Paying respects to King Peter II

The remains of HM King Peter II of Yugoslavia were transferred back to Serbia with full State Honours. Until the official reburial of His Majesty and other members of the Karadjordjevic Royal Family take place in the Family Mausoleum at Oplenac, the remains of HM King Peter will be kept at the Royal Chapel of St Andrew the First Called at the Royal Compound in Dedinje.

HRH Crown Prince Alexander and his family wishes to give the opportunity to those who wish to pay respect to HM King Peter.
The Royal Chapel will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the working week (from Monday to Friday), and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends (Saturday, Sunday) as of Thursday, 24 January.
Crown Prince Alexander is now working toward bringing the remains of his mother, Queen Alexandra, who is buried at Tatoi, his grandmother, Queen Marie (buried at Frogmore) and his uncle, Prince Andrej (buried in Illinois.)
Contrary to some reports on the web, King Peter II and Queen Alexandra were not divorced.  They lived apart, but were never divorced.
