She was not a French Princess for nothing...

Indeed. I like the head scarf and the beads she was wearing. Too bad we don't get to see the whole outfit.  :(

Looks more like Michel's confirmation with the cross and the priest.

Correct. This is indeed the first communion of Prince Michael of Greece in Malaga. Prince Michel who wrote the text of "My family album" by the Count of Paris, describes the picture thus: "The Count of Paris has escaped from Pamplona to come to Malaga, where his sister Princess Christopher of Greece, was temporarily installed. He attended the first communion of his nephew, who was held at the Augustinian convent.

That is interesting, I thought Prince Michael was Greek Orthodox not Roman Catholic.

 Francoise never converted to Orthodoxy and she raised her son RC since her husband died when Michael was a baby.

That is interesting for a Greek Prince to be Catholic. Did her son married in the Catholic faith too ? I am pretty sure he was married in Athens. His daughter Olga was recently married in the Greek Orthodox faith.

Nancy Leeds was not styled Princess Christopher.  She was created a Princess in her own right, as HRH Princess Anastasia -- well, when your millions help restore the monarchy, the least the king could do was create Nancy a princess.

Was something like this done for any other by the Greek Royal Family?

King Alexander's wife, Aspasia Manos, was created by decree, 10 September 1922, as "Princess of Greece and Denmark" and the style of Royal Highness and her marriage was recognized. This also extended the privilege to their daughter Alexandra.
