In fact, Peter II fell victim to the duplicity of Winston Churchill and the British government which, while giving the illusion of support and reassurance about the prospects of regaining his throne after the war, were counting the same time on Tito favored and, from behind, his rise in Yugoslavia.

Despite her English ancestry, or perhaps because of them, his mother Queen Marie, who lived in London in 1948, had well guessed these maneuvers unspoken and provided what was coming. She was concerned with the officers of the Royal Guards, urging them to save her son. For some time, it left her no see Peter and she worried especially since she knew how much her son was weak and easily influenced.

- The King must remain with his mother, he should not listen to Mr. Churchill, she still had entrusted to the officers.

But Peter was not to be concerned about his mother who died three years later.

And indeed, as Queen Marie could watch over him, he remained dignified. The day, preparing a fate that only served their interests, some British leaders parted the young King from his family, he fell into a total deprivation.

It is interesting to see how much Mignon was in the picture even though she was supposed to have "retired" to country life with her companion and young sons. It was perhaps a mistake of her not to take her daughter-in-law, Alexandra into her confidence when she had the chance. I wonder how Olga felt about Peter marrying into her own family even though her sister Marina was all for it. Even though Alexandra was part of the Greek Royal Family, it did not appear that she and Olga's family was particularly close. In fact her son Crown Prince Alexander and Olga's son Alexander did not really got along.

I know that Queen Marie of Yugoslavia was not favorable to the marriage of her son Peter with Alexandra of Greece, where her aloofness towards her daughter-in-law. As for the opinion of Olga, I don't know.

Olga and Paul relaxing on a yacht that belongs to them, perhaps, if they had one, since all European royal families ruling at the time had one :

The baby couldn't be Catherine OxEnberg (family name is with E,not with U,just like it's BattenbErg,and not BattenbUrg) , as her sister Christina is 2 years younger than her... so,the baby is Christina...
