Is there not a general understanding that King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie had some turbulent years in their marriage after being forced to leave Greece?

Nigel Dempster's gossip column in the Daily Mail had a lot to say about this but even he was forced to retract a piece he wrote about Anne Marie leaving Constantine and taking the children with her in the 1970s.

It would be surprising if the marriage had not been having problems in this period as it was a very trying time for both of them, they however seem to have worked through the issues as their two younger children born in the 1980s would attest.

Is it just me or do others also consider the situations between the siblings very different?

Juan Carlos and Sofia are openly only married in name: they did not celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary -as their wasn't much to celebrate- and Juan Carlos was seen with mistresses until at least very recently.

On the other hand, Konstantinos and Anne Marie had their problems in their marriage early on but they seem to have overcome them (see for example the births of Theodora and Phillippos as WreathOfLaurels already mentioned) and seem to be a couple that is devoted to each other these days: and they DID celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with their children in Greece!

Or am I missing something?

They could be truly devoted to each other, or they could be devoted but live mainly separate lives, or they could be married in name only but want to keep up appearances so still come together for special occasions. They have the resources to do what they want and, unlike JC and Sofia, their lives are private except for when they choose to seek the spotlight.
