22 July 2011. Prime Minister Igor Luksic hosted a reception in honour of the Montenegrin Royal Family, the House of Petrovic Njegos, in Cetinje. The event celebrated the adoption of the Royal Family Law, which regulates the status of the descendants of the House of Petrovic.

“I believe that the adoption of the law not only rectifies a great historic injustice, but provides for moral and historic rehabilitation of your family,” PM Luksic told Prince Nikola Petrovic during a meeting earlier today.

Prince Nikola welcomed the adoption of the law, as he said, not only for the sake of the past, but because of the future as well, as it enables the Royal Family to participate in European processes in Montenegro.

“I am happy with everything that is happening today and I am looking forward to what is to come,” said the Prince.
