I don't know what Queen Frederica did to be hated like that

Mmm, well let's see: at least Tsarina Alexandra had the excuse she was the wife of an autocrat when she tried to run the government. Given Greece was supposed to be democracy, Frederika had no such excuse.

As for Constantine: his present situation is not surprising, even for a country where monarchs needed to keep their bags packed. He comes across as charmless, limited, stubborn and arrogant IMHO.

Does anyone have information about where the King and Queen are located in Athens? Did they purchase a place in Psychiko?

According to a post on this Greek website (link below) there was an ugly incident this week involving Constantine and two bodyguards in Athens when he turned up at a coffee shop. When the patrons spotted him they began shouting what business did he have there and demanding he leave. At first he refused to leave, and it got bad, and people went to the kitchen looking for yogurt and tomatoes to throw at him and calling him a "mullah of Frederika" (God she really must be loathed.) He was hurried away in a limo.

Has anyone heard if this is true and any more about it? I can't find anything in the Greek media about it, but they all hate his guts, so it may not be published.

My dear bongo, welcome to the forum. Personally, I'd much avoid to reproduce any of the nonsense crap some ''editors'' try to sell with newspapers people buy only to get the gifts included (especially gas coupons). As about the opinion modern Greeks have of the royal family, unfortunately it's like the opinion we have on everything, superficial that is and full of stereotypes. Modern Greeks do not have the patience to riexamine their recent past and they much prefer an ancient one which they find more glorious and less painfull to their self image.
