That's a bunch of PR from what I've heard. Pavlos is more like Mr. Mom now taking care of his ever-growing family while Marie is moving and shaking in London.

Since the Miller family paid Constantine a dowry of $20 million when Pavlos married Marie-Chantel, I doubt Pavlos has to work for a living at this point. Marie-Chantel has a trust fund worth $100 million and is all set for life.

It is a time-honoured tradition among royal families to pay a dowry upon marriage. Especially when the royal family in question is not rich and the prospective bride is.

I think that's absolutely disgusting if it's true. Just because your child marries it is NO justification to take money from people earned or inherited. It is WRONG to do such a thing.

If I may give an opinion, as far as I know trust is important in business, especially in finance. Thus having well known names with you is important. Which does not mean you can have any name of completely irrelevant people in your list of partners. I think this is his job, and it is appropriate for the (very) good education you mention, and also appropriate given the special connections he has.
Do not forget the mention about R Miller...very official business connections between them all...I hope this will make sarcastic commentators think twice (without offending anyone).

I thought Pavlos was partners in a hedge fund company with Alexander von Furstenburg (probably managing their wives money).

I have read in a magazine that he was working in a hedge funds company in New York.I dont know if he is still working because i believe he has moved from New York to England with the intention of living permetently in Greece.

If you work in hedge funds, you only need a really good mobile phone and a fast internet connection. Many hedge funds managers spend much of their year on "holiday" with their families in the Caribbean, because they get up in the morning, check the stocks, hang out, check the stocks at lunch, hang out some more, check the stocks a final time when the market is about to close. They don't have stockbroker jobs like the ones who go into an office everyday because their office is their computer.

No one knows for a fact that the Millers paid a dowry. Constantine isn't living any better post-1995 than he was before. He received 1 million GBP a year from rich friends, but those friends have traditionally been the Greek shipping magnates, like Niarchos, Livanos, Onassis, Latsis, etc.

i can't imagine living in a world where people pay you huge sums of money just because of your name and you spend your life lolly gagging around. can one be happy doing this? i'm the type of person who must do something physical and help people to find happiness. i can't imagine laying and playing in the sun all day makes one happy.

It does seem like a pretty shallow life, the way you put it. Hopefully, it's not really the case. Hopefully.

of course if you're raised to live that way and you know no other way then i suppose it can work for you.

Who paid whom when Carlos Morales married Alexia?

alot has been said of Prince Pavlos ability or lack of ability as a banker etc...

Personally, i feel that despite the history of his family, the unfortunate baggage and shadow he's had to lived with, he's managed to do hold his head up well and has alot to be proud off.

Let's give him due credit - he may be very good at what he does - a hedge fund banker - afterall it's not easy to graduate from Georgetown Uni and beside do you really think intelligent rich people will simply give away $$ to a "ex-prince" for the sake of some name dropping???? The richer a person is the tighter they are with their money.

Pavlos has held many jobs,all well-paying jobs in shipping or finances,but MC's money has helped.The rich,especially the aristocratic rich have always had an eye out on money,property,connections,when looking for "proper" marriage partners. Earlier this year,I read about an English Lord who is advertising in American papers for American relatives,with money,to move to England and become his heir.He said that it takes money to run the estate and only relatives with the proper financial backing would be considered!

According to the article in the February 2008 issue of Vanity Fair, Pavlos is still working as a hedge fund manager. The article stated that he travelled to New York once a month for work. I think it is great that he is still working, despite his wealth.
