King Simeon II and Queen Margarita current events

If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
Just wondering, ho much is King Simeon still involved in Bulgarian politics these days? Does any of his sons live in Bulgaria or do they all stick to Spain (can' t blame them if they do).
If I click on the link, it says it's HTTP 403 Forbidden and I don't have the authorization to view the page.

Ahh, I refreshed it and it worked. What a charming family! Can anybody ID who each of the King's sons and grandsons are? I can tell where Kalina is with baby Simeon :)
King Simeon's biography

Do you know if there is a good biography of King Simeon in English. He has been leading a very dignified and fascinating life. I like his son Kyril very much. He is handsome and looks like his father. He seems to show an interest in Bulgaria, unlike his other brothers. Please let me know. What about the Queen? She is very discreet. Does she speak Bulgarian and is she sctive in the Bulgarian social life?

I couldn't find a biography in other language but bulgarian. Bulgarian press doesn't like "king" Simeon very much. As a former prime-minister he is unpopular here and there are no materilas about his family. Sometime appears historic notices, but nothing special.

King Simeon's biography

Have your read his new biography? Do you know an English version of it? Where can we find it? I live in the US.

НДСВ - Галерия - Албума „Дългът преди всичко” може да намерите в книжарницата на БАН -

Thanks for your help. I contacted his staff a month ago in Madrid and Sofia but they have never replied to me as of today which is very surprising as they have been very helpful to me in the past especially Mia Morero and Alida Rizova. I do not have the contact information of the Royal Family Spokesperson, I think she is a lady. If someone has her professional e-mail address or phone number (professional numbers only) I would be happy to have it. I think Galya is her first name.

Court Fails to Present Former Bulgaria Tsar with Birthday Gift
16 June 2009

The District Court in the city of Plovdiv decided Tuesday to postpone for October the so-called "Krichim palace" ownership case.

Bulgaria's former Tsar, Simeon Saxe-Coburg, and his sister Maria Luisa seek to regain ownership on the former Krichim royal residence, and were hoping to hear the decision of the Court on the issue within a month.

The Court was expected to give a clear indication of how they would rule as early as Tuesday, which happens to be Simeon's 72nd birthday.

Saxe-Coburg accepts heavy defeat, says not leaving Bulgaria
5 July 2009

A ruffled Simeon Saxe-Coburg refused to pass blame on the evening of July 5 after exit polls gave his party, the National Movement for Stability and Progress, no chance of winning any seats in the next legislature.

"This is not the time for deep introspection and drawing conclusions. I did not expect this result, but the voice of people is the voice of god," Saxe-Coburg said.

Asked whether his party's poor showing was the result of controversies sparked by the two partners in the ruling coalition, Saxe-Coburg said: "I don't think it was our partners, but may be our participation in the triple coalition. People wanted a change, it happens".
