Well, this is partly true. Much more people in NY, London, Rome or Monte Carlo would know who he is than in Serbia...People in Serbia know only Crown Prince and Princess Elizabeth...the rest of the family members are not frequently featured in the newspapers in order to be either popular or recognized...

But, on the other hand, he never lived in Serbia and he is maybe making polite excuse why he doesn't live there...When you spend your whole life in one world, it's very hard to come to live in another world just because you are connected to it by it's historical title...nothing more.

Nonetheless, he seems the future of the monarchy as it doesn't seem likely that the hereditary prince is going to start a family any time soon.

Interesting that the titular Crown Princess's traditional "Ladies' Lunch" has invited wives of officials alongside actual female officials as "distinguished ladies". That seems very old-fashioned to me, even for a family which follows male-only succession, but perhaps it's accepted in Serbia?

And it clashes with what he says later as well:

Quote:
“A royal title is a birthright, so it follows you for your entire life,” Dimitri said. “And sometimes, it’s good to use it. I use it for my company, which is called ‘Prince Dimitri.’ It makes it easier for marketing. Certainly a few steps saved in having to work harder, let’s be honest.”
So nobody bothers him because no one knows he's a Prince and he likes it that way but he deliberately uses his title for work because it makes him stand out. At least he's honest.
And, based on the article, it seems he made the "birthright" comment to argue that he is entitled to the titles of the no longer existing monarchy ("While Yugoslavia and its monarchy no longer exist, descendants of the royal family are entitled to keep their titles, according to Dimitri."), which in his case does not make sense as an argument given that the monarchy ceased to exist long before his birth.

Last night the humanitarian organization Lifeline Hellas organized the charity show at the Pallas Theater in Athens for its 20 years of operation with the presence of CP Alexander and CP Katherine

Prince Filip with Princess Danica support the protest of the civic initiative "Let's clean Arandjelovac", which was held in front of the building of the Old Building in the park of Bukovicka Banja in Arandjelovac. The protest was initiated by a fire that engulfed the magnificent building of the Old Building, a symbol of Arandjelovac and the negligence of the authorities a few days ago, which brought it to its existing state.

Prince Filip with Princess Danica attended the event organized on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the King Peter II Karadjordjevic Elementary School in Belgrade.

To be precise, they said:

"We are happy that we can vote in our country. Of course, on Sunday April 3rd, we all vote together and exercise our civil rights. Go out to the elections and vote!"

Is this a good idea: To vote?

I mean, they were Royals once, this family - and who knows? The future is inherently unknown...

Of course: The voting is secret. So, we will never know, how the former royal family voted... so, maybe this is not a real problem.

They have the right to vote and they use it, normal thing.

And in some countries voting is obligatory.

On World Health Day, 7 April, Crown Princess Katherine expresses her support to doctors and medical staff, emphasizing the importance of wellbeing. She is also appealing to everybody to take good care of their health and to cherish it as one of the greatest treasures we have.

Well, very complicated question, but in Serbia if you don't vote and promote that, it can be seen as sending more trickier political message than when you do your duty and vote secretly for whoever you want.

It would be other thing if they were reigning royals, as the situation regarding voting might be different, but they are citizens like everyone else and they try to keep that image.

Prince Filip shared two more photos with the phrase:
"Homeland is not a limited, sharp, embodied object. Homeland is thought, Homeland is faith, and thought and faith do not die."
