Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth-Mills and his wife, Alina, joined Her Majesty Margareta, Custodian of the Crown, Prince Radu and Princess Marie, at a religious service marking the 40th day since the death of King Michael.
The Romanian Orthodox service was shown on Romanian television. Many witnessed the "first sign of peace" between Nicholas and his aunt, Margareta, who warmly embraced her nephew and kissed him on his cheek.
Princess Marie was also seen offering a hug to Nicholas, whose wife, Alina, curtseyed to Margareta as she moved toward Nicholas.
In the presence of clergy, Nicholas said that he plans to move back to Romania in the spring, but must solve work issues in England before he can return to Romania. He said he would like to establish his home in Curtea de Arges. He said he was fond of the city and its people and plans on settling down in the historic town.
