Christmas celebrations like the one in 2006 are the absolute exception! IMO it only happened because Ex-Queen Anne-Marie turned 60 last year and Queen Margrethe offered this kind of Christmas festivities like some present to her sister. (The same happened in Grasten: Usually, except of 2006, only the royal family and the Berleburgs have some holidays there) The last bigger Christmas gathering of this kind was in 2000 when Queen Ingrid had died.

Article in February 2008 Vanity Fair

I haven't seen the article yet, but the Vanity Fair website reports that the February 2008 issue contains an article on Pavlos and MC. Here's the description:

A ROYAL FAMILY AFFAIR
Crown Prince Pavlos and Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece may never get a throne, but they seem to have everything else, plus four towheaded kids. Bob Colacello crashes the couple’s vacation in Porto Heli to learn the secret formula. Photographs by Jonathan Becker.

Update: I got my copy of Vanity Fair in the mail tonight and had a chance to read the story. It's pretty interesting, discussing how Pavlos and MC grew up, what they're doing in their respective businesses, how Pavlos feels about being a royal without a throne, and the "near death" experience MC had when Odysseas was born.

I did spot one big factual error, though -- it refers to Queen Frederika as Pavlos' maternal grandmother, rather than his paternal one. He apparently was very close to her and had a dream of her talking to him a few years ago.

all in all,both MC and Pavlos come off well.

I pickled up the new Vanity Fair at Borders yesterday. While the article's pictures were interesting, the rest of the article wasn't very. It's basically a condensed version of their lives/histories. I wonder how accurate it is though because they refered to Queen Frederica as Pavlos' maternal grandmother, but King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia of Spain as QF's son-in law and daughter. Wouldn't that then make QF Pavlos' paternal grandmother? Great fact-checking!

I walked past the window of the "Marie-Chantal" children's wear shop on Spefsippou Street, yesterday. I was amazed by the discordance between quality and prices, a shirt costing around 180 USD. The shop was closed even though all other stores on the street were open.

It´s funny: Pavlos and MC married around the same date when Michael Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley. And I always thought they would fast become divorced but noch Michael and Lisa Marie.....

That's true! Pavlos's maternal grandmother was the late Queen Ingrid
Queen Frederika was in fact his paternal grandmother

Thanks for the links, Kirstengrafin. Looks like some great photos. I can't believe how big Konstantinos is getting.

Looks like an intresting article. Also the pictures theyve used, are they new? havent seen some of them before. Love the one of MC looking at camera on the long table and the kids in the pool. Pitty we dont get to see them often.

Did anyone see or read the article about Pavlos and MC, in the latest issue of Vanity Fair? It is very good and it shows them as real human beings, loving parents and MC as a woman who works and is expanding her work in childrens´clothing. Beautiful pictures too of the whole family.

I've always thought that they are one of the best-looking families. They seem very happy, too. I might go out and buy a Vogue just to see the article!

I was also a little confused by the article. They talk like it was love-at-first-sight, but then they also mention an arranged marriage. More messed up facts?

Thanks for the pics. I think the title is right : MC made Pavlos blossom. It is obvious from photographs (just see the series from their engagement). When you read the article with Pavlos' souvenirs, you can understand why he needed someone to help him see a better side of life (the pressure at school with his name crossed on copies etc ; very interesting). Apparently there is some more afterwards about how MC lost so much blood when OK was born that she nearly died... all very new to me I must say.

They are an interesting modern Royal (no Country) family. Actually I have never read anything bad about either of them. Haven't they purchased a lovely home in Greece ??????

The article mentioned they were renting a house. I'm not sure if they want to buy property (I wouldn't after the gov't took it the first time!).
