It seems like they are sent to the "less important" events while the Earl & Countess of Wessex go to the "more important" events such as Crown Prince/Princess weddings and Prince Albert' of Monaco's enthronement.

With all the apparent "close ties" even I would have thought that Sophie and Edward would come, I knew HM nor Charles would.

I don't think they were sent as the Kents are very close with the GRF. King Constantine is Ella's godfather and as far as I know the Kents have attended all of the weddings and celebrations of the GRF. So, I rather tend to believe that, as they would attend because of personal closeness anyway, the BRF thought that that's enough and they wouldn't have to send anyone else in addition.

Doesn't Prince Charles vacation at a Greek Monestary? And Prince Phillip is/was a Greek Prince by birth. One would think they'd send someone.....

When they're not vamping like realty-tv wanna-be celebrities, the dresses look a liiiiiiiittle bit better. More dignified? But could Tat get them matching purses as well?

Constantine is also Prince Williams godfather, Prince Edward has Princess Sophie of Greece and Denmark as a godmother, Princess Anne has two greek royals has godparents. I agree that they seem closer, but it would have been nice to send someone else.

I have never heard him vacationing at a Greek Monastary, he's probably in Scotland at the moment.
Prince Phillip, is a second cousin to Prince Nikolaos but I wouldn't have expected him to travel for the wedding.

Vamping? That's a very mean thing to say IMO, that they look like "reality tv wanna-bees"
Why should Tatiana get them matching purses? The day is about her, not her bridesmaids outfits.

Really??Well usually Star channel is rude with everyone but since its owned by Vardinogiannis family and they were guests thats why it was so nice and polite.

What did the other reporters say?I have heard Alter reporter a day before the wedding and he talked about the economic crisis and the wedding.

Magnificent wedding!!!!
I'm so happy for King Kostantin, that after so much years and sadness and rejection of his country, he had in greece an event full of joy and beauty, with the Greek people participating and being happy for him.

Yes, you are right! Prince Philip goes quite every year to Agion Oros, which is an area in North Greece, with historical Monasteries, more than 1000 years old. This area is forbidden for women. Prince Charles goes also very often.
You can not consider that is a vacation place, it is a place for isolation and meditation.

I have never heard that he visits this place "every year", I know he's been once without HM and she wasn't allowed inside. Never heard that Prince Charles has been either, where have you heard this? They are both part of the "Friends of Mount Athos".

Infanta Elena doesn't deserve such critics. The Spanish Princesses were badly dressed when they were young without any critics.
Jaime de M. learned Elena to be dressed on a beautiful way (pictures of the beginning of their wedding), as he worked for a group of Haute Couture , perhaps he managed to have one dress for his wife for a royal event.
Now she is alone with dignity..If she choice the pink jacket it was to be fine !
When life is difficult for some people, they should not be compared with other guests.
The important is inside..

I agree. Either such occasions aren't the BRF's cup of tea or they're really too busy.

What's the hand behind Tatiana doing? Looks like it's holding the traditional crown and the crown has been deleted...

Of course without HM, women are not allowed, not only inside the monasteries, INSIDE THE WHOLE peninsula.

And I know it for sure, he has been said many times when he was there, Prince Charles also. It is normal that in US it is not known, it is not a point of interest for US people. But in Greece it is an intersting point and it is known.
And do not forget that Prince Philip was baptised Orthodox, so it is not very abnormal for him to go to Mount Athos!!!!

The Infanta Elena is a woman of gestures very elegants. You have seen the elegance with which she fanned, not all Spanish women know how to use the Spanish fan with style

I'm not stupid thanks, and seeing as I'm from the UK not US and I follow my royal family I have never seen or read anything about Charles visiting the Monastary, could you provide me with this "said information".

I never said anything about it being "abnormal".

Guys, this is a wedding thread.
If you want to argue about Charles and Philip going to Mt Athos do it somewhere else.

thanks.

Prince Philip quite never comes to Greece, except for Mount Athos, and this time we were expecting him at the wedding because he is very close by blood and relationship with King Kostantin. Personnally I never believed that the Queen was coming to the wedding because the last years she never travels for events abroad but Prince Philip why not? Unless the protocol does not allow??

This wedding was announced a quite long time before, so at least one of the Queen's children was expected. Of course the Duke of Kent is very close, but he is not the only one. Do not forget that KK lives in London for about 40 years, so I believe that during all these years they elaborated very close bonds with the whole British Royal family
Anyway they know the reason!
