For those of you interested in the topic, there are two short videos:
One, on the arrival of Princess Anne-Marie and her family aboard the Danish Royal Yacht at Faliron Bay;
The second, on the wedding at the Athens Cathedral (Metropolis).
Both can be found at the site of the former Greek royal family .
Please make sure you click on the Greek language version [Ελληνικά] and then on video [Βίντεο] on the right column. When the list appears, choose the second and third of the three [the first one is on a tour of Constantine and Anne-Marie to the countryside].
The wedding video contains three violations of protocol which have great historic and symbolic significance and stirred controversy at the time:
1. Immediately after the ceremony, Queen Frederika kissed and curtsied (!) to her son. This, one may argue, is a semi-violation in that Queen Frederika was a monarch's consort but not a monarch herself, but she still was a majesty (HM). The only instance she could have done that was when he son became monarch after his swearing-in ceremony following his father's death in a gesture similar to that of Queen Mary who, upon her grand-daughter's return from Africa, paid homage to the new monarch when the latter visited her at Marlborough House. She bowed and kissed the hand of QEII saying, "Long live the Queen".
2. The second breach of protocol involves Queen Frederika kissing Anne-Marie, by then The Queen of the Hellenes and then curtsying to her.
3. Immediately upon Queen Frederika's curtsy, Anne-Marie returned the curtsy.
The latter two were incorrect in that a Queen consort does not need to bow to another Queen consort or a Queen Dowager. The royal ladies were both majesties.

The clue behind these gestures, which diplomatic observers at the time hasted to characterize as theatrical, was the unhappiness of the Hellenes with Queen Frederika. Rumours were circulating that Queen Frederika would continue to rule the country. So, she did all that in an attempt to appease the populus. Unfortunately, most newspapers interpreted it negatively.

No, that is Prince Michael of Greece who is a cousin of King Constantine.
Prince Michael lives in Paris. He is the father of Princess Alexandra and Princess Olga who just married Prince Amadeo of Aoste.

Thanks,Iceflower!It's so nice to be able to read these articles as well.
Although,I didn't get an answer about the tall man standing next to Constantine during the wedding,I believe it's George Papandreou.

Well,I guess these people had to pretend in many occasions....Papandreou was standing right next to Constantine,like he was his father or something.

Pictures of Anne-Marie getting dressed before the wedding with her mother and sisters. Margrethe is in blue and Benedikte is in red. I love these photos - it just seems so ordinary for a bride to be sitting with her family right before the ceremony as she puts on the finishing touches.

What a beautiful couple. They were so young when they became King and Queen, it was a bit awesome for them, I think.

Question King Constantine & Queen Anne Marie's Pre-Wedding Ball, 1964

Does anyone have any pictures of the Pre-Wedding Activities of King Constantine and Princess Anne Marie of Greece in Athens 1964.

Here's a link to some pictures of the ball:

And here's the contents of that whole website, where you can see other pre-wedding festivities, the engagement ball, the wedding, and so on:

I think Anne-Marie was beautiful, but I don't like her dress for the pre-wedding ball. The sheer jacket she's wearing over it looks too big and makes it look like the dress is wearing her rather than the other way around.

I agree.
I think the dress would be very beautiful though if it didn't have the jacket.

Actually, this wedding should be under Weddings of Members of Reigning Houses for the simple reason that when the event took place, the groom was King and the bride princess within a monarchy.
The argument doubles, in fact, because even though the Greek Monarchy is now defunct, Denmark continues to be a kingdom.
