He was influenced in different important decisions by other persons (Zizi Lambrino and Elena Lupescu especially) during his life and maybe that's why he did a lot of mistakes towards the Royal family and the country.

The republicans fear really a restoration of Monarchy in the country and this is proved by the antiroyalist newspaper "Evenimentul zilei" with an article"Operation "Restore the Monarchy":

I'd think that October 25 would have helped the monarchist cause.

When people see King Michael speaking before Parliament, they see a king promoting democracy, and perhaps get used to a king being a public figure, involved in government.

And when the president boycotts his speech, it only helps the King, because it legitimizes him as a figure with power; if the president is opposed to the King, the King must be important.

I'm really happy for King Michael.

Yes, Romania is a semi-presidential republic, so we have both a President and a Prime Minister. At the moment, both of them are from the same party (PDL) and many say the PM is just a puppet of President Traian Băsescu so it wasn't a surprise when the PM choose to boycott the King's speech, just as his mentor. Saddly, most of the cabinet ministries didn't attended the celebration, only the Minister of Justice (former member of PSD) was present.

Two other members of the government were present, both from UDMR (Democratic Union of the Hungarians of Romania).

There is a huge simpathy for HM King in the country but the group of followers of the republican leader try to influence the public opinion with the help of some newspaters as "Evenimentul zilei".

HRH Prince Nicolae is not so known by many Romanians but he is more and more present in the events of the royal family.

The republican leader basescu recognizes the strenght of the royalist movement in nowadays Romania:

Will Margareta's and Nicolae control of the Romanian language be a barrier to restoration?

The Romanians would never accept somebody who does not speak perfectly Romanian!

I'm not so sure. Times are very different but the Greeks accepted a Dane who couldn't speak a word of Greek when he arrived! And Margarita at least speaks the language and can communicate in it. I wouldn't think it'd be too much of an issue. On the list of pro's and con's, I'd say it'd be pretty far down. If the Romanians decide they want a monarchy again, I think Margarita's linguistic skills would be a side issue.

When you speak about Monarchy the main remark is that the members of the Royal family (except HM King, partially Hm Queen , Crown Princess margareta and Prince Radu) do not speak the language.So it is one of the main issues!


A new poll in Bucharest shows that more than 50 % trust HM King Mihai I and the Royal family, 28 % are clearly in favour of the restoration of Monarchy and 41 % believe the proclamation of the republic in 1947 was an in illegal act:

28% is pretty high! Sounds like the president's attacks on King Michael are only helping the King.

Out of curiosity, why would the president attack the king anyway? What purpose does it serve?

From the polls, I do not understand how ANYONE could have ANY admiration for Nicolae Ceaucescu- what a horrible monster. I couldn't tolerate Ion Antonescu either, although Ceaucescu certainly has a worse reputation these days.

There's no excuse for Prince Nicolae not to be learning Romanian. Especially if he's serious. I meant it wasn't a serious issue that Margarita doesnt speak Romanian very well.
