Who is Hereditary Prince Peter of Serbia?

Royal Palace Belgrade

His Royal Highness the Hereditary Prince of Serbia, Peter, was born 5 February 1980 in Chicago, Illinois, United States. He is the son of the pretender to the Serbian throne, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander. His mother is Princess Maria da Gloria of Orléans-Braganza.

Together with his father, the Crown Prince, and his step-mother, Crown Princess Katherine he travelled to Serbia after the fall of communism in 1991. He returned to the country in 2000, after the Serbian October Revolution and took up residence at the Royal Palace in Belgrade.

His Royal Highness was educated in both the United States and the United Kingdom. He has gone to several art and design schools in Europe, including the Camberwell College of Arts and the Rhode Island School of Design among others. After his studies, he has made a name for himself working in graphic design and art direction in London and New York.

He speaks English, Spanish and French and is continuing with his Serbian studies.

Prince Peter is the legitimate heir to the Serbian throne, after his father, Crown Prince Alexander. Ever since the Serbian Royal Family returned in 2000, there has been a debate in Serbia to restore a parliamentary monarchy in the nation to ensure peace and stability. Now, this is more relevant than ever. Re-establishing a monarchy takes time. Therefore, many have said that it is Prince Peter who has the biggest chance of becoming King of Serbia.

Royal Central is very pleased to have been given the honour to conduct a private and exclusive interview with Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia. The interview will take place at the Royal Palace in Belgrade, in late June. Royal Central will discuss the Crown Prince couple’s life, the return to Serbia after the fall of communism, the Crown Prince couple’s aid work for Serbian children and the possible restoration of the Serbian monarchy.

As the date nears for the interview, Royal Central will continue to follow the Serbian Royal Family more closely and report on the Royal Family’s members and what they do in today’s Serbia for our readers.
