Thank you Marlene! You are better informed than me.


Thank you.  I write about royalty - especially Queen Victoria's Descendants.  I have an extensive clip file on Michael going back to when he was born (and through the present.)   I have also corresponded with the king for many years .  I've got nice photos in my collection as well, but being a fusspot about copyright, I would never consider posting a photograph that was taken in the last 75 years.

by the way, there are two English-language bios on the king.  Crown Against Sickle, which was published in the 1950s (the author is Arthur Gould Lee), and the more recent (as in this year) bio by Ivor Porter.

Finally! I hope lots of interesting events will follow at Peles Castle [he has the right to use the Castle for special occasions] that we will comment on here.

That is your decision.  People enjoy seeing photos, but I do not advocate violating intellectual property laws.  I have many, many photos (and even more postcards) in my personal collection.  But if the item is under 75 years old, I would have to get permission from the copyright holder.    Images older than 75 years are also subject to intellectual property laws - not the original print but prints from the original.   If you order a photo from the Royal Archives, the print you receive will be copyrighted, even if the image is older than 75 years.


This doesn't stop people from doing it.  I don't want to get into an argument about it ... It's not up to me to stop anyone = but I won't do it.  In the early 1990s, I took action regarding intellectual property, but it was to me personally ...  as I said it is your choice.

Apparently the long legal wrangling over compensation for Peles castle has been settled--in Michael's favor. He has been awarded EUR 36 for it.

I think this is his vocation in life. He has no better thing to do but to harass the RF for his "rights". The mistakes Carol II has made will still pursue the RF for some time. But at least support for “Prince” Paul is diminishing, even among his Romanian-communist friends. The parliament is said to have voted in favor of the RF with only 16 votes against.

No, not long at all ... Intellectual property laws are tightened and extended all the time.

The Romanian president still has to sign the legislation.  Michael won't get all the money at once - it will be paid in increments.

Do we have any information on the relationship between Queen Anne and Queen Mother Helen?
Did the Queen Mother approve of her son's choice?
Just wondering.
