His Royal Highness opened the event with a welcoming speech, expressing his gratitude to the authors and publisher saying: “the books presented here today are important for keeping the memory of my ancestors and the history of our people, which indivisible part members of the Karadjordjevic family were.

These days are behind us, and we are now talking about the truth and the facts. I am not saying only as their descendant, but as a member of our nation, the contributions of our nation’s leaders from my family to the people and our country were of great significance and deserve to be remembered.”
