I'd love to see the Monarchy restored in our country... it may be the last chance for our blessed country to re-gain its powerful position among all European countries, as truly worthy of our historical and cultural heritage... I am a profound admirer of HRH Princess Margareta, she should be our Queen!

Has the Royal Family made a visit to Moldova and is there any movement towards restoring the monarchy there? After all, it was part of Romania under King Michael before.

No chance. Well not in the forseeable future in any case. The question of reunification is still in a heated debate, so with the political leanings in Moldova at the moment I doubt whether it ever became an issue.

No member has made a visit to Moldova as of yet. Although Im not sure how well they would be greeted...

Really? Sorry, my mistake CSENYC! When did they visit? I should be more up to date with these events...

By the way, there are over 4000 votes (77% at the moment) for the restoration of the monarchy in Romania on the poll by Realitatea! It seems support is growing quite strongly!

Out of curiosity, what language does the Royal Family speak when they're together?

I have heard the King speak English, which is very good, and the Queen speak French, which is also very good; I don't speak any other languages and can't judge their fluency in them. If only the King was born and raised in Romania, does the rest of the family speak Romanian well? If not, is that a problem?

Most likely the whole Royal Family speak English; Queen Anne during World War II lived with her family in the USA and there she ended her studies and later worked; and in the 1950s King Michael and Queen Anne moved for some years in England, so it's likely that also their daughters learnt English while living there.

The Royal Family uses Romanian,English and French.The fact some members of the Royal Family are not perfectly fluent in Romanian upsets the people very much.

The tenth of May is the traditional national feast of the Kingdom.

This week is a good test for the Royal Family who proves to be much more popular than somebodu could have guessed.

Romania is theoretically a semipresidential republic now but almost everybody want a new Constitution.Some of the politicians (especially from PLD) want a presidential republic, others want a parlamentary republic (some politicians from PSD ) and others a constitutional Monarchy (some politicians of PNL).

In this moment in Romania they are much more royalists than 20 years ago but I think not enough yet to win a referendum.

You would not believe the exploding atmosphere that is happening here in Romania. This year, people have actually begun to pay attention to the royal family. The news is constantly speaking about and referring to them with their proper titles. People on the street have continuous discussions about the royal family and a possible return. In fact, the idea and debate about a possible restoration has effectively become main stream.

Many people have their reservations whether the royal family can change the socio-economic landscape in Romania, but almost everyone agrees that they can reinstate the national pride and traditions Romania once warmly held. The idea of a continuous head of state that brings respect to the country and people is becoming a very acceptable idea. People are sick and tired of all the different presidents that have failed to bring about "demnitate civica" (moral civic duty). The main purpose of the president is to uphold and improve Romania's image, which they have barely done.

Foreigners have always respected our King a lot more than our Presidents. Thus an increasing want for a constitutional monarchy.

Now all we need is some strong political will... I believe this time next year, we will be seeing a very different political atmosphere to that of today.

There is no political will for restoration in this moment.

In my Bucharest (every one with his view) people discuss about how to change the actual power who didn't performed but i didn' hear a single one who wants monarchie right now (well...maybe one...from the young generation). I was at the event in front of the Royal Palace to see what is the pulse of the population. But there were at most 100 monarchists (if I can call them so...I was there and I still debate if the monarchy is the good thing for this nation). And these people were there for King Mihai - the most respected figure from the Romanian Royal Family. I'm afraid to think what will be happen when he will die.

I travelled a lot in different parts of Romania and even some taxi drivers spoke about the restoration of Monarchy.
