Apparently the letters of King Constantine I to princess Paola Ostheim have been published:

Mmm...the letter seems to suggest they had a romantic attachment or at the very least, a very deep bond.
Real princesses always wear sleeves so why do we all go for strapless?

The grandparents of Constantine II and his sisters and I belive queen Sofia of Spain was actually named after her grandmother.

yes it was, it was one tradition in Greece. And the Crown Prince of Kings Constantine- sofia was George as his grandfather the King George. Princess Irene was born in wartime, it was customary to put the name of Irene, because it means peace.

Constantine I of Greece was named after his mother's father, the Grand Duke Constantine of Russia. It was also a name of great significance for the Greeks and those patriots who had espoused the Megali Idea of a united Greek people led from Constantinople.
