I always believed that both Alexandra and Olga are the most elegant ladies I've ever seen.It seems that it comes from their nature and no title or money can buy it.Well done,ladies!!

I do not understand it.

MIGUEL IS princes of Greece, but their children are not Princess of Greece.

On the website of the Royal Family Greek, THEY ARE NOT members of the Royal House of Greece.

IT is not fair, because Princess Alexia is the daughter of Kings, grandson of Kings, and their children ARE NOT princes of Greece.I think:


iN THE FUTURE, Prince Nicole will marry and will have children, would it be fair that VANITTY FAIR would say that his children are not princes?.
is it fair?
It breaks the traditional rules of the European monarchies.

Princess Alexandra of Greece is a great-granddaughter of a Greek King through a collateral line and is the product of an "non-dynastic" marriage. Alexandra's mother is known as Marina Karella, not "HRH Princess Michael" and her husband gave up his right to the throne on his marriage.

Princess Alexandra's generational position as a King's great-granddaughter is the same as Lady Rose Windsor [Gilman], Lady Helen Taylor and Lady Gabriella Windsor in Britain. In the Netherlands the children of the Queen's sons (apart from the children of the Prince of Orange), are mere counts and countesses. In Denmark the sons of Joachim have the lesser style of HH rather than HRH and in Norway the son of the Crown Prince is a prince with no style at all. In Spain the great-grandson of King Alfonso XIII, Luis Alfonso de Bourbon, has no position in the Spanish Royal Family, and no official Spanish title.

Liechtenstein, in common with the German and Austrian Houses, is the only reigning House where we see the Princely style and title carried on for generation after generation without apparent limitation, providing the marriage of the parents is approved by the Reigning Prince.

So, it's not a break with tradition and it's not so unusual.

I would imagine that any children of Prince Nikolaus will be Princes and Princesses of Greece with the style of HRH. If they are to carry different titles, or none at all, it will be up to his father the King to make the decision.

I know he is not half or full Greek but I really forget what exactly his ancestry is. It sounds a bit French but I may be totally wrong. They live in New York City. They were married in Venice. Romantic wedding the two ladies had. Isn't it?

The way we count cousins here in Greece she is King Constantine's second cousin , which makes her Alexia's , Nicolaos' and Pavlos' aunt .

Constantine I and Christopher were brothers. Michael and Paul I were first cousins. Thus Michael's daughters and Constantine are second cousins.

Now, in royal and nobility lingo the words uncle and aunt are less used. Instead, cousin is more popular.
Thus, even though Michael's daughters are aunts to Constantine's children, the applicable term here is second cousins once removed, that is, if one removes one generation on Constantine's side, they become second cousins.

You are quite right , but since I am always afraid of making a mistake using this "removed cousin" system, I used the "greek system" in order not to make a mistake about their relationship.

let's not make it more complicated. snowflower helped me a lot to understand their relation. the "greek way" is more simple for us. and now i understand why prince michael was to become king before constantine. thank you both for your answers!
