I suppose that she uses of Greece as her surname as Sofia and JC's children have as the second surname "of Greece", so Sofia and Irene must have of Greece as her first.

In the process prior to filing the application to the Strasbourg court. Princess Irene in a statement in first person, she defended her surname as Greece, and that the deprivation of her passport was illegal. She demanded the return of her passport and her surname as validity. This is logical that she is not assume the Greek passport because she demanded the return passports and the validity of her surname. A passport of convenience would be the Danish to the Princess Irene, but she has a Spanish passport, she initially assumed the Danish passport and later voluntarily Spanish, . Princess Irene's surname may be in Danish or spanish "Greece". She has assumed voluntarily the Spanish passport.
She currently lives in Spain, and is very common to see her with Queen Sofia in London.
She has many friends in Spain, she has made many friends with Spanish missionaries, she shares with them the thinking and work,. She is free and she has decided this life. Greece is the land where she was born and raised Greek and her Greek blood like the rest of the family, but her life is in Spain, this is a reality. I'm not trying to offend anyone, I try to be honest. She travels to Greece, she has friends in Greece, but her life is in Spain that's obvious ... By this, she is not more or less greek, she is greek , but her life this in spain. ....

"Pecu" is monarchical.

And I think she rocks!
She certainly did not turn down the future king of Norway, infact she was prepared to go along with her mother's planning of an arranged marriage with him. Irene was supposed to even have been taking Norwegian language lessons. Frederika had her son Constantine ask Harald to be his main crown bearer at his wedding, trying to do the same kind of matchmaking where she got Sophia to invite Anne-Marie of Denmark to be one of her bridesmaids so that she and Constantine could be together. Unfortunately for Frederika, Harald had already begun his relationship with his Sonja so wasn't interested in Irene in the slightest.

She didn't turn down other crown princely marriages as there were no other crown princes around her age. Carl Gustav was a child, Baudoin (a king) was married and she was too young for him before he married, his brother Albert was married. The Netherlands had only female princesses as did Denmark.

Irene did have a relationship of many years with a friend of Constantine's, he was married and went into exile with the family. He died many, many years ago and we can assume that she's remained single since, or very discreet if she is involved with someone.

Princess Irene of Greece from 1964-1967 was the girlfriend Michel d'Orlans, Prince of Orlans. Beatriz d'Orlans, removed the boyfriend to Princess Irene. Princess Beatrice acknowledged it last year in an interview, but they are friends
Beatriz of Orleans is always teaching good behavior,
And she removed the boyfriend to Irene..

It takes two to tango so therefore Prince Michel wasn't a passive observer as he was "removed" from the Princess's side by Beatrice.

I did not see princess Yriny at the wedding. I hope she is doing well. She is very dear to me. Maybe Beltraneja who is well informed about the Greek royals whereabouts may know something.

Princess Irene was in India for the longest time and she still maintains an apartment there I believe .
Irene was never one of "one of the girls" going with this man and that one-He moral standards are high and ideal.If Norway's king passed up Irene it is his loss not hers.
She is a very cultured person; musical; with several degrees in those fields; independent; pure in intent and credible with honour abounding her.

It might be just as well that she never married because I think that if it had not worked out she would have been deeply hurt.
Irene is wise. All the bedcovers are hers at night when she sleeps.

It's neither his nor her loss. Two people may be excellent and complementing otherwise each other in terms education, character, values etc etc but they may not be physically or otherwise attracted to each other.
I just don't understand the content of your statement.
The life of both royals and commoners is well past the point when physical attraction was not a consideration prior to a match and eventual marriage.

There is no doubt whatsoever that she would have made an outstanding queen anywhere.

This is a nice video clip of the proclamation of Constantine as King, 1964, in full session of the Parliament, allowing glimpses of the then Diadoch princess Yriny.

Which law are you referring to? Princess Yriny became Diadoch in March 1964 because Constantine was unmarried and had no issue at the time. He married Anne-Marie 6 months later and Alexia was born in mid-1965 at which point, she became the Heir, until the birth of Paul.

In the video is two proclamations, not a single "proclamations" , the first proclamation of Constantine as King and the second, Princess Irene like heir , all that was accepted by government decree, it is given preference to the offspring closer to the last king regardless of whether it is male or female, . and thus exclude the preference of men in absolute terms which excluded women from Reign,novelty is that it has written decree, which is law. This delimitation of the succession law, establishing preference to the descendants of the last king, regardless of whether they were men or women,was happening in other countries in Europe. Princess Irene was a woman, she for one year and four months was heir to the throne of Greece.

Not only for violists...the award is about young artists who live away from the urban cities, in the country, and is about all kind of artists, pianists, etc.
