You need to remember the Queen is bound to act on the advice of her ministers as a constitutional monarch. The British government was adamantly against allowing Constantine or his family to settle in the UK. They only did it out of respect for the Queen's ties to them through Prince Philip.

Quote:
Constantine went into exile with a trust fund from his family that established their residence in London. Anne-Marie also has money from her trust funds, but Constantine made at least one bad investment in the late 70s (something to do with automobiles) and lost a lot.
Constantine had no money when he went into exile. The Greek Royal Family was always quite poor and relied on the state's support.

Quote:
The Greek shipping giants (not including Onassis, who died in 1975) stepped in after the Shah lost power (1979) and couldn't fund them anymore, but between going into exile and the Shah's own exile, the Greek royals were funded by the Shah -- not EIIR.
The Greek shipping families took care of Constantine with a wink and a nod from the Colonels and the military junta who ruled Greece after they exiled him. They wanted him to stay quiet and mind his own business.

Quote:
And the Danes don't seem especially helpful. When Anne-Marie thought of leaving her husband because of the infidelity, she was told by her family that her place was with her husband. I can't see a family that would say that as being one that would bankroll her family.
I highly doubt Anne-Marie ever considered leaving Constantine. It simply would not be in her nature. She was born a royal princess and was a Queen. She understood her duty as a royal consort.

They admitted to having "crises" in their marriage in an interview about a decade ago. Constantine was rumoured to have had an affair with Empress Farah Pahlavi, but I've never seen confirmation of that affair. But there were infidelities, and Constantine even gave Prince Charles a tie pin that was some sort of ancient symbol for male fertility or infidelity in the mid80s.

Constantine only had to work out a tax arrangement with the British government. He didn't need their permission to live there. Nor did he need hers.

Constantine had a trust fund (not large mind you, from his parents) that he took with him into exile. The Greeks aren't giving him money to keep the government happy. They're giving him money because he's a friend and he needs the help. Constantine has never stayed quiet about his exile, even during the junta.

Being royal born doesn't make someone immune to getting fed up. Sofia tried to leave her husband and she was born royal, too. After the exile, they admitted their marriage went through a very rocky patch in the 1970s, and she had to be reminded of her duty to her husband and children by her family.

I don't think that Anne-Marie ever considered a legal seperation or a divorce, but it is quite common knowldedge that she left Constantine for a significant period after they went into exile. She and the children stayed with her mother, Queen Ingrid in Denmark.

MC is 5'2'' to 5'3'' at the most. She is petite as are all of the Miller sisters.
A friend is a make up artist and she has seen the sisters in person at some of the fashion shows.

Yes, Pavlos towers over her, even when she's wearing heels. Very sweet pics of the baby, too!

She and her husband are wonderful, involved parents.

I give her a lot of credit. She does not have to work and yet still managed to create a career path for herself.

Inauguration festivities in Monaco

On November 17th there will be the inauguration festivities for Prince Albert II. in Monaco. On Franco Iberian Royals Message Board was already announced that Haakon and Mette-Marit are invited and will attend.
What about the Greek royals? Does anybody know whether some of them are invited or which other royalty will come?

Pavlos and Marie-Chantal attended a gala at the american embassy in Athens yesterday. I had an invitation as well...They make a lovely couple. Pavlos is really tall and very charming! I had the chance to talk for a while with Marie-Chantal about her store in Athens. She was very polite and she definitely has class although she doesn't look stunning or anything like that. As I said before, they make a very nice couple, I enjoyed seeing them together, they really seem to fit.
