The descendants of the King won't certainly become more popular if there are no taxes paid.

The local mayor of the town where the castle is seems to support the idea of the King not paying tax on the property - is it a decision that can be made by the local tax authorities or is it a governmental decision I wonder?

The mayor also stated that Crown Princess Margareta will be required to pay the tax (seeing as she isn't a war veteran!) and so there should be concern over the popularity of King Michael's descendants.

Now everybody speaks about properties and taxes not about restoration of Monarchy. What a pity.

Nothing that I am aware of - we may get some news and pictures when Princess Margareta and Prince Radu visit the King and Queen later this week.

Prince Radu made some comments about the health of the King a few days ago, where he said that although the King's condition was stable, his health was not improving. For a man of his advanced age affected by a serious medical condition, it's not a surprise at this stage.
I don't think we should expect much in the area of photos, the King is ill and the Queen is frail, and it doesn't seem the right thing to do, to photograph either one at this stage.

Prince Charles has always respected the Romanian royal couple very much.

I think all royals do. Here Queen Beatrix with King Michael at her palace in The Hague (also Queen Anne was there): http://66.media.tumblr.com/a1d3027e3...jnxo1_1280.jpg

That's no doubt that all European Royal Families respect the Romanian King and recognize he suffered a lot the reality of exile only because he loved deeply his country.

We seem to be sliding a little from the point of the thread, 'current events', with the coronation having taken place in 1952

Yes of course , but the King and the Queen of Romania were guests at all the Royal Events since more than 65 years.

Considering it was 63 years ago, and many of those in attendance were older than the queen who is 90 herself, not all surprising not many are still around. But Michael and Albert are not the only living royals who attended.

-Japan: Emperor Akihito attended as Crown Prince
-Luxeumbourg- GD Jean went as hereditary grand duke

then we have some of Philip's sisters' kids
-Max, Margrave of Baden (Theodora's son)
-Princess Dorothea of Hesse (Sophia's) her late sister also attended

Now their frail health do not allow them to do so anymore.
