I couldn't agree more -he would have definitely been a good choice on behalf of the family.

I believe the poster meant Princess Elizabeth, daughter of the late Prince Paul and the late Princess Olga of Yugoslavia.

Ahh, yes! Princess Elizabeth! I found it strange too, but I'm not sure and have not read anything about why she was not there.

The US Ambassador was there. I was introduced to Ambassador Kirby at the dinner the night before the funeral. Incidentally, the US embassy is literally next to the royal compound. I talked to CP Alexander at the luncheon on Saturday (I was at his table), and I asked about the British - and was told why - and there is a reason for it -- no snub to Alexander personally. The invitations were sent to the Allied nations. This was an official state funeral, paid for by the Serbian government.
Peter died in the USA following a failed liver transplant. He could not be buried in Yugoslavia at the time.

There are unresolved issues that go back to the 1990s between the UK and Yugoslavia/Serbia.

This was a reburial of several people who died at different times several years ago.

Would anyone expect people to attend the reburial of Richard III? (I know centuries have past since he died.)

Who attended the reburial of the Romanov family?

Peter II selected his final resting place only to have his son move him. It might stir some unneeded controversy to any American representative who might have attended.

Princess Elizabeth was most certainly at all of the events. I spoke to her numerous times and took plenty of photos. Her branch of the family was well represented. Michel (one of the elder twins), Prince Serge and his wife, Prince Dushan (who repped his father, Alexander), as well as Vladimir, Dimitri, Lavinia, Katarina, Nicholas, George and Michael

There are political reasons why a member of the British royal family cannot attend these events in Serbia. Alexander is very close to his British cousins, and the Queen played a major role in getting Queen Marie back home.

The closeness is between the two families is what brought up my question of their absence. I was unaware that there was huge political reasonings behind why they could not attend.


Btw, thank you for posting your experience at the funeral for others to read.

Because Philipp and Isabelle are very close friends of the Crown Prince and Crown Princess ... they also attended the 60th birthday celebrations in 2004 and the 25th wedding celebrations in 2010 ... as was I. aria-olivia;1557252]Why were the Princes of Liechtenstein there ?[/QUOTE]

thank you. It was my third trip to Serbia, and a great honor to have been considered one of the VIP guests.

The only requirement these days to marry a Habsburg and for him to keep his title and for the woman to get the title of Archduchess is to be of Christian faith. A while ago there was even talk about Archduke Karl upgrading every morganatic member of the family since the end of the Empire to become Archduke/Archduchess. Don't know if he went through with it though.

I know there was a story about it,but didn't know if this actually happened officially,when and does it count retroactively or just pro futuro for every wedding?

I don't if the Serbian Royal family web-site listed the guests and how did they do it regarding their titles...
