King Michael I, Romania’s last monarch, died last month, at his private residence in Switzerland. He was 96 years old.
Her Royal Highness Margareta, Princess of Romania, is next in line for the position of head of the Royal House.
She is and will remain the Custodian of the Crown of Romania after King Michael’s death. Her husband Radu is Prince of Romania. In a message to Romanians, Princess Margareta praises her father’s tireless work for the Romanian people.
“A new time starts for me and my family and for the Royal House of Romania. Inspired by the same sentiments as my father, I will continue his work, for the fulfilment of our mission towards the Romanian people.”
The Royal House of Romania currently has only a symbolical status as the country is a republic ran by the President and Parliament.
