I understand there is a Royalist movement in many of the former Soviet countries, are these movements and the current governments looking to set up a constitutional monarchy or be more like Germany where there appears to be a nod to their former status but not much more presently?
The former Yugoslavian Royal family was originally the Serbian one-it became the Yugoslav one in 1918 when Serbia unified with the short-lived Croat and Slovene State that had replaced the Austrian Habsburg Crownlands of Bosnia and the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia. After Yugoslavia broke up into its constituent nations, the former Yugoslav Royal family renamed itself 'of Serbia' around 2006; and the members of the family had their Arms altered to remove any reference to Croatia or Slovenia, as they did before.
The Royalist movement in Serbia, thought there are other Balkan nations that have monarchist movements, is unusually strong, probably because the Karadjordjevic family is ultimately of Serbian origin and its founder-Djordje Petrovic, a Serb national hero-was of ordinary peasant stock.
Serbian dynasty that arose from the people. Аnd we are very proud of it. Compared to other Balkan Serbian royal house is the only national, that is Serbian.
And their name is the Royal House of Serbia and Yugoslavia. And they do not renounce either Croatia or Slovenia.
