I read last year where Crown Prince Alexander wanted to bring back his father's (King Peter II) remains back to the Royal Mausoleum at Oplenac from Libertyville, IL . . . .
Has there been any update on that situation?
Memorial service for King Petar II:
The Royal Family of Serbia
Presentation of “A King’s Heritage – The Memoirs” by King Peter II of Yugoslavia
Today (January 30) marks the 21st Anniversary of Queen Alexandra's death. A requiem was held today at the Oplenac Church in Serbia:
21st Anniversary of HM Queen Alexandra
Queen Alexandra made several attempts at suicide.
Yes, it was a pretty awful marriage, beset by financial troubles and made worse by King Peter's despair about his country's plight and his own exile. He and Queen Alexandra were very young when they married and very much in love but it all soon descended into volatily, exacerbated by Peter's heavy drinking. He became an alcoholic.
