May he rest in peace, and may his family find comfort and healing in this difficult time.

Philip the son of his fourth son Andrew. Charles and Michael would be second cousins, and William and Michael second cousins once removed.


Sad news, even though expected. Condolences to the extended family on the loss

The Romanian women national handball team played with a stripe of black tape on their left arms during last nights game against Spain at the World Championships in Germany, as a mark of respect following the death of the King earlier the same day.
It is good to see the reverence shown to the King, and the high regard in which he was held throughout the nation.

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?
I believe she will be HRH Princess Margareta of Romania, Custodian of the Crown.

In other defunct monarchies the title of King and Queen is no longer used, only by the last actual monarch (King Michael, King Constantine, King Simeon). The successors all avoid the title of King: Georg Friedrich, Prince of Prussia, Dom Duarte Pio, the Duke of Bragança, Maria Vladimirovna Romanova, Grand-Princess of Russia, Archduke Karl of Austria, Prince François d'Orléans, etc.

Last night, December 5, 2017, at the private royal residence of Aubonne (Switzerland), the first prayer was delivered by the Metropolitan Joseph IPS, assisted by an Orthodox priest from the Western European Metropolis and four nuns. CP Margareta, Prince Radu and Princess Maria were present. Prayers will be praised every night at the royal residence until Sunday December 10, 2017.

Today, December 10 Dubasii from all over the Mures Valley area paid a last tribute and kept a moment of silence in the memory of King Mihai at Săvârşin Castle.

I am impressed how well the former Royal House functions, given the fact that their organization and budget is only a fraction of that of the reigning Houses. Even more: some reigning Houses can take note of the quite good organized digital commuications by the Romanians.

I'd imagine we'll see a large gathering of his extended royal cousins in attendance.

I'd be very surprised not to see queen Sofia and her sister Princess Irene.

I know that other heirs don't use monarchical titles so I found it odd that the Romanian news agencies were suggesting that Margareta would use the title of Queen. Perhaps it was a bad translation as I've checked the Romanian Royal House press releases and can't find a single mention of anything even vaguely suggesting that she would style herself that way.

I expect a full turnout of Balkan royals & maybe some of the Habsburg relatives. He does have some first cousins alive (hopefully I got the cousins right this time) so some of them should be there.

And hopefully also the Fürst and Fürstin von Hohenzollern as well their son, the Erbprinz Alexander. After all the late King Michael and his five daughters are all Hohenzollerns, it is a death in one of the three major branches (Hohenzollern, Prussia and Romania).

From Princess Margareta to the current Fürst:

Princess Margareta of Romania born Prinzessin von Hohenzollern
---> King Michael of Romania born Prinz von Hohenzollern
----> King Carol II of Romania, Prinz von Hohenzollern
-----> King Ferdinand of Romania, Prinz von Hohenzollern
-------> Leopold Fürst von Hohenzollern
-----> Wilhelm Fürst von Hohenzollern
----> Friedrich Fürst von Hohenzollern
---> Friedrich Wilhelm Fürst von Hohenzollern
Karl Friedrich Fürst von Hohenzollern

Having Hohenzollerns present would be both fitting as an honour to the most prominent member of the house and also a way to show that the conflict between the two family branches should be over.

To me it's proof of that Radu & Margarita know exactly what they're doing.
I know to little about the intrigues surrounding the family (and it's the wrong place to talk about it) to say more about them but, Radu's candidacy for president aside, they have handled their position very well.

Duke,
You are dreaming...Why more Royals than for the King of Thailand ?
We will see for sure Archduke Lorenz of Habsbourg -Este but not as Prince of Belgium. A lot of German Princes , Queen Sophia who attend his 90th birthday, other non reigning Royals ,some Bourbon Parme, consorts of Kings as for the King of Thailand ,Mrs Marlene Koening and certalny not the Duke of Vendome.

Even if the Fürst and Fürstin of Hohenzollern should attend i don't think the Hereditary Prince would attend as well. One also does not see him much at german noble Events which the Fürst and Fürstin attend.

I can see the King and Queen of Sweden attend his funeral as personal friends. They were close to King Michael and are close to Margareta and Radu.

I do not expect The Prince Consort of Denmark to attend any more things outside of Denmark (maybe no more things at all). If Denmark is represented, it is probably by The Queen alone or by Princess Benedikte.

The Prince of Wales will probably attend if he is available. Otherwise i would expect the Duke of Gloucester or the Duke of Kent represent QEII. I expect someone from the older generation if they send someone.

I doubt the Prince consort of Denmark will be present.
I have a feeling Constantine and Anne-Marie of Greece will attend too.
