I had hoped there would be a better royal turn out and perhaps Queen Sofia and her sister Princess Irene might attend.

It is rather curios the majority of the reigning European Monarchies won't be represented by their members at these Funerals. The absence of King Mihai himself from this sad event could be a reason for this attitude of the reigning Houses?

It's pity that someone from BRF (especially Charles) won't attend. In youth Charles and Anne were very close with Margarita. It's sad that in funeral will attend a few royals. I thought that Princess Benedikte, Princess Christina (from Sweden), King Harald and Queen Sonja, Princess Caroline, Queen Sofia will attend.
Who will represent Bulgaria ? Prince Kyril ? Or someone else ?

Even if Archduke Lorenz is the only official member attending from a reigning family there are still many members of non reining families like The Prince of Prussia and Grand Duchess Maria.

I did not see anybody from the Royal Family of Bulgaria on the List.

There are reasons of protocol for why Charles is sending a rep, which is, actually, a big deal, because Anne married Michael in exile, and he is not a reigning sovereign. Thus, the representation is limited because of Anne's real position.

The British Embassy sent out an announcement regarding the funeral .. Kalnoky is Charles' business partner and good friend

No, I┤m sure there weren┤t any differences if he attended.

Actually I didn┤t expect any of them to attend (perhaps with the exception of Queen Sophia)... Only the reigning houses seem to be, more or less, close. The only exception are the Greeks who, by Queen Anne-Marie, are related to almost everyone in europe.

We all know how the british royals avoid everything continental if they possibly can and I knew at once that nobody of them, or at least no one major royal, would attend this funeral!
The greek royal family, or King Paul and Queen Frederica, were very close to Michael and Anne, who got married in Athens and even had their wedding reception at the royal Palace. And one of the romanian couple┤s daughters was christened in the presence of the greek royal family in Athens. But King Constantine seems to be a bit frail these days...?

Exactly most of the people Anne and Michael were or are acquainted with are either deceased or are to frail to attend. In the U.K. the Queen and the DoE (but they probably wouldn't have gone since they are at Balmoral and protocol), in Lux. Jean, in Greece Constantine, and there are others like Prince Michel who is not in good health.

No member of the British, Danish or Spanish Royal Families seem to attend:

ABSEN╚šE DE MARC─‚: Casele Regale din Spania, Danemarca, Marea Britanie ╚™i Suedia NU vor fi prezente la funeraliile Reginei Ana/ Va fi prezent─ƒ ├«ns─ƒ Marea Duces─ƒ Maria a Rusiei

Around 1000 paid their homage to the Queen at the Royal Palace until noon on Thursday. It was however less people that some expected:

Your statement about the British royals is largely inaccurate. Fabiola's funeral was a rare occasion when the British sovereign sent the Ambassador to represent her There were no Brits at Queen Margrethe's birthday last year because she invited ONLY fellow sovereigns - and Queen Elizabeth II sent her regrets -- she was nearly 90. Philip was going to the 70th bday, but the volcano changed plans. However, there have been reps at the royal weddings. However, invitations to royal events are not always sent to every royal house. It is not required. Anne was never the queen consort of a sovereign nation. Charles is very close to Margarita, but British protocol is different. The British embassy sent out an announcement saying that the queen would be represented as would Charles ... Charles does not usually have a separate rep at major royal events. However, he owns property and is close to Margarita. She knows he would not have been able to come. In terms of protocol, Anne is not entitled to same representation if she were the consort of a reigning monarch. Michael might get more, because he was a reigning monarch. I am surprised that Crown Prince Alexander is not going ... that is the one that surprises me.

No news of their attendance yet. Until now nobody confirmed from the Serbian and Greek Royal Houses either.

Indeed, the absence of Crown Prince Alexander is more conspicuous than any other attendee or lack thereof. Well, him and Queen Sofia. I did think she might attend in the end.
