All the Serbians are Orthodox Christians, Alexander's sons were christened into the Orthodox church as expected. The way I view it, there's no problem with their faith. The elder son just has to master the language, then they will have made a big step towards the restoration of the monarchy.

The last 2 paragraphs are spot on. A Constitutional Parliamentary monarchy these days doesn't equal = the abolition of democracy and of the laws that protect the human rights. He's spot on, I'm with him!

Yes, they must be Orthodox.

A restoration of the monarchy is highly unlikely in Serbia. The state and its democratic institutions remain quite weak and the majority of Serbians, especially young people, couldn't care less. They need jobs and a deregulated economy, not a King.

David V 01-10-2011 09:01 PM

Serbia's problem is that it is still coming to terms with the legacy of dictatorships (like other countries in the Balkans) and, more recently, of war. It has had an effect on a whole generation of Serbs, socially, economically and mentally. The current problem in Serbia is its political class, like that of other Balkan nations, does not inspire any trust or confidence from its population. Restoring the monarchy resonates with many because of this, because a head of state who is above politics would be better able to serve the nation's interests.

Crown Prince Alexander has done it the right way. Unlike Simeon in Bulgaria, who chose to go straight into politics, Alexander has kept away from it while presenting his case.

I saw that interview on the BBC it was interesting.

There are major proponents now in Romania trying to push forward the restoration of the monarchy. It seems that support is increasing quite rapidly and even the presidential frontrunner, Crin Antonescu, is in favour of the monarchy.

What is the current status in Serbia? Is there strong will on the part of the people? Are there any official acts happening to restore the monarchy?

Just wondering which country will restore their monarchy first :)

Cory 05-04-2011 06:36 PM

Which main politions are in favour of Monarchy?

David V 05-11-2011 12:39 PM

Balkans.com Business News : 64% of Serbians polled vote for Monarchy over Republic

One poll, but it seems that many Serbs are definitely favourable to the idea of restoration.

Cory 05-11-2011 12:49 PM

Now depends a lot of the serbian politicians to fulfil the wishes of the people and abolish the republic.

monarhiero 05-15-2011 12:29 PM

Come on! Where's the political initiative? As Cory said, which politicians support the royal family?

Cory 05-15-2011 01:04 PM

In Serbia many of the members of the government seem to be royalist.

Sujit 05-19-2011 04:39 AM

I think that no one in the government have the guts to say "Hey, lets restore the monarchy"

David V 05-19-2011 11:02 AM

If Serbia can successfully restore its monarchy, of which it still has the best chances of any possible restoration, I feel it could set a precedent for other candidates for restoration.

In the last 20 years the existing post-Communist systems have failed to fulfill the aspirations of countries which are still dealing with a pretty awful legacy. If one must look back to move forward, then this is a good example. The last century hasn't been really kind for this part of Europe especially, so this would be a way of undoing the mess. Never mind that most monarchies in the last century have been unjustly deposed anyway.

CSENYC 05-22-2011 10:06 PM

That poll is huge- if no political parties are pushing for a monarchy, then the Royal Family should find a way to delicately push for it, without interfering in politics--sort of a catch-22, but surely it could be done.

Do Serbs vote for monarchy in the poll because they want a strong ruler and they think that a king would be a strong ruler? Or do they support monarchy because having a king with just ceremonial powers (like in Sweden and the UK) is a good thing?

As a non-Serb, I am not seeing how having a monarchy would enable Serbia to be more connected with Europe. If the Royal Family were Saxe-Coburgs or Bourbons or Glucksburgs then they'd have connections with other royal families and could maybe use that for some benefit, but I'm not seeing it.

jonc93 05-22-2011 10:49 PM

Actually CP Alexander is pretty well connected just as much as the Bourbons Gluckburgs and SCG. He is good friends of the British Royal Family, the Queen attended his Birthday Party in London. He's invited to major events in most European royal courts. I think he just needs to make some good marriages for his kids, but I doubt that will happen as he doesn't take them to many royal events, but Theodora Greece is very much single and good for one of his kids! ;)

Yes they are. Alexander's first wife was catholic until she married Alexander, so it's very logic that his 3 children are Orthodox...!
