Re: another monarchy?

Ever since her father died Margarita has been styled as Custodian of the Crown and Her Majesty on official events in Romania.
On May 10, the Prime Minister of Romania referred to Margaret as "your Majesty, the custodian of the crown". Is he saying the Romania is in some way a monarchy? How does Margaret place among the reigning royals of Europe?
Since Romania is still a republic, Margareta, chose not to use the title of Queen and is instead Custodian of the Romanian Crown, a title that Michael I offered her. She has in the past attended and addressed the Parliament of Romania. The Speaker of the House is a pro-royalist and there is support in the parliament. Things are moving slowly. Whether the monarchy returns or things move to Margareta becoming some form of head of state and still using her current title. Who knows. She has made several visits to other countries and has been greeted by the monarchs there. She's met her namesake Queen Margarethe of Denmark.
