From what i know, their relationship when they were kids were "ok, love but not friends" it when Carol and Lisabeta got older it when the trouble starts. i could be wrong but thats the feeling i get when i read about Marie and her eldest children.

Interesting that different people see the same photograph with a different eye. To mine, Elizabeth looks thoroughly fed up and about to throw a tantrum.

I think the nanny, Carol's tutor and "Aunty" all contributed to the seperation of affection between mother and son.

Carol I and Carmen Sylva decided the Crown Princess was "unfit" to raise her children.  They undermined her in any way they could.

I wonder if Missy was close to young Affie. She did not write a lot about him in her memoirs.

In the 1980's the Cartier historian Hans Nadelhoffer quite by chance on a visit to the current Queen of Romania at her home in Switzerland found the necklace in pieces in the bottom of her jewelry casket...the sapphire had long been sold.

We've had many discussions on this subject--you've been a part of many of them, Eric.

Among the many threads this has been discussed on is the one on Balkan jewels

http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=5093.msg123509#msg123509

It has several photos of the sapphire pendant (including the 2 posted here as well as one of Frederike wearing it) and some other tidbits about the sapphire, the chain (which belonged to Nancy Leeds originally) and what happened to it.
