Crown Prince Alexander II is the last crown prince of the former Kingdom of Yugoslavia and the head of the House of Karadjordjevic of Serbia. His father, King Peter II of Yugoslavia, was forced to leave the country after the Nazi occupation in 1941. Crown Prince Alexander was born in London and spent most of his life in exile, prevented from returning by the communist government that had taken control of Yugoslavia after World War II. He first visited the former Yugoslavia in 1991, on the eve of the country’s civil war. After numerous visits the Crown Prince moved permanently to Serbia in 2001. He and his family now live in the Royal Palace in Belgrade.
A strong supporter of democracy, stability, and human rights, Crown Prince Alexander seeks to create a constitutional monarchy in Serbia.
During his visit the Crown Prince will meet with students, faculty and staff. He will also hold a Master’s Tea on the topic of “Contributing to Democratic Change in Serbia.”
