Royal Reburial for Prince Paul and Princess Olga of Yugoslavia, October 2012
 
Not sure if this has been posted in another thread but:

From Marianne at the GREMB: There's to be a state funeral held for Prince Paul, Princess Olga and Prince Nikola on the 6th October. The remains are being transferred to Serbia from Switzerland and buried in the Royal Mauseoleum with state honours.

I can't find anything about this on the official website of the Serbian crown prince or on any other website for that matter.

Some months ago I've watched a video (I think on youtube, though I'm not totally sure) of an interview to Princess Elisabeth, the daughter of Paul and Olga; and she said that she was working to arrange the reburial of her parents in the Royal Mausoleum at Oplenac, though I don't remember at what stage the preparation for the reburial was.

Very interesting update, keep us posted please! :flowers:
Does this mean that the majority of the Serbian people are warming up to their ex-royal family? Or the reburial has nothing to do with the people?

Dierna23 09-23-2012 10:02 AM

A state funeral even? That's interesting and surprising for me.
Thanks for sharing the news, B-fan. I hope we get to see some good coverage of the event.

A state re-burial is indeed a very interesting development.
We'll see how things proceed, but I would have thought there would be some kind of announcement on Prince Alexander's official website by now.

Perhaps this reburial would open the way for a reburial for crown prince Alexander's father Peter II?

Serbian people either like the royal family or are indifferent. There are not many of those who say that they have strong reasons to be against it. The only issue is whether the taxpayers' money is being used for the reburial which I don't think is the case here.

It's a strange one, you'd think that this would be all over the official website of the Crown Prince or even have a mention on the website of the President of Serbia but so far, nothing. The dates and times etc have been posted on all kinds of blogs but there's nothing official yet. I suppose it's a case of wait and see.

Thank you all for the replies and the links! :flowers:
It amazes me that Princess Elisabeth acheived her goal in only 3 and a half years! I'll keep an eye on this thread. ;)

The 3 coffins were exhumed in Lausanne today.

According to the news every member of Karadjordjevic family will attend, but we'll just have to wait and see...

The reburial ceremony took place, as planned on October 6.
Virtually the entire Serbian Royal Family was present, including Crown Prince Alexander II, Crown Princess Katherine, Hereditary Prince Peter, Princes Philip and Alexander, and Princess Elizabeth (daughter of Prince Paul and Princess Olga). They were joined by President Tomislav Nikolic, members of Serbian Government and Parliament, representatives of Serbian Orthodox Church, as well as a number of foreign dignitaries.

Also present were Prince Nicholas of Greece, Prince Michael of Kent, Princess Barbara, Princess Linda, Prince George, Prince Michael, Prince Vladimir and Princess Brigitta, Catherine Oxenberg, and Nicholas Balfour (the latter two are Prince Paul and Princess Olga’s grandchildren though their only daughter, Princess Elizabeth).

A large gallery of pictures.
