The Prince of Wales meets Crown Prince Alexander in Serbia
I am thrilled to bits for Crown Prince Alexander who has welcomed the Prince of Wales to his home in Belgrade.
The Crown Prince is one of my favorite people, ever since we first met in the mid-1980s, when he was working as an insurance executive in Rosslyn, Virginia.
On three occasions - Alexander's 60th birthday, 25th wedding anniversary and the state funeral for King Peter II -- I have had the privilege and honor to be a guest at these events.
The Crown Prince is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He and his wife, Crown Princess Katherine, are devoted to serving Serbia and the Serbian people.
It is also nice to see the Prince of Wales visit the Royal Compound ... and I have been in those rooms, too ...
Crown Prince Alexander was born on July 17, 1945 at Claridge's Hotel, in London. He is the only son of the late King Peter II of Yugoslavia and Princess Alexandra of Greece. Alexander is the godson of Queen Elizabeth II, whose father, King George VI, was the godfather of Alexander's father, Peter.
It seems that the Duchess of Cornwall was carrying out another engagement in Belgrade, and did not accompany Charles for this event ... perhaps the Crown Prince and Crown Princess and the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall can have a private dinner tonight ... lots of nice restaurants in the Skadarlija area of Belgrade.
