Serbian Monarchy

I am curious what happened to the Monarchy after WWII? Are their descendents patriotic? Is there any chance the Monarchy will be restored?

They came back from England to Serbia six years ago and with the G-d's help they will stay there forever. Some nasty communists are against them but we do not care a lot about what they say.

Biography of
HRH Crown Prince Alexander II


In April 1941 after Germany attacked and occupied Yugoslavia the country's young King Peter II left in advance of the invading German forces for Athens with the Yugoslav government. The King and his compatriots were determined not to surrender to the invaders in the best tradition of the founder of the Dynasty, Karadjordje ("Black George") Petrovic who led the heroic first uprising of the Serbs against the Ottoman Empire in 1804. From Athens HM King Peter and his government went to Jerusalem and then Cairo. Finally King Peter II established the government in exile in London.

King Peter II married Princess Alexandra of Greece the daughter of HM King Alexander of the Hellenes and Aspasia Manos in London in 1944. On 17 July 1945 while living in Claridge’s Hotel Queen Alexandra gave birth to a son - HRH Crown Prince Alexander II of Yugoslavia.

Crown Prince Alexander, the heir to the throne, was born on Yugoslav territory as the British Government under orders of the Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill declared suite 212 in Claridge’s Hotel to be Yugoslav territory. His Holiness Patriarch Gavrilo of Serbia baptized the newborn Crown Prince in Westminster Abbey with Godparents King George VI and HRH Princess Elizabeth (now HM The Queen Elizabeth II).

After the war King Peter II was illegally prevented from returning to his country by the communist regime which had seized power in Belgrade. HM King Peter never abdicated. The King and Queen lived in exile in many lands (United States, France, Italy and England).

HRH Crown Prince Alexander II was educated at Le Rosey (Switzerland), Culver Military Academy (Indiana, USA), Gordonstoun School (Scotland) and Millfield (England). He subsequently went to the British Royal Military Academy and in 1966 was commissioned an officer in the British Army. Crown Prince Alexander served in the 16th/5th The Queen's Royal Lancers rising to the rank of Captain. His tours of duty included the Middle East, Northern Ireland, Italy and West Germany. After leaving the army in 1972, Crown Prince Alexander II, who speaks several languages, pursued a career in international business.

Although King Peter II died in 1970, the Crown Prince, as the heir to the throne decided at the time not to use the title of King - which he felt would have had little meaning in exile. He made it very clear at that time that he was not renouncing his title, or the dynastic right to the throne.

In 1991 HRH Crown Prince Alexander accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses Crown Princess Katherine, Hereditary Prince Peter, Prince Philip and Prince Alexander travelled to Belgrade where they were very enthusiastically received by hundreds of thousands of people who see the Crown Prince as the embodiment of all that is best for democracy and Constitutional Parliamentary Monarchy.

Before the 5 October 2000 revolution in Serbia, the Crown Prince visited Serbia in 1992, 1995 and 2000. The Crown Prince travelled to Montenegro and Kosovo in 1999 and Bosnia and Montenegro in 2000. The Crown Prince and his family have been living in The Royal Palace Belgrade since July 2001.

HRH Crown Prince Alexander has always been a very ardent defender of democracy and human rights. In 1989, he took a very active role in helping his people shake off the legacy of decades of communist dictatorship and the regime of Slobodan Milosevic. During the next decade the Crown Prince Alexander conducted numerous meetings and maintained constant contact with the democratic opposition and democrats throughout the former Yugoslavia. In November 1999, Crown Prince Alexander convened a large conference in Budapest for the representatives of the Democratic Opposition in Serbia. Another symposium followed in Bosnia in January 2000 and in April 2000, the Crown Prince convened a large conference of key opposition leaders in Athens. These meetings led to the successful election victory of Serbia’s democratic opposition in September of that year. Crown Prince Alexander has been a tireless contributor in the process of co-operation and unity amongst the democratic political parties to make his homeland a great democracy for all citizens regardless of political belief, religion or ethnic origin.

The Crown Prince has travelled extensively, met with numerous world leaders, politicians, parliamentarians, and world bodies, and given many interviews to the media.

In 1972, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander married Her Imperial and Royal Highness Princess Maria da Gloria de Orleans and Braganza of the Imperial Family of Brazil in Villamanrique de la Condesa Spain. They had three children. The eldest son and heir HRH Prince Peter was born in 1980 in Chicago, Illinois; and fraternal twin sons HRH Prince Philip and HRH Prince Alexander were born in 1982 in Fairfax, Virginia. The marriage ended in 1983.

In 1985, Crown Prince Alexander married Katherine Batis of Athens. HM King Constantine of the Hellenes was the best man and the witness HRH Prince Tomislav of Yugoslavia the uncle of Crown Prince Alexander. The wedding took place in the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in London.

HRH Crown Prince Alexander II enjoys skiing, sailing, water skiing, scuba diving and under-water photography. He was British Army Ski champion in 1972. His other interests include music, theatre, information technology, and current affairs.

Serbia will never surrender Kosovo to the breakaway province's ethnic Albanian majority or trade its territory for European Union or NATO membership,
