As I said, the wedding was a major news story. I am sure that if you  go to a library - you will find microfilm etc.  That's what I would do if I was looking for the information.

On the thread of the Windors i read that King Constatine II was ill treated so i was wondering what really happened who ill treated him and why?

what was the situation in Greece?  why did they have to abdicate?(i'm assuming)  

Sorry for the questions but i am not familiar with the life of the Greek Royal Family.
But to lose heart, my friend, is sinful: Glance, as God peace it is excellent.

OK, I'm just having some fun, but not many places I can shout "Long Live King Constantine!", and my mother, though a fellow monarchist, is tired of my runts at home!
Hahahaha

Hope you all are having a good day!

Modern Greeks never had a royal family of their own!
Royals (first a Bavarian and then a Dane) were imposed onto Greece by the great powers of the 19th century, in their own interest.
As a consequence, Greek royals mostly satisfied foreign interests after they had usually satisfied their own naturally.
However, because of their politics they certainly succeeded in dividing naturally emotional Greeks very deeply. This divisiveness has cost the Greeks and their country quite dearly over time! They have even killed each other over the continuation of monarchy or not.
Finally, given modern trends of dissolution of monarchies in favor of other modes of political control, the monarchy was also abolished in Greece with the first opportunity.
Constantine has not been maltreated. Most Greeks felt they had no more use for him any more. Privately, he has lived quite a comfortable life with his family and descendants.
Since he holds the view that he is still entitled to be king of Greece rather than just live in Greece as another rich individual, the Greek government does not quite wish for his return--since they are not looking forward to unnecessary political disturbances!
This is one view in summary form!

If the monarchy is reinstated in Greece, I predict  Tino II will not ascend the throne. áIt will be Crown Prince Paul and Princess Marie Chantal. áJust like Spain. á

I would bet my last US dollar on it.

What are the succession laws in Greece?áCan a woman ascend to the non existant throne? á

Just curious.

Apparently Greek royal females do have succession rights.

Can the succession pass through a female?

Under the succession laws changed in the early 50s, females were able to ascend the throne.  Constantine, Sophia, and Irene all had succession rights, of which Sophia gave up her rights upon her marriage to Juan Carlos, and Irene was Heir-Presumptive to the throne prior to the birth of Princess Alexia.  
Also, I believe Princess Marie's descendants, (Princess Marie, daughter of George I, wife of GD George Michailovich) also were in the line of succession.  

Personally, while I like Pavlos and offense to HRH, for me a more suitable candidate would be Prince Nikolaos, in my opinion, but that is another issue.

Prince Nikolaos the younger brother of Pavlos.

Does it bother the Greeks that Marie Chantal Miller is not Greek or European?

Amen to that!
Long live the king!

As a greek I am not bothered that marie chantal in not european. Most "queens" are not from the country they rule anyway.

Too bad the monarchy is no more here in greece...

They left as a result of a referendum organized by the generals who assumed powers after the military coup of 1964
