The new Life & Style January issue came out.There was nothing about the GRF,not even a word And of course,no word about engagements (this is for you ,Belt ).I'm starting thinking that the recent protests and riots in Athens are the main reason.After all,all the events that were covered in the issue took place until the 6th of December.The 7th of December was the day that all these started,which means that every important event was cancelled since then
There was only a long article with many photos about Queen Sofia and nothing else

Ok.
I think that if Prince Nikolaos announce his commitment, it will be through an official communique from the Royal House in London, and IT will be within the Official Website.
Iakanty Do not worry, we will know it through the website.

You say :
"I'm starting thinking that the recent protests and riots in Athens are the main reason". It is possible ..
Yesterday, I read in a danish web,that in December Queen Daisy was shopping in London, I knew it of the Queen Sofia, but I had doubts about the Queen of Denmark

Welcome back,Beltraneja Ok,so Queen Daisy is Q.Margaret.Because you mentioned her some time ago and I couldn't understand who she was
Yes,I think it was the riots in Athens combined with the crisis in the economy (perhaps they lost some money,especially Pavlos) that kept them away from this kind of celebrations (engagements,Christmas cards,photoshoots in London or Gstaad etc.)

Today I saw-really quickly,I confess-Nikolaos and Tatiana on the cover of this week's Hello! magazine.I saw it on a TV commercial and although I didn't have the time to see it carefully,I'm sure it was them.I want to make clear that they were not in the center of the cover,but in a small corner,just the two of them posing in front of the camera.I guess I have to buy it tomorrow-it's really late now-and share all the information with you I admit I was very surprised,since I hadn't seen a GRF member on the cover of any magazine for months.It was like they finally disappeared from the face of the Earth

It might have been the picture of Marie-Chantal and Pavlos, just a guess, however.

I read in an interview that Queen Anne-Marie said that no one pronounces Nikolaos' name correctly. Can any of our greek friends tell us how it should be pronounced in Greek?

I was right yesterday.It was Nikolaos and Tatiana in Gstaad during Christmas holidays No other information about the rest of the family,though.
It's pronounced the way you see it:Ni-ko-la(a like arm)-os.The accent is on "ko" (Νικόλαος)

Was it one picture, several and was there an article? I would have thought he'd have been with his parents in London for Christmas!

It was o n l y this picture... I'm as disappointed as you,don't worry...The general "topic" was about Greek celebrities who went to Gstaad during the holidays.No article,not just a line

I have a story of two photos of the magazine Hello!of Spain in 2007,it said that they could marry this year.
They were walking with two dogs in Gstaad.

This is the same thing year after year. In 2006, they were Gstaad with the Kings of Greece and in the 2005 , the report were the kings of Greece with Paul and Marie Chantal

It is Swedish. The title can be translated as "It is time to propose, Nikolaos." The article says that even though Nikolaos and Tatiana have been together for six years and they live together in his Chelsea apartment, he is yet to pop the question. Much like Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling. However, unlike Daniel, Tatiana is regularly invited to various royal events, such as the birthday party of her boyfriend's aunt, Queen Sofía of Spain.

I think that nobody can confirm that Niko lives with Tatiana, but it can be deduced:
A: 6 years of relationship
B: He travels with Tatiana to royal celebrations,
C: She is in the celebrations of the Royal family of Greek in Porto Heli in Lanzarote ..
D: She lives in London
I think that all this can be inferred that they live together, and Niko has not changed his address, he lives in Chelsea.

Everything is possible, Tatiana could have rented the apartment next door to Niko, she could live in the house opposite.When the royal family is holidays in Porto Heli Tatiana could be camping out in the garden near the pool....

The article doesn't come out and say that they live together, but it mentions that Tatiana is often seen in his flat in London.

There are people who think that the marriage is for have children, while they are not planning to have children, they live united but without marriage, and,when they think about have children, they get married. Niko is possible that he isn´t prepared to have children.

Well, my translator is worse than yours, I translated that they were looking for flat to live together

Oops! I am sorry if I have caused confusion. I have been studying Swedish for only two years, but I thought my knowledge of the language was sufficient for reading royalty magazines...

Anyway. Here is the relevant paragraph and my translation:

"Tatiana är än så länge bara 28 år, men självklart måste även hon undra varför hennes prins aldrig friar. Bor ihop gör de hur som helst redan, i Nikolaos våning i Chelsea. Inte precis i enlighet med den kungliga etiketten, men även om samboskapet inte är helt officiellt är det heller ingen hemlighet."

Tatiana is still only 28 years old, but she must surely wonder why her prince has not proposed. They already live more or less together, in Nikolaos' apartment in Chelsea. Not exactly in accordance with royal etiquette, but even if the(ir) cohabitation is not official, it is no secret.

This "hur som helst" is a little tricky. It may have a meaning I am not familiar with and that might change the meaning of the whole sentence. Perhaps a more proficient Swedish speaker could help us.
