If true I have this nagging feeling that yet another person with an increasing visibility and from what I've heard a growing popularity has been gotten rid off...

I was a guest of HM Margareta for the weekend in Bucharest. Sophie lives about 3 hours from Bucharest. Royal Musings: a 30th anniversary celebration in Bucharest with a book launch

Royal Musings: Then off to dinner at the Elisabeta Palace

So many positive steps in those 30 years and mixed with some sadness too.

It may have something to do with the 30th Anniversary celebrations of Margareta's first visit to Romania - she was accompanied by Princess Sofia back then and it seems to make sense for Sofia to be more visible these days. Also, Princess Sofia is in the process of creating a new book of photography depicting life in Romania, so she is close by to attend functions and engagements.

That's my take on it anyway.

On Friday, 28 February , Princess Sofia participated, during the Alpin Film Festival, organized in Brasov, in the special screening of the documentary "White Carpathia", made by the British producer Charley Ottley.

Her Majesty Margareta and her sisters make available to the National Committee for Emergency Situations, free of charge, 53 individual accommodation spaces in the hotels and villas from the Pelesh Estate, for those who will have to be quarantined.

According to Eurohistory blog Angelica Kreuger (daughter of Princess Irina & her first husband John Kreuger) & her husband Richard Knight divorced in November 2018 after 11 years of marriage:

Eurohistory: Belated News Of A Divorce In The Extended Romanian Royal Family

They have two daughters Courtney (b.2007) and Diana (b.2011)

And a rather sad conclusion: "As far as is known, Courtney Knight is the only great-grandchild of the King and Queen who was able to meet the Romanian royal couple; this took place during a private visit to Switzerland in 2009."

She was just two then, so she doesn't even remember them now...

The Household of Her Majesty the Custodian of the Crown offered school supplies to 50 children from the village of Săvârșin, to be able to continue their lessons at home, without interrupting the educational process during the state of emergency in Romania.

To those who could not attend the Romanian Athenaeum on the evening of 18 January 2020, at the 30th anniversary of the return of the Royal Family to the country, we offer you the full registration of the gala concert.

In these difficult days for all of us, we hope that the music of the young Romanian masters will delight your soul.

During her residence in the United States, Princess Maria was arrested back to 2009! (Something new for me)

I have wondered for months why Princess Maria has disappeared. She looked like enjoying her royal role. Best wishes to her.

I wonder where the 'In late 2019, the princess is believed to have made the decision to withdraw from her role, and she has not appeared in a public capacity since that time.' is based on. Is it on her no longer appearing or on some specific insider knowledge that it was her own decision.

The five Girls of King Michel had any succès amond Royals and Nobility.
They married Commonors , which is not bad , but divorced a few years after their wedding. Why ?? I just read that 2 were arrested in the USA?

After reading about Princess Maria's arrest and depth of her 2009 money problems recently her withdrawal from any further public appearances most likely relates to these earlier problems. Whether this was her decision or a decision made by the crown we might not ever know.

I really enjoyed seeing Maria out with the Romanian people, she appeared to be well received and involved with many efforts. I miss seeing her.

It seems the former royal family was in constant financial problems. With Romania firm under Ceausescu there was no prospect on better times. Supporters had to donate money for the upbringing of the princesses.

Yes, the five princesses all have four HRH grandparents, which is unique, they have a lot of familial alliances with all royal families but made no marriage. Maybe all five princesses only wanted to "escape" the strict royal life of their ascetic, religious parents and wanted no royal or noble partner? Who knows?

The 2 arrests in the USA you refer to are Irina who was arrested with her husband,
a former sheriff’s deputy John Wesley Walker, in connection with cockfighting derbies held at their farm in Oregon between April 2012 and May 2013.
Romanian princess among 18 rounded up in alleged Oregon cockfighting ring - U.S. News. It was a sad and unfortunate situation all the way around.

And then this most unfortunate recent revelation with Princess Maria and her money problems back in 2009 sometime after a divorce in New Mexico in the US. Also sad.

So, probably enough said as they were years ago and both Irina and Maria appear to have moved on in their lives.

The late King Michael knew for Irina but happy not for Maria.

Why is this Revelation about Mia so late ???
