Generally, they are not interested in them. When you say you are interested in royals that sounds funny and somehow strange.

Maybe, if there was someone who would be generally respectable and seen as sort of leader, monarchy cause would be more respectable.

Okay I don't get it, the opinion polls have been showing restoration support at 49.8% and those against at 44.6% in one from 2015, 39% in favor and 32% in a poll from May 2013, a 2011 poll with 64% in favor of restoration, and there was one at 26% from 2016. Do you guys just keep running into the 44.6% from 2015, the 32% from May 2013, the 36% from 2011, and the 74% from 2016 or something because talk about unlucky.

The polls are not reliable source of anything, they can be fixed very easily, depending on who is doing it and why.

The reality is that people in Serbia don't even think about restoration of monarchy for various reasons. They have much bigger problems than that, they see monarchy as something "silly" because their mind is much closer to the politics from the last 70 years and they think monarchy is not necessary at all.

Also they don't see Crown Prince as someone who would be "the leader". They make fun of him, his Serbian language sounds very funny and awkward when he is trying to talk, often making mistakes which get totally different meaning when you mix letters. This doesn't help the monarchy cause at all. Ordinary people don't think he is "Serbian enough" for them, saying that now for many years he lives in Serbia and he still hasn't properly learnt it.

He has so many gaffs while speaking Serbian language that some of them became antics.

For example, people were talking that Prince Charles better spoke few sentences in Serbian when he was on a state visit than our Crown Prince who lives here for 17 years.



You have other situation when the Prime minister of Serbia says that Crown Prince doesn't want to pay the bills for electricity and this also goes as the bad image of the "Serbian monarchy":



There is also this situation when the royal family buy plane tickets for economic class and they always demand to be transferred to business class, trying to smuggle luggage for free etc.

Okay okay, I've got an idea. Does the crown prince have any brothers or cousins that can speak the Serbian language flawlessly and are relatively popular because I think it would be popular to just hand leadership of the Serbian Royal Family to somebody that can actually make something out of it.

P.S. I still don't understand what anybody would have to gain with fake opinion polls when it comes to monarchism, I mean they should know it's an uphill battle as it is and it is rather difficult to put monarchists in parliament so why go through the trouble of making a bogus poll like the ones I talked about?

No, no male royal cousin(CP doesn't have siblings) can speak Serbian, except his female cousin Princess Elizabeth. Her late brother, Prince Alexander also spoke well Serbian, but he was living in Paris and most people didn't know him. Prince Tomislav, uncle of our CP was also speaking Serbian very well and lived at the end of his life in Serbia. And was very much loved by people.

As for popularity, except Crown Prince, nobody is even known here, I mean people haven't heard of them and 99% of Serbians don't know their dynasty in a way that there are many male Karadjordjevic dynasty members living around the world.

So, in reality, CP Alexander is the only who is interested in keeping royal image alive. When he passes, I am scared to think what will happen. Probably, most royal belongings would be sold.

Me neither, as monarchy is so very far away from reality in Serbia, almost no chance, but you still have banquets and balls in the royal palaces, CP couple are still invited to some happenings, so there is a bit of "royal" still in Serbia. It's not like they are so pushed aside. It's just that they don't know and they just don't know the people of Serbia and in what kind of way to approach them in order to gain something.
