Romania and Moldova have declared a day of mourning for Anne, who died Aug. Some, however, have criticized the lavish scale of the official mourning period and funeral, scheduled for Saturday at the Curtea de Arges royal cemetery in central Romania.
"This family has no connection to us," said Ramona Pit, a builder.
Anne married King Michael six months after communists forced him to abdicate in December 1947.
Under communism, "authorities indoctrinated and methodically destroyed King Michael with so many lies," painter Stefan Ciltea, a friend of the royal family, told the AP.
Michael was expelled from Romania when he tried to return to visit family graves at Christmas 1990.
President Klaus Iohannis presented his condolences Wednesday at the Peles Castle in the mountain resort of Sinaia, where the wife of deposed king Michael is lying in state.
