After officially withdrawing from public life on Wednesday and passing the crown to Princess Margaret of Romania, former King Michael “is in a severe state of physical weakness and is receiving constant treatment,” according to a press release from the Royal House.
The former King was admitted to a clinic in Lausanne five days ago and “his condition has been steady up to now,” with the doctors being of the opinion that his progress will be relatively stable over the next few days.
Queen Anne is at the private residence in Switzerland, having been informed of the former King’s admission to hospital. Her health is stable and she is taking a course of treatment usual for her age, according to the press release.
Princess Margaret, custodian of the crown, and prince Radu have been visiting their majesties and remain in Switzerland. The former King’s other daughters are planning to travel to Switzerland within the next few days in order to be with their parents. “They have been in daily contact with the family and, with hope and sadness, have been following the development of their father’s state of health,” adds the press release.
