It will be interesting to see what happens if the lawyer for Elisabeta Palace actually takes the journalist to court.
Other royalists probably believe more or less the same things like Mrs Iordache even if not all of them would publicly express their doubts.

How can certain sites announce the death of the King? To say that the Sovereign died but the tomb was not ready so there was no announcement yet... it's really strange. Nobody would believe such a story!

Regele Mihai ar fi murit de câteva luni iar trupul îi stă ascuns la Zurich!!! | Cunoaste lumea

impossible to believe.

A Romanian Tv does not agree the photos of the royal couple published these days are from 2016:

De ce Casa Regală publică niște fotografii vechi cu Regele și Regina, realizate în octombrie 2015, ca fiind din 14 ianuarie 2016?! | Nasul.tv

Any news regarding the Queen's health?

He is de facto a former Monarh and the iure the Sovereign of Romania.

The King is in a clinic in Lausanne and his eldest daughter visit him. The other daughters will come tonee him these days too.

This story is very strange and difficult to believe.

I can only understand that they believe that the pictures date back to October 2015 (and not to January 2016 as declared). But why do they think so?

They said their specialists had this opinion. There is a lot of confusion recently regarding some news about the King's Family.

But they don't explain the reason for this opinion, do they?

They said they scaned the photos. I am not an expert so I don't know how they can do that.
It is obvious there is a campaign of a part of the Romanian press against the King's Family (at least against a part of it).

I understood Romania to be a republic and Mihail announced his abdication in the 1940,s, so he is souvereign of what exactly?

He is a former head of state, the present head of the Royal House of Romania. As such he has a semi-public status. The Government provides the former King with a residence (Elisabeta Palace, see picture), an office and other support.

The residence was given to the Sovereign by the state as his official residence. Practicly he lived very little in that Palace in the last years.

King Michael is one of the last monarchs/ex-monarchs to reign during WWII. The only other one I can think of is the former King Simeon of Bulgaria.

He has had a very tragic life and he has suffered since he was a child because of family misunderstandings.

He is certainly a symbol of dignity and he has always been a devout Christian.

Which daughters are near the King these days?

If the King is so seriously ill why his eldest daughter does not stay near him?

It's not like the Communists left anyone with much choice; during the post-WWI era the Reds were butchering one royal family after another.

Michael never announced his abdication .. he was forced at gunpoint to abdicate ... it was forced. It was not his choice. Once out of Romania, he recanted his comments.

The Bolsheviks and their successors were responsible for the deaths of members of the Imperial family, princely families, as well as ordinary people. The only other member of a reigning royal family killed by the Communists was Prince Kyril of Bulgaria, one of the regents for the minor King Simeon. All the members of the Yugoslav royal family got when Germany invaded, although the late King Alexander I's elder son George remained in Belgrade. All of the Romanians were forced out, put on trains. KIng Zog and his wife and infant son escaped when the Italians came in.

What happened in 1947 was not a valid abdication because he was forced to do it.
