As this "renounciation" has no any effect on the succession, it was totally unneccessary in my humble opinion.
What is wrong with: HRH Princess Margarita of Romania, Princess of Hohenzollern?
I happen to like the sound of it!
Perhaps HM wanted to reiterate that he feels that the CP was his heir, and the eventual headship of Prince Nicolae as his desires? I also think, after reading his decree, that the split was because he assumes or thinks that P Karl might rise up out of the wood work, and stake claim of head of house from the CP who is for sure capable?
I see both sides, but I am not sure how this will go.
I am surprised that the king didn't take something to the court to have it recognized, as "prince" Paul Hohenzollern did.
If they can legitimize him, then they should surely recognize the kings wishes (for or against). Romania does not need to be a monarchy to state whether or not they agree with the king.
