I looked at MC's profile on amiannoying.com(A website about "annoying" famous people)And it said she likes to be called "Your Majesty".Do your think that's true?I don't know how reliable the person who wrote it.If it's true,than it's kinda weird since she's not really a queen.

Here's the link

AmIAnnoying.com

PS,if you scroll down and click on,"Royaly Nobles and Monarchs"it shows how "annoying" royals are past and present.It's very entertaining when your bored!

I have mixed feelings about M-C, but I do NOT think she is stupid enough to demand that anyone call her "Your Majesty!"

Not in private and certainly not in public.

I can see her demanding to be addressed as "Your Highness" which might be annoying to some people since Greece no longer has a monarchy.

I do not think Marie Chantal required to be called "majesty" it would be "Highness." When she speaks in the interview, she does not give importance to titles, but I do not like, because I think that in the lists of guests of royal houses of Europe appears as Princess. She should appreciate this more, although Greece is a republic , she shall no forget that she is in these weddings by the title of Princess

Especially since she's not a Queen- ruling or not thus Your Majesty isn't even her proper title.....

I am not a fun of MC by any stretch of the imagination, but I strongly believe that she is aware of who she is and how far she can go. Majesty is not a title I would think she expects to be called. However when a reporter from W magazine called for an interview years ago at the Connecticut farm he was told that Her Royal Highness was at the New York house...In the GRF website she is fashioned HRH Princess MC Crown Princess Pavlos so these are the titles the King bestowed upon her.

never had any problems with her or the GRF they are irrelivant now and when Constantine II dies.she will never be called Queen nor her husband King.
they will always be HH or HRH unless Greece brings back the monarchy but considering the present chaos and most likely future instabiltiy in the state of greece thats never going to happen

Can anyone tell me what does the Danish RF members (especially Queen Ingrid and Margrethe) think of her?

I think MC is probably a nice woman but there's just something I don't like about her...

There's no way of know what the Danes think of MC. For awhile CP Mary dressed her kids in clothes from her stores; as did Princess Alexia. Queen Ingrid never spoke ill of MC before her death in 2000 but I would be surprised if she did. Queen Margrethe has also never spoken about MC so anything answer is only a guess. I suspect that the children keep each other's company more than we know. I remember an interview with Princess Theodora who said she spent time with Princes William and Harry growing up but there were never any pictures or discussions about such things. And Prince Nikolaos said a similar thing in a interview a few years ago. '

I don't have a problem with MC. She hasn't put a foot wrong since she married Pavlos. She's produced 5 lovely children and her marriage has stood the test of time. I also respect her business savvy. I don't love her but neither do I dislike her because I have not been given a reason.

When a Royal Family attend to one wedding of another House Royal, the House Royal reigning, they represent to their State. When a Royal House non- Reigning attends to one royal wedding, they do not represent to one State, they represent one Dynasty.

The Dynasty has content and the content is THE STORY OF THAT ROYAL HOUSE. I think Marie Chantal do not represents the history of the Dynasty, but I think she knows it, and she prefers to be seen as a member of the Jet set, however I recognize that Marie Chantal position is difficult to support, for example, she carried the tiara of Queen Federika , in 40 anniversary of the coronation of Queen of denmark, the tiara had very story....

My opinion, I think that the conduct of Marie Chantal is not of one Princess.
I don´t see to Marie Chantal like one member of nobility, I see Marie Chantal like one member of jet set.

I expect you to understand that I say, I say this in good faith, I do not criticize the jet set. I differentiate, it is not the same one member of the Jet set than a member of the nobility. Many European nobility are now members of the Jet set. but I do not like it, because at the end it lose the history of the Dynasty and loses its essence which is the historical value.

I like Marie Chantal a lot. I admire her as a woman who is enterprising even though she could be a millionaire "brat".Her children are beautiful and they clearly adore her.
I think she knows and respects her title but also that they are no more reigning in Greece, so she is not a member of a Royal Household and lives her life accordingly,
In many royal or princely marriages she has attended and very well dressed, always and dignified.
But her day to day life is of a modern woman with five children and a gorgeous husband.

I'm not surprised that they didn't have all kinds of toys,simply because there weren't many kinds of them to be found in Greece.My mother has told me that she and her sister hadn't seen candies or chocolates until the age of 15.
They had toys and chocolates and ice cream and many other things.They were in Greece not the Congo at that time.. you also could get peanut butter there it was American naval bases everywhere please!
Maybe they did not have them so as not to become spoiled which they are not.

I know what you mean. Everytime I see Princess Charlene of Monaco I feel she does not look nor dress like the other princesses, but dresses like a model, or like you say, the 'jet set'. And as you say, nothing wrong with that, but I feel if you're in a position like that, then you should dress to the position.

Re Marie-Chantal, I know little about her, but she always seems to be pleasant and at the Royal Weddings she goes to, appropriately dressed. And Prince Pavlos is certainly pleasant on the eye, especially now that he doesn't have that severe hairstyle he used to have. Much like Prince Daniel has now; he could definitely have a softer hairstyle (and glasses) and would look much more approachable. Just my opinion, of course.

My opinion on her

I used to like Marie Chantal. Despite she her noveau rich vibe, she seemed a down to earth woman, a good mother, a good wife, and very cultured. That Vanity fair about the "american royalty" with her sisters were too pretentious and unnecessary, but who does not make mistakes?

Now, watching closely, she seems like a cheap socialite, starving for media, exposing her children unnecessarily, like a stage mom. She wants her children to be famous, her daughter be model, actress, dont know... who to me doesnt fit for any of the roles, Maria Olimpia is just avarage looking, sorry. Also, she takes benefits from any royal connection, and has the "fortune" of her husband be related to members of ruling houses.

In addition, her and sisters marriages were completely arranged by her father new money. The daughter got the aristocratic/noble surname, and the husband is benefited with some millions. In high society cycles is relatively common it happen. Fortunately her marriage to Pavlos worked, despite of her sisters arragement have been a flop.

For the rest, she is a very elegant woman, well dressed, tasteful and exudes wealth. And I think she can be a fun person to get around.

Just the opposite here. When she first married Pavlos I thought she was almost a caricature of a pretentious and precious nouveau riche, in love with the idea of becoming a Royal princess. The infamous Vanity Fair article where she and her sisters were posing as latter day Edith Wharton heiresses/socialites was just cringe worthy.

But now I find her elegant(though not as impeccably dressed as before), warm, fun to be around and very approachable if her social media presence is anything to go by.

She is also a successful and hardworking businesswoman who has raised five apparently well-adjusted kids and maintained a successful marriage...in fact the ONLY one of the three spectacularly married Miller sisters to have done so.

There is a lot to admire about Princess Pavlos, imo.

I must admit I didn´t give a dime on that marriage. As far as I can remember Michael Jackson married Lisa M. Presley around the same time and I gave them a longer chance!
The more amazing that it still works. (Besides: the only marriage of the royal year 1995 that still lasts...) Elena Spain, my brother, Joachim Denmark, Stephanie Monaco - all over....
First I thought she was keen on becoming a princess or even a crown-princess. But we learned that she doesn´t seem to be interested at all in Greece or so. And Pavlos? To me he sometimes appears like a little simple and henpecked.
I still have no idea what their secret is. Maybe it´s LOVE....

Oh, I understand. First time she gave me the impression of being a woman who bought a title and was using the prince as if it were a toy. When I read interviews with her, I thought "Oh, how appearances can be deceiving, she is an intelligent woman, and seems to be cool, also she's a really caring mother, sister and wife."

After watching a little more, I realized she used the title, which no longer exists, to promote herself and her "perfect butter family", appear in magazines, and use for self-centered reasons.

I mean, look at things that Greece is going through. But what she does is post on instagram photos showing the life of luxury she has. Like a tacky noveau riche, she seems to be saying "give cake to them." I'm not saying she has the obligation to help Greece, because it is a country that literally did not want them. But I think it pretentious she using the title princess just promote herself, you know?

In addition, her daughter is a copy of Paris Hilton. I do not see anything special that girl. And I come across stories like this: Princess Olympia of Greece - fashion's newest 'It' girl | Daily Mail Online I was just happy to see the comentaries that people people didn't digest it.

Probably they paid for it. Also, I'm sure the thousands of followers on her and her daughter instagram , she bought. Yes, there are websites to buy followers, and this is something common among companies, and some lower famous people.

I say it because compared with actual famous people, and members of reigning royal houses, the ratio of the numbers do not make sense. She is at best a micro celebrity, and probably a well-connected wealthy woman, but there are other rich women like her, and the number is absurd.

I work with press relations, and know several celebrities and specially, wanna be celebrities who do it. Pay to appear in newspapers, buy followers, hire photographers to appear beautiful in pictures, pay to their song plays in the radio etc ...
She just being a socialite pretending being a princess, it is very obvious what what she does...

Also, she has good things, it's not the end of the day. She being a working businesswoman is really nice of her. I hope her children get her example, even if they don't seem so. And think she's beautiful, I agree, she used to me more elegant a long ago, now sometimes she has a matron look. Nothing against, and anyway, I still think she's fashionable.

@mandy187, I fully agree with you except one point. MC Is much classier than her daughter. O do not understand why this girl became a such low level Paris Hilton pale copycat. She is rich, not ugly and a real Princess by blood, related to the highest European Royal families. She does not need to behavior like this. What a fail for CP Paul and Mc.

Well, the girl is 19 or so? She attended a few fashion shows and posed for a few magazines. But other than that it seems she just started university. Hardly Paris Hilton at this point, fortunately. Let's hope it stays that way.

I agree so much with both.
