Nice image ! Thanks for sharing. I think I have seen it before as an illustration in the original edition of "My Fifty Years", the memoirs of Olga's father, Prince Nicholas of Greece.

Paul and Olga with young King Peter of Yugoslavia :



I've always wondered about the relationship between the young king and the regent Paul, if they were really cordial and what prompted him to take power by forcing Prince Paul and his family go into exile.

Paul and Peter had cordial relationship indeed...they often stuck together in exile,later in their life!

Paul and his family were forced to leave the country by the British government,as British government were in good relations with Serbian nationalists,who opposed Paul and whose main leader was Bora Mirkovic,Commander of Air Forces.

Months before they were exiled Churchill prepared everything and wrote that Paul and his regency were planning to take the complete power,which was,of course,not true...once he signed treaty of neutrality with Hitler,Paul was forced into exile...

It should be noted that he was left just 4 hours to prepare for his exile!

Yes,before that Churchill wanted Yugoslavia to attack Germany in order to keep them busy in the South/East,but Paul as a regent denied it and that's how the problem started...

Paul had to think about his people. He was in a no win situation. His regency was a crown of thorns. It would have been better for the family to flee before the war. But he promised his cousin King Alexander to take care of business until his son is old enough to take the reins.

Exactly,he thought about his people and that's why he refused Churchill in that matter...Yugoslavia was no match for the Germans and attacking Germany and proclaiming the war at that moment would be just self-destruction and he knew it ...while Churchill,clever as he was,wanted to use his Yugoslavia in political purposes!

Yes. Because of it, Paul and his family paid a heavy price...exile, humiliation, loss of property...
