No, she didn't. As far as I know she was sent to some sanatorium in England. Don't know when exactly. :-/

But, on the other hand, they are not much liked in Serbia because of many small things that later become bigger and bigger. She is the dominant figure in the family, as she "has the money" and behaves as she wants to. Almost everybody here knows that.
Understand. She is not liked here either except to some who through her finally managed to frequent the royalty. She makes also a huge mess about her charity work but result is not very obvious.
As for money it this not very clear how much she has. She comes from a very average family in Greece. Of course now with the royal connexions they make money. But she behaviours like if everything was due to her.

Well, I don't know the family from which she comes, although it was rumored here that she comes from a Greek-Jewish family whose father had some business with cotton or something like that... Just don't know exactly if this is the truth or not :-/

Btw, I heard that she was not very much liked by her stepsons who came with them to live in Serbia when Alexander returned from exile in 2001. Soon, everyone of them left because they couldn't stand being directed how to behave and what to do by her.

Yes she comes from a Greek Jewish family. They were very poor, some have been also deported in Aushwitch. They had a shop in Athens which selled fabric for clothing. Not high class, bargain pieces of fabric. They became well off, but nothing extremely luxurious. They were a huge family also, many people living from the same company.
Any way this is not the important point, but the behaviour

I agree. Very, very pushy, but not in a classy way.

Princess Eleonora of Serbia, nee Rajneri wearing tiara:

http://img.over-blog-kiwi.com/0/94/7...ia-diadema.jpg

Here is a link to her interview in Italian:

Intervista di S.A.R La Principessa Antonella d’Orléans-Bourbon a S.A.R. Eleonora Karageorgevitch, Principessa di Jugoslavia - ROYAL MONACO RIVIERA ISSN 2057-5076

Anyone who knows Italian? Does she say anything about tiara she is wearing?

It looks costume. Like one of those belts that women by to bedazzle their dress at the waists. It looks as though it's either plastic or crystals. Don't think it's real in any way shape or form.

I always thought that it might be sprigs of orange blossoms. Very traditional for wedding hairstyles, and a good choice if there's no tiara at hand. Only the arrangement looks a bit awkward to me.
