Re: Prince Karl Friedrich of Hohenzollern not Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen

Yet the Romanian parliament and government address the oldest daughter of late King Michael as HM the curatrix of the crown giving her an official position in the country that the Prince of Hohenzollern does not have.
If the country that has evolved from the kingdoms of James II is able to legally change things than why not accept the same legal changes by the country once ruled by king Michael? Just because it's a republic? Over the last decades we have seen republics take an active position in who they accept as the heir of their former reigning dynasty in those cases we ought to accept the outcome of that nation's decision and not revert back to a constitution that has been replaced.
The two situations are not analogous. Prince Karl Friederick has undisputed rights under the succession laws of the (abolished) Kingdom of Romania.
In contrast, the Duke of Bavaria, whilst universally recognised as the genealogical representative of James II, has no rights in English, Scottish or British laws, and does not claim any.
A very good post, Johan. I am in agreement with you. The daughter of King Michael is clearly regarded as the heir to her father by the Romanians.
