Nicolae and Alina Maria are spending the Independende Day/King's Day as honorary guests in Pecica.

Former Prince Nicolae says that his relations with royal family members are "not the best" and even if he does not communicate with them, he will invite them to the wedding
The King's Day was marked in the town of Pecica by the "King Mihai's Friends" Association, with the support of the City Hall and the Local Council, and former Prince Nicolae, along with his wife Alina. The couple made a tour of several city attractions, such as schools, and a bakery. The two also visited the "King's Oak", planted on the day king Mihai was born.
- It's a very important day for us, for the country, I'm glad I came to Pecica, where the King's Oak is. It is a miracle that this tree is still alive, it reminds us of my grandfather, King Mihai, Nicolae said.
On Thursday evening there will also be an old music show by the Euterpe Quartet of the Arad State Philharmonic and soprano Nicoleta Brola, attended by monarchists and former prince Nicolae, alongside his wife Alina.
In the official program of events, Nicolae is attributed to his former title, showing that his "Royal Highness Prince Nicolae of Romania" will be present in Pecica.
Asked by journalists if his relationship with royal family members has improved, the former prince said he does not have a good communication with his relatives.
- Relationships are not the best, but I'm still trying to open up some communication with my family, Nicolae said.
He acknowledged that since the death of his grandfather he has not spoken to her Majesty Margareta, the custodian of the Romanian Crown.
- I have talked to my mother a few times and I have a very good relationship with my sister, Nicolae said.
Asked by journalists about his wedding, Nicolae said he would send an invitation to every member of the royal family.
- I hope they will come, said the former prince, who did not want to reveal other names on the guest list, saying he would probably do so next week. He said, however, that he has guests from all over Europe, but also from the US and Australia.

Article about Nicolae and Alina Maria in Pecica on Thursday.
They were open, friendly and smiling - Prince Nicolae of Romania, the grandson of King Mihai I and his wife, Alina Binder, throughout the visit to Pecica.
Even though their plane landed early in the morning in Timisoara, the princely couple was interested in the town and people.
The first stop was at Bakery Doris Prod Com, where they were accompanied by deputy mayor Miodrag Stanoiov, local councilor Vasile Chifor, organizer of the event and former senator Constantin Trag Igaş.
After learning the history of Pitei of Pecica (bread) and tasting it, the prince and his wife made a tour at the Liceului Teoretic "Gheorghe Lazăr". The guests entered several classrooms, class V students and music teacher Alexandra Zaharia sang several patriotic songs.
"Alina is involved in a computer science project for girls. I wish you success" - said Nicolae of Romania to the students of the 12th grade in the computer lab.
They met mayor Petru Antal at the Town Hall, with whom they discussed the city, history and also the future of the monarchy in Romania. Archaeologist Marius Oprea, Vice-President of the the Movement for Kingdom and Crown, took also part at the discussion.
Hosts and guests walked to King Mihai's Square, accompanied by a group of monarchists from Timisoara and Cluj-Napoca.
"The city has grown a lot since I was here the last time, and the oak seems to have grown up", said Prince Nicolae, after which he posed for photos with everyone who wanted.
Asked by journalists, he said the religious wedding is in preparation and soon details will be announced. "We will have guests from all over Europe, from the US and Australia. I invited all family members, I hope they will come".
If at his last visit he preferred to answer in English, Prince Nicolae now speaks very good Romanian.
They visited also the Roman Catholic Church and the Holy Trinity Park, with the monument dedicated to the victims of communism.
The last stop was at the Bivoli Farm, whose location and facilities were praised by the princely couple. Nicolae of Romania also tried the bicycle that offers the virtual tour of the "Lunca Mureşului" Natura Park on the screen.
Delighted and tired after the tour, Prince Nicolae and his wife, Alina Binder, went to meet people of Pecica in the evening at the House of Culture "Doru Ioan Petescu".

The special guest of the evening, Prince Nicolae of Romania, climbed the stage with the applauses of the audience. Mayor Petru Antal handed over the "Key of the City", the prince being visibly excited by the reception and gesture. "Thank you for the warmth with which I was welcomed to Pecica. I am proud of what the family has done for Romania, and we must work for a more united Romania", said Prince Nicolae.

Photos from the visit to Liceul Teoretic "Gheorghe Lazăr" School in Pecica
The Independence Day of Romania brought this year exceptional guests in our high school
Visiting Pecica, his Royal Highness Prince Nicolae of Romania, accompanied by his wife Alina, made a stop at the "Gheorghe Lazăr" High School.
Welcomed with bread and salt, our school directors led our high-class guests through a few classes where our students had the opportunity to meet them. The youngsters, the 5th grade, who were in the Music Education class, welcomed them by singing "Bună ziua" after which they performed the Royal Hymn.
The guests were, in turn, excited by the meeting with our children and left the school with the hope of a new visit in the future.
We can only hope that this will happen as soon as possible.

I met two honest and very friendly people who hope to have an important role in the future of our country.

I'm no expert in romanian either, but Google translation is very good.
Yes, the religious ceremony will be then in Biserica Sfântul Ilie in Sinaia. The religious ceremony will be followed by a reception which will be attended by guests from Romania and abroad. More details will be provided closer to the event.

Another nice photo of Nicolae and Alina at the religious ceremony announcement in Nicolae's Instagram.

Biserica Sfântul Ilie is close to Peleș Castle.

Lovely photos of Alina and Nicolae ahead of the religious wedding. I find it unusual that such photos are released in between the civil and religious wedding when they feel more like engagement photos. They look very happy together.

Romania's Popular, Disinherited Prince Announces Wedding __ Balkan Insight
Date & place of ex-prince Nicolae of Romania’s wedding revealed - Romania Insider

Some photos of their run for Team Hospice
From this album at Facebook of Team Hospice
#TeamHOSPICE la Semimaratonul 2018 (Album 1) _ Facebook

Nicolae and Alina Maria posted in their Facebooks a link to their new interview
"Our first interview together about our engagement and wedding"

New information behind the scenes from the wedding of the year. The former prince Nicolae and Alina Binder have revealed everything
Nicolae Medforth Mills spoke for the first time about the wedding announced for this autumn with Alina-Maria Binder. There will be invited guests from 13 countries, but also, he hopes, members of royal families of Romania. The two told how the moment of marriage proposal was, and how she would look at the bridal gown.
Nicolae confessed that he chose Sinaia as a wedding venue because it is a city where both he and Alina feel at home. He spoke about the importance of the area for the royal family, but also about the memories he has in Sinaia. Here will come in the autumn the representatives of the royal houses of Europe and, if they will accept the invitation, members of the royal family of Romania.
The religious ceremony and the actual wedding would be organized according to the traditional Romanian model, say future husband. There will still be some minor changes for the guests, coming from different cultural environments, to feel good.
The love story between Nicholas and Alina began two years before the marriage proposal. And the latter followed the classic pattern: requesting the hand from the parents and then surprise her with the ring. The climax took place in Cornwall, UK, where Nicholas decided to organize a mysterious trip to surprise his girlfriend.
Informații noi din culisele nunții anului. Fostul principe Nicolae și Alina Binder au dezvăluit totul

The couple revealed that Medforth-Mills proposed to Binder on a weekend break to Cornwall in southwest England. He wrote "I love you. Marry me" in the sand. He later gave her a diamond and sapphire engagement ring.
Medforth-Mills, 33, was disinherited by Michael in 2015 following reports he fathered a child outside of wedlock. He reconciled with the royal house before Michael's funeral last year. The communists forced Michael to abdicate in 1947.
Binder said she admired the way he quietly dealt with the disgrace.
Medforth-Mills is one of the most popular members of the Romanian royals, because of his down-to-earth manner and love of cycling.

In September, the city of Sinaia will turn into a fairytale land with princes, princesses, beautiful dresses, elegant world. Prince Nicolae of Romania and his fiancé Alina Binder will unite their destinies in the little royal town at the foot of the mountains.
For the first time the two talked about how the wedding will look, whom they invited, but also how Nicolae gave her the engagement ring and how Alina perceived the first meeting with the Prince's family.
The nephew of King Mihai and his fiancé Alina will get married in Biserica Sfântul Ilie in Sinaia. "Then we will spend the party at Casino Sinaia. We want to use this opportunity to show what Romania has, because many guests have never been here. There are many guests, from Europe, Australia, USA, from 13 countries in total. Of course, every member of my family will also receive an invitation to the wedding. I hope they will come."
Asked why he chose Sinaia for his wedding, Nicolae said that this city is very close to his family. "Here, we feel very well like at home. My family has left a mark on this city. I am connected to this city because Carol I came and built here the Peleş-Pelişor Castles and my family helped to develop the city. "
As for the bridal dress, Alina said she would like "to find some traditional, subtle details. I would like to have a classic line and feel relaxed in it, that it represents me. I would like it to be created by a Romanian designer."
Alina and Nicolae have been a couple about three years, and in July they will celebrate the first anniversary of their engagement.
"Our relationship has evolved. I've come to a point in my life when I felt ready to take the next step. Of course, I started with Alina's parents. I sat down with them and asked for Alina's hand. They said yes. It was the biggest challenge."
Alina says that marriage proposal "was a total surprise. I was in the office when he called me: "Why don't we go somewhere after you finish the job?" I did not know where we were going. It was incredible when I arrived in Cornwall, a special place for both, which he showed me at the very beginning when we moved to England".
Nicolae adds: "In the morning, I went to the beach, with a bottle of champagne. And as Alina watched the sunrise, I wrote on the sand, "I love you! Marry me!", I went down on my knees and gave her the ring."
And the story of the engagement ring is just as beautiful: "The ring is tied to earrings. When Alina turned 29, I gave her earrings. When I was in Sri Lanka, I bought the stones, then I made the earrings. When I chose the ring, I wanted to have a stone like at the earrings, a sapphire. And I made a ring with three stones: two diamonds and a sapphire", Nicolae confessed.
About the encounter with the Alina's family, he confessed that he had some emotions: "But I was welcomed with open arms, very friendly, relaxed. From the first day we got along well. Alina is very lucky to have a very united family."
Alina met Nicolae's family before she got married. "It was exciting, but I can't say I have spent a lot of time with his family."
The two of them say that when they saw for the first time, they understood each other perfectly, having a common passion.
"I like that he is spontaneous, courageous, has traveled to distant, wild areas, gave me the impression that he can handle it in any circumstances, he is a modest man, not at all arrogant. I was very impressed by the fact that in 2015, after his title was withdrawn, he chose to suffer in silence, not to make a case of his situation."
Nicolae tells that Alina is "a courageous person, who likes sport, smart, beautiful. We understood each other without much effort. That was important to me. Alina became my rock, after what happened in 2015 with the withdrawal of the prince title".
