Yes, she looks wonderful. But with lots of help at home she will have time to take good care of herself too!

It is much easier for MC to look good after having four children. She has help and plenty of money for private clubs and trainers. She does not have the every day stresses that most working women have no matter how nice she may be.:)

Yeah, it's sad that rich and pretty aren't always together!:( Horrible in the case of royal families though.

I really don't see what all the fuss is about the Greek RF, they are just people with useless dilusions of grandeur.

They will never be restored to the Greek throne and they are not serving the people of Greece in any way, so why are they titled "of Greece"?

They don't deserve these titles and shouldn't have them.

The majority of Greek people don't know what the point of this is, why so they want to cash in on their ancestors achievements? Can't they find recognition on their own?

They use de Grecia (of Greece) as their last name and they are still part of the Danish royal family (I guess they are in line of succession)

No they are not in line to the danish throne. But they have the title anyway.

It forgives, but who is princess Elisabeth? I don't know a Danish princess called Elisabeth

The next one to the succession rights, after the Benedikte, would be her son Gustav, right?

I adore MC's style. She has such grace and a unstated confidence about her. It's too bad, of course others may disagree, MC doesn't use status to promote more issues to the public like other Crown Princesses and Princesses of the world. However, I do understand that she is a member of a dethroned royal family, but I still think she could accomplish more royal duties like the others instead of attending couture shows. I also realize she participates in smaller charity events too so I guess that counts as well.

Question to all: What are the chances of the GRF ever regaining the throne in Greece? Slim to none or 50/50? I think it would be interesting to see if this would happen and the outcome of it.


:)

HH Princess Elizabeth is the daughter of Prince Knud of Denmark and Princess Caroline Mathilde, who was born a Princess of Denmark (they were 1st cousins). Prince Knud was the second son of King Christian X and brother of Margrethe's father, King Frederik IX.

Princess Elizabeth was born in 1935 and is unmarried. She attends all the major Danish Royal Family celebrations and events.

The Danish succession laws are quite detailed and include provisions as to Danish citizenship and periods of residence. My understanding is that Princess Benedikte's children do not qualify.

Also of note is that Princess Elizabeth's two brothers, Ingolf and Christian, are not in the list of succession because they forfeited their rights on their "unequal" marriages in 1968 and 1971 respectively. They also had to renounce their titles of Prince of Denmark, Highness, and become Counts af Rosenborg. If Frederik IX had not changed the succession laws to allow his eldest daughter to succeed then Prince Knud would have become King, followed by his eldest son Ingolf. Needless to say there was some resentment by Knud at his family's demotion.

Benedikte's children were in line to the throne at their births, but they had to be educated in Denmark to retain their rights. All three were educated in Germany, and when her daughters applied for Danish citizenship a few years back, the government decided that they lost their rights sometime around when they started school. Gustav has retained his German citizenship so it never came up for him, but presumably, he lost his rights when he started school, like his sisters.
