He may just adopt to using the title of crownprince of Serbia without formally changing it. I would like to see him change the title for the descendants of Prince Alexander (son of regent Paul) to HRH prince(ss) Karadjorge. That was also how Petar was refered to before he became King of Serbia and later of Yugoslavia. |

: In other words, as the head and king de

: the titles of the royal if he so wishes.
: As of now, he signs his letter with
: "Crown Prince of Yugoslavia", but
: also refers to himself as "Head of the
: Serbian Royal Family" (and not
: "...of the Yugoslavian Royal

: there are good reasons to keep the old
: titles - at least for now - as well.
