Belgrade, 3 May 2018 – His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander hosted a dinner at the White Palace in honour of Arch hierarchs of the Serbian Orthodox Church who are participating in the regular Church Assembly.
The dinner was attended by His Holiness Patriarch Irinej of Serbia with Metropolitans and Bishops of the Church, Prof. Dr. Mileta Radojevic Serbian Government Director for Cooperation with Churches and Religious Communities, and members of the advisory bodies to the Crown.
“I am very glad that we gathered at the White Palace for dinner as we do every year. This dinner is in the honour of His Holiness the Patriarch of Serbia and the members of the Holy Assembly of Bishops. This has become a traditional event that should be cherished because it gives an example of unity and cooperation for the common good. The Church and the Crown are the two institutions in our country that bring stability. Last year was even more special since our Patriarch officiated the wedding of my son Philip and Princess Danica, and the bells of St. Sava temple rang as the main and official sign of birth of Prince Stefan. May God bless all our people and our country”, said HRH Crown Prince Alexander.
His Holiness Patriarch Irinej of Serbia thanked for the hospitality to HRH Crown Prince Alexander, wished the good luck to the Royal Family, as well as peace, justice and salvation to all people of good will.
