Princess Sofia did not join her sisters for the Orthodox Divine Liturgy at Savarsin parish church on the 26th of December.

These photographs are hauntingly beautiful and were taken in a private moment when Princess Sofia took a walk around the gardens/estate of Săvârșin. On her FaceBook page she writes:

Quote:
On my walk 2 days ago, I shot these images from the heart, for my father, for his love of Săvârșin, and for my love for him. A quiet walk in remembrance, my way of saying thank you to him, of saying I love him, of saying I won't forget him, a way of sharing photography that he always enjoyed so much, my profession that will always keep me close to him no matter what.

Any known reason for not attending the memorial for her father in the Orthodox church of Savarsin yesterday?

I can't imagine, Cory - it could be any number of reasons, she caught a cold or wanted to spend time on her own?

Because she had other plans? Like staying at home and read a good book?

I believe it was the Christmas service they attended, which takes place on the first or second day of Christmas rather than it being specifically a memorial service for the late King. If the days are correct, it appears Princess Sofia preferred to stay at the Palace for her remembrance walk privately to think about her late father.

It was a Divine Liturgy with a Special Memorial for the late King and an Orthodox Archbishop came from Arad to preside it:

A man claims he is a descendant of the Family but his story seems at least quite controversial and probably impossible to be true. So sad to see this new invention :

I am horrified that someone should make such a claim about the King and Princess Sophie.

Since she has a low profile within the Royal Family, I can only assume she is an easy target for such a thing.

Romanian Princesses don't carry their husbands titles, they don't follow the convention of British titles

Irina probably not, what about Elena and Maria?

I assume CP acted as a representative of her father the official Grandmaster of the Order - or is this considered part of all the duties taken on as Custodian of the Crown?

Apparently, there is a limit of 25 holders at any given time - and prince Lorenz of Belgium and princess Muna al-Hoessein (mother of king Abdullah) are two of the current holders.


All sisters are Knights Grand Cross of the Royal Order of the Crown, with the exception of Irina, after the death of Queen Anne, Crown Princess Margareta became the Grand Master as the head of the house is Sovereign of the Royal Orders

Foreign Knights Grand Cross, include: Prince Lorenz, The Archduke of Austria-Este; Lech Walesa, Former President of Poland and Vytautas Landsbergis, Former President of Lithuania

Prince Muna al-Hussein is the only Dame Grand Cross of the Order

According to the last royal Constitutions they do not have dynastic rights either and to bear their husbands surname us normal and legal.

There were no obstacles to Irina attending her mother's funeral. She chose not to attend the funeral. She told me at the time that she would attend her father's funeral.

Irina made the decision to not attend her mother's decision. It was a personal decision.

The last constitution is void and as King Michael was the head of his own house, he was within his own rights to create the house laws which there is no dispute to, not even from the Romanian government who recognise Crown Princess Margareta as first in line to the throne and Head of the House of Romania

The claim is that the guy who made the claim, is the son of the incestuous relationship between King Michael and his fourth daughter, thinking about it disgusts me
