Crown Princess Margareta Granted Swiss Nationality
In a ceremony at the Palais de Beaulieu in Lausanne, Switzerland on Wednesday, Crown Princess Margareta of Romania became a naturalised Swiss citizen.
The Princess took her citizenship oath alongside over 450 others during the ceremony, presided over by the Chancellor of the State of Vaud. She was joined by her husband, Prince Radu.
“Our royal family and the canton of Vaud share a common history. I was born in Lausanne, I married in Lausanne. Switzerland was my only home when my family was in exile. Today I thank her for all she has done for us,” Crown Princess Margareta said after the ceremony. She confirmed she retains her Romanian nationality, saying that while “Switzerland is my adopted country, I have Romanian blood.”
Margareta and Radu arrived in Switzerland earlier this week, to spend time with King Mihai I.Filed under Romania
