Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia on Saturday lit candles in the Royal Chapel of St. Andrew the First-Called within the Royal Complex in Belgrade. They sent their prayers to the citizens of the Republic of Serbia and the Serbs of the world, to whom they wish good health and happiness during these difficult times.

“My wife and I just lit candles in the Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace in Belgrade. We prayed for the health and happiness of all the people in Serbia, Serbs in diaspora and the whole world. My husband and I hope you are healthy and with your loved ones. Stay home and take care“, said Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine.

Crown Prince Alexander spends these weeks in isolation at the Royal Palace in Belgrade with his wife, Crown Princess Katherine. The Crown Prince Couple follows the strict measures to combat the spread of Coronavirus.

In an interview with Serbian media, Crown Prince Alexander points out that the situation with the Corona virus should be taken very seriously. His Royal Highness says: “My wife and I have been in Serbia since the epidemic began. We do not go out anywhere and follow the instructions of our Government in a disciplined manner.”

Crown Prince Alexander pointed out the great effort of his wife Crown Princess Katherine. He says: “My wife collects donations for hospitals across Serbia around the clock to better supply them with the necessary equipment to fight corona virus.”

His Royal Highness continues: “We are here with our people and together we share the same destiny. We spend our time in isolation looking in every possible way to help the nation, the state, the president, the prime minister and the medical staff, who are truly our true heroes. Serbia has been in a difficult situation many times in history but has always emerged as the winner.”
