Romania Holds State Funeral For Former King Michael

Tens of thousands of Romanians joined European royals on December 16 to attend a grand state funeral and pay their respects to late King Michael, who died in Switzerland at the age of 96 on December 5. The crowd cheered and shouted "King Michael!" as the coffin, led by Orthodox priests and a guard of honor, was transported by an army jeep towards the cathedral where Michael was later laid to rest.
