Ex-king in former palace
Thirty-seven years after he was forced to flee Greece, the country’s last king was received yesterday in the central Athens mansion that for some six decades served as the royal palace.

The visit by Constantine, the 64-year-old former monarch, to the Irodou Atticou St. presidential palace — his first since 1967 — was kept secret at first, and was only confirmed in the afternoon by President Costis Stephanopoulos’s press office.

“President Stephanopoulos accepted a plea by former King Constantine to visit the presidential palace, accompanied by his wife and family members,” a statement said. “During the visit, the president met the former king.”

Presidential sources said Stephanopoulos had agreed on “humanitarian” grounds, and that no formalities had been observed.

Constantine fled Greece months after the 1967 coup. The monarchy was abolished following a 1974 plebiscite, after the fall of the junta. Two years ago, the European Court of Human Rights awarded compensation to Constantine for the seizure of his properties in Greece by the Greek government in 1994.

Did anyone in the UK see the documentry on Channel 5 just after christmas with Kirsty Young about King Constantine? The King who is not known for making documentries about his exile and life as an ex-ling agreed to make a film about the events leading upto the Junta and life after 1974. Although it was phrased he agreed to make the film, i suspect it might have been more of a request as there was considerable footage of him in Greece during the summer and his visits to Tatoi and it does tie in very nicley with his recent wedding aniversary and significant appearence in Greece during the Olympics. There were two sides shown, amoung the Kings supporters, his Private Secretary and the 'priest' (sorry i cant think of the greek name) of the Ortherdox Church in London were interviewed and a writer whos views were unclear as to whether they were dissmissing criticisms of the Kings Actions or simply constuctive critical analysis of events. I couldnt say that the documentry was overley outstanding as a peice of journalism and was not as informative of historical events either in favour, against or unbiased of the King and certainly came across more as a public relations activity on his part, than an anyalasis of his short reign, the junta and excile as Constantine maintained his silence on many questions and didnt say very much more than he has in the past which made me wounder what the point of it was. However it did provide an interesting hour of being "at home with the king."

I enjoyed hearing the King and Queen talk freeley about their feelings for Tatoi, and filling in little details such as pointing out the room where Pavlos was born for example, explaining a breif family history as they walked over the grave yard. It was nice to hear them both talk informaly, especialy as i had never heard Anne-Marie speak and was suprised that her english was better than her husbands whom seems to miss out the odd word occastionaly. However i do long for a televised documentry looking much further into the events of 1967 from all angles.

I hate to say this but KC annoys me. HE is always at every event. It is sad that he has no home to be a monarch over, but it get so annoying.

KC and AM are related to a lot of royals. They are also friends to many others. So his presence is expected. I would be very upset if he didn't attend events (weddings, funerals, etc.) and he was my relative or friend. KC and AM have made the best of their situations and I respect them for this.
By the way, AM looks elegant. I love her jewelry.

I agree with RERE here. Constantine is invited to all these events, not as Head of State or King, but as friends and family. There are many more people, including commoner's who have not social presidence that attend these functions as well, the reason Constantine takes a high profile is because he was the former Head of State and a known figour to report on. Emperess Farah of Iran and the Count of Paris are also often in attendence at various events. They are all invited beacuse they are either friends or family if not both of the host, irespective of their current or former positions.

Queen AM is an amazing person. In the interview, she says she is complety Greek and that Greece is her country even though she still remembers where she came from (meaning Denmark). I admire such a loyalty to a country that has been less than warm to her. Queen AM said that she raised her children to be very Greek. Nik was there and affirmed this by saying that when Alexia, Pavlos and Nik were bad, they were threatened by saying that they'd go to an English style school. :p
She also mentioned that Philippos is studying international relations at Georgetown like his brother CP Pavlos and his cousin CP Felipe of Spain did years ago. Theodora is studying theater at Brown.
