Why was Romeo exiled?

Then Tybalt kills Mercutio, and then Romeo kills Tybalt. Had Rosaline just said yes, then all of that could have been avoided. For his crime, Romeo is banished from Verona. The prince is the man that issued that statement, but Romeo isn't exactly around to hear the sentencing, because he has already fled the city.

Who is Romeo exiled by?

After listening to the Capulets and Montagues bicker about whether or not Romeo should be punished for killing Tybalt in a duel, the Prince decides that Romeo should be "exile[d]" instead of put to death (ostensibly because Tybalt killed Mercutio before Romeo killed Tybalt).
