For the final day or events celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Royal House of Romania, HRH Margarita, Custodian of the Crown issued a special filmed message to the people of Romania from the Elisabeta Palace.  HRH spoke of the “hardest and most blessed years” of Romania’s history when referring to when Prince Carol I swore an oath of faith to the country and later put in place the constitution declaring the country “a single indivisible state”.  She also gave assurance that the Romanian Royal Family would “always be united with the Romanian people” in helping to build a “dignified, stable and prosperous” country.

Later on, a military ceremony took place at the King Carol I statue in Bucharest followed by a profoundly symbolic event: the hoisting of the Royal Flag at Peles Castle for the first time since 1947, complete with a traditional fly-past salute over the castle.
