This is a very interesting subject. Can anybody indicate which of the infantry regiments had royal patrons, ie which regiments would have a cypher on the shoulderboard rather than a regimental number? 

I know it's been almost 5 years since you asked the question but better late than never. 
According to the regulations from 1939 the following infantry regiments wore monograms:

-1st Infantry Regiment "Miloš the Great"
-2nd Infantry Regiment "Prince Mihailo"
-5th Infantry Regiment "King Milan"
-6th Infantry Regiment "King Aleksandar" 
-7th Infantry Regiment "King Petar I"
-8th Infantry Regiment "Prince Aleksandar"
-11th Infantry Regiment "Karađorđe"
-14th Infantry Regiment "King Petar II"
-16th Infantry Regiment "Emperor Nicholas II"
-25th Infantry Regiment "King Ferdinand of Romania" 
-38th Infantry Regiment "Njegoš"
-54th Infantry Regiment "King Carol II of Romania"

The blue and red cap has a Peter I monogram on the cockade not a Peter II monogram because it's a pre-WWI model.

Of course, but I wasn't talking about the cap and cockade, I wrote: "Braided shoulder boards with Petar II monogram."

"Serbia, Kingdom. A Set of Army Colonels' Epaulettes, Adjutant to King Alexander 1897-1900

(Epolete višeg pešadijskog Oficira, Kraljevog ađutanta u činu Pukovnika); constructed of high quality material, of multi piece construction, with gilded and silvered metal parts, gilded fringes, silvered Royal Chyper superimposed on top (Milan Obrenovic), and red fabric underneath. Of highest quality manufacture, likely Austrian, in near mint condition case of issue (case showing some age); a very rare and desirable set of Epaulettes in top quality and condition."

Wrong description, king's adjutants wore monograms of the current, not the past ruler. Apart from that, the monogram is from a different period.,

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
