This is kind of cool, because isn't Queen Sofia herself Greek (born Sophia of Greece and Denmark)? I wonder if she's looking forward to it, and if we'll get to hear her speak Greek.

How was Sofia received in Greece? I was wondering because she is the deposed king's sister and I have heard that he is not held in high regard in Greece.

no it was a spur of the moment thing, she just descided to drop by and then they just threw a programme together

I have never heard that Sofia is not popular in Greece, she is faultless, no one can say anything against her (am half Greek)
