in 2003, The Goverment said that it would restaured and in 2004 and in 05(they spoke about one Hotel, museum..), 06, and 07!!!!!!!,08,09...to 2012, I think that it will be sold or similar but no restaured. During 10 years I have read it(museum, hotel....) .The future of Tatoi is uncertain, this is reality

Letting the former royal family buy it is out of the question I suppose?

Before. I had doubts about the news, but now, it is clear will be sold in 2013, the government expects to raise a lot of money. What will happen to the cemetery?.

It's sad, Tatoi undoubtedly holds a great deal of memories and history for the Greek royal family. Is it completely out of the picture for Constantine (or anyone else from the family) to be able to buy it?

That's odd because i just learnt that thousands of objects have been cataloged in order to open a museum inside the former palace :

Whoever the buyer is they are pretty much just buying the land. The buildings are largely in ruin and uninhabitable. They would likely have to tear them down and start over if they wanted a home on the estate. It would certainly be faster and cheaper than trying to restore what is on the land now.

Not too well but I doubt there would be major protests.
On the other hand, can the former Greek Royal Family actually afford to buy, restore and maintain the palace?

I believe King Constantine by himself can not although if he wanted to buy it he has many "friends" who would be able to help him. But surely Pavlos and Marie Chantal can afford to purchase repair and upkeep tatoi.

Greece is quite desperate now and Greek real estate prices have plummetted.

Nevertheless the greek shipowners(one of the infamous groups of taxevaders in Greece) and or the ex greek royals must be willing to pay a very generous amount for the property otherwise it will not look good.

the king constantine has not "Right of first refusal"about Tatoi, he will not buy it . He think should be used for reason that was expropriated ,the general interest.

I know that he could not buy it by law, because I had read it . It is of greek State and in future(About may) it will be private property.

The Friends of Tatoi Association bought different objects that had belonged to the Royal Family of Greece and were sold by HRH Prince Amedeo of Savoy (Head of the Italian Royal Family):

It is Necessary to make clear that this Organization or association has been created outside the Greek Royal House which does not have any link. This association aims to exploit the palace Tatoi for own initiative. The House Real Greek is foreing, this association, no is one association of monarchical, and does not advocate the Greek monarchy . The royal family is out of their goals . The Palace of Tatoi is owned by the Greek state, the state changed its legislative status to be able to sell or make a temporary sale ...I am follower the Greek royal family and others, but especially of the Greek royal house and Queen of Spain and her family(She is my princess of Greece), I love them very much.I do not belong to any association. With motive of the centenary of the death of king George A went to the cemetery of Tatoi, it is national heritage, and I was very sad to see how it was that, I would like to the creation of an association to demand respect for this cemetery of Tatoi, and ask people to respect this wing installation, there are buried the heads of the Greek State, I take the opportunity to express my opinion.
