King Konstantinos II would never interfere in the choices of his daughter.

As his father is a Prussian prince and his parents were legally married, he is of course a Prinz von Preussen. His German name is Georg Prinz von Preussen, even if he doesn't use that name.

His father converted to orthodoxy and became Grand Duke Mihail Pavlovitch of Russia.When Grand Duke George was born he was born as member of the Imperial House of Russia and not of a Prince of Prussia.
Grand Duke George had never been considered a member of the Royal House of Prussia and he had never had the surname "Prinz von Preussen".

I am not expert for royals... but I have a question. Could someone be a member of two Houses by birth? Could be GD George a member of Imperial House of Russia and a member of Royal House of Prussia at the same time? How is it after marriage?

As none of his married children have married royalty I dont think that is an issue

King Constantine is Grand Duke George's godfather.

Grand Duke George can't be and in fact he is not member of Two Royal Houses.He has always been only member of the Imperial House of Russia.

The Imperial House of Russia and the royal Family of Greece have always been in very good terms.

He's still related to the Prussian House. The blood of Prussian Kings run through his veins, no matter how much they try to deny it. As much as I deny my cousins, they are still my cousins even if I call them another name.

And why can't he be a member of the Prussian Royal House? The fact that his mother is the Head of the Russian Imperial House doesn't prevent him from inheriting his father's title of Prince of Prussia.
He may not use his Prussian titles, but this doesn't imply that he is not a Prussian Prince.

Grand Duke George had never been considered a member of the Royal House of Prussia and he had never had the surname "Prinz von Preussen".
That is entirely incorrect. At birth, he had the surname of Prinz von Preussen and in fact, his father held the boy's passport in that name throughout his minority.

His legal name was and is "Prinz von Preussen." His titles and styles in pretension are Grand Duke et al. But they are just that - titles and styles in pretension.

Exactly, MA Fan. He is a Prince of Prussia.

Why do you insist on this? Where is it written that he is and has only been a member of the Imperial House of Russia? I had always assumed that a woman typically takes the position of her husband and their children are members of the father's house. In the case of queen regnants, there are letters patent issued to address this particular circumstance when a wife has the higher position than the husband (I think; I may be wrong).

In the case of the marriage of Grand Duke George's parents his father took the surname and the titles of his mother not viceversa.Prince Franz of prussia became Grand Duke Mihail Pavlovitch Romanov of Russia before his marriage.Grand Duchess Maria had never been Princess of prussia.Grand Duke Vladimir granted at the birth of Grand Duke George his russian titles.
Grand Duke George never sustained to be a Prince of Prussia and in no Statement of the Imperial House he had been mentioned as such.

Here is a little explanation:
Tsarevich - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tsesarevich - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Tsarevich" is a title that refers to the Tsar's sons and "Tsesarevich" is a title that refers to the heirs of the throne,so it's not quite correct to name Grand Duke Georgi -"Tsarevich".

Grand Duke George is the son of the "de iure Empress" Maria Vladimirovna.

I agree with you. So it is big mistake by Imperial House of Romanov.
