Some highlights about Princess Irene:
Donated her inheritance to "World in Harmony."
Never married, but had several great "loves."
Nieces and nephews call her "Tia Pecu" as in peculiar/quirky.
Accompanies Queen Sofia often, but stays in the background.
Admires Sofia for her serenity, good judgment and sense of responsiblity.
Born in South Africa and lived in India for over a decade with her mother
Claims Irene Urdangarin was not named for her ... parents just liked name.
On Greek excile: Thinking in the past is futile. Better to think in the present and future.

Is it known why she married none of her "great loves"? Living a low profile life in exile it should not have been a problem for her to marry a commoner.

Though it seems that Irene did not inherit her mother's ambitions, or she would not have chosen such a low profile life.

She had many wooers and boyfriend in the Spanish nobility, it was her personal decision, she has always been a woman with a personality and philosophy of life own , she did not liked living permanently in one place, she loved India, and she loved the spiritual life. One own philosophy of life, I think she has never wanted to get married because she does not like that kind of life

Princess Irene leads a very quiet royal life compared to others,she does attend events associated with the Greek & Spanish Royal Families but other than that we don't see much of her.

I was surprised to find out in this interview that even though the Princess has lived for 30 years in Spain she has difficulty speaking the language, I always thought she was fluent in Spanish. But I this happens, I have foreign neighbors that have been living her in my country for as long as the Princess lives in Spain and they have difficulty speaking the language, that is understandable when you still travel a lot and speak with others the common language so they can be understood.
