a son for Prince Serge of Yugoslavia
HRH Prince Serge Wladimir Emanuel Marie of Yugoslavia has become a father for the first time at age 54. He will celebrate his 55th birthday on March 12.
Christiane Barrouta Galeotti, 34, gave birth to Umberto Emmanuel Dimitri Karageorgevich, in Monaco on February 3.
Prince Serge is the son of Princess Maria Pia of Savoy and the late Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia. He has a twin sister, Princess Helene, and two older brothers, Prince Dimitri and Prince Michael.
In November 1985, Prince Serge married Sophie de Toledo. This marriage was dissolved by divorce eleven months later. After a longterm relationship with Vanessa von Zittwitz, Prince Serge married Italian lawyer Eleonora Ragneri in a civil ceremony in Monaco.
According to Princess Eleonora's Instagram account, she and her husband were in Tokyo, Japan, in February and attended an event at Tokyo's Ritz-Carlton on February 17, 2 weeks after the birth of Umberto. She included a photo of herself and Prince Serge all dressed up with somewhere to go.
I am certainly not going to speculate on the state of their marriage. The Prince and Princess were photographed in Monaco on May 28. They are close friends of Prince Albert and were guests at his enthronement ceremony.
Christiane Barrouta Galeotti is a self-taught calligrapher based in Cap d'Ail, France, only a few minutes from the Monagesque border.
