Sad news, though hardly a surprise.

And Prince Radu is right. We can only pray.

Princess Margareta's husband about the health of the King:"Nici regele, nici regina nu pot să meargă spre mai bine. Partea bună a lucrurilor este că nu există niciun motiv de ngrijorare imediată, n sensul că organismul funcționează, dar la fiecare săptămnă și lună care trece este din ce n ce mai fragil și din ce n ce mai n nevoia de a fi ajutat." ( Neither the king or the queen can't really emprove. The good part of things is there is no reason for immediate worry, which means the body is functioning, but every week or month that is passing he is more and more fragile and he needs more and more to be helped").

There is a lot of need of prayer for the King.

Has the health of the King taken a turn for the worse recently?

I was out of the country, so I only just read an article from 20 July wherein Ioan Luca Vlad said that His Majesty is in a condition that "has less good days."

It seems that Queen Anne is still in a stable state.

We will undoubtedly get informed when there is news. So far we may assume there is little change. It is the same as with other very old and frail monarchs, like King Bhumibol of Thailand or the late Pope Johannes-Paulus II.

About the King's health and about the relationship between the monarchists and the King's Family:

Ora regelui


Many reactions to this from the monarchists especially about the new project of law, the Succession of the Hohenzollerns and the question of the Restoration of Monarchy.

It is idle to speculate.

However, the easy answer is almost definitively no.

The King is nearly 95 years old, suffers from cancer and is too frail and ill to be able to attend the funeral of his wife of 68 years. He will remain in Switzerland. It is well known that it can be extremely detrimental, medically speaking, to inflict any unnecessary changes in regimen on persons of a certain age and health condition.

There seems no point in speculating about King Michael's living arrangements since his wife's death, nor to infer anything untoward concerning the arrangements as they stand.

We're not indifferent, but there's a time and place for everything, and without any information at all, there's no basis to assume anything at this stage. I think it's safe to assume that the only thing on the mind of the Royal Family at this stage, is that the King is as well as can be, and that the Queen is laid to rest in a dignified and appropriate way.

A beautiful article dedicated to HM the King:

The idea that the Parliament should recognize with the new project of law HM the King as Head of the Royal House is ridiculuos. He has been Head of that House since 1940. He needs to be restored on the Throne. Obviously now nobody speaks anymore about more "trasfer of power" from the King to his eldest daughter.

King Michael's Health & Transfer of Duties

The King is not reigning and only has "soft power."



What His Majesty did is make it known that Crown Princess Margarita would be taking over his public responsibilities.



In that way, it is almost equivalent to the establishment of a regency: the King is not well, and his heir must act on his behalf.

Message of His Majesty the King, 1 March 2016



In the last few weeks, I have received news of a serious medical diagnosis. The situation has arisen in the year in which the Royal Family and Romania celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Dynasty and the modern Romanian State.



I am confident that my daughter, Margareta, the Custodian of the Crown, will find the wisdom and the strength to represent me and to fulfil all my public activities.



I have asked the Royal Council to continue to serve their mission and to provide their advice to the Custodian of the Crown.



Michael R



1 March 2016

The fact that Princess Margareta represents the King is not something new. It is ompirtant that the King remains the Head of the Royal Family.

The King is almost ninety-five years old. He is ill with cancer. His wife of sixty-eight years has just died.

King Michael is a thoroughly good man.

But he is mortal, as are we all.

Until he is alive he is a symbol of Romania. He is very respected even by the so called republicans. After him everything will change.

Until he is dead?

Other kings have abdicated or stepped down for health, Albert for instance. I am not a fan of 'old should retire so the CP can stop waiting' attitude some have about Elizabeth and others, but health reasons? A man well into his 90's, with 2 forms of cancer, should be able to make what decisions needed.

But Margareta has been stepping up for years. And since there is no actual monarchy, I guess no real need for official change. Her day will come.
