Hello

I was just in a cafe in center of Athens, and near me were sat Prince Michael and Marina Karella, having lunch. I felt ashamed to take a picture.
He looks very gentle, very nice person. If he was alone, I had approached him to tell him how nice are his books, but Marina Karella is sometimes nervous and rude, so I did not approach them.
Just to share with you all.

Here is a really fascinating interview with Prince Michael from 2007. He discusses his parents and extended family (apparently he was very close to his maternal grandmother, the Duchess de Guise), how the royal way of life has evolved over time (whether it be royal finances, marriage customs, religious beliefs), how he might have become a diplomat had the Greek monarchy survived but instead followed his real passion and became a writer, etc. Enjoy!

What an interesting interview, thank you so much for posting it!
Prince Michael appears to be a highly intelligent and educated man, I really enjoyed listening to him.
The fact the interview was in French contributed to pleasant listening as well; I know it a lot better than English.

What an expressive look the baby has! One can already imagine the facial features in later years

.

Marina Karella attended the opening of Thaddaeus Ropac's new gallery in Pantin, France on October 13, 2012. The gentleman she is holding hands with is architect and interior designer Peter Marino.
