I think Anne Marie is wonderful as well. The real losers in all of this are the Greek people.

I think the King may well have the chance to move back to Greece as a private citizen. I doubt though that the Monarchy will ever be restored in Greece. The republic is irrational when it comes to King Constantine and his family. How many republics have you known that have come into being via democratic means? There are not many and there are fewer that have ever given their citizens the chance to vote on whether they become a monarchy again.

I agree that should be the case too. Can't see why he has to remain in exile... ???

There is no legal or moral reason that he has to remain in exile Eric. It is just the sad fact that the despots in Greece are afraid of what may happen if he even returns as a private citizen.Hence they wont even restore his citizenship on the pretext that he does not declare/have a surname.

I cant see it happening soon pal.The king and family use the European Union immigration act and Danish passport which does not require a visa and I know that the Goverment is not happy at all about that but there is nothing that they can do about it, and I dont believe they will change their ways soon.

Well since the Greek government deprived King Constantine of his own nationality what else was he to do? To strip somebody born Greek of citizenship is quite illegal no matter how it was done.

Indeed...If Constantine took this to court, he'll have a good case and most likely win. More egg on the Greek government's face... ::)

I think though that Constantine prefers to keep out of this sort of mess as he knows his detractors would have a field day against him in the media and therefore tarnish his reputation.

Yes I sadly think nothing would have happened if the Greek government had not been pressured into it. Successive republican governments in Greece have told lies about Constantine and his family repeatedly.
