First, I would most respectfully request that you avoid writing in caps.
There are four (4) communique's since August 26, 2007 and the exact inofrmation is as follows:
The first, dated Sunday, August 26, 2007, is in the form of an address by the former king (in the first person, in plural). At the end of the third paragraph, he says, "Επιπλέον, η οικογένειά μου και εγώ, θα καταβάλουμε το συμβολικό ποσό των 200,000, σε λογαριασμό που θα ανακοινωθεί από τους αρμόδιους κρατικούς φορείς." [Μoreover, my family and I shall contribure the symbolic amount of 200,000 to the account to be announced by the appropriate state agencies.] And he was referring to the account that the Government was planning to open in order for all, be it private citizens or organizations from all over Greece and the World to contribute.

THE ANA MARIA FOUNDATION COLLABORATION WITH ORGANIZATIONS OF FIRE EXTINGUISHING AND RESCUE OF PEOPLE
The Greek Royal Family - News & Media
The second, communique', dated Tuesday, August 28, 2007 is in the third person. In there, it is quoted in the fifth and last paragraph, "Όπως ανακοίνωσε στις 26 Αυγούστου, ο βασιλεύς Κωνσταντίνος προσφέρει 200,000 στο ταμείο υπέρ των παθώντων [sic]." [As he announced on August 26, king Constantine is offering 200,000 to the account for the affected].

-

I EXPLAIN IT
EVER FOUNDATIONS ARE LEGAL ORGANIZATIONS.THE LAWS SAY THAT FOUNDATIONS ONLY CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE GROUPS OF PERSONS
EXAMPLE:

I CAN CONTRIBUTE WITH 200000 EUROS TO HELP TO STEFANOS BUT THE FOUNDATION ONLY CONTRIBUTE TO GROUPS PERSONS, ORGANIZATIONS, VILLAGES .......IT CAN NOT CONTRIBUTE TO STEFENOS. IT CAN CONTRIBUTE TO A VILLAGE, A ORGANIZATION....POLICE
THE THIRD MESSAGER SPEAKS OF THE ANA MARY FOUNDATION WORK TO DISTRIBUTE THE HELP
THE FOUNDATIONS HELPS TO FIREMEN AND ORGANIZATIONS OF RESCUE
IN THE FIRST IT SPEAK ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTE OF CONSTANTINE TO VICTIMS, AND IN SECOND SPEAK ABOUT FOUNDATION.
cONSTATINO CAN CONTRIBUTE TO PERSONS BUT THE FOUNDATION CAN NOT CONTRIBUTE TO PERSONS IT CAN TO ORGANIZATIOS OR GROUPS OF PERSONS AS VILLAGES, FIREMEN...IT IS THE LAW.
IN THE FOUNDATIONS TO CONTRIBUTE IT MUST FOLLOW A PROCESS
THE GROUPS THAT ASK FOR IT HAVE TO PRESENT A PROJECT ........
IT IS THE FOUNDATIONS
In the third communique', dated Friday, August 31, 2007 it is announced that on that day, king Constantine and queen Anne-Marie visited the Zaharo area, the Makistos village and the Kaiafa lake.

The fourth communique', dated Tuesday, September 18, 2007 is a summary report on the three-year activity of the Queen Anne-Marie Foundation. In there, it is explicitly quoted that the Foundation focuses on four programs (and I quote):
1. "Ερευνα, σε πανελλαδικό επίπεδο" [Research at national level],
2. "Την ανάπτυξη συνεργασιών με εθελοντικές οργανώσεις" [Development
of collaboration with volunteer organizations],
3. "Την ενίσχυση εκπαιδευτικών προγραμμάτων" [Support for educational
programs],
4. "Την αρωγή των εθελοντικών αυτών σωματείων, με την δωρεά
εξοπλισμού. Η αγορά του εκάστοτε υλικού γίνεται από το Ίδρυμα Άννα-
Μαρία. Δεν δίνονται χρηματικά ποσά απ ευθείας στις οργανώσεις" [The
support of these volunteer organizations with donation of equipment.
The purchase of equipement is done by the Anne-Marie Foundation. No
funds shall be given directly to the organizations].

Therefore, as I quoted earlier, it appears that the king's pledge to donate funds is independent of the Foundation's activities, since the latter does not donate funds directly. And a final comment. Charitable organizations and foundations in Greece, are certainly allowed to also donate funds in the form of scholarships, grants etc.
What do you mean by "stefenos" or "stefanos"? There is no such word in English or Greek. Could you kindly explain?

Anne-Marie continues to have the most enticing smile in the World, better that ever, in fact! In contrast, King Constantine has aged badly - he used to be a handsome and elegant man. Now he looks "worn out" like the royal consort of Denmark, how sad.

Can you believe the China olympics are 9 months away?Constantine will be busy again as a member of the international olympic comittee....
I agree with Phillipe that ann-marie looks lovely.Constantine looks like he has aged a bit more but any Greek who would have to live away from greece for that long,under those circumstances and be at the receiving end of so much spite would age...some would lose their sanity as well...(at least,he hasn't).

What are Anne-Marie's interests/hobbies?

I've read a lot about her family's various interests -- Constantine's sailing, Benedictke's horses, Margrethe's art, etc. -- but I don't think I've ever seen anything about what Anne-Marie's hobbies are. Does she have some special interests? How does she spend her time?

I used to have the impression that she was busy raising her children while Constantine was working on various projects, but now that they're adults, I wonder why her priorities and work are.

This is a 48 minute documentary by TVF International (2004)
"CONSTANTINE. A KING'S STORY".
It was on TV also a few month ago.
The AlJazeera two-part video has noting to do with this.
King Constantine & Queen Anne Marie show the Tatoi Royal Palace and the Royal Cemetary for the first time. This documentary is an intimate portrait of the workings of a monarch in exile, his life in London, his interaction with other royal families and the role he will have now that he is comeing to Greece many times every year.
I have it on DVD

Regards

Thank you for the link. I was not aware of this video before, and it was very interesting to watch. I was hoping that the video would include interviews and commentary from his family members.

Its the very first time I see them both at such an event. Maybe they were invited for some other reason to Paris by Benedikte or Alexandra (who seems to live in Paris with her family as far as I know) and decided to attend together with Pavlos and MC.

the Designer Of The Wedding Dress Of The Queen Ann Marie, Was Valentino?
I Think That The Designer Was Valentino.
Valentino Is Friend Of The Royal Family Because He Is Invited To The Celebrations Of Them.
When Ann Marie Was Princess And Then Queen, She Dressed Of Valentino And Chanel

I know that Valentino designs many of the gowns that Marie-Chantal wears, including her wedding gown. I did not know that he also designed clothes for the Queen. They are so lucky! I would love to have clothes and gowns created for me by one of the top designers in the world.
