Do we know who the woman holding little Maria-Alexandra is or the gentleman standing next to her during the baptism, both dressed in traditional costume? I was assuming they were the Godparents or as already mentioned, due to travel restrictions, standing in for the Godparents.

Well no, but supporters of Nicolae and he himself still refer to him as Principele Nicolae al Romaniei in various things including his own organisation, so it's not surprising that their archbishop friend referred to his wife as a Princess.

Various places have also referred to little Maria-Alexandra as a princess or royal.

Video from 22nd December of Nicolae and Alina-Maria at the Rotenberg-Uzunov Gallery. The event was a surprise to Alina-Maria. Their friend Eduard Uzunov gave Maria-Alexandra two paintings to her room, one of them representing Maria-Alexandra surrounded by some of the most famous animated characters and another with a panda bear in the jungle. Nicolae also got a surprise: he received as a gift a portrait of his great-grandmother, Queen Maria.


Alina-Maria posted these photos to her Instagram

Photos of babies with their proud parents are always the best

She is such a sweet baby and her parents obviously adore her.

David Nivière posted to his Facebook an article from the christening published at this week's Point de Vue.
"This week in Point de Vue magazine, Royal Christening of Princess Maria-Alexandra of Romania in Curtea de Arges in Romania, January 23, 2021."
The article tells that Maria-Alexandra was baptized in the presence of some of her godparents, if I understand correctly via translation, she has 12 godparents.
The godparents of Maria-Alexandra who held her at the christening are prince Mihai and princess Emanuela Ghyka, close friends of Nicolae and Alina-Maria and descendants of one of the oldest families of the Romanian aristocracy. Other godparents photographed at the article are Tatian Diaconu and Flavia Pau.
Princess Elena and Nicolae's sister took part in the christening via phone.
There is a nice photo of the family with Alina-Maria's parents and brother.

Nicolae was today interviewed by Adrian Cojocaru at a broadcast
"Tomorrow I have a special guest at "Omul Potrivit" ("The Right Man"). Nicolae al Romaniei comes to the Digi FM studio to talk about the new miracle in his life, Maria-Alexandra, about family life, passions, charitable actions, care for the environment, the longing for HM King Mihai and HM Queen Ana, about royalty and what he likes most about Romanians."
Adrian Cojocaru - Mâine am un invitat special la _Omul... _ Facebook

Marilena Rotaru, the President of Mișcarea Pentru Regat Și Coroană (The Movement for the Kingdom and the Crown), about the interview
"A joy is the interview given today by His Royal Highness Prince Nicolae , on the show "The Right Man", made by Adrian Cojocaru on DigiFM. The joy of listening to the thoughts of a young man, concerned with the country and the world in which he lives, the understanding that personal good cannot be separated from the good of the community you belong to, traditional values ​​and historical truth. The joy of distinguishing the love for the place destined and become "home", as it was for his grandfather, King Mihai. The joy of hearing expressed, with modesty and warmth, the values ​​that a young Christian, from the blood of the Kings and Queens of Romania, puts at the foundation of his life: family, homeland and above them, faith in God."
Marilena Rotaru - O bucurie interviul acordat azi de... _ Facebook

King Mihai's grandson is considering entering politics. Nicolae al Romaniei does not exclude any involvement at a higher level. He also spoke on Digi FM about the qualities that a good politician should have.
"Maybe in the future it will be the right time for me, who knows ... Maybe in four or eight years it will be the right time to make a move in politics. I'm not saying no to this involvement. I think a politician has to be honest. We need to listen more to those below and not to those above. We need to know what every man in the country wants. Our country is not only Cluj, Brașov, Timișoara or Bucharest", said the former prince.

Interesting that Nicholas is not ruling out a career or at least becoming more involved in politics. "Maybe in the future it will be the right time for me, who knows ... Maybe in four or eight years it will be the right time to make a move in politics."

Nicolae has since 2018 been an ambassador of Petru & Claymoor shoes
"A Gentleman’s choice!
At Petru & Claymoor I found a high quality product and with Mircea and Petru I chose a “Museum Calf” leather in “Marble Brown” color, a color that changes after the light.
I always support Romanian brands and I encourage you to do the same!"

Constantin Brâncuși (February 19, 1876 – March 16, 1957) was a Romanian sculptor, painter and photographer.
Nicolae yesterday at Muzeul National al Satului "Dimitrie Gusti", an open-air ethnographic museum located in the King Mihai I Park in Bucharest.
Brancusi is celebrated every day, through the creations of contemporary brands, brands that the Romanian Excellence in Art, Culture and Heritage project talks about.
"Traditions are our connection to the past, present and future, they are something extremely important that we must pass on to our children. Nicolae al Romaniei"

Nicolae at his Instagram with a new hat
"I am still looking for Romanian products that we can be proud of. I recently met two brothers with a great passion for handmade hats. Passion turned into a business that deserves our attention. Thanks to Iorgoni for the hat we worked on together."
