A rare devoted couple that seem to enjoy each other's company.

Yes. One of the rare royal to royal marriages that lasts genuinely unlike the Spanish ones...

Hi,

Simeon of Bulgaria has returned to his country;  and although not former monarchs - Maria Vladimirovna lives in Russia and Alexander of Serbia lives there now.  And Leka of Albania (now deceased) and his son, Leka, are there now;  also, Zog was recently reburied in his homeland.

Larry

Although Maria and George visit Russia (and George works for a Russian company,) Maria's main residence is in Spain and George lives in Brussels.

I do wonder if George has a relationship with his father. Maria had a tiff with her half sister (who has the money from her father Kirby)  and they were not talking. Quite drama in the Romanov family.The Romanian one is comparative tranquil in comparison.

King Michael of Romania has been diagnosed with cancer and he is currently undergoing a complex and demanding treatment. He is suffering from chronic leukemia and epidermoid carcinoma and he has undergone surgery in Switzerland. This has prevented him from appearing in public and he has a released the following statement concerning his illness:
“In recent weeks we have received news of a serious medical diagnosis. This situation comes in the year when family and country are celebrating 150 years since the founding of the dynasty and the modern Romanian state. My daughter Margarita, the Custodian of the Crown, I am sure will find the wisdom and the strength to represent me and to carry out my public duties. I have asked the Royal Council to continu its mission and provide advise to the Custodian of the Crown.

The Romanian royals have not been without controversy. Prince Nicholas was offered a place within the royal family and then had a falling out with Radu a short while ago.

I have the impression that Radu wants to be King after his father in law passes. I neither see or want that to happen!

This is absolute nonsense.
The King made the decision to remove Nicholas from the line of succession. It was nothing to do with Prince Radu or the Crown Princess who had both been incredibly supportive in helping Nicholas develop his role within Romania and learn the language.
Whatever has happened to Nicholas is the result of his OWN actions and activities.
It really is depressing to read your nasty comments about Prince Radu. He is an honest, decent, intelligent, honourable man who makes a huge contribution to Romania and to the royal house. The only 'ambition' he has is to effectively support the Crown Princess in her current and future role - and despite the vindictiveness of people like you - he is doing very well indeed. Long may he continue.

We will have to agree to disagree on this.

Margarita has two nephews only. If they want to maintain a royal house, one of them will have to become a Prince of Romania. This is because of their house laws.

Who do you suggest to lead the family after the inevitable death of King Michael?

And based on your extensive knowledge - under which house law does Prince Radu become King??

Trying to get into your mind set (a.k.a. ignorance and irrational prejudice) I suppose the Prince Radu of your "I have the impression" will simply ignore the house laws because as you and the Romanian gutter press appear to believe:-
1. King Michael is an old man and incapable of making decisions. Obviously Prince Radu must be pulling his strings.
2. Crown Princess Margarita is, after all, only a woman. Obviously, she's incapable of making her own decisions. Her husband must be pulling the strings.
3. Prince Radu is a former actor. He was in the Securitate! He's not royal! He's no better than you and me! He's can't be committed to public service via the royal house. He MUST be using his position for political and financial gain.
4. Nicholas Medforth-Mills is stripped of his title by the King for dubious activities and actions in Romania. But, as we all know the King is far too old to be making decisions. It must be the ambitious former actor and Securitate spy, Prince Radu, who, in true tabloid, panto style and consumed with jealousy plotted the downfall of Mr Medforth Mills.

It's sad that such a good and decent man has to put up with this kind of offensive rubbish - and surprising that one of the so-called 'moderators on this board seems to have no qualms in propagating it.
