the autobiography of King Constantine I imagine will be translated soon. he speaks about rumors that created the Greek press about him.
Constantino speaks of the Greek tabloids and rumors that they created. This part of his autobiography, I liked a lot me
Constantine was very shy and little daring with women. I have a friend who knew constantine in person, at this time, he was related to sports and Greek Olympic Committee and he always said that the characteristic of Constantine is that he was very polite, and very shy, he always says that the Constantine that defined the press was not the real constantine, the Greek press had created a character that really did not corresponded to Constantine real.
When I read the autobiography of King Constantine, I liked that he spoke about this rumors of greek tabloids about Alice and others..
Constantine says that he was never boyfriend and he had not a relationship with the Alice, everything started because at an event in Athens in 1960 , he greeted to the actress, and the press began to create one gossip....
he account in his biography many anecdotes of this gossip,rumor... one affects a Minister, the Minister (not now remember the name) asked audience to King Pavlos, and King Pavlos thought he was coming to talk about the Cyprus problem
, and he was very worried
, when the minister came to Real palace, he asked to king Pavlos(King pavlos thought that it was by cyprus problems), " When will the wedding be held?" and King Pavlos said, "what?", the Minister said "constantine and Alice" he had read it in press,
to King Pavlos gave a fit of laughter
, and had to apologize and leave the office,
because it was impolite,
when it spent the giggles, he returned to the office and had to explain to minister that it were not true,
that it was gossip of tabloid , it was what people wanted to hear .... King Pavlos said to Constantine that the minister was embarrassed, but disappointed.
it was normal that taboides created this rumors with all the famous woman with who he spoke , i remember Liz Taylor, she was received by the Prince of Greece, was born gossip of photo, but then gossip is lost in time and the taboides turned not talk about it. Constantine was amused by some rumors that were very entertaining story
that was created by the press, was like a movie script, however, after the minister's visit
I think that he stopped liking that created those stories.
It's funny, when the European press, such as the Swedish or Norwegian publishing that Prince Constantine could be the boyfriend of one of the sisters of Carl Gustaf , I think it was Desiree, constantino traveled a lot to Sweden, the Swedish press published even the hotel he went to many dances with her, and in Europe the press spoke about this, the Greek tabloids, avoided speaking of European princesses, and especially Swedish.
There is a thought of Constantine that he has the feeling of the Greek tabloids of the time created these rumors to try to create the impression that the prince was an idle man, who did not worked .... he laments,
it is sad to read and hear Constantine to say that he did not had adolescence, he did not enjoyed of his teens because he did not have it. and when friends came over the weekend or going to parties, yet, he always had been granted a function, a duty, his friends had a free weekend, but he still had to go to military practice or a trip, or receive someone.
This is quite sad when you read these affirmations of king
, because it's like he's trying to tell you, that to be Prince is not lucky, it's like you're losing your life for others people than ever you will recognize your effort and sacrifice.
Prince Michael said in an article this very thing, that he never wanted to be the prince of Greece, his renounced wing sucesion made to him happy
, because according Michael, he admired the Prince Constantine, his cousin had no private life, was always subject to one schedule, always from dawn until dusk they were led by an schedule, they were not free
and adds Michael, the Greek press never recognized the King and Prince their work and effort
, they only knew insulting, and represent them as privileged.... He admires King Constantine but he preferred to be free. Michael admires them because he says they were born in a sense of duty, which does not allow them to give it up. He admires to them, he doesn ´t like to be Prince.
Memories of King Constantine should be published in all countries with monarchy, so that people know how hard it is to dedicate your life to others, and how hard it is that the press wants to represent you as if you were an famous...
If King Constantine would be reborn, he would choose to be an actor
and he would return to marry Ana Maria
, because she is the woman of his life since he saw to her in a magazine
and his father told him, "you're crazy ..."
(he was ahead of his time
,) he went to see her, but she ignored him, took time to convince to her
He says very nice things about Ana Maria
, he will marry with his wife
, which is the best of his life
, and when he saw in that magazine her he thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world
and he still thinks she is the most beautiful woman in the world
After reading the autobiography of King, and see everything he says of his youth, and read interviews in which he claims, If he were born again he would return to marry with his wife Ana Maria
and read in article of michael, he married with one woman greek(rich), he says that the best thing he did was give up the succession because he preferred his freedom to be prince of Greece.
I think it can be said that if the throne of Greece had been saved by a marriage with a Greek woman selected by the Greek tabloids, then the answer to all these people that think it, is in the King's autobiography and Michael of geece, and IS:
ENJOY YOUR Republic.
