This Day on 06 February 1981 died Queen Frederica. Some pictures from Queen and from the funeral.

In the book of Queen Frederica 'Metron of Understanding "is described as follows crosstalk between King Pavlos and the same to a visit by India.

... "We returned Barefoot the Taj Mahal, one alongside the other. "We will build a monument like this when I die?" I asked joking Pavlo"

"Certainly not. As beautiful though is this monument, we we intend to stay under the open sky, in Tatoi, to enable the deer to walk over us and wildflowers n bloom in the spring. " "I agree," I replied ...

In the photo of the family kneeling at the graveside young Prince Felipe (now king) of Spain is the image of his nephew Felipe de Marichalar.

The Greece of that time is unrecognizeable with the Greece of today... No way that a PM Tsipras would ever wear a jacquet and tie!

What a solemn and beautiful video, An Ard Ri - thank you. It is this sort of richly meaningful contribution that keeps me coming back to this forum!

The main reason Karamanlis was reluctant for Freddy's funeral to take place in Greece was not about a fear of an upsurge of monarchist sentiment, the real concern was that A-Pap would try and exploit it as an election issue. Indeed, in October that year PASOK won the election - 1981 was also the year of Greece's entry into the EEC and many feared that a PASOK victory would put a stop to it.* Initially K vetoed the idea for the above reasons, and in the context of the time it was based on a perfectly legit desire to avoid any potential disorder. It was when King Juan Carlos requested permission that K's hand was forced on the subject and only said yes to avoid an international incident - something he resented greatly.

To put this in perspective, Prince Peter had died a year earlier and was eventually buried in Denmark when permission could not be secured for burial at Tatoi, meaning that his body was left in the morgue for a month before a burial could be arranged.

*In the end they did not.
