Royal Profile: Elisabeta Karina de Roumanie Medforth-Mills

Elisabeta Karina de Roumanie Medforth-Mills was born 4 January 1989, the second child of Princess Elena of Romania and Dr. L. Robin Medforth-Mills {Source}. She has one older brother, Prince Nicholas of Romania {Source}.

As the Romanian Royal family is defunct, little is known about Elisabeta. Currently, according to the offcial website of the Royal family, Elisabeta is 4th in line for succession to the defunct throne after her aunt, mother and brother {Source}.

She was potentially named for Elisabeta Palace (that's the only connection I could find). Her father died when she was barely a teenager, and her mother had remarried a few years earlier.

One of her godparents was British novelist Dame Catherine Cookson, who died when Elisabeta was only 9 years old.

It is likely she grew up fairly normally, even if her grandfather is a deposed king, and her mother and aunts are princesses.

It was on her brother's 25th birthday that her grandfather granted him the title and style HRH Prince of Romania....perhaps now it's Elisabeta's turn? We shall see....
HRH Princess Elisabeta Karina of Romania...kinda got a ring to it, dontacha think?
