Their Majesties King Michael and Queen Anne have indeed borne up under some difficult years and aged gracefully.    Regards,  AP.

It is exactly 85 years today that then 5 year old King Mihai was proclaimed King of Romania.

This was commemorated today by TRH Princess Margarita and Prince Radu at the Romanian Atheneum
with the PM and the Government in attendance.A special film on the life of the King was screened and
the National Anthem was sung.

I think he is the oldest and most senior royal figure in the chain of royals in Europe.

Likewise important is that the new house rules completely cut the cord with the German branch of the family. They have no succession rights. In the event the Romanian succession ever fell vacant, it was theoretically possible for the German Sigmaringens to advance a claim based upon the agreement between (the future) Carol I and the (then) Romanian government. One suspects that His Majesty KM was determined that no mischief would ever come from the German cousins.

Princess Margareta inherits throne
--
In a private ceremony King Mihai I of Romania designated Princess Margareta to be his dynastic successor. Her Royal Highness Margareta is to inherit the Romanian throne and after the King's death she is to become guardian of the Crown. The New Dynasty Status of the Royal Family, which His Majesty signed 6 decades after the Communists had forced him into abdication, makes the throne inheritance clear. Prince Radu of Hohenzollern-Veringen is going to advance in rank to His Royal Highness the Prince of Romania.
In the document by the Royal House there is mentioned: "I, King Mihai I, on behalf of my authority as Head of the Royal House of Romania, obeying my duty to history and to my family's successors, in keeping with the European Union's principles and values that guarantee every person's right to express identity and ideals, by acting as my will pleases, decide that my eldest daughter, Princess Margareta, will be my dynastic successor as Head of the Royal House of Romania after my death."
Throne succession in European style
King Mihai I is demanding the Parliament of Romania to give up the use of the salic law if the Romanian nation and the Parliament find it appropriate to use monarchy as a form of governing. His Majesty has argued that, as token of Romania's EU integration and given the European Convention of Human Rights, the Royal House has modified the principles and use of the salic law that will no longer be applied when decising on succession, for it fits neither the rights in today's Europe nor Romanian society's values.
According to the new Status of the Royal House, the Crown is going to pass to the first male to be born or, in case of no male, to the first female. (...)
The Prince of Romania
Prince Radu has become a Prince of Romania to be called His Royal Highness. Such ranks are granted ad personam and they are not transmisible. The Prince is going to remain a non-dynastic member of the Royal House of Romania. After the King's death, he is to become a Prince of Romania. When Nicolae, the son of Princess Elena, turns 25, he will also become a Royal Highness.
In the Status there is also added that, apart from the King, the Queen, their daughters and the people mentioned elsewhere in the document, there is no other member of the Royal House of Romania. Therefore any addition of new members may emerge only with consent from the Head of the Royal House of Romania.

Marlene has some photos from the ceremony renaming a square in Bucharest after King Michael. It's at the intersection of Kiseleff and Strada Ion Mincu street.

Love to have King Michael play a more elderly statesman role in Romania. He has seen the country through decades and has more to offer than the other former Balkan rulers and has experience dealing with the people and politicians.
