Well, Crown Princess controls the money and he depends on her and that's why he is accepting this. He loves his sons, as I think he also loves his stepchildren, but he is just powerless against her and doesn't have the strength nor the will to go deep into these things and he let's her do what she wants. It's obviously easier for him.
There was an idea and at one point all his sons were summoned to live in Belgrade. But, they couldn't stand the relationship with their stepmother and it was easier for them to leave the country than to argue, so they have chosen to step out of the way.
Don't know anything in particular about Prince Peter, except that he lives in London.
I think that people around Crown Prince who are for the monarchy are now supporting Prince Filip (some secretly, some openly) and putting him into the limelight, like preparing him for "something", as he is the only one of Alexander's sons who is living in Serbia, is married to a Serbian girl and has a son, which is here very important for the future of the monarchy...which is perfect for the public image as the Serbian royals are often described as being "not Serbian enough" or at least not trying to be...Like, for example, that they speak the language very badly, despite the fact that they returned to the country 20 years ago.
Only Princess Elizabeth learned the language properly and decently, despite the fact that she also didn't speak a word of it at the beginning. She is very popular among people and most recognizable as she is a very grand lady with very down to earth attitude at the same time. This kind of popularity was the reason for the dislike between the Crown Princess and Princess Elizabeth. Wherever she goes, "Elizabeth steals the show" and Catherine doesn't stand this.
That's why she is desperately trying to put her family in front and trying to make them more recognizable, hoping for a miracle that just won't happen, as after all the scandals and rumors about royal family Serbia just doesn't care about them. They are just not interested in royalty in general.
