Serbia and Albania

The Serbian crown prince Alexander inherited the private residences of his father. So the Royal compound in Dedinje is privately owned and returned to the Royals. From a Serbian friend i understand that Alexander's knowledge of the Serbian language did result in some raised eyebrows or laughs because he would say one thing while meaning something else. I suppose that has improved.
In Albania Prince Leka has also received private property of his grandfather and his marriage was celebrated in government property.
The Elizabeta Palace is where King Michael was living when the Russians forced him to abdicate. Upon his return, the old king and probably Margaret as well were to receive a small salary, a small civil list and a car for their various royal functions. I believe that Bulgaria treated King Simeon the same as Romania with King Michael. I think that Montenegro has done the same for their prince and the returning royal family. The prince receives a small salary, a civil list, partial use of the old royal palace, and other items necessary for his royal functions. Did both Albania and Serbia do somewhat the same for their returned royals?
