There are very few people 90+, royalty or commoner, who frequent official and social events, so this is not anything unusual. Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh, blessed with good health, are among the very few exceptions, although they also barely any longer go abroad, and King Michael and Queen Anne, both in declining health, are entitled to avoid the same and spend their days in their family home in Switzerland, where they are the most comfortable.
As Prince Radu said a few days ago, the Kings health is stable following his cancer diagnosis, but it should not be expected that it will improve much, due to his advanced age.

It is indeed sad that the King and Queen are unable to travel due to their health and advanced age. It would be a long journey between home in Switzerland and Romania and would be arduous for them both no matter how they travelled.

Let's hope the royal couple will be able to return to their official resedence at Elisabeta Palace. Bucharest has very good doctors that can help the King and the Queen.

The King and Queen are comfortable where they are now, and there is no need to wish for a change of location, when there is no improvement to their health to be gained from it, and the stress of travel and in all fairness, the whinging of some supporters in Romania, will not in any way benefit Their Majesties in their current conditions.
They have a comfortable home in Switzerland where they have all their needs met, and where family and friends can visit them in privacy. There's nothing more to ask for under the current circumstances.

Though this was not perhaps widely known, Queen Anne was a talented artist and had her paintings exhibited several times.

In her youth, she had studied at the Parsons School of Design in New York City.

These are some of her works, which she signed "AR" ["Anne de Roumanie"]:

As the King reaches the milestone age of 95 in only a few days time, I am impressed by the program laid out by the Royal House to commemorate the occasion. The work done by the Crown Princess, Prince Radu and Princess Maria is indeed solid, with a schedule tighter than many reigning families and most, if not all, former ones. Although it is sad that the health of His Majesty keeps him in Switzerland , it's good to see that both Princesses Sofia and Elena will be at his side, while the Royal Family is actively working in Romanian society, preserving the legacy of the King.

Twenty years ago today, King Michael returned to Romania for the first time since living in exile:
