I too noticed the use I'd the cane, what is the age difference between the king & Queen Anne Marie? (she seems so much younger than him, or maybe it's just my perception.......)

6 years! King Constantine is 71 (born on June 2, 1940), Queen Anne-Marie is 65 (born on August 30, 1946).

They seem to be very realistic people which is fortunate for them.
hahahaha the age and health are not an obstacle in Greece. Have you seen who have been Presidents of the Republic? The current President can barely move hahahahah . Other Kings of Europe has problems with their legs, King Juan carlos , King Albert

Happy that the Greeks may show their jewelry because of the Glitter of the Danish Royal Court.

Thank you; I haven't been following the GRF and only noticed it during the recent events.

I´m getting a bit scared when I see the King getting frail knowing that his parents both didn´t become very old and didn´t live anymore when at their son´s current age.

Too late! But the royal family members event was a beautiful service

King Constantine said on his Larry King interview that one good thing about his exile is that he has had way more time to spend with his family then he would have had otherwise. I think that is why the family is very close, happy and well-behaved. Also, Anne-Marie came from a close, loving family. I'm not sure about Constantine's family. It doesn't always seem to be the same with alot of royal families.

By the way, I'm still rooting for a marriage between HRH Prince William of Wales and HRH Princess Theodora of Greece!
I just read the part about HRH William and HRH Theadora getting married.. Too bad that never happened, they would have made beautiful babies! Although selecting Catherine as his future queen was a great choice.. she is amazingly beautiful and graceful. We watched the royal's members events and the service on my big-screen in Reno, Nevada. Such a beautiful wedding.

King Constantine, Princess Marie Chantal and Princess Tatiana attended the Celia Kritharioti Spring/Summer 2012
fashion show at One Mayfair in London on March 20, 2012. Celia Kritharioti is a Greek fashion designer.


Great to see them attending an event together!

possibilities:
1) enjoys spending time with his daughters in law
2) looking for a gift for his wife
3) supporting a fellow Greek in London.
4) just wanted a day out of the office and thought this might be fun

Maybe it's 1,2 and 3 but I am not sure about number 4. I think there are a lot of other things to do for a King!

Ex-kings probably not so busy.
Possibility #5 , he just likes looking at pretty girls parading around in front of him.
