That's not Frederika--isn't it his maternal grandmother Queen Ingrid of Denmark?

Alexia's wedding--she's wearing the tiara that was a wedding present to her great-grandmother Margaret 'Daisy' of Connaught. The tiara was left to Daisy's only daughter, Queen Ingrid of Denmark--mother of Queen Anne Marie of Greece.





I think there's something of Daisy in Alexia's face.

Aspasia Manos was never granted the title of Queen. And can you both give more detail about both of your stories. I don't want to sound stupid but isn't Stavros Niacharos the one Paris Hilton is dating?
In the future, people will not say that the Greeks fought like heros. but rather that heros fight like Greeks...

I think it was the father he was talking about. But I thought he was later married to Tina Onasiss (Ari's ex-wife and grandmother to the current heiress Athina).  ???

As I recall, the ruby bracelet was lost in a Swiss airport.
I have a personal interest in the Greek royal family and am fond of them, however, a "great documentary" would chronicle the long standing conflict between the Greek politicals and the  comings and goings of the monarchs. This was more of an "entertainment bio" of Constantine. There are more than 2 sides to the stories behind his reign, the coups, the generals junta, counter-coup and the present uneasy settlement between the powers-that-be and the powers-that-were.
Cheers,

A couple of years ago when I was in Aegina, I visited the cathedral there and saw an Olympic gold medal for yachting placed next to the ikon of Saint Nektarios.  As far as I'm aware, the only gold medal won in the Olympics for yachting was won by (then) Crown Prince Constantine.  The fact that someone--maybe even Tino--would put something like this in that place makes me wish I knew the whole story.  Did Constantine have any special connection to Aegina that you know of?
