Elisabeta Palace belongs to the State while Savarsin Castle will always remain as a private property of the Royal Family.

In Queen Marie's study, the chairs and desks are decorated with the symbols of the lily and the Celtic cross.
The German sculptor Martin Stohr made the Entrance of Honour of the Inner Courtyard.

Vlad Tepes (Prince Vlad III) was imprisoned in Corvinesti Castle during his youth for seven years.
The entrance hallway of Cotroceni Palace is a replica of Paris Opera in a French neoclassic style.
During the First World War, the German army occupied Cotroceni Palace.
The peace talks with the messengers of the Central Powers was held at the palace in 1918.
The Golden Room is absolutely beautiful and very impressive.

Is Savarsin the only estate belonging to the family?

Savarsin is directly supervised by the Royal Family but another property would be Peles .

When the crown princess becomes head of house, will these residences remain in their hands? Or, we're they only returned for the king during his lifetime? This might be a stupid question, but the links here are old and can't access some.

Peles and Pelisor are HM the King's properties even if the administration of both of them is still in the hands of the state.Foisor is still used as an official residence for the national authorities.

Yes, but when he passes... Do they get to stay with the family? I.E. The crown princess, princess Helen, prince Nicolae, etc.

Too bad the family can't get ahold of it. What a neat castle for them to have in their possession.

The Habsburgs do not seem to sell the Romanian Castle of Bran even if some newspapers announced it:

Of course they don't! Until it is sold it belongs to someone else. My comment was because it meant so much to Queen Marie.
