King Michael signed the "Fundamental Rules Of The Royal Family Of Romania" document on 30 December 2007, this laid out the Membership of the Royal House of Romania and the Line of Succession to the Throne and to the Headship of the Royal House of Romania. It specifically mentions Margarita being created Crown Princess of Romania, her husband Radu as His Royal Highness Radu, Prince of Romania (ad personam) and Nicholas de Roumanie Medforth-Mills, who shall assume the title, style and rank of Prince of Romania and Royal Highness on 1 April 2010, upon his 25th birthday.
On August 1, 2015, King Michael signed a document removing the title Prince of Romania and the qualification of Royal Highness from his grandson, Nicholas. Nicholas has also been removed from the line of succession. It would seem the "Fundamental Rules Of The Royal Family Of Romania" was abrogated at the same time. One can speculate as to the reason for the removal.

Although at present I can't locate a newspaper report of Prince Anton's death there was a published letter dated 4 July 1866 from the King of Prussia to his wife relating to the "Battle of Königgrätz" of 3 July 1866. In this letter he said that "Anton of Hohenzollern has four bullets in his leg; I have not heard how he is to-day. He is said to have displayed extraordinary bravery."
