The communists abolished the Monarchy in an illegal way. The prople has never decided on this issue.

The coffin is now brought to the Royal Palace in Bucharest for the main.part of the Funerals that would take place on Friday and Saturday.

I don´t see any difference to funeral rites in other monarchies - not like in a republic at all! The pomp and pageant here even seems to be more than in some reigning monarchies...!

No member of the British Royal Family will probably attend the Funeral of the late Queen of Romania:

Nici un membru al Familiei regale britanice NU vine la funeraliile Reginei Ana

It depends what is meant with "national funeral" (or: "state funeral"). When the State of Romania is -formally- the initiator and the organizator of the funeral, taking all costs for its account and also executes (parts of) the funeral, then it can be qualified as "State Funeral". I am not sure if the State of Romania organizes and pays for this funeral?

I remember the BBC stressing that the funerals for the late Queen Elizabeth and for the late Baroness Thatcher were no State Funerals but "a ceremonial funeral". The difference seems that Parliament has to consent to a motion that the State will organize a funeral. This was the case for the funeral of Sir Winston Churchill.

The funerals of the late Prince Claus, Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard (in the Netherlands) were -despite massive involvement of the state and grand ceremonial- not classified as "State Funeral" either: essentially it remained a private affair, so was stressed by the State Information Service.

National Funeral (State Funeral) or not: so far it looks very dignified. But most royal funerals are always quite well-executed, also the ones in non-reigning Houses.

It is not a national funeral and it was no official statement that the state pays for the funeral.

The President of Moldova is displaying very dignified and appropriate behaviour, a small bow from the neck to the Crown Princess and a very moving gesture of straightening the emblems on both the wreath from Romania, and his own from Moldova.

So far, the amount of respect shown towards the late Queen and the Royal Family, from two presidents and their respective governments, have been impressive and, I'm sure, very appreciated by the Royal Family and all who wish them well.

More importantly, Count Tibor Kalnoky is a close friend of the Prince of Wales in addition to being HRH's business partner in Romania.

Charming article about Count Tibor: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/p...nsylvania.html

The coffin arrived at the Royal Palace of Bucharest. Today there will be a Catholic moment of prayer in the Palace. The members of the King's Family that are present ( HRH Princess Margareta, HRH Princess Elena, HRH Princess Maria as well as Ms Elisabeta Biarneix, Mr Radu Duda and Mr Alexander Nixon McAteer) will attend this moment of prayer.

Princess Sophie was also there. The Princess and her daughter were already at the Royal Palace when the rest of the Royal Family as well as the Coffin of the Queen arrived. Mlle Biarneix bears a noticeable resemblance to her late grandmother when viewed from a certain angle.

Beautiful interview with Mrs Marilena Rotaru (Movement for Kingdom and Crown, National Convention for Constitutional Monarchy). Ske knew the Queen quite well and she has had in the last quarter of century different dialogues with the royal couple.

There is no Mr. Radu Duda, so we will just assume that you are derogatory referring to H.R.H Prince Radu of Romania.

Until now the daughter of Princess Sofia was the only grandchild of the Queen present.

It is a shame that the very gracious and dignified events happening in Romania these days in connection with the death of the Queen, is used by some as a reason to negatively angle arguments or attack a grieving Royal Family, instead of showing warmth and generosity to a family doing their best coping with loss in a public and sometimes difficult way. The King is unable to attend due to ill health, the family has like most royal families exiled had its share of difficulties. What could possibly possess some of those claiming to support the institution it represents to seize every chance available to speak ill of, point out flaws or be in general, ungenerous, is beyond me.

So far, the Queen has received a very warm return to the land which would so greatly had benefited from having her presence during her lifetime as Queen Consort and in these days of grief, that should be all that matters.

An old teacher from Curtea de Arges attended the Funerals of Queen Maria in 1938 and now she would like to see those of Queen Ana:

O pensionar? din Curtea de Arge?, martor? la funeraliile Reginei Maria, ar vrea s? îi aduc? un ultim omagiu ?i Reginei Ana

The Televisions did not mention there was a moment of prayer at Peles celebrated by HE Monsignor Mihai Fratila, Greek-Catholic Bishop of Bucharest.
