Lovely pictures, thank you. I read last summer that MC would open a shop in Paris in september, in the VIIIe Arrondissement. Maybe next week, just before fashion week in Paris... I read this in a French parenting magazine called Milk, apparently they met her, but I didn't read any other thing about it since... Any other clue ???

I had once read (and somewhat believed) that MC's marriage to Pavlos was arranged; Mr. Miller was looking for an aristocrat to marry his daughter and King Constantine was looking for a wealthy bride for his son and heir. Vallah! Match made in "heaven". However, I'm starting to think that there is real love there between MC and her Prince. It's nice to think there is at least.

I don't think Mr Miller was looking for an aristo. His wife might have been, but I think he would have been happy with a hard-working American man from a good (meaning old, the Millers are new) family who he could possibly train to take over his business interests or something.

Constantine probably either wanted money or breeding. Even though the Greek monarchy is dead and buried, whatever "chances" might have existed for a restoration (none to none, IMO, but still) died when his heir came home with a woman who looks like she wears the pants (and buys them) in the marriage.

I don't think MC would have been pushed to marry a man she didn't love, and I don't think her father would have let her get pushed into a match she didn't want.

Pavlos comes off like an arrogant doormat, though, so he might have been pushed all day long, or he might have been taught from birth to look for money or breeding and simply fell in love with whoever possessed one or the other.

I agree with some of the above comments and disagree with others. True, both Pavlos and MC were probably encouraged to marry money or to marry well, but what family doesn't encourage that? I live in a middle class neighborhood in Long Island, where the average income is $80,000.(That's the low end, which is not a lot of money to live here in Long Island.) There are business owners, lawyers, doctors and executives that live here. When I listen to their conversations, they always have great plans for their children. None of them hope that their children marry for love, but instead they hope their children marry other lawyers or CEO's. This is coming from the middle class so I can imagine how the upper class are.

And what is wrong with that? Love is important, but so is living well. In addition, I agree that MC was probably not pressured to marry Pavlos. She looks like she is honestly in love with him. She also looks like the type that is independent and a free spirit. I remember in one interview she stated that she nearly drove her parents crazy because she wanted to drop out of her boarding school and that her parents spent a lot of money because she wanted to take lessons and be a singing star. The fact that she married in her late 20's also tells me that she was not rushing to marry well, but that rather she was searching for happiness rather than conformity.

As for Pavlos looking like an arrogant doormat. I don't think he does. He looks arrogant, but he also seems very mysterious and self-assured. That's why I'm crazy about him. I've stated before that I wish he would interview more rather than always hearing from MC.

I think that if MC wasn't happy she would have divorced Pavlos a long time ago like her sisters did, their marriage looks functional, they both look well and happy; love isn't always about high passions and googly eyes, the everlasting kind of love is about respect, partnership and sharing and I think they have that, not to mention 4 beautiful kids and a great life, what else could you ask for?

I've read that the Miller sisters were looking for wealthy husbands with good backgrounds,also.Marie Chantal appears to be very happy with Pavlos;she has a beautiful family,a business,an active social life...lovely houses...it does look like this couple respects each other.And it's been often quoted that Pavlos chose the right sister;Marie Chantal really does look like she's enjoying her life with him.

Love your 'doormat' comment. You may be quite right on that one. I think you also make a valid point that MC isn't so much the calculated climber here, Pavlos, however, is.

I remember distinctly the headline in a local Dutch paper the day these two married: It literally read: "Arm koningskind trouwt rijk meisje"
Which translates as: "Impoverished king's son marries rich girl", and that is what it is.
I do agree with the consensus that they're happy together though.

It must be rather hard for this beautiful to always be taunt with comments about their reasons for marriage - reasons such as monetary gains, titles, etc..

I personally don't think that they married for any other reasons that they love each other and found in each other the ideal partner for life. The fact that they're still together, have 4 kids says alot for their marriage.

Look at MC's sisters marriage....

I agree with you Eliza. I think people who know nothing of them speculate about their reasons for marrying. But the reality is that they have 4 children a appear to be very happy.

The dress she wore with the horizontal ruffles and the tie around the neck is the same one she wore to Gustav's party with the little ermine stole over it when she first cut her hair. I don't ever recall seeing her wear a dress twice before, shoes, but not a dress. Sort of neat I think.

I just received the November issue of House & Garden magazine (the well lived life issue) and guess who's on the cover. CP Marie-Chantal and daughter Olympia. Inside is a look at her London home. But there are also some pics of the children and a look at some of MC's art collection. Also, there is a kind of MC's favorite things (ala Oprah) with some family tidbits like...the family like board games and MC says she and Olympia are the family champs. Unfortunately I dont have a scanner so cant provide the article or pics. But its should be on the newstands today. I recommend picking it up.
