I think that all of Serbian Royal Family are Orthodox

the first wife of Alexander, María de la Gloria de Orleans-Braganza, became to the Orthodox Church like queen Queen Sofia but conversely, they were married in the Orthodox rite in Spain . I had the photos of this wedding with the patriarch and the crowns on their heads, I remember it..I have found it. ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting She was beautiful woman

Both Prince Alexander and his wife are very involved (not politically) in the Serbian State and are prime examples of hard working royals.
I actually wonder what are the actual chances for the restoration of the monarchy in any Balkan State.

It will help him to have the British Royal Family on his side.
Elizabeth is his godmother.

I admire the fact that they both work so hard. The Princess Katherine is always there front and center doing all she can for the Serbian people.
If this was the late 1800 early 1900 perhaps the British Royal family would have an interest in helping them, however these days besides a Happy Birthday Godson card, I doubt they can expect much more from them..

Well,British royals of today have different function than 100 years ago,so I doubt they could help today in that way(restoration)...

After WW II it was Churchill who decided if Yugoslavia is going to be a monarchy or not...

There was also a proposition from Stalin to restore the monarchy,but under one condition:that Prince Tomislav(brother of King Peter II) succeeds as monarch which he,of course,declined...that would also mean that Yugoslavia would be under Iron courtain!

Stalin proposed a Yugoslavian Monarchy behind the Iron curtain? Very interesting, I never heard of this before..Do you have any books to refer me? I'd love to read more about it.

Well,he didn't exatly propose to be a monarchy,but if Yugoslavia was to stay a monarchy he wanted Tomislav to be the King...

Destiny of Yugoslavia(if it was to be a monarchy or not) officially was dependant on British,Russian and American negotions...but,in fact it was dependant on Churchill!

After Tito/Subasic treaty Chuchill tried to "wash his hands" in front of King Peter II and said:"You know I don't like Tito...but he has the power and we have to count on that fact."

Well,the vast majority of people don't see them in that way,so I doubt they would have much chance,although she(Katherine) tries very hard!

Restoration is a nice idea for Serbia, but Europe seems to be in the midst of a growing crisis about the state of the EU, and the financial difficulties are not getting any better. A restoration proposal might just be laughed at by the the major powers what with all the bigger problems around Europe at the moment.

On the other hand, Serbia is a proud country but not a major power in Europe and a restoration may have no major implications to the current state of things. I am no expert on these current affairs but it is an observation.

Unfortunately,no chance at all...vast majority of people just doesn't like CP Alexander and his wife and find them a bit "funny"...he gave a speach 2 days ago and got booed with people,among other things,shouted:"Learn how to speak Serbian."

^ yup, no chance at all. Those polls that suggest that people are for monarchy are deceiving, no one really cares, and financially supporting the royal family is the last thing people would want to do in this struggling economy. (or ever for that matter, anti-monarchists are being more vocal in many other solid monarchies, why would anyone be that crazy to restore it?)

Also, the fact that prince doesn't speak good Serbian doesn't help him either. I mean seriously, if the family cared about tradition they could have taught their children Serbian. Being in exile doesn't mean anything, they spoke it.

^ he's learned it in the last 10 years since they came back on the scene, he barely spoke it before. He doesn't speak it well now either (nor do his sons, who are supposed to be heirs) and that's why people see him and restoration of monarchy as a joke. I'm not saying that it's his fault, it isn't, his parents could have taught him the language but didn't. All I'm saying is that since that's the way things are there's no chance for that restoration. The language is not the only reason, people generally don't like him and his wife. Princess Jelisaveta is definitely more liked than them.

I have no idea what was being said, but he got really quite irate, verbally, didn't he? He booed back and screamed at the crowd.

I'm rather takenaback by that. Seems to me that someone's a bit of a 'hot head'.

There could be communists who are against the Royal Family and do not want the Monarchy.

IIRC he has been mostly raised by his maternal grandmother Princess Aspasia of Greece and in his youth he was quite estranged from his parents; this could explain why he didn't learn Serbian well when he was young.
