These are wonderful pictures, thank you for posting them, Beltraneja! They must have really enjoyed themselves, the place is wonderful and I'm sure they enjoy each other's company, being the "intellectual" ones of the family ;-)

Yes, Michel is the historian of the family, and knows Greece better than anyone. He didn't left Greece after the 1967 coup, but only after the 1974 referendum. But even after that, he was the only member of the GRF that was visiting Greece during the 70's, 80's and 90's, and also has a house in Patmos Island:-)

She speaks fluent Spanish, she has a voice very similar to Princess Alexia, but fluent in Spanish, I've seen on television in Spain , when the Prince Philip married. The journalists asked to her, and she spoke very good Spanish.

Did HRH Princess Irene ever marry? Does she have any children? Does she live in Spain or elsewhere? Also, exactly how is Prince Michael related to Constantine, Sofia, and Irene? Is he a prince of Greece or of another country? Any other information on Prince Michael or Princess Irene would be appreciated. Just curious - I only realized these two people existed after reading GRF and Spain's royal family's forums on this website.

Irene never married and never had any children. She mostly lives in Spain. I think Prince Michael of Greece is a first cousin to the three siblings.

Irene and her siblings are first cousins once removed of Prince Michael; their grandfather King Constantine I and Michael's father were brothers.

Prince Michael is the son of Prince Christopher who was the son of the first king of the dynasty, King George and Queen Olga. Christopher and King Constantine I were brothers,King Paul and Prince Michael of Greece were first cousins, . Miguel is a second cousin of Princess Irene.

I am assuming Miguel = Michael. Is that correct?

Princesse Irini lives also on Athens, she has an appartement in center. I see her very often in concerts and other cultural events.

As regards her exact family link with Michel de Grece, he is her uncle in second degree. In know that in english you say second cousin, but the correct is uncle.\
Princess Irini (also Queen Sofia and King Kostantine are second cousins with Princesses Olga & Alexandra.

King Kostantin I - Prince Christopher : Siblings
King Paul - Michel de Grece : First cousins
KIng Kostantin II, Queen Sofia, Pcs Irini - Princesss Olga & Alexandra : Second cousins
