Greek Royals at the Beijing Olympics 2008

The opening ceremony finished half an hour ago and I'm still like "wow"!!
Did you see Konstantinos and Anna Maria greeting the greek athletes?
Unfortunately,I haven't seen Theodora and Philippos yet.
Oh,I wish I were in Beijing right now...

Question

The latest news is that Theodora and Philippos are in Beijing with their parents.I guess this happens because they are both single or without a long-term relationship,like Nikolaos.
I don't want to believe that they do what their parents tell them to do,like 13 year old kids.It's easier for them to travel around the world,because they don't have serious responsibilities.
I would like to see your opinions.Do you agree with me?

Yes, on the Australian TV feed we saw a good shot of the King and Queen welcoming the Greek Olympic team to the stadium.

Here's a pic, originally posted by Lady Finn in the Royals at the Olympics thread showing the King and Queen, Philippos and Theodora in Beijing.

The agency has presented the photo side-on so you'll have to tilt your monitors.
Oh, the caption is wrong. They have Philippos identified as Nikolaos.

Constantino and Ann Maria were in the ceremony of inauguration of the olympic games of the Beijing
They were seated behind the President of China, with the remaining members of the Olympic Committee .they will be in China during all the Olympic Games.
the navigation competition will be in Hong Kong
I think that are with kings, the princess Teodora and Fillipos and Nicolaos with Tatiana

Thank you for posting the photo. I believe I read in another post that Nikolaos and Tatiata are in Greece, but Theodora and Philipos are with their parents in Beijing.
The Greek TV showed them saluting the Greek team when they entered the stadium.

I cannot wait for 8:30 for the ceremonies to start on American TV.
Although I doubt they will show any extensive coverage of the foreign royals. They usually tailor it for the American audience who in their majority do not give a hoot about what we, here, care.........

I agree with you, Greek101. It looks to me as if Theodora has lost some weight.

Hey,this is the picture that is shown live worldwide,not only by the national TVs.Everybody watched this.I don't know what is going on with the american television,in Greece we watched live the opening ceremony at 15.00.The difference from Beijing is only 5 hours.

Wink

I believe that,too.And she has a perfect tan.
I also think that Philippos and Theodora enjoy each other's company,maybe that's why they followed their parents in Beijing.They can spend some time together.
Perhaps,it has nothing to do with being conservative,since Theodora studied theatre and acting.She must be openminded,she's an artist after all...

I agree that she is a modern educated woman. However she seems conservative to me. She is always well behaved, never wears low cut dresses, skirts up to there or anyone saw her being carried half drunk out of nightclubs. She also lost weight and looks gorgeous. It was a very appropriate name they gave her when she was born. I hope and wish she has a happy long life. Philipos looks like a younger Pavlos.

Oh,I understand you now:conservative in a good way.She has a natural elegance and sophistication and doesn't fit with the masses.She behaves well and concentrates on her family and her dreams.I like that.Most people in their 20's behave really foolish,like teenagers.You have to be very picky nowadays and always be careful with the people you meet.I think I understand Theodora very much.
