Princess Margareta on Wednesday said that she will respect the king’s oath and, with emotion and honor, with a sense of duty, as a good Romanian and Crown Custodian, she will devote her life and work to the Romanian nation and to Romanians everywhere.
“Called to succeed the good King Mihai, who bequeathed to me the sacred legacy of his faith and love of Romania, I shall continue his work and abide by his convenant. In the effort to develop and consolidate the country, I shall have for a model the example set by our father and his belief in the destiny of the Romanian people. I express my deep gratitude to the four previous generations of my family, who created the bond between nation and Royal House,” mentioned the Proclamation of the Romanian Crown Custodian issued on Wednesday.
According to Princess Margareta, one and a half century have brought Romania modern institutions, development, consolidation and openness to the rest of world.
“During his long life, the fourth king of Romania found succor in faith, hope and patience. In every circumstance, he responded with justice and, where possible, with forgiveness. I am certain that, in the future, Romanians will continue to love the Crown, united in mind and deed, for the sake of national advancement in the context of the European Union and the North-Atlantic Treaty Organization. With deep feeling and honor, with a sense of duty, as a good Romanian and Custodian of the Crown, I will dedicate my life and work to our nation and to Romanians all over the world. So help us God!” said the Proclamation.
