In October 2017, Philip married Danica Marinkovic (b.1986); their son Stefan, the future Head of the Royal House of Serbia, was born in February 2018. Prince Stefan of Serbia was the first member of the Serbian royal family to be born in their homeland since the birth of Prince Tomislav, the father of Prince Michael and great-uncle of Prince Philip, in 1928.
