hi the royal family of montenegro - petrovic- njegos live in Paris. the republics of serbia and montenegro are still united in a federal state. the royal family of yugoslavia(serbia) live in the palace in belgrade though they are not (as yet) officially restored they perform various `royal duties` and act in a ceremonial capacity. i hope to post pictures and info on the montenegro royal family in a few weeks time.
There is a woman who calls herself Princess Milena Petrovic-Njegoš of Montenegro who lives in Southern California. She is the daughter of "Prince" Milo Petrovic-Njegoš, who I understand was a distant cousin of the Royal Family and not entitled to call himself "Prince" of anything. She wrote a book about her father several years ago, which I was told wasn't a very good read.

O, well. I was calling Princess Katherine "Katarina" when I posted photos of the couple. I was just following IBL. My fault. Here are Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine at the royal wedding in Denmark on May 14, 2004.

thank you for the lovely photo of CP Alexandar (Aleksandar) and P Katherine. :flower: Don't worry, you haven't made spelling mistake - Princess Katherine's name is spelled as well as pronounced 'Katarina' in Serbian.
Princess Jelisaveta Karadjordjevic has made final decision to candidate for the President of Serbia in the forthcoming election called for June 13. 'Initiative for nicer Serbia' suggested Princess Jelisaveta for the presidential candidate.
My goodness, what do you all think is going on in Princess Elizabeth's head? My opinion is that she's not only interested in politics but being able to use the position of president of Serbia to regain some of those art works in the Winter Palace she believes belong to her and brother. Also, of course, it would put her in a position to decide about her own rights to the Winter Palace or whatever other properties she believes go to her and her brother not to Crown Prince Alexander. This is unfortunate because it will make her dispute with Crown Prince Alexander even more public and possibly harm the cause of monarchy in Serbia-Montenegro. And that's a sad choice in my opinion. Otherwise, I like her work on behalf of Serbian charities.

Ya please continue because i don't understand if they don't have the throne back, then y are they called the royal familiy? Are they residing in yugoslavia now? Are they welcome by the government or the people?
A Royal Family is royal even though dethroned. No political revolution can deprive royals their royalty.
