The Royal walk in Monaco with PRINCE MICHEL OF YUGOSLAVIA


Son of Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia and Princess Maria Pia of Savoy, Prince Michel of Yugoslavia is related to all the royal families of Europe. In addition to his professional activities, he gradually became a photographer. He took up photography where his ancestors lived in Serbia, between East and West. This is where his cycle of Coats of Arms began, mixing landscapes and their coats of arms. Optical art that at a glance reveals identity and complex history.

During international contemporary photography festivals in South Korea and China, far from his sphere of influence, he gained notoriety as an art photographer. “A walk in Monaco” is a pretty story born with the first lockdown. Thinking of his locked up friends and followers, he began to post on his Instagram what he was lucky enough to see from his windows, and in the empty streets of the Principality during authorized walking hours. Realizing the pleasure he gave to others, he published every day, for months, dozens of photographs of deserted, silent, timeless Monaco.

Tell us a bit about your family background?

My family is very modern, even if it has a thousand years of history. We are related to all the royal families of Europe, including to the Russian imperial family.

How do you related to Russian Royal families?

My Russian roots come from my father. My dad’s mother, or my grandmother – Olga. Her grandfather was Drand Duke Vladimir, son of Alexander II and brother of Alexander III. My grandfather Paul had a Russian mother -Princess Demidoff

What is the best part to be a Prince in a modern world?

The best part of being a Prince is the power it gives you on yourself and with people. You are able to propose great projects that will help the planet. 

What qualities must have a modern Princess?

A Princess must be a real person. She must not be fake, she must be genuine and have a big heart. She must have an open heart, must be powerful and wanting the good of people around her. She must care for the good of the planet and have a mission, a purpose bigger than her. She might want to eradicate pollution by plastic, or stop hunger, or help elder people. She must also be close to her husband and their children.

How was your exhibition at Banque Havilland Monaco?

The title of the exhibition was called “A walk in Monaco”. I was exhibiting 19 photos in black and white of Monaco. The fact that they are not in color gives a sense of timelessness to the photography. It establishes the images in time, as if time was stopped. It also makes the subjects more elegant. Some photos were taken during the one hour of walk allowed during lock down and show a very impressive view of the city. It is also the first steps to a book.
