In the interview of Princess Irene, which I spoke earlier,she said that about 1976 she and her mother decided to move into India, with the end to know the philosophy and Eastern religions, they lived in the city of Madras, where they bought a floor, they received the teachings of Professor Mahedevin and they knew Teresa of Calcuta .Hers two passions, music and comparative philosophy.

Belt,could you be more specific about the celebrations of the JRF Pr.Irene has attended?I was generally curious to know what was the relationship between the two RFs.All I know is that the late King Hussein had offered one or two of his airplanes to the GRF to come to Greece in 1993.It would be interesting to know more about their relationship.

the relation between the real families of Greece and Jordan comes from the first stage in exile of King Pavlo and his brother king George. They had friendship with king Talal, between both families were created businesses.
when Greece was invaded by the Nazis, the Kings of Greece and their two children Sofia and Constantine left the country with the aid of the Jordanian Royal Family. Princes Sofia and Constantine knew in their exile in Egypt to king Hussein, they were small.
Hussein and their family were invited in several occasions to the palace of Corfu in summer.

Hussein was to the wedding of Kings of spain, Kings of greece and Prince Pavlo and Noor was in wedding of Alexia, and the Royal family of Greece was in the celebrations of jorrdanian .....I remenber to Princess irene in the wedding of Rania...and princes Pavlo and Nikolaos and princess Irene were in the wedding in 2004 of the son of Noor....................

In the funeral of Hussein were the Kings of Greece, the princes Pavlo, Nikolaos and Irene....
The Arab clients of the business of Pavlo of Greece are of Jordan.......

I see that you have liked the today lesson, but I can not approve to you ... Ohhhhhh! this was not exactly in 1941, it was later on 1945, at the end of exile, but their families were known since 1924.

King Hussein & Princess Muna attended the wedding of King Konstantinos & Princess Anne-Marie but none of them attended the wedding of Infante Juan Carlos & Princess Sofia. Maybe other Jordanian Royals were in Athens in 1962 but certainly it wasn't King Hussein.

In the funeral of King Hussein, I know from Greece attended King Konstantinos & Queen Anna-Maria, Crown Prince Pavlos & Crown Princess Maria and Prince Nikolaos. But in the website with the foreign royals and other representatives present in the funeral there was no mention to Princess Irini.

I think she was at the funeral of Hussein, because I remember that she traveled in the same plane with the Kings of Spain, when Noor received the sympathy of women that attending to the funeral, I remember a images of tv in which the Queen Ann Marie hug to Noor and behind her was the Princess Irene.
The wedding Constantine and Ann Marie, it was very sure that he was, I haven´t doubt of it because I have pictures of this, I thought that he was also in the wedding of Queen of Spain but I have doubt about it.
Now I am sure that some member of the Royal House of Jordan was in the wedding of Queen Sofia.........

Here they are:







It was interesting to see the old footage of the Greek royals in the second one and the pictures in the first from the "cow flight" Irene was involved with at some point. I would love to know what she is saying in the interview - could someone give a summary?

I recognize the big urns around the swimming pool from an engagement party for JC and Sofia. The place looks so unkempt now, it must be sad for them to see it like that.

Well. hello everybody!
This interview is already almost a year old.
Its purpose, I believe, was to show the Greek public there is a not-so-well-known member of the Royal Family who leads a not-so-royal life. Princess Irene is not what we could call a "typical" Royal.
Of course she is a King's daughter and a King's as well as a Queen's sister, but she's taken a different path in life, although she remains very close to her siblings and their families.
She answered some questions about the family life in Tatoi when they were young children and then she explained that she never felt the urge to marry and have a family of her own and how she studied Philosophy in India and what made her decide to create "World in Harmony", a foundation to aid poor countries.
She also talked about music, she is a really talented pianist, almost a professional and she works as a consultant for the "Megaron Mousikis", the Greek Concert House.
She also visited Rom camping near Athens bringing food and aid to the children and listening to their problems. A great Lady, a sweet person, she
gave me the impression of a really warm personality.

Thanks, mariazil! And welcome to the forums.

I've always thought Irene sounded like a very interesting lady, and she must have had a fascinating life. So she never felt any desire to marry? That's unusual for the royal women of her generation, when princesses were pushed to make the most advantageous match possible - I've read her mother wanted her to marry Crown Prince Harald of Norway. I would imagine that caused a few arguments at home.

In fact, Eva Celada who wrote the book, "Irene of Greece, the Rebel Princess", says that the family (Spanish RF) lovely call her "Aunt Pecu", due all they think Irene is Peculiar, in a lovely way of course.

I do not like this book, it was more focused on others persons than in Princess Irene ...About the Greek television program that was broadcast at 00:30 pm, and closed ... The TV channel is focused on the humanitarian organizations .....
