Ok I see Cp Alexander

Awesome . I hope they will make it available for the public

Nice that so many members of the extended Greek RF attended.

I spotted the Margrave and Margravine of Baden, CP Alexander and CPss Katherine of Serbia, Prince Michel and his wife Marina as well. Is Pss Margarita of Roumania expected too? A pity that the king of Spain couldn't make it to his father-in-laws memorial. Did princess Alexia's husband attend the event?

Marie-Chantal has 2 pictures of her sons with the poster of King Paul. She remarks on the resemblance between the boys and their great grandfather.

I dont want to rain on anyone's parade, but I just dont get this. Why hold a "memorial" service for someone who died 50 years ago?

Or is it a covert golden jubilee service?

^^Why not? People like to remember family members who died, specially if it's their father. The anniversary of a death is a good day to reunite the family and remember a dear family member who is no longer with us. Many families do that: reunite for a mass/memorial service for deceased family members. Of course, when your father was the King, things are bigger: there is documentaries, etc, etc. Normal. The fact that he died 50 years ago doesn't make any difference.

Princess Alexandra of Hanover, daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco is in Athens according to some media for the King Paul doc.

Has anyone see her there? Why would she be there, is she related to King Paul?

If I recall correctly, King Paul's consort, Queen Frederika, was a Princess of Hanover by birth. Maybe Princess Alexandra is representing the Hanoverian Royal Family.

Coulkd also be a mistake, There are 2 other Princesses Alexandra of Hannover who are closer related to King Paul. The widow of his brother-in-law Prince Welf, and his niece Alexamdra, Fürstin zu Leiningen, the sister of Prince Ernst August.

I don't think that it was possible for Cristina and Felipe to stand further away from each other. I know that her husband is a criminal, but looking at these pictures makes me feel slightly sorry for Cristina, she seems rather lonely and people seem to evade her like the plague.

Yes I noticed that,Infanta Cristina is away from the entire Spanish Royal Family in the group photo outside the church and standing the opposite side with the Greeks.

No, it was not - and it was not intended to be an insult against the spanish royals! I was just surprised that only pictures from Queen Sofia and Cristina (with the exception of Prcss Irene) were covered, as this is the Greek´s thread (yes, I know Queen Sofia is just as King Paul´s daughter as King Constantine is his son) and this was about a documentary about a GREEK king in the GREEK capital.
I guess the media sets its priorities on reigning royal houses although they should differ at this particular occasion in my opinion. But the photos we saw at a later stage in this thread are quite sufficient by number and so everyone should be satisfied...
So, no need for you to feel annoyed - so your comment and your "anger-smiley" is quite misplaced here!

I don't think its on purpose. Queen Sofia would never sideline her daughter like this. Its rather that Cristina has always been close to her greek cousin, therefore it makes sense that she is standing nearby.

Cristina and the Asturias made it on the same pictures:

Thanks, it seems that king Constantine became emotional. I also noticed King Simeon II in one of the pictures.
