Queen Mary’s heart returns to the Romanian royal family

The royal family will open its gates to the public for a very special occasion: Queen Mary of Romania symbolically “returns” to the family.

The royals will get back the queen’s heart, which has been under the custody of Romania’s National History Museum. Placed in a beautifully crafted silver box, it will be given back to the family in a public ceremony in front of the museum on November 3.


From central Bucharest, a motorcade will escort the Royal Family to the town of Sinaia, home to one of the most important royal domains: The Peles Palace and Pelisor Palace. Queen Mary’s heart will be deposed in Pelisor Palace, in the very room where it had its last beat. This ceremony will be private, attended only by members of the Royal Family, clergy and military personnel.
