aane-marie was born in 1946 and alexia was born in 1965, therefore she must have been 19 years old

I remember ,when Princess Alexia was borned ,ArmyCannons fired,the ships at the harbor were honkining,the mayor ordered fire crackers on the sky,there was a party at home with my favored pie,no punishment,and my father repaired my little baby car(at last)grand mother money for my deposits and cinema,mother bought me baby diving glasses (just to see how my father catches the fish, first before him)My sister COULDN'T TALK because she was a few months old,so I was happy :woot: :woot:

When Alexia was baptised, there was a family concetration at a fish restaurant by the seashore!I must have picked my first million drachmas Everybody was joking and laughing saying how beautiful the little Princes will be(and they were right)!The only problem was,that my sister has opened her mouth and never shut it again Ever!!

Really no photos???
I have seen many photos of Alexia's and Theodora's christening.
Does anyone have photos of the christenings of Pavlos, Nikolaos and Phillippos???

I only know of one for him and it's at Corbis. Diana and the other godparents are on the steps of the church after the ceremony. There is at least one photo of Alexia's christening, too. Anne Marie and Ingrid are both wearing tons of jewels and Alexia is on a blue cushion.

I haven't found anything connected to the christenings of Princes Pavlos and Nikolaos and Princess Theodora... if anybody had info and pictures of their christenings, birth and godparents, and could post it in this thread it would be great. It would be interesting to gather in this thread the info connected to the christenings of the other members of the royal family, I mean princess Alexia, princess Maria Olympia, etc

Thanks to all of you:)

Alexandra, thanks for all of the photos you've posted here because they are fantastic!!! Most of them I've seen them for the first time.

Is it possible for anybody to post more photos about the christenings? What about the info of the christenings? I mean, the date of birth and christening, the godparents... I would appreciate it if it could be posted in this thread, so we don't need to look for the info in other threads.
Thanks to all of you:)

Sorry to disappoint you, but with our decreasing bandwidth, existing pictures and information will not be reposted in this thread. You could use the search function to locate all the many Greek christening threads and link them back to this thread. Remember, we are not here to spoonfeed you.
