The Custodian of the Romanian Crown, HRH Margareta, and Prince Consort Radu will attend the funeral of the United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II, the Romanian Royal Family announced on Tuesday, according to Romania-Insider.

Her Majesty Margareta is the eldest daughter of late King Michael I. She remained the Custodian of the Crown of Romania after King Michael’s death in December 2017. However, the Royal House only has a symbolic role in Romania today.

The state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, will take place at Westminster Abbey on Monday, the Royal Family announced. Before the funeral, the Queen’s coffin will Lie-in-State in Westminster Hall for four days to allow the public to pay their respects.

State leaders and representatives of Royal Houses from around the world are expected to attend Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, including US president Joe Biden.

Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8 at the Balmoral Castle, aged 96, after a reign that spanned 70 years.
