PRINCE PHILIP OF SERBIA MARRIES AN ARTIST IN BELGRADE

Belgrade / Prince Philip of Serbia, Aleksandar Karadjordjevic’s son, who is pretender to the Serbian throne, has been married to the Serbian artist Danica Marinkovicon in Belgrade on Saturday.

Karadjordjevic Palace reported in a statement that the wedding was held at the Orthodox cathedral “Saborna crkva” in Belgrade, in a ceremony officiated by Serbian Patriarch Irinej.

According to the statement from the Serbian Royal House, the guests included Queen Sofia of Spain, cousin of Alexandra of Greece who is mother of Aleksandar Karadjordjevic’s mother.

In addition, Princess of Sweden Victoria, heir to the Swedish throne, and Princess Maria da Gloria of Orleans and Braganca, the mother of the bridegroom, attended the wedding in Belgrade.

Grandson of Peter II

After the wedding ceremony, a dinner was held at the Karadjordjevic palace in Belgrade.

Philip, 35 years old and grandson of the last king of Yugoslavia, Peter II (1923-1970), was born in the United States in the first marriage of Aleksandar Karadjordjevic, and currently he lives in London.

His wife, Danica Marinkovic, 31, is the daughter of the Serbian painter Milan Cile Marinkovic, and has lived in Paris since his childhood.

The monarchy was abolished in 1945 in Yugoslavia when establishing the communist regime.

The communist regime banned members of the Serbian royal family from returning to the country, which they had abandoned at the beginning of World War II after the Nazi occupation.

In 2001, with Yugoslavia dismembered in the conflicts of the previous decade, the Serbian authorities abolished that provision and returned citizenship to the Karadjordjevic, who also regained the right to reside in their palaces.

The only son of King Peter II, Alexander, born in London in 1945, settled in 2001 in the palace of his ancestors in Belgrade. (October 9, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
