The above pictures of Princess Irene do not do her justice. In real time, she looks way better.

Yes, I saw her some two months ago. She and I were sitting, facing each other, although in different tables, but not more that 15 feet apart, in an Athenian restaurant - so, inevitably, I had the opportunity to capture her gaze repeatedly. Although she appears to have some skin imperfections which must date back to her childhood and may be residuals of (perhaps) chickenpox, her smile and overall looks are utterly enticing. The only thing I found somewhat bizarre were the rather dull colors and a specific dress-style as if she belonged to an spiritual order.

ebook

In the greek Life and Style, December 2009, there is an article about Princess Irene. titled "the courageous confession in her new biography" where, according to the cover page, she states that "cancer came to her life as a catharsis"...

I did not know that she suffered from cancer... I am deeply sorry...

Is there a new biography on Irene, or is the article talking about the one released a couple years ago? Could you give us a summary of the rest of the article?

She does not have a drop of Greek blood "biologically" speaking, BUT how can we say than one family after 100 years to a country does not belong to this country?? Children of emigres, first generation, are considered to be nationals of the country where they live. Just after only one or two decades in their new countrz! Imagine after one Century!

Yves Montant was considered French, but he was Italian, raised up in France!

Absolutely! They speak the language, adopted the faith and either fought with or trained (until King Constantine's time) in the Greek Armed forces. Besides they also settled their tax liabilities to the Greek State.
That is more than some other citizens of the country can claim.

On Wednesday, December 23, 2009, princess Irene attended the funeral of the most influential newspaper publisher in Greece, the late Christos Lambrakis. Mr Lambrakis was the soul and president of the Megaron Mousikis foundation to which princess Irene serves as consultant.

I am a republican but not an anti-monarchist. I am still an EU (Greek) citizen and, at times, have envisaged that I wouldn't mind having a person like Yriny as the national powerless figurehead, as president for life.
Each time I come across the serenity, genuine smile and warmth of this woman I feel that tomorrow will be a better day.
She is rare and precious!

Republican and anti-monarchical, you are very contradictory .... Irine is a great woman, she has done a great social labour.... She is a unique person.I agree with you, she is admirable woman.

Princesses Sofia and Irene of Greece pictures from fashion photos on webshots

I found this photo yesterday and I thought that Princess Irene looks very charming here , so I am posting it. IMO nowadays Princesses are no longer posing so nicely for photographs, a pity

It is fair to say that both these ladies are unique, remarkable, adorable and admirable individuals. However, neither has ever distinguished herself in terms of sense of fashion, looks or overall appearance. Perhaps they didn't care because they are both very spiritual.
