Yes I noticed that but was also struck at how frail the king has become.

I think there are other rules for royals than for the rest of us. I remember Elizabeth II also laying a wreath at the Queen Victoria and Pr Albert memorial at Frogmore to mark the 100th deathday of her ancestor in 2001 (though without a religious service i think).
But remember the belgian royal family holding a Te Deum each year for the gone members of the family - and many of them longer dead than 50 years...!
But a gathering for the premiere of the King-Paul-documentary does make sense.

Memorial services are very common in the Greek Orthodox Church -and mean it There are those "compulsory" who happen the 3rd, 6th and 40th day of someone's passing then one after 3 months, another after 6 months, another after a year and another after 3 years are completed. And from that point on the deceased's children can hold a memorial service each year but most people choose don't have to mark the exact day because there are special days when we can commemorate the deads and it's easier that way. For older people like my grandma it's very important and she notes prayers not just for her parents, but for every single dead relative in living memory.

Memorial services are also very common in the roman catholic church.

Thanks for the photos, everyone. I always enjoy seeing photographs of the Royal Families together. I wonder why Juan Carlos couldn't make it? Perhaps his health problems prevented him from attending. I find it interesting that The Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Serbia and also The Margrave and Margravine of Baden were there, I wonder if they're related to King Paul in anyway, or whether their families were just friends with him. Marie Chantal posted an adorable photo on Instagram of one of her sons eating a chocolate souvenir from a museum they visited, but unfortunately I can't post the photos here as Instagram doesn't work on my PC.

Crown prince Alexander is the grandson of King Alexander , the brother of King Paul. The margrave if Baden is 2nd cousin I think? Did king michael not make it?

King Michael is too old and frail to attend international events. He was anyhow very close to his uncle King Pavlos.

I thought he was. The pics if the king CII and queen Sophie were very touching (where they lost composure or were very moved). The King should have been given back his home so he could visit his parents whenever he wanted. a shame.

MC and Pavlos and their children also form a beautiful family and they all seem very close, very bonded.

Also as principessa pointed out memorials for the deceased are very common in the Roman Catholic Church as well as the Greek Orthodox. In fact, official Catholic teaching is that praying for the repose of the souls of the dead is a duty, an act of Christian charity, since death does not break our bond with those who have gone before us.

Despite the solemnity of the occasion it was really nice to see such a royal gathering and especially the Spanish & Greek cousins.
