The official website of the Serbian Royal Family announced today that the state funeral for King Peter II, Queen Alexandra, Queen Maria and Prince Andrej will take place on May 26 of this year.
The late Yugoslavian Royals are to be re-buried in the Royal Family Mausoleum in Oplenac. Before the reburial, they will lay in the Royal Chapel of the Royal Palace in Belgrade. The surprising news that the two Yugoslavian Queens and Prince Andrej are to be reburied as well was officially announced only today, along with the announcement of the date.
On January 18, 2013 Crown Prince Alexander announced of the impending reburial of his father’s remains although no date was set back then. It is expected that Their Majesty’s funeral will be attended by most members of the Serbian Royal Family, representatives of the Serbian Orthodox Church, President Tomislav Nikolic and senior members of the Government.
