Culver hosts royal visitor
Culver Academies hosted the return of a royal alum, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander II of Yugoslavia, who attended the school during
the 1950s and paid a visit here last week. Born on Yugoslav territory while his mother, Queen Alexandra and father, King Peter II, were exiled in Great Britian from their homeland due to Communist occupation (they had originally been forced into exile by advancing German forces during World War II), the Crown Prince served in the British Army and pursued international business. Although he officially could use the title King, he chose to retain the Crown Prince Title, and has traveled the world and become known for his ardent defense of democracy and human rights.
He’s pictured here meeting Serbian-American student Nikola Devura of Chicago.
