Thats not Helene of Yugoslavia, shi is princes Jelena of Serbia, before Kingdom of Serbia

Her Christian name is Helene, not Jelena, actually. She uses Yugoslavia as do her three brothers, although in her case (and Serge) it is nominal because Alexander is their legal father, but not their natural father.

Sorry, but what are their correct titles? Prince/ss of Yugoslavia or Serbia? I think Yugoslavia doesn't exist any more

The children of the prince Alexander use of Yugoslavia socially. They have a legal surname of Karageorgevich
