The relationship between a father and his daughter is a special one and in the case of a King and a Crown Princess, there is an additional element to that relationship that goes beyond the usual obligations one might expect from a daughter when her father is ill.

It seems obvious to me that Crown Princess Margarita was obliged to return to Romania and that King Michael will have very much wanted her to do so.

We all express symparhy and concern and pray for the recovery of the Sovereign but it's really surprising not to see all the family near a person with such a frail health.

Is concern for somebody's health "insidipus"m

I am sure in these circumstances we all have to pray for the King's health. He has had certainly a very tragic life. Now he needs prayers and support .

In real life, children are often not able to be with their parents constantly in times of crisis.

We know that the King is seriously ill but we do not know (a) what his wishes are (b) what the circumstances of his children are and (c) what the doctors are saying to the family. neither should we. It is none of our business. It might be more constructive to limit yourself to prayers rather than making insidious remarks and insinuations and obsessing unhealthily over the relationships of this particular family.

Hear, hear.
The Crown Princess is acting perfectly appropriate to the situation, and I certainly hope the King is allowed adequate rest in these difficult days, while he is in our prayers.

Your comments about the King, his in your view 'tragic life', who of his children is where and when, the continued sniping at what you see as a lack of sitting vigil next to the King, are usually best ignored, because they are both distasteful and cruel.

Now stop pretending to be innocently accused, and move on. The King needs rest while he is clearly fighting for his life, and the Crown Princess is filling her role in accordance with her fathers wishes. While we wait for more news, the best we can do is send our best wishes, and support the Royal Family in their efforts to represent the Crown, and the dynasty.

Romania's government should immediately pass a resolution to thank King Michael and recognize all the good that he has done, and officially allow him to use the title King. That would be a nice gesture and should be done while he's still living.

Well said! That would indeed be a great gesture.

The government does use the title king. The president released a statement regarding the king's health - Michael is acknowledged as a former head of state and receives a pension.

Yes, and the US government calls former presidents "President" as a courtesy, too, but that's not the same thing as being given the title and recognized as currently having the title.

It would be a nice gesture to do. I believe that Afghanistan did something like that for its former king.

His title is recognized but he is officially a former Head of State.

His title was taken away from him in 1947 and he is called "King" due to his former role as king.


I think that he should be granted the title again now by an official government proclamation. With all of the other things that he's gotten back, that would more or less be a restoration, but in a symbolic, modified role.

There will be no such a statement but he is always reffered as "HM King Mihai" by the majority of the leaders of the country.

The 1oth of May feast while the King is so ill is not really popular among all royalists some of them speaking even about a "coup":

There is precedence for such a measure, in the examples of the Crown Prince Nikola of Montenegro being recognized in a symbolic way, as well as the late King Zahir Shah being recognized as 'Father of the Nation' of Afghanistan, short of a full restoration of the monarchy.

It would be a good gesture by the Romanian politicians, and I share your sentiments fully.

Almost all leaders and all media speak about King Michael. That is already a HUGE difference with Austria where HI&RH Archduke Otto of Austria, Prince of Hungary was strictly called 'Otto Habsburg' even denying him the 'von'...

The Romanians are not that narrowminded and petty. It is King Michael before and after. And that counts for his daughters as well. Even in monarchies there are die-hard republicans speaking about Mr Borbˇn of Mr Von Amsberg. It is all pretty symbolical.

The Princess just represents her father as she has always done lately.

King Michael has been released from hospital today.

The King returns to his private residence, where his condition will continue to be monitored by doctors.

In addition to Queen Anne, Princess Elena is also with her parents during this time. Crown Princess Margarita is in contact with the team taking care of her father. She will return to Switzerland soon to review the situation.
