Our dear friend, Dr Nada Milosavljevic, who gets the most credit for this event, is here with us today. She wanted to present this kindergarten to this village because her family is from this area, and by doing that to pay homage to her roots.“ Her Royal Higheness added that she and her husband Crown Prince Alexander are being blessed to know wonderful people, like Dr Milosavljevic, who are always willing to help our people and our country, and who never forget their roots.
