A statue of King Mihai I will be made in Calarasi ( in the Central Park of the ciry) and will be over for the tenth of May.At the inauguration will be present probably the King himself:

Article in the "Washington Post":

He’s seen it all before: Romania’s ex-king Michael I at his 3rd UK royal wedding since 1947 - The Washington Post

The Queen won't probably participate at the events of next week because of her fragile health.

These days the attention of romanian media is quite focused on the events regarding King Mihai I and the Royal Family.Quite a lot of journalists don't hide their royalists feeling and we can see the difference with 1990 when no television would have reffered to the Sovereign as "HM the King" but rather "the ex king".

Romanian President calls King Mihai 'traitor' and 'slave of Russians'

A vicious attack on King Mihai was made publicly by President Basescu of Romania:

Basescu: "abdication of King Michael I, a great act of betrayal. He was servant to the Russians."

Basescu, tough attack on King Mihai: Slave to the Russians! Abdication was an act of treason
“We all still believe that the King’s abdication was a great patriotic act. No, it was an act of treason against the national act of Romania, the king’s abdication. This is what I think,” Basescu said.
[...] “For instance, for us and history, Antonescu remains responsible for the Holocaust against the Jews and Gypsies, the fact that they were taken to Transnistria. Nobody says that we had a head of state back then. (Marshal Antonescu) was only a prime minister then. We give some people their wealth back and others we deem war criminals – the head of state and the prime minister. Just because one of them was a slave to the Russians and abdicated and left the country, we forgive him?” Basescu added.
He also spoke of his relationship with Prince Paul, whose son he recently baptized, saying that this shows he has nothing against the Royal House.
Basescu’s statements were criticized by historians and journalists. “Making such statements about a former head of state is an antinational act. It’s unacceptable,” journalist Cristian Tudor Popescu told Realitatea TV.

Thank you for updating,Kasumi.I don't understand the Romanian but then I discovered that this news is going around the world ,he shouldn't have attacked the King Mihai(at his old age) in that tremendous and ridiculous way.But he dared...After all,by google translating I've understood that Romania actually is getting a territorial reform with implication of Hungarian or other nation.If someone knows more,please explain to me.It's willl be genuine to hear the opinion of native Romanian people as well.

Royal house will not comment on president basescu’s statements
The Royal House did not comment the statements made by president Traian Basescu on Wednesday about King Michael’s abdication. “His Majesty King Michael I did not authorize anyone to comment on this subject,” Radu Ghina, councilor of the Royal House declared on Thursday.President Traian Basescu said on Wednesday at a TV show that “the king’s abdication was an act of treason of Romania’s national interest”and calling him "a Russian lackey ". President Basescu also said as Michael was head of state during the pro-fascist regime of dictator Marshal Ion Antonescu — prime minister from 1940 to 1944, during World War II — he should also be considered responsible for the death of some 280,000 Jews and 11,000 Gypsies.

Due West: Long live the King! | Columnists | RIA Novosti
King Mihai was a real participant in and even an architect of historic events. He lunched with Hitler and drank tea with Mussolini, received the Soviet Order of Victory from Stalin and almost single-handedly stood up to him just a few months later. This year King Mihai will celebrate his 90th birthday.
Having met quite a few representatives of modern royalty, I have never met anyone even remotely similar in attitude and style. King Mihai looks and sounds regal, yet he is very unpretentious and straightforward. I suspect it is because, as opposed to most modern royals, he has wielded real power and had to take life and death decisions. “Faith in God provides essential meaning to my life,” the king told me once. “It helped me to overcome doubts in crisis moments, of which there were quite a few.”

King Michael really is the best of the best, as his quotations in the article in the prior post show (versus the filth that the President of Romania is saying about him).

Even the minister of foreign affairs, Baconschi, asked to everybody to respect the institution of Monarchy.Do not forget he is a close friend of Traian Basescu.

One sidenote:

I see from these threads that the Royal Family:

(1) Lives in a palace
(2) Must have plenty of money, with all of these fancy parties, trips, etc.
(3) Constantly welcomes other royalty for visits- from Prince Charles to the Prince of Liechtenstein
(4) Takes part in all sorts of activities around Romania

Why WOULD King Michael want the monarchy restored? He and his family have leisurely, lavish lives far better than mine, and there's no downside- from what I can tell, they don't have to work (no government meetings, no official job requirements, etc.).

Isn't being a non-reigning Royal Family the best situation of all?

HM King Mihai I receives a pension from the state but the Royal Family must pay for all the needs of Elisabeta Palace.

Hm King Mihai I sent a Message of solidarity and compassion to HM King Harald after the tragic events in Oslo:

Sidenote: Where was King Michael educated? I find it strange that there's no mention that he went to college--but back in the 1930s, royalty was perhaps just educated by private tutors?

Also, how did he learn such good English-while living in the UK years ago, or before?
