Reading the statement, I got the impression the King believes Romania must stay as a republic and by taking away his grandson's title he's assuring the Royal Family will come to an end with the generation of his daughters.

According to DC News sources, the king and Nicholas Medforth-Mills took the decision together. Nicholas believed that he cannot cope with the role to continue the dynasty, and the burden of the function is too large for him.
Sources close to the Royal House said for DCnews that Nicholas will resume private life and personal projects in another country, but will continue the philanthropic actions in which he was involved in Romania.

" His Majesty said that the Romanian royal family and the society of those times will need a government under the sign of modesty, well-balanced, with morals, respect and always thinking of others."

Anyone else wondering what it is that Nicholas did that showed poor morals in his grandfather's mind?

Well all countries need a government under the sign of modesty, well-balanced, with morals, respect and always thinking of others, but seeing as that tends not to be achievable most of the time, I'm not sure what that has to do with anything - especially if what LadyFinn has posted above is correct and that the decision was taken together and seems to have come more from Nicholas than anyone else.

Rough translation (I don't speak romanian)
"It was communicated to members of other European royal families, was not a hasty decision, but made after consultation with the King and the Royal Council. Prince Nicholas could not play the role he has been in. This gap between the will of Nicholas and means to make an heir to the Royal Crown had not met. It's better to take such a decision because Nicholas has to go its own way.
He had involvement in professional sports, private activities that do not match the activity of the Crown, had no diplomatic experience and these challenges were too large and could not not go so well in the future", said Ioan Luca Vlad, private advisor of the Romanian Royal Family.

This makes me think, wasn't Nicholas well enough guided to his role when he started. Wasn't he told what he can do and what he can not do? And did he decide alone what he did as a prince, and decide his work duties, or did crown princess Margarita accept them, if he has done something which the king thinks it is not good to the Royal House.

I guess his sister Karina is now the heiress. Will she become a Princess?

So sad, Nicolae seemed to be such a great guy with a tremendous spirit of service.

The Romanian Royal family is pretty much over now. Margarita and Nicolae seemed to have such a connection with the people. Their hard work and presence made a restoration seem possible.

This is curious, perhaps Nicolae is a confirmed bachelor?

I think the "means to make a heir" refers to Nicholas' ability to be a heir, not his ability to procreate.

"Really, this might be Romania."

Oh wait, it is.

Guess this explains Margarita and Radu's recent visit to Switzerland.

Yes, that is what I think he meant too. Let's hope that we will get a good news article in english so that we don't have to rely on google translations, which often change meanings a little.

More of Ioan Luca Vlad's interview, also with google translation:
"Some of us could watch the grandson of king Michael on private route. I saw very good things that increased stature and role of the Crown in our country, but also a certain internal mismatch was not noted in any way. This does not work with scandals, with news sources, but simply a mismatch between the ideals emotional Prince and the rules they impose and the role that it assumed.. Here is the big difference to other situations in which withdrew the titles of Prince. He did not do something, it is a decision for the future, and not a penalty, it is a decision that Prince is consent, a decision that King took it with sadness, but enables him to concentrate on other things, ecology, youth, business, any would like to do abroad. Not only that title, is the role that he assumed and which involved 24 hours of 24 to devote to this mission. You can understand that it was too much for him. All the things that made them remain, all projects that involved can not sponge dynasty remains strong, and he remains almost to the royal family in his capacity as private."
The decision was taken by His Majesty, but after some counsel which has included Prince Nicholas, so it is perfect with his consent, said the lawyer.
Regele Mihai i-a retras titlul de Principe nepotului său Nicolae şi l-a exclus din Linia de Succesiune la Coroana României

I'm very surprised and puzzled. I hope that some more and clearer informations will be released about the reasons behind this decision.
But what lets me much and much puzzled is that on a side they say that the King has decided that the Royal Family will come to an end after Crown Princess Margarita's "reign and life", but on the other side there is still a "line of succession" which continues after Margarita.

And finally something in english:
...Royal House adviser Ioan Luca-Vlad told Digi24 immediately after the decision was announced that the move came following “an emotional disparity between Nicolae’s ideals and the House’s standards.” It’s not a punishment, but a decision for the future, to which King Mihai came with a particular sadness, the royal adviser explained. He also mentioned the decision was taken ‘in harmony with the involved persons.’ ‘We should not look in any garbage cans as we won’t find anything,’ the adviser added.
According to Luca-Vlad, Nicolae will remain a member of the Royal House, but he will leave Romania, as there are many foreign NGOs that want to collaborate with him on various projects....

Perhaps he needed a lighter schedule to give him some breathing room, even reigning families get that. And why take away his title? There are plenty of princes and princesses not in the line of succession. And he is leaving the country? Sounds almost like exile.

Wow, that's a real shocker.... what i make of the various articles is that Nicolai simply couldn't handle the role and either Mihai took the decision based on what he saw was happening or Nicolai asked him to do so..
