What a wonderful thread! It was "buried" among all of the other threads in the main forum for Royalty of the World. I hope that it will get more attention now that has been moved.

Wonderful photos and information!

I can understand why people cannot relate to them as 'their people' I suppose. They have spent most of the time in London, and from what I understand, they cannot speak Serbian. I know that the boys have taken Serbian studies at university, but are they 'fluent' yet?
Yor are most welcome - thank you for posting all these interesting and informative articles and lovely photos. Much appreciated, indeed. The Prince Tomislav's speech was a special thouch and I thank you. :)

I apologize for addressing your post just now - I overlooked it, so sorry. I used to be more efficient when it comes to this thread (at least when I started it), but somehow I lost perspective and not feeling proud of it. :o

Yes, you are right - they hardly speak any Serbian. Not that they are not trying, though. Serbian is very difficult language, especially pronunciation and grammar - I guess the interesting detail is that Princess Katarina (who is Greek born) seems to be doing the best language wise. Princess Jelisaveta (Elisabeth George, as she is known in abroad), Prince Pavle's daughter is also doing better than CP Aleksandar. The Boys have been taking language classes at University, however, there was no public occasion for them to actually demonstrate their knowledge of the language yet, so it is hard to say how far in studying they really got. I haven't had an opportunity to talk personally to any of them, so I can only presume that they are doing a bit better than their father at the moment. :)

Thank you indeed, Julia - it seems to be much easier and quicker to find this thread now. Thanks to Danielle, interesting, lovely and informative material can always be found in this thread and I am very grateful for that.

Yes, Serbian seems very hard, especially the Cyrillic and Latin alphabet. I think that the boys would be doing better, mainly because it's easier to learn languages when you are younger.

Blueice, it was all your information and photos, that got me interested in the RF so I have to thank you for that. Before coming here I didn't even know they existed, and I am still learning things. :p

Oh, this is such a lovely photo - I've never seen it before. Children are always so cute with animals. I'm sorry we in Serbia missed the most of young Princes' childhood years and rarely had a chance to enjoy in photos like this one.Thanks a lot Danielle :).

That's a shame, but there aren't that many photos. I will keep looking. I have two more, and one is with an animal , but the boys are older. The other one is of Prince Peter (Petar) in 1981.

I also found this Irish interview with CP Alexander. You can hear his accent faintly.

Thanks so much (twice ) Danielle! The link is great - yes, indeed, the accent is there, barely - but there. And the photos are adorable - Petar was such a cutie as a baby...:)...The family photo on ski holiday is so rare, too - they seem to be and truly are very down to earth and without false pose most of the time. Very nice pics, indeed - thanks! :)

COMMEMORATION OF THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF AUSCHWITZ BY THE RED ARMY
Belgrade, 27 January 2005 – Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander II and Princess Katherine attended the official commemoration of 60th anniversary (27 January 1945) of the liberation of Auschwitz when the Red Army freed 7650 people from the concentration camp in the South of Poland.

This commemoration was organized in co-operation with the Association of Jewish Communities of Serbia and Montenegro and the news agency 'Tanjug'.

The commemorative academy started with reading of a letter sent by .H.E. Mr. Boris Tadic President of Serbia, in which he invited all nations to unite in the fight against hatred which affects everybody. «We have to place deep in our memory the tremendous tragedy which Jewish people had encountered and to fight for the respect of human rights».

Jafa Ben-Ari, Ambassador of Israel to Serbia and Montenegro emphasized that she, as a proud Jew, will do everything to convey the tragic legacy. «All people should have their rights, the same for everybody. All people should be respected regardless of their differences, a world should be a better place for all of us. That is my dream», emphasized Ben-Ari.

In the name of the Association of Jewish Communities guests were greeted by Mr. Alexander Gaon who stressed that the number of Jews still has not reached the one in the eve of the Second World War.

Everyone listened the tragic experience of Mrs. Eva Timar, one of the survivors of the concentration camp 'Auschwitz'.

The choir «Braca Baruh» and tambouritza orchestra performed the cultural program.

Besides Their Royal Highnesses and H.E. Jafa Ben-Ari Ambassador of Israel the commemoration in the «Sava Centre» was also attended by H.E Prvoslav Davinic Minister of Defence, Mr. Predrag Markovic Speaker of the House of the Serbian Parliament, H.E. Jocic Dragan Minister of Interior, H.E. Mr. Milan Radulovic Minister of Religion, the representatives of the diplomatic corps, Mr. Nenad Bogdanovic Belgrade City Mayor, Mr. Zeljko Zegovic the President of the New Belgrade Municipality, Mr. Darko Ribnikar director and the owner of the newspaper group «Politika», the representatives of the Serbia and Montenegro Armed Forces, the representatives of the Jewish Communities, as well as the students from the Belgrade Military Academy and the survivors from concentration camps with their family members.

Thanks a lot, Danielle - informative, interesting and quick as always! :) No, I haven't seen the family photo before - there might of being few similar to that one, but without children, just a Royal couple, I believe. Indeed, their photos are not easily to be found - I remember searching the web almost desperately when I was looking for some photos for this thread. At the same time, when least expected, some of long forgotten captions of family life and some family members, appeared from nowhere. I'll try to do some more research one of these days, hopefully with more luck.
