There is no crown to pass on.
There is no Hohenzollern interest in the Romanian throne.
There is no request from Romania for any Hohenzollern to come to Romania and campaign for the monarchy.
There are self-declared supporters of the monarchy who fight against any logical progress, any change that would allow the Royal Family to continue and any change made by any other monarchy in Europe, to be suggested by the Romanian King. A gold star to anyone who can explain that one.
There is an old and frail King, who asks his supporters to respect his wishes and accept his eldest daughter as his heir. In 2016, centuries and centuries after women ruled England, Russia, Japan and other monarchies in the world, how is it so hard for certain people to accept that it is natural for succession to go to a daughter, at the very least when a son is unavailable?
I wonder if these supporters would have these same views if they themselves only had daughters, and were told, by law, that all their properties would be scattered to the winds, or their claims to a business, land or property would be sent to the State, or to some distant relation never seen, just to ensure a man would benefit and the women kept from it.
There is no crown to pass on, it's abolished. The claim on it, is in the hands of the Royal Family, who are the only ones who do anything in Romania to advocate the restoration of the monarchy and raise the profile of the institution.
I hope the King, in his perilous state, is proud of the work done by his daughter in this regard, and maybe those zealots who claim to support the cause he personally represents, could open their ears and minds to the Kings wisdom of updating and adapting an institution that cannot function in our day, without becoming part of it.
