Princess Ileana of Romania was "emancipated" earlier today by decree, reports the Associated Press.
The announcement was signed by her mother, Queen Marie, and all three members of the Regency Council, in the name of the young King Michael.
This decree is "in accordance with Romanian law" that members of the Royal Family, when reaching their 18th birthday, become "of age."
This decree will enable Princess Ileana to "receive and manage" her portion of the estate left to her by her late father, King Ferdinand.
