First statements of Prince Nicolae after removal from the line of succession

After King Mihai withdrew his title as Prince of Romania and removed him from the line of succession to the defunct Romanian throne, Prince Nicolae sent a message on Tuesday, saying he “regretfully” respects his grandfather’s decision.

“(…) I assume this decision, it comes following a period when I have reflected upon the future of the country and of our House, as well as upon the role that I can play for their growth. The position of prince of Romania and the presence in the line of succession are enforcing a way of conducting my life that I find difficult to accept. That’s why, I regretfully consider that the decision of HM the King is welcome to me. I will search in the future to serve my ideals and principles in a different way,” reads a press release of Nicolae issued by the Royal House.

He also thanked all those who stood by him. “In my new capacities, I will look to dedicate myself to environmental, youth and charitable actions, about which I found so many things during my stay in Romania. I also want to thank the central and local public authorities for their openness granted to support joint projects and especially to my family for their love and understanding (…) I hope God will further protect the nation and the Romanian Crown,” the press release concludes.
