Royal Diplomatic Reception returns to Royal Palace.

This year, the Royal Diplomatic Reception returned to the Throne Hall, in the Royal Palace of Bucharest, for the first time after 1947.

The Diplomatic Corps accredited to Romania was invited, in the presence of the Dean of the Diplomatic Corps, the Apostolic Nuntio, representatives of the Government and of the Royal Household.

The ceremony in the Throne Hall was followed by a dinner offered by the Custodian of the Crown in the State Dining Room.

The first Royal Diplomatic Reception took place 150 years ago, in the same Palace in December 1866, hosted by Carol I, then Prince Sovereign of the Romanian United Principalities

The CP wears what I believe was her mother's sapphire demi-parure.

Is this normal for a Republic?
