Olga and Marina are visited frequently. With her husband, the Duchess of Kent was in the habit of going on holidays every year in Yugoslavia.

I finally found the answer in a newspaper article dated November 03, 1952 said : " The Duchess of Kent last month opened a new oil well in Seria, Borneo's boom town, by smashing a bottle of champagne on the derrick. Curious to see how the champagne tasted, the Duchess risked her tongue to sip from the broken bottle".
