Nicholas was removed from the line of succession to the Romanian throne in 2015, with reports suggesting that his removal was the scandal.
The former prince, the first child of Princess Elena of Romania and her first husband Robin Medforth-Mills, has now acknowledged that he is the father of the girl, Anna Iris, who turned three years old in February after taking a paternity test.
On Facebook, he said: & # 39; After continuing requests to perform my alleged child's paternity test, Mrs. Nicoleta Cirjan accepted this.
& # 39; The result is positive, I am the father of her child. Given the context in which this child was born, the fact that I had no relationship with the mother, I assumed legal responsibility for the child. & # 39;

& # 39; For reasons related to protecting the child's higher interests, I believe that any issue about the child's life is strictly private.
& # 39; With the desire to protect the child and avoid risks that can be provoked by media or bullying, I have decided to discontinue all comments on this topic. & # 39;
Nicholas & # 39; mother, Princess Elena, claimed that former King Michael did not want to see Nicholas when he was alive because of the behavior of his grandson who lacks some moral principles.
She added that the king & # 39; was deeply saddened that he (Nicholas) did nothing to resolve the fatherhood of his alleged child & # 39; that & # 39; reveals an unacceptable lack of responsibility & # 39 ;.
Nicoleta responded to the Nicolae Medforth-Mills statement on Facebook and said: & May 39, 2019. A day that was no longer surprising! And it came to me as a lesson of patience. And with the belief that the truth always prevails. & # 39;

KING MICHAEL I: FINAL MONARCH FROM ROMANIA
King Michael I was the last king of the country. He held the throne in 1927-1930 and again from 1940 to 1947, when Communists forced him to resign.
A descendant of the German Hohenzollern dynasty and a cousin of the British Queen Elizabeth, Michael was in his early twenties when he participated in a coup d'etat of 1944 that overthrew the fascist leader Marshal Ion Antonescu.
Romania then broke with Nazi Germany and switched to the Allied side.
Historians have said that his actions may have shortened the war and saved thousands of lives.
After his abdication, Michael worked for decades in exile as a chicken farmer and aircraft pilot, lived in Great Britain and settled in Switzerland.
After communism collapsed, politicians fearing Michael's influence blocked his first few attempted visits after decades of exile in Switzerland, Great Britain, and the United States.
He eventually returned to Romania in 1992 and regained citizenship in 1997, eight years after the collapse of communism.
The successive Romanian governments have returned castles and other property seized by the royal family when the Communists came to power.
The Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen dynasty that ruled Romania from 1866 until the reign of Michael ended in 1947 no longer enjoys special status.
Romania is a republic and the monarch no longer has constitutional powers, but Romanians associate their royal family with an elegance and dignity that they say their politicians miss.
The head of the royal house honors and takes care of the family's belongings, including castles.
With the death of King Michael, the relevance of the Romanian royal family is likely to fade, as his children have little public status.
Princess Margareta, his eldest daughter, remains the keeper of the crown.
