Personally I'd love to see King Michael I back to his rightful role in Romania. However he is up against a political elite that will do everything to stop this from happening. A populace that has no idea of how or what a true alternative to their current political system looks or behaves like. So It is but a feint hope, but not one that is lost for good.

Good for you.
There was a tiny chance for King Michael to restore monarchy in the ruined and poor country in 1989. Was he ready to inherit and rule such country?
Now it's not likely to become true. The expats seem to overestimate the popularity of RF among the Romanian people.

The present political elites within Romania cannot be said to be democratic. The sad truth is the communist mob that controlled the country prior to 1989 is stll in power; a little more media friendly and predisposed to the benefits of pleasing the western bankers, but very much so "the usual suspects". Most Romanians are aware of this, however they have to tread warily as old habits die hard among former communists who have reinvented themselves.

There is a sound legal reason why the monarchy should be restored: it is the constitution that was in vigour when the government was undemocratically taken over. King Michael would not rule the country, he would be a constitutional monarch, as indeed he was before. The present crown princess and her consort, along with the Princess Helen and her children, have worked very hard for the benefit of their fellow Romanians.

Unfortunately when Radu Duda announces his intention to run for the presidency of the republic many people thought the Royal Family does not hope in the Restoration of Monarchy.

I think so too. King Mihai is the only one who really mean something to me. I speak in my name because I don't lihe genaralizations. The others don't prove very much until now for me. When I will see they are doing something useful for the people (and I don't talk about parties, visits and ribbon cuttings) and they are grounding in Romanian soil and culture, I will think about their role in this country.
And do something with this Prince Radu. I see him only in controverses. And God's sake why is he wearing a military uniform? He was an actor (a respectable one, but actor not officer).

Radu Duda studied at the Military Accademy and now he is a coloner.He is very controversial and not only among royalists because he try to be not a consort to Princess Margareta but he behavea as if he were the Crown Prince which he luckily is not.

The rightful Head of State of the KINGDOM of Romania is HRH King Michael I. First, there is controversy whether His Majesty did indeed abdicate and second, the supposed abdication was under blackmail and duress. The Communists threaten to murder tens of thousands of civilians unless he did so. And when His Majesty went abroad to seek support for Romania against communism, the commies claimed he abdicated.

Romania is NOT a republic and never has been. All such claims are illegal according to international and Romanian law.
I would agree with you. I do have a question though, since you are from Romania; what do the people of Romania think of HRH King Michael? Thanks.

The majority of Romanians are not against HM King Mihai I but this does not mean they want a Restoration of Monarchy.There is no serious campaign for the Monarchy and Radu Duda speaks more about the "reformation of the institution of the president of the republic" creating confusion among the royalists.

Politicians speak in a coded language that is not always understood by us honest souls. I think Prince Radu is making a valid point, and perhaps he is also indicating obliquely that perhaps a constitutional monarchy is preferable to a manipulative presidency.

It was that group which more or less overthrew Ceausescu as they had grown fed up with his regime. I believe they had planned it for some time.

It's quite unlikely at the present stage. But the main argument for Romania may also be applied to, say, Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Georgia or Albania- that they were not deposed legally and had been usurped by undemocratic regimes. Romania has certainly had a difficult transition out of Communism and many things are being worked out, but it has stabilised somewhat more recently.

Which is the good and valid point of view of Radu Duda?The reformation of the institution of the president of the Republic?Why doesn't he speak about Restoration of Monarchy?

King Mihai I is too old so the royal cause is linked with Prince Nicolae.

The only big mistake of King Mihai I was when he accepted Radu Duda running to become a president of the Republic.In that moment many royalists felt the King gave up to his fight for the Monarchy.

It was ill advised for Prince Radu to enter party politics. The blunder is his alone and not H.M. The King's mistake.

Unfortunately Radu Duda is everywhere and writes about everything on his blog.HM King Mihai I is not so present now in the public life of the Country.

The Romanians will never accept a woaman as sovereign? Does this mean the Romanian people are sexist, or just the correspondent? This is the 21st century, and some people have got to be pragmatic and live for the future.

The Romanian won't easily accept a woman as Sovereign and they won't accept Princess Margareta because of the high impopularity of her "presidential" husband.

That is nonsense. Princess Margarita is perfectly acceptable to Romanians who like the idea of Monarchy (and of women). It has nothing to do with her husband having stood for president, most people understood his position very well. Prince Radu is certainly not unpopular and the couple are especially liked by the younger generation. I appreciate you as you always keep the site up to date by posting news about the RF of Romania, but you are woefully uninformed about the general image and popularity of Princess Margarita and Prince Radu in the country, now. This is probably due to the fact that you don't live in Romania so aren't up to date, but mainly I think it has to do with your own prejudice against Radu.
