Interesting. I always thought that it was the Government's decision.

That's promising news. Hopefully we'll know what the results of the marches were soon. If the monarchy is restored, I wonder who will assume the throne - King Michael or Prince Nicolae? I've read upthread that Nicolae is not as well known as King Michael in Romania, which I too am surprised about. You would've thought that a newly created Prince would have more recognition.

It would be interesting to know what the Romanian Royals think of all this. I know that if I were King Michael, I would want to assume the throne once more. Or maybe he doesn't want to reign again.

There is no doubt the Royal Family is prepared to reign again.

The newspaper"Gandul" invited the Romanians at a poll in favour of Monarchy or Republic:

SONDAJ Gândul. Monarhie constituţională sau republică? - Gandul

There is a question that everybody really avoid to put: do Princess Margareta and her husband really support the restoration of Monarchy or they prefer the role they have now in the republican society?

Hmmm... Never thought about that. With HM in favor of a restoration (how wonderful it would be for the king to get the send off he deserves when the time comes), I would like to think the Crown couple would also be in favor of one. It's clear that Prince Nicolae is as he is quoted as saying, that he would not turn down the offer of being king if the people wished it.

At the Crown Princesses age, it might possibly be a thought in the back of her head to simply keep her current role rather than wording about becoming Queen in the event of a restoration.

But as I said, if the King is in favor and would like to see it (restoration), then I find it hard to think that the Crown Princess would feel differently.

Then again, those of is here at the forums, can't speak for her or read her mind.

It is hard to know the real feelings of Princess Margareta or of her husband regarding the Restoration of Monarchy.

On the 26th of April the royalists from the southern part of the country will participate at Galati (Hall "Nicolae Balceascu " of the Business Center "Dunarea") at a Conference with the title "The Constitutional Monarchy. A legitimate project for Romania"". The event is organized by ANRM and will be followed by a meeting of the leadership of the royalists'Association.

At Galati the debate about Monarchy organized by ANRM was a real success:

The fact that the prime minister was present to the official dinner at Elisabeta Palace last evening is an important sign the Romanian political class starts to respect in a proper way the Royal Family.

The prime minster said last evening he would always respect the Royal House as one of the most important institutions of modern Romania:

Ponta: Voi respecta Casa Regală, una dintre instituțiile fundamentale ale statului român modern – AGERPRES

The leader of the main opposition party says Monarchy could be restored in the future if the people wants it because the republic does not really have legitimacy:

I feel a restoration should place King Michael on the throne with Princess Margareta assuming the same role that the Prince of Wales does in relation to Queen Elizabeth, taking on many of the duties of the King. With King Michael on the throne I feel it would a symbolic gesture to heal some of the wounds of the communist era and provide a sense of continuity.

I would like to see a religious crowning by the Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church with participation of the other large Christian denominations. I feel this would provide a further sense of legitimacy and assist the Romanian people in further getting away from the cultural damage of the communist era.

The leader of the Romanian Orthodox Church is not too close to the Royal Family and the members of the royal Family should be allowed anyhow to profess the religion they want.

It doesn't matter if they are close, it is a matter of legitimacy and a matter of solemnity. Most of the world's monarchs are required to practice the faith of the majority of the nations people.

HM the King and the 5 Princesses are Orthodox but HM the Queen is obviously Catholic. To impose a certain religion to somebody is against the essential human rights.

in the Netherlands the Queen is Catholic and the King Protestant. In the UK the laws forbiding a member of the Royal Family to marry a Catholic will be changed.
