A very nice design. The ward of the key appears to be Cyrillic letters : what do they mean?

I don't think so - but my last wrestling with the cyrillic alphabet was admittedly 25 years ago!

With Yugoslavia broken up into the original governmental land masses, which country are these Royals from? 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?

This is not the Cyrillic alphabet, but Latin letters R and B.

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.
