Does anyone know anything of the orders which are on the caskets? I noticed that HM King Peter has that of Saint Prince Lazarus placed on his coffin. It looked like HM Queen Maria had a Blue and White order, which I have seen on HRH CP Katherine a few times. I believe that this is a family order? Both HM Queen Alexandra and HRH Prince Andrej had what looked to be orders in the form of badges or stars rather than sashes. So, I am not sure what they are or what they may have been as I am not sure what was awarded, and when. Does anyone have any insight?

Their Majesties King Simeon and Queen Margarita of the Bulgarians
Their Majesties King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie of the Hellenes
Their Royal Highnesses Crown Princess Margarita and Prince Radu of Romania
Their Imperial and Royal Highnesses Archduke Sandor and Archduchess Herta of Austria
His Highness Sheikh Abdulla Bin Hamad Al Khalifa of Bahrain
Their Royal Highnesses The Margraf and Margrafin of Baden
Their Serene Highnesses Prince Philipp Erasmus and Princess Isabelle of Liechtenstein
His Royal Highness Prince Mabandla Dlamini of Swaziland
Princess Ira Von Fürstenberg
His Serene Highness Prince Pierre D' Arenberg.

I was surprised to see that there was no one there from Britain -actually I was really, really surprised at that. HM the Queen is CP Aleksander II god mother and both families seem pretty close. So I am surprised that a representative from the family of any kind was not present.

I was sad to see that Sweden, Denmark, Norway and the other more prominent houses did not send anyone. I find it hard to believe the HRH just refused to send an invite. These were reigning monarchs!

I was surprised that the US didn't send an ambassador or a higher representative as well. Just my thoughts.

It was a beautiful service for a good king and queen as well as a queen beloved by her people and her sons.

I can understand why the British, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian royal families did not attend and why there were no American representative.

This was a reburial of several people who died at different times several years ago.

Would anyone expect people to attend the reburial of Richard III? (I know centuries have past since he died.)

Who attended the reburial of the Romanov family?

Peter II selected his final resting place only to have his son move him. It might stir some unneeded controversy to any American representative who might have attended.

The American Ambassador seems a high enough official for such an event.

Now that I think about it -perhaps the order placed on/near HM Queen Alexandra's coffin is one of the Greek royal orders? Is there a balkin order expert around on these boards somewhere?

Yes, I understand as much. However, I figured that since this was a state funeral (re burial or not) some of the more prominent royals would come and support the family.

Peter II, his wife, mother and brother did not choose to be buried outside of their homeland.

I feel like Richard the third is a little different as be is centuries ago, now if it was George VI or Queen Mary, the Queen Mother or the last king of Sweden I wonder if it might be a little different.

That is all I was saying -nothing negative was meant in my comment.

The British and Serbian families have always seemed close. And so I too was disapointed that no represtative was there. Prince Michael would have been a good choice.
