Europe represents the key to a brighter future for Serbia, attracting foreign investment, improving living standards and presenting fresh opportunities for young people. That is according the Crown Prince Alexander, who stands alongside president Boris Tadic in his public support for Serbia’s advance down the road to the EU.
Republika Srpska Is A ‘Debatable’ State That Needs To Be Sorted Out, Says Serbia’s Heir To The Karađorđević Throne
The Karađorđević heir to the kings of all Serbs has declared Republika Srpska as a ‘debatable’ state that needs to be sorted out. In an interview with W!LD RooSTeR when he spoke optimistically about Serbia’s future ambitions as a member of the European Union, Crown Prince Alexander II said discussions are needed with Serbia’s partners to determine the stability and future of the Bosnian-Serb political entity.
“It is a state that is debatable, a protectorate of the European Union,’ he said. “One really wonders about them, and we have to sort that out. Maybe being a member of the European Union we can put our view in on how the shape should take place with our partners. Our partners are now going to be Croatia and others members of the European Union.”
Despite the obvious trappings of privilege and heritage, Serbia’s historic Karađorđević family is not unlike many others who have to find their way in a modern world that dictates that children travel, study and marry beyond their usual borders. In that way, at least, Serbia’s Royal Family is like many others, with footholds in Belgrade, Britain and the United States.
While his son’s remain unmarried, Crown Prince Alexander II has seen them travel widely to establish successful lives and businesses. Eldest son Prince Peter lives and works as a graphic designer in Chicago, while Prince Philip works in the London financial world and his twin brother Alexander is in internet publishing in California.
“We are a very close family and the boys come here to the Palace often,’ he said. “But, with such a big family, it falls on me to ensure that the family remains together.”
