What a pity we have no puctures of the visit to Huis ten Bosch Palace.
It is interesting that Margareta has Beatrix' habit to swap from morning dress to midday dress to evening dress. Also Radu did change from suit to uniform (visit to the Castle of Nassau in Breda) and back to suit.

It is. It seems to be like a "monarchy within a republic". Perhaps Romania cannot afford financially the real thing?!

That's very old school. In the old days a lady of their class could go through 5-6 outfit changes in a day.

Her Majesty Margareta and Prince Radu last night attended an event at the Romanian Embassy in Paris, dedicated to Queen Marie of Romania and her passion for the Romanian popular garments.

They pay double: for the presidential court as well for the former royal family. I think this is the best of both worlds: the democratic deficit is resolved with a democratically elected head of state. At the same time the republican state sees a bonus in having an official role for the former royal family.

The former royal family does not pursue a restoration of the monarchy. The agreement with the state means that they have a role, and receive the means to do so, within the democratic and republican structure. That is the reason for the deep dislike by "fundamentalists" who see this as a surrender to the republic and hate Margareta & Radu. This versus realists who say one can wait for ages to see a democratic memberstate of NATO and EU going back to a hereditary monarchy. Their calculation: that will never happen.

I think King Michael and Princess Margareta were wise to be realists. Despite exile, despite Ceaucescu's horror, they have their former royal properties back, they have an official status, they receive an annual budget. Wow... Not many former royal families have achieved that in our time.
