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?
While a former reigning monarch is still alive, it is customary for him/her to retain the title of King/Queen (as in the case of King Michael or King Constantine for example) , but that is not the case for a pretender who has never been a legal sovereign before. Therefore, I don't think it would be appropriate for CP Margareta to call herself "Queen". What do you guys think ?

Alexander of Serbia is Prince.
Margareta will remain Princess
Pavlos will remain Prince
Maria is Grand Duchess.
Kardam's Son will remain Prince.
Time of Monarchies is over in these Countries.

At 13.23.05, Romanian TV broke the news of the death of the King (minute 23:05 in the broadcast)


Pro TV marked the passing of His late Majesty, King Michael, for their news broadcast this evening in a very dignified and emotional way. Although the news of the demise of the King was expected, it is a very sad moment for the Royal Family and the Romanian nation, but in grief, there is such potential for reconciliation, and one can only hope the RF marks the passing of the King and enters the future era in a unified way.

We should all be thankful for the long life of the King, and may all who grieve find solace and gratitude in that we were granted his presence for all these years.

The King is dead, long live the Crown Princess and the entire Royal Family!

Very sad. King Michael is surely first among the saints in Heaven.

Sad news but expected. My condolences to the entire family hoping to be united.


People light candles in the memory of late King Mihai at the former Royal Palace, now the National Art Museum, in Bucharest.

Truly sad. And unfortunately it has occurred less than three weeks before Christmas, which is a most joyous occasion.

It's highly unlikely that Margareta will use the style of Queen, I think. She will be Crown Princess Margareta I in the same way that the Princes of Albania and Montenegro, who were were born after their respective countries had ditched the monarchy, use the title. Crown Prince Alexander of Serbia was the legal heir to an existing throne at birth, so his situation is slightly different.

I too hope that this moment will serve as a way for the family to move closer together and that BOTH Nicholas and the Princesses are able to set aside their disputes to honour the King in a fitting manner.

The Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece in his official twitter account has written this message: " King Michael of Romania has died at 96 An uncle of mine He was a peaceful and kind man who helped save thousands in His country prior to end of WWII May he Rest In Peace Αιωνία του η μνήμη"
https://twitter.com/pavlosgr1/status/938162944797564928

Mbruno, Indeed, she will have the title of Princess. The title of King or queen is acquired if the "throne" is restored and ascends to it. That is, if she becomes in Head of State being Romania a state with a monarchical political form. the titles of Queen, would be maintained for life, even when the status ceases to be active.

HM is truly at peace now and with his beloved Queen Anne. I too would hope that Nicholas at least be allowed to attend the funeral/memorials, but with this family I wouldn't be surprised if he were denied. If that happens, it's a petty and shameful act.

I'm afraid that the Duke of Edinburgh won't be able to attend the funeral of his childhood friend (Mihai and Anne met at his wedding with the then princess Elizabeth). Hopefully they have been able to stay in touch over these last years as well while getting older - even though it might have been quite some time ago since they last met.

I believe that the last time they might have seen each other was in 2012 at the luncheon QEII held for her fellow monarchs. King Michael was among the invited guests.

I am glad to think that King Michael is now at peace. He was an honorable man who suffered greatly.
For those who are interested, you can find on YouTube "War Stories, an interview with King Michael, by Colonel North". An incredible story; an incredible life.
