Meanwhile, Danica – whose father is a respected impressionist painter who has worked with designer Roksanda Ilincic – is no stranger to the high life, with photos showing her enjoying a never-ending series of sun-kissed holidays in Seville, Milan and Croatia.

Born in Belgrade, she is officially a French citizen and, like Philip, studied in the UK, graduating from the Chelsea College of Arts in London before embarking on a successful career as a designer.

Serbia – formerly part of Yugoslavia – is now a republic but its once-exiled royal family have lived in Belgrade’s Royal Palace since 2001.
