And what do they do for a living, where do they live, any kids? etc. Anyone follow this couple/the Romanian Royals?
Aren't they exiled? Are they back in Romania now though? It is such a beautiful country.
Judging by his name, the groom was/is a Romanian national.

Radu Duda, Prince of Hohenzollern-Veringen, is a Romanian national. He and Princess Margarita are involved in the Princess Margarita of Romania Foundation which raises money for various Romanian institutions. Click on photo gallery to see the variety of activities she undertakes.

King Michael returned to Romania in 1997 when his citizenship was restored. He has been given use of Savarsin Castle, where I understand he, Queen Anne, Margarita and her husband spend time as well as at their home in Switzerland. The Romanian Government is negotiating compensation and the return of other former private properties of the Royal Family that were confiscated by the Communist regime.

Margarita and Radu have no children (she was 47 when she married).

A potted biography of Radu Duda, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Born in Romania 1960. He graduated from the University of Drama and Film in Bucharest in 1984, from the National College of Defence in Romania in 2002, and the George C Marshall College in Garmisch, Germany in 2003; John F Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, 2004, Program for Senior Executives in National and International Security.

He is a Romanian Army Colonel (2005) and a PhD candidate in Military Science, National Defence University in Bucharest. From 2002 Special Representative of the Romanian Government for Integration, Co-operation and Sustainable Development; Patron of the British-Romanian Chamber of Commerce; Member of the Board of Directors of "House of NATO" Association in Bucharest; Honorary Member of the Senate of "Aurel Vlaicu" University in Arad, and of the University in Oradea (Romania).

He was the Artistic Director of the first project in Romania of art therapy for abandoned children in orphanages. The project, founded in 1993, was developed in eight cities over six years.

Biography

HRH CROWN PRINCESS MARGARITA OF ROMANIA


Crown Princess Margarita is the eldest daughter of King Michael and Queen
Anne of Romania. She is a graduate of Sociology, Political Science and Public International Law from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.

Following her graduation Princess Margarita worked in a number of British Universities, specialising in medical sociology and public health policy. Projects included designing improvements in the aftercare of cancer patients, participating in a 5 year international research program on alcohol use and abuse on behalf of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and developing policy recommendations and preventative pilot projects.


In 1983, she joined the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome, as a member the World Food Day project team, working on the public awareness campaign concerning agricultural programs, nutrition and poverty alleviation. Three years later, she joined the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

In these different posts the Princess travelled widely, particularly to countries in Africa, as part of her responsibilities.

In the autumn of 1989 Princess Margarita left the UN system to devote herself entirely to Romania and working with her father.

In the weeks immediately after the events of December 1989, Princess Margarita made her first visit to Romania. Shortly thereafter, King Michael and his daughter set up the Princess Margarita of Romania Foundation, created specifically to respond to the needs expressed by Romanians throughout the country. The Princess is the President of the Foundation, which is established in six countries.

The Foundation's mission is to act as a catalyst for the enhancement of human potential, the restoration of dignity and the promotion of Romanian talent and cultural values. To that end the Foundation implements projects in the areas of health, social welfare, education, civil society and culture which contribute to the spiritual and social renewal of the country. Beneficiaries include underprivileged children, talented youth, the elderly poor and non-governmental organisations active in child protection.

The Crown Princess frequently represents her father on different public and official events as well as accompanying him on many of his trips. Throughout the 90's the Princess coordinated and accompanied the King on a series of visits he made within Europe, the USA and Canada to Romanian communities, in meetings with leading politicians and advisors and speeches to a number of specialized international institutes and fora. Princess Margarita has regularly accompanied the King on official tours he undertook throughout Europe in 1997 and 2002 for the integration of Romania in NATO.

She lectures, makes speeches and publishes articles on Romania in the written press as well as in books and other publications.

It should also be noted that Margarita is not Crown Princess of Romania, and I don't (but yet do) understand why Radu's website refers to her as such.

Margarita has for many years been referred to as "Crown Princess", although technically this is incorrect. I guess it's one way of showing she is the eldest child of the King.

Newcomer in Romanian royal family allegedly belonged to Communist secret police
A journalist close to the Romanian Royal House, Nicoleta Franck, accused a newcomer in the Royal Family of “infiltrating” it in order to undermine the stand of ex-King Mihai, Bucharest-based newspaper Adevarul reports.
Franck alleges in a Swiss magazine that Prince Radu, formerly known as Radu Duda, who has married Princess Margareta, was a representative of former Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu’s secret police, the Securitate, who “infiltrated” the Royal House in an affair to which Romania’s first post-communist President Ion Iliescu might be no stranger.

The Royal House And Social Responsibility
11 Dec 2006
by Madalina Iacob
The Special Envoy of the Romanian Government for Integration, Cooperation, and Sustainable Development had over 700 appointments as a host or guest in 2005. His Highness Prince Radu of Hohenzollern-Veringen was appointed to this position in 2002, and although this appointment seems to come to an end judging by its title, his mission as an emissary of the Romanian image will continue after integration as well...

King in Parliament
22 Dec 2006
by Prince Radu of Hohenzollern-Veringen
On Wednesday 20 it was the second time in only two days that I attended the solemn session of the Romanian Parliament. To Princess Margareta and to me it was a historical moment. We were born 5 decades ago. We had the opportunity to reach several Parliaments of the world, to meet lots of politicians and statesmen deciding the international system's fate, to have thousands of assignments in support of Romania's fundamental interests...

Princess Margarita

Here is a link to an interesting interview with King Michael's eldest daughter, HRH Princess Margarita.

From the Telegraph.co.uk, 5 June 2007.
Who knew that while at Edinburgh University she had a five-year relationship with the current British Prime Minister-in-Waiting, Gordon Brown?
The relationship appears to have come unstuck when he became uncomfortable with her royal position, and she with his obsession for politics.

A car would deliver formal invitiations to her flat whenever the Royals were in Edinburgh. They were, she says, "always very, very nice to us."

Thankyou Von Schlesian! I did wonder. Who would have thought this dashing Crown Princess could have been the current PM's wife here in the UK?
