Sad news, though in view of King Michael's long illness not unexpected. What an extraordinary life he led, most of it in exile, yet still a King of his homeland. Reunited now with his beloved wife. RIP.

May His Majesty rest in peace and his grieving family draw inspiration and comfort from his example. Special thoughts with all Romanians and Moldovans who mourn.

This is one Monarch to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude for his courageous actions in leading the coup that toppled Antonescu during WWII and led to the Nazis not only losing an ally but gaining an enemy. Those actions shortened the war, and thus spared the lives of many soldiers, civilians, and prisoners the world over. We should also remember his resistance to the Soviet subjugation of Romania, long after the western powers had abandoned him and his country to its fate.

A good man, who was also a great man.

Nicholas has made many posts of the death of his grandfather to his Facebook
One of these
"Today, Romania lost its King and one of Europe's greatest leaders of the twentieth century, symbol of debt to its country.
My grandfather was the ruler who really loved his country and his people!
Today, I lost my best friend, my grandfather, but I consider myself a lucky man because I had the privilege of being raised and formed by him, with his duty to the country and the promise that I will always try to make him proud of me.
Grandpa, I will miss you and I will not forget that you have taught me about real, immortal values over time.
Rest in peace!"

Nicholas writes at his Facebook also, that he will attend at the funeral of his grandfather.
"The grandson of the King will attend the funeral of His Majesty."

Oh God, I hope his aunts and mother are okay with that.... say what you want about the divide in the House of Romania, I hope Nicholas doesn’t cause a scene at his grandfather’s funeral.

"According to the Legal Norms of the Royal House of Romania, signed by His Majesty King Michael I of Romania, succession to the title of King or Queen will come to Crown Princess Margareta, as King Michael decided in 2007"

This was included below Her Royal Highness' translation of her speech on the Romanian news channels. Does the Crown Princess now intend to use that title?

The right thing to do is to let him come and say his goodbyes. That doesn't mean they have to speak to each other.

Indeed I hope Nicholas will be invited to the funeral and some form of reconciliation can be achieved. I don't imagine he will cause a scene at such a solemn and sad time for the family.

It is often said a funeral can bring out the worst I people, but in this instance it should bring out the best.
