ANNIVERSARY OF HM KING PETER II BIRTHDAY
Belgrade 6 September 2006 - On this very day 83 years
Majesty King Peter II was born in Belgrade. The father of HRH Crown
Prince Alexander II became King when his was eleven, after the assassination
of HM King Alexander I in France in 1934. When Nazi forces attacked
Yugoslavia in 1941, King Peter II was forced to leave the country.
“The life of my father was a hard one. After the World
War II the Monarchy was illegally abolished by the communist regime and my
father was forced to continue his life in exile. Many times my family was
wrongly blamed by communists for everything that went wrong in post-war
Yugoslavia, and that gave much pain to my father.
Despite the lies from the Tito’s Government, King Peter
II who was illegally deposed never abdicated. My father had a lot of love
for our people in his heart. That is why my aim is to return my father’s
remains to homeland, where they should be, and I hope that he will soon find
his peace in the St. George Mausoleum at Oplenac”, stated HRH Crown Prince
Alexander II on this occasion.
