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:

His Majesty and Their Royal Highnesses spend together family moments in the days before the great feast of Easter and Holy Week.

King Mihai I is permanently surrounded by an eminent medical team members of His Majesty posted to Switzerland and two Orthodox nuns. His state of health is stable"

Apart from visits from Margareta and Radu, does King Michael have other family members with him? I find it strange and sad if he's all by himself (without family).

On June 26, 2017, CP Margareta and Prince Radu arrived in Switzerland to visit and spend few days with His Majesty King Mihai at his private home.

His Majesty's state of health is fragile but stable. King Mihai is quiet, has soulful appreciation and appreciates the care of his medical team. Along with the King, they are permanently employed by His Majesty's House, detached in Switzerland, and two Orthodox nuns.

But the question remains: why in Switzerland? I am sure the King will have the best care available in Savarsin Castle in his homeland Romania. It is strange that the King, also when in good health, never did opt for residence in Romania.

"Yesterday, Princess Elena makes a visit to Switzerland for a few days, where she stayed with her father, King Michael, at his private residence.
His Majesty continues to stay daily under close supervision of physicians, medical staff of various specialties, and in the presence of devoted members of the staff of His Majesty's House, stationed in Switzerland. Two Orthodox nuns continue to be in the private residence, detached by the benevolence of the hierarchs of the Romanian Orthodox Church.
The King is in a fragile but balanced state of health. His Majesty is in a good mood."
