The Press Office of His Majesty King Michael I of Romania
has been authorised to release the following statement
of HRH The Princess Helena of Romania, mother of Mr Nicholas Medforth-Mills:
I am deeply saddened and worried about the actions of my son, Nicholas. Through his behaviour, in the last days, Nicholas breached the intimacy, suffering, and dignity of my father, King Michael.
I have told Nicholas, in the past, about the fact that the King does not wish to see him because of his lack of moral principles. Even the King himself, receiving the news of my son's marriage, told Nicholas in a private letter on August 4, 2017, that he is deeply saddened that Nicholas had done nothing to clarify the paternity of his alleged child, a girl of nearly two years old. This shows an unacceptable lack of responsibility.
During my most recent visit to Aubonne last August, my father personally confirmed his decision not to receive Nicholas, something my son knows. King Michael has clarified several times, verbally and in in writing, that the reason for his decision to withdraw the title from Nicholas is that my son does not have the necessary qualities to assume a position in the Royal House of Romania.
Nicholas’ actions of the last two days are profoundly wrong morally and grave mistakes. My son has shown contempt for Romania, her people and the principles of the Royal House. As a mother, this behaviour is devastating.
