Prince Alexander of Serbia and Yugoslavia, also named Aleksandar Karađorđević (Serbian Cyrillic: Александар Карађорђевић; born 15 January 1982 in Fairfax, Virginia, USA), is a member of the House of Karađorđević.

Life[edit]

He is the son of the last crown prince of Yugoslavia, Alexander, and his first wife, Princess Maria da Gloria. He is the fraternal twin of Prince Philip of Yugoslavia. He is the third in the line to the former throne, after his elder brothers.[1] His godparents are Queen Sofía of Spain, King Constantine II of Greece (both first cousins of his father), and Princess Anne, Duchess of Calabria (first cousin of his mother).

Alexander lived in Virginia until 1984. He was educated in London and Canterbury with his twin brother. In June 2000, he completed sixth form at The King's School, Canterbury. He was awarded a BA degree in Communications and Media from the University of San Francisco in 2004. Alexander was at a graduate school at an American university completing a MFA degree in Advertising (Art Direction). Currently he is working in the internet electronic publishing area in California.

On 17 July 2001, the former royal family took up residence in the Royal Palace in Belgrade.[2] As a 4th-great-grandson of Queen Victoria, Alexander is in the line of succession to the British throne.[3]
