That picture was taken before her marriage, so no, it's not Joachim.

They were -and still are- indeed a very beautiful and matching couple.
However, our people decided that they prefered an elected president rather than a king to be the symbol of our nation and unity.
Unfortunately the referendum took place 9 years before I was born; with that astonishing and lovely people making up the greek royal family (excluding Marie Chantal:p), do not bother to ask what I would had voted for!

You don´t like the Crownprincess?
Anyway, I am still so sorry for their Majesties to have lost their throne! And you are right about them being a beautiful couple. I will never understand the greek people for voting against the monarchy - even if it´s been a terrible and tough time during the Junta.
Sometimes I dream about King Konstantinos still being head of state: He´d be over 40 years reigning by now! And what beautiful and joyous occasions
we would have being seen, not only family-ones but all those state visits with the king and Queen Anne-Marie as hosts in the royal palace in Athens... Sometimes I think I will never fully accept thet they have been mistreated like this by destiny.

Well, never say never!
I mean, 50 years ago nobody in Greece would imagine not having a King and a royal family, but that happened! Of course Constantine for me is still officially the King, since he has not abdicated and the initiate abolition of the monarchy was done by an illegal military government, the Junta.
Maybe in twenty years or less, the people decide to make Nikolaos a king, and I think that would compensate TM for all they've gone through
Do not bother to ask why not Pavlos
Can you imagine Queen Mari Chantal of the Hellenes? Not in a thousand years!

Oh, the Queen looks more than amazing in the Greek traditional costumes; I did not know she used to wear them! I can also see HRH Irene in the 'amalia' costume!she's lovely!

The story is: When King Constantine asked to marry Anne-Marie, King Frederik asked konstantin to wait in an other room, while he was asking Queen Ingrid to come down. The problem was that it was the kings private toilet he was beeing locked in . King konstantin have told this story

Don't you think that Her Majesty could sooo easily become a top model, if she weren't a royal? She is absolutely astonishing!

Have just visited Corfu and had to see Mon Repos, it was very quiet and beautiful, too bad all the royal furniture is no longer there, instead the furniture of Frederick Adams who built the palace in the early 19th century. I stood on the verandah where constantine and anne-marie were photographed in 1964......
