OMG yes.  I see the resemblance too.  Hopefully she's not a fanatical fundamentalist about religion.

September 26
Young royals look forward to their historic wedding day

Interview

Britić is delighted to publish an exclusive interview with HRH Prince Filip Karađorđević son of Crown Prince Aleksandar Karađorđević and Princess Maria da Gloria of Orleans Bragança and Princess-to-be Danica, daughter of a renowned Serbian artist Cile Marinkovic, as they make their preparations for the first Serbian royal wedding in the country since 1922.

We are a strong nation, there is not much that can take us away from our dreams.

Cultured and accomplished, Prince Filip and Danica are not only Serbian royals but Serbian royals raised in the Diaspora. Their experience is one that many readers might identify with. As Prince Filip explains, adding our Serbian heritage to an education and early life in the West makes for a “culturally rich” mix. In what could almost be a rallying cry he goes on to say, “As long as we are working hard, with our strength we can succeed anywhere we want”.

HRH Prince Filip, 35, was born in Fairfax, Virginia, USA and is second in line to the throne. He met his fiancée Danica Marinković at a dinner at the Royal Palace. Their engagement was announced in July this year and the nuptials will be at one of Belgrade’s loveliest landmarks, the Cathedral of St. Michael the Archangel (Saborna crkva) in Belgrade on Saturday, 7 October 2017.

They describe their cosmopolitan upbringing as being “very dynamic”. Prince Filip recalls:

I have lived in London and Danica used to live in Paris. We would occasionally return to Belgrade, to see our family and friends, building wonderful memories.

The couple reminisced on their romance following that fateful dinner at the palace. As they talked realised they were drawn together by much that they share in common.

We both like arts, literature, travelling and nature. It was a mutual sympathy that we could almost instantly feel. We began seeing each other more often, which only brought us closer. We stayed together and were very sure that we will spend our lives with each other. It was very romantic, and our dream will become true this fall, when we get married in Belgrade.

Churchill temporarily ceded the suite as the territory of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The royal couple expressed particular emotions at visiting this landmark of our recent royal history.

The royals are certainly well-appointed for international duties speaking English, French and Spanish as well as Serbian.


Q: What language do you speak to one another in private moments?

“I spent much of my childhood and life in Paris and, as we love French culture and the language, we often speak French, its very romantic”, says Dana.
Prince Filip adds, “I spent a lot of my childhood in Spain, so sometimes we speak in Spanish, it’s a beautiful language. But we usually speak to each other in English and Serbian, to honour to the country we live in and the country we are from.”
The young couple are in the throes of preparing for the wedding with a formidable team at their side. Huge media attention is expected to set the wedding apart as exceptionally high profile event and the couple are are happy to share their special day with beloved friends and family, and the whole nation who, they say, deserve to be a part of the first Serbian Royal Wedding since 1922.
Looking beyond the wedding, the couple plan to preserve the centuries-old traditions of the Karadjordjević family. Besides her new duties, Danica will continue to work in the arts which is her passion and profession. Prince Filip currently works for a renowned global asset management firm in London and for the time being their life in the city will continue. Both are clear about their wishes looking ahead – a return to Serbia.

Q: How do you let your hair down in London and Belgrade?
“It is great to be a young couple in a dynamic metropolis like London. We particularly love going to musicals and the theatre, the choice in London is great. Also, we appreciate exploring nature, and having a healthy lifestyle. When in Belgrade, as a leading city in terms of having a good time, we enjoy the company of our close family and friends, and having long lasting lunches and dinners, talking and laughing, just making ourselves feel at home.”

Q: Danica, have you felt at all daunted by the responsibilities associated with being a princess?
“Like every new period in life, marriage brings new roles and responsibilities that naturally come with the union to the person you love. I welcome every new moment in my life with joy, respect, and excitement. Therefore I am ready to respond with great attention to all the duties that my title will bring in the future.”

Q: Did you ever read fairy tales and imagine you would marry a prince?
“Fairy tales are part of our childhood, and it is a great way to build the imagination in the young ones. Moreover, I had the chance to grew up in an artistic family as my father Cile Marinković is a painter. When I was child I spent a lot my time in his art studio where my curiosity and creativity flourished.”
He used to create an atmosphere where we would make some art together, he would create a beautiful little universe for us, filled with love and joy, endless imagination, and he would paint me in every possible character from my all favourite fairy tales that I loved. These moments were really very important for me, and now they became reality.
Artist Cile Marinković donated works for the Lifeline Humanitarian Organisation’s charity auction earlier in the year in aid of children with disabilities.
Being proud of Serbia
The royal lovebirds say they are proud of Serbia and feel an acute sense of duty to contribute fully to the people of Serbia. However, neither do they neglect the heritage of the onetime Kingdom of Yugoslavia, whose first monarch was the Prince’s great grandfather King Aleksandar I. It is important to know that the former Yugoslavia was a great country, Belgrade was the capital of six states. Belgrade is considered to be one of the most important cities Eastern Europe, drawing the boundaries of East and West, the Orient and the Occident.

The Prince reflects on the importance of the British Royal Family to the UK in its global outreach, an institution to which he is 103rd in line for succession. He expands on the distinctiveness of each of the European dynasties, a fact which makes our own heritage all the more relevant:
“The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was one of the most important of its time, and the heritage we carry is crucial to the development of our nation. All the changes that we have witnessed over the years made Serbia what it is today. Serbia is lucky to have a Royal background that gives it a historical context of great importance, an aspect that many other countries would love to have. Over the past 20 years that value, importance and respect is slowly coming back. That is the pathway that we will follow.”

The Prince also backs initiatives like the Kingdom of Serbia Association (Udružanje Kraljevina Srbije) which has been actively promoting the restoration of the monarchy in Serbia since its inception in 2008. He sees a collective and inspirational role as we “all work together for the progression and prosperity of our beautiful country. Serbia is open to different nationalities, cultures, religions. The nation has many great minds, minds that when are united can achieve many great things, just as we did in the past and will do again in the future.”

The wedding ceremony of Prince Philip with Danica Marinkovic was today.
No Tiara for the bride but emerald earrings and pendant.

I don't like the sleeves on the dress, but the couple looks happy!  I'm surprised Crown Princess Victoria acted as Matron of Honor, I guess she and Philip know each other but I wouldn't know how...

That wedding dress is a disaster. I applaud her for going off the beaten path (all the Grace Kelly wannabe lace dresses and the sweetheart neckline) but that unfortunately was a train wreck.

The dress would have been so pretty if it wasn't 110 sizes too big for her.   Shocked  She is absolutely swimming in that dress and strangely, it makes her look like her breasts are sagging down to her waist.  Awful, awful, awful choice of a dress.

The dress is a disaster. There are rumors floating around that the big bow might have been designed to hide something.  Whistle The short span between engagement and wedding sort of support this theory, but we will have to wait and see.  Lolipop

We'll see   Whistle The timing indeed is similar to Prince Jaime of Bourbon Parma and Viktoria Cservenyák : engagement in early August ( late July for Philip & Danica) then wedding in October... and first baby born the following February  Whistle

Butt hey look happy together.

Haha there's definitely a bun in that oven. They are subtly attractive people. I guess the Serbia royals milk their royal connections left and right kind of like Constantine in Greece they just charm everyone to bits so that they can have royal friends and witnesses and such. They seem to be genuinely nice people with a lot of pride so well no harm no foul.
