been so many minor trials of this matter already that the final legal costs bill may even end up at £2M or therabouts. Would anyone care to speculate whether or not Radu has that kind of cash if he were to lose. Marco Houston's lawyers have already started dropping hints that he is financially troubled so what will happen? If Radu wins will he even get paid?

Cool

It looks as if Archduke Georg attended also, but I may be mistaken.
