So, Nicholas married either in the last few days of his grandfather's life or just after he passed away so he could take Alina with him to the funeral? While I understand thst he wanted her with him, the timing seems inappropriate.

Did they share the exact wedding date?

And why is he still calling her Alina-Maria Binder? Foes that mean that she doesn't (intend to) share(s) his surname (and titles he most likely is after)?

The date if the civil marriage was not known. She will have his Surname too.
 
So, if she is to use his surname, why does her own husband still call her by her maiden name after they got married? That doesn't add up.
 
Firstly, it is the author of the article who refers to her by her maiden name. Nicholas simply calls her by her first name.

Some women do not take their husband's surname. Another possibility is that she wishes to wait until after the religious wedding to take his surname. She was named by the Royal House on the funeral guest list as "doamna Nicolae de Roumanie Medforth-Mills."

Therefore, it may be that she will only use his name on social occasions, and retain her maiden name while in professional life. Time will tell.

Also, many women in Europe do not take their husband's name.
 
I was referring to this message that referenced Nicholas's own facebook (so it was him not someone else using 'Binder' as her surname) not to an article. However, it seems that he is using her maiden name because that is the name she uses on Facebook...

Nicholas at his Facebook today
"Today, 26 January, the most important person in my life, Alina-Maria Binder, reaches the age of 30 years. I wish her much health, smiles every day, and desires fulfilled..."

I don't think Europe can be generalized in this respect as naming traditions are compketely different amog countries.

Nonetheless, I am aware of women taking different decisions, so I was mainly surprised about the inconsistencies. Nicholas using her maiden name while people insist that she will be sharing his surname. If so, the moment to start doing so would be the civil marriage.

At least he uses also his spouse maiden name and not invent titles or surnames.

You mean like yourself referring to him as 'Prince Nicholas' for years on these forums, after the King decreed it so? Selective reasoning and fleeting allegiances is so very passé, don't you think?

People referring to others incorrectly when writing articles or speaking is nothing new, it happens in every monarchy and probably even more so in former monarchies, where references are usually made based on your own preference and level of respect, not what is custom and recognized protocol. I'm quite sure that as a bride of someone belonging to a former royal family fighting for recognition, she will take her husbands surname, but it might be a matter of waiting for the religious ceremony or the process or reconciliation within the Royal Family etc.

For now, they're Nicholas and Alina to many, although I must say, most of my friends use the titular principele Nicolae, and will probably continue to do so, if he keeps up his work and continues to improve his position in Romania. One can only hope that he reconciles with the Royal Family and that he is recognized as the heir following his aunts generation, so the family is renewed and comes together for a common purpose and in a positive way.
 
The use of Alina-Maria Binder in Nicholas's FaceBook post was because it was a link to her account - that is the name used there.

That's what I found out later that same day as well, see my second last post.
 
Beautiful pictures of a beautiful couple!
 
Wow! Wonderful photos! I guess its David Niviere who did all these gorgeous photos!
 
Is Alina Maria wearing a regional costume in some of them?
 
Her regional costume is really lovely.:flowers:

They were married in a civil ceremony in October 2017, not December. Exact date not released but anyone can apply for the marriage certificate
 
Nicholas and Alina de Roumanie Medforth Mills attended the special Concert in memory of the late King at Saint Joseph Roman -Catholic Cathedral this evening. The program included " Funeral Sentences" by Henry Purcell.
 
It was so touching to see how many people wanted to greet Nicholas (" the Prince of the people") and Alina de Roumanie Medforth Mills at the end of the concert in memory of the late King at Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Cathedral of Bucharest few days ago. Especially the many young people wanted to greet the young couple and to have photos. What really matters is only the love of the people.
 
Nicholas and Alina de Roumanie Medforth Mills gave an interview to " Point de Vue" speaking about the funeral of the late Royal King, the difficult relationship with the eldest daughter of the late Sovereign and their marriage next September and future projects in Romania. The photos are beautiful.

We have already seen some of the photos, they are part of the photoshoot with David Nivière published some weeks ago and the link is in this thread.

They are a very attractive young couple. I don't know the ins and outs of what's gone on but it seems utterly incomprehensible to me that the Romanian royal family should do anything other than take advantage of the fact they are young, beautiful and dynamic, particularly when a viable alternative to Nicholas basically does not exist. Utter madness. The phrase cutting your nose off to spite your face comes to mind.

The majority of people think exactly like you.
