BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — Royal wedding fever is catching on in Romania. Though not for that royal wedding.

Nicholas Medforth-Mills, the only grandson of the late King Michael, confirmed Tuesday in an interview with Digi 24 TV he would marry aviation public relations consultant Alina-Maria Binder after dating for more than two years.

The couple revealed that Medforth-Mills proposed to Binder on a weekend break to Cornwall in southwest England. He wrote "I love you. Marry me" in the sand. He later gave her a diamond and sapphire engagement ring.

The wedding will take place on Sept. 30 in an Orthodox church in Sinaia, the town where Michael was born.

Medforth-Mills, 33, was disinherited by Michael in 2015 following reports he fathered a child outside of wedlock. He reconciled with the royal house before Michael's funeral last year. The communists forced Michael to abdicate in 1947.

Binder said she admired the way he quietly dealt with the disgrace.

Medforth-Mills is one of the most popular members of the Romanian royals, because of his down-to-earth manner and love of cycling.

Binder, 30, first appeared alongside Medforth-Mills at Michael's funeral.
