Has Nicholas Medforth-Mills stayed away from Romania following the revocation of his royal style and titles?

He keeps his Facebook-page updated, in Romanian, and that is a strong signal in itself. It's clear that he has formed a bond with Romania, and whatever reasons lay behind the decision of the King last year, I am more and more sure will be worked through, so that Nicholas can return to Romania, and be part of its dynastic future.

I doubt he will return as part of their future, how ridiculous would it look for him to be given the title Prince and be promoted as the future then have it taken all away and be sent away in what is effectively an 'exile' only to then have him return.
Deposed Royal Families struggle for credibility at the best of times, that would destroy any credibility and future that the this RF has.

I would much prefer Nicholas to be the future of this RF but I can't see how now it would be helpful or possible.

Unfortunately, there is presedence in the Romanian RF for titles being revoked, and restored, as in the case of Princess Sophie. Although I completely agree that this whole thing is unfortunate, there are ways to reverse this decision without being too foolish, but it would most likely involve putting the blame for the original decision on a weak and unfounded basis, or on the King himself. Neither are very desireable, but in the end, the future of the RF is what matters, and I think it needs Nicholas in a visible position.

What you wrote is the first response we saw from Nicolae on that was made last August and showed clearly that it was something that was not consistent. I think that there will be continuity.
Having lost his title without it seems obvious cause can be returned to his country.
I think that remains popular with the Romanian people and should not lose that contact.

The guy only wished everyone a happy new year and that he is thinking about Romania and everybody at home. That is all. Reading dynastic aspirations in all this...



By the way, it seems that when Nicholas was still in the royal family, his FB was updated by someone else. No idea how this is at the moment. Could very well be written by that person indeed.

I agree... Nicholas Medforth-Mills, eh... I mean Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth-Mills, eh... I mean His Royal Highness Prince Nicolae of Romania, eh... I mean Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth-Mills eh... oh... is he restored?... eh... then I of course mean His Royal Highness Prince Nicolae of Romania again...

It is a circus without precedent there in Romania...

I am curious to learn how you found out? Did you ask royalists? How did you find these royalists? How do you know the royalists you asked did represent "many royalists"? Mr Medforth-Mills has less than 5000 "friends" (are these the royalists you mean?) on FB, to compare it with Rihanna (86 million) or Cristiano Ronaldo (76 million)...

D and P if the queen Elizabeth of Great Britain would have a page of FB , she would get less friends than Rihanna or Cristiano Ronaldo, we are not a lot to admire the royals even Elizabeth of Britain, the people prefer to admire Brad Pitt, Rihanna or the Cristiano Ronaldo.

Of course but where are "the royalists" the previous poster wrote about? And how did he know they represent "many"? Just factual questions. Is it from the FB-page? The president of Romania has more followers. Is that enough to conclude anything?

My guess is that the average man in the street in Brasov, Timisoara or Cluj has no idea who Nicholas Medforth-Mills is...

Some of us want a future for the monarchy in Romania. That's the basis for positive attitudes.
Well, that, and the fact that it's just less tedious to be positive than the opposite.

Obviously you do not know too many Romanian royalists.

I have been trying to keep up with this board since returning just two days ago -and unfortunately, I am not doing so great at it! Please assist my understanding as to the reasoning behind his "demotion". Has this ever been released?

And yes, an ex monarch during the napoleonic time was much more "royal" than "His Imperial Majesty Napoleon, Emperor of the French", who was an usurper and crowned himself, although Master of at least two thirds of europe at the time. The only way to be "royal" is to get married into a royal house or to be born into it!

Talking about "reigning" and "governing", Prince Albert´s duties cover those comparing a Mayor of european cities like Manchester, Naples, Hamburg or Munich (note that Monaco is about as bis as the "English Park" in Munich...).
Although he is "governing" the influence of, for instance the british Queen, head of a former world power and still head of the Commonwealth, is much bigger!
Many people seem to forget ALL royalty began with a person, like Napoléon, deciding - for wharever reason - that he wanted to be an emperor/king/tsar, and thus, he was. Nobody is more "royal" than anybody else; there isn't anybody born, nor has anybody ever been born with "royal blood," or born of the "blood royal." "Royalty," and all titles, styles, images, etc. associated with it are only concepts. Royals are living, breathing human beings, albeit extremely wealthy, and nothing more. There is no reason for me to ever curtsey to anybody, be it a king, queen, prince, etc. The only entity I would ever curtsey to is Jesus Christ himself. GOD never sanctioned anybody to be "royal"; William the Conquerer was not born with a piece of paper from the LORD above stating Wm was given a divine privilege to be the future King of England. He had the blood of a human being just as we all do. Again, royalty is a concept only - nothing more. The next time someone mentions Napoléon crowned himself and wasn't really royalty, and you believe that, then you must also believe that no one is really royalty. Just sayin'. 👑 😲😩😣😢😭

Quite many indeed.

it is not very easy to know the truth but it seems Mr Medforth Mills misses Romania and maybe misses his envolvment in the activities of the Royal family too.

Which one of them?

No news of any meeting with them asfter what happened in august.

We can not judge how many persons are for a new monarchy, they are perhaps many but there must be for more a majority of people for a new monachy in the country because a king or a queen must be above the politic parties.

Actually, this is not quite the whole picture regarding the presence of the Romanian Royal Family on social media.

The personal Facebook account of one "Nicholas De Roumanie Medforth-Mills" has 5k friends and 5k followers.

The public Facebook page of one "Principele Nicolae al Romaniei" (which was administered by the Royal House) has 25k likes.

The public Facebook page of one "Nicolae de Roumanie Medforth-Mills" (which has been administered by Nicholas since leaving Romania) has nearly 7k likes.

Conversely...

The public Facebook page of the Royal Family of Romania ("Familia Regala a Romaniei" - administered by the Royal House) has 132k likes.

The public Facebook page of the Princess Margarita of Romania Foundation ("Fundatia Principesa Margareta a Romaniei" - administered by the Royal House) has 58k likes.

The public Facebook page of Princess Maria of Romania ("ASR Principesa Maria a Romaniei" - administered by the Royal House) has 15k likes.

Ergo, the social media presence of Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth-Mills (he was always known by this name--never just as "Nicholas Medforth-Mills") is not inconsiderable, especially considering all that has happened recently.
