The litigation in which Prince Paul requests to be acknowledged as a full member of the Royal House entered its last stage, at the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ). ICCJ tried Prince Carol Mircea’s suit to be acknowledged in Romania, as well, as King Carol II’s legitimate son. This is the third time in the past 19 years that the suit is brought before the high court. A favourable decision would be tantamount to granting Prince Paul full recognition as a member of the Romanian Royal House. The trial started with an adjournment. By a decision pronounced in 1955 the Lisbon High Court ruled that Mircea Grigore Lambrino, Prince Paul’s father, was Carol II’s son. The ruling was confirmed in the 1990s by the Teleorman Court and, in 2010, the Bucharest Court of Appeal rejected as unfounded the appeal filed by King Mihai.
