BELGRADE, Serbia - Serbia's throne-less royals have welcomed a new member into the Karadjordjevic family that once ruled Yugoslavia but was exiled for decades during communism.

Prince Philip and Princess Danica Karadjordjevic presented their newborn son Stefan as they brought him home from a Belgrade hospital on Friday.

The Serbian royals say Stefan Karadjordjevic is the first male child born in Serbia to the family in 90 years.

The Karadjordjevics ruled Yugoslavia until communists took power after World War II and abolished the monarchy. Exiled during and after the war, they returned to Serbia around 2000.

Philip is one of the sons of Crown Prince Aleksandar Karadjordjevic, the heir to Serbia's now-defunct throne. He was born in Fairfax, Virginia, while his wife is the daughter of prominent Serbian painter Cile Marinkovic.
