MC's youngest child was obviously photohshopped in on the 2005 card. Grandpa's hands aren't anywhere near him and he appears to be just standing in his lap. . .too funny.

I'm pleased you liked it. I think it is just the kind of thing to look at when you are a bit depressed or stressed by anything. Such incarnation of family values through hardships just keeps you going, I think. I agree with Aphrodite 26, last year's card is not the best. Let's wait for the new one...

You are right sita780, it's so nice to see a family like this. they're still together even though this family has gone through alot, it's very sad when people live far away from there country,they are a beatifull family thanks.miaamor

There was a nice photo of QA-M on her new boat with the grandkids in a magazine somewhere. I wonder if that'll be this years photo.

Does anyone know if MC and Pavlos and Alexia and Carlos take separate photos for their X-Mas cards to their friends and if so where they can be found

I saw 2 cards of MC&Pavlos family : one in 2002 with all family sitting on the grass, with the Greek flag jumpers. The other in 2005 with the 4 kids wearing angel wings (I prefered the 1st card. The other was too artificial to my taste. But you surely need a professionnal photographer and a studio to manage with 4 little lively models like this...). I don't know how to find them now, I saw them on several boards.
So we can reasonably assume that Alexia and Pavlos do their own cards each year. Nice tradition.

There is a directory on the Greek Royal website here. Select "Christmas Card Photos".

2. 1997 at the Mentor Foundation gala evening in New York
3. Group picture at the gala evening
4. The couple in Denmark in 1997

Great links, Iceflower! MC and Pavlos were certainly more smiley back then. Pavlos looks like he's lost weight in recent years as compared to these photos. I can't believe it's been nearly 10 years since the NY gala! Time is flying.

Do you think MC's not as smiley because the novelty of being a princess has worn off? Or because they're no longer in New York where having a social life and being photographed seem very important?

There's no way we can ever really know. It may just be the luck of the photographs that are submitted to the public. I would hope there's no underlying reason, like she is unhappy. With four children now, she just might be preoccupied with her family. Or maybe there are issues in her personal life that we're not privy to that have her distracted. Hopefully the smiles will return.

Did she actually graduate? I've seen that she attended university in New York, but never that she actually completed a degree.
