Following the fall of the Ethiopian monarchy, Prince Zera Yacob completed his studies at Oxford in the mid-seventies and went on to work briefly as a banker in the United States. He then returned to London to be closer to his parents. He was married and had a daughter, Princess Lideta Zera Yacob, but was subsequently divorced from his wife. He briefly accompanied his father Amha Selassie when he moved to Virginia in the US in 1989, but later returned to England and resided for a time in Manchester. He was designated as the heir apparent by his father, Crown Prince Asfaw Wossen, upon the latter's assumption of the title Emperor-in-Exile in April 1989.
