Crown Princess Margareta to become royal patron of Poland Army's 17th Mechanised Brigade

Romanian Crown Princess Margareta is the royal patron of the 17th Mechanised Brigade of the Polish Army, which, according to Polish officials, will be renamed King Carol II of Romania.

"The Romanian crown princess has proudly and gratefully accepted the proposal of Polish officials, considering that this noble initiative contributes to deepening bilateral relationship between Romania and Poland, its defence and national security components, as well as their joint European prospects," according to a press statement released on Friday by King Mihai I's Press Office.

Margareta is quoted as saying the Polish initiative is "a remarkable example for working together inside the European Union, intertwining the present and the values of the hard-tried modern history of our continent."

The ceremonies related to this event are scheduled for around May 10.

The 17th Wielkopolska Mechanised Brigade is the successor of the 57th Infantry Regiment of the Polish Army that in 1937 was named after then Romania's King Carol II.
