:smile:great pictures.. I knew Diana was tall but I never knew she was so much taller than Japan's royals!

TheTruth 07-14-2007 09:16 AM

Well, Japanese people aren't very tall. If you have seen Sofia Coppola's movie 'Lost In Translation', you must have noticed lol.

Here are some more pictures :

I knew Princess Benedikte was tall but I did not realise she was taller than Princess Diana. They are standing next to each other there, aren't they?
Thank you The Truth.

You're very welcome LOSSEAN !
Yes, she's very tall. It's rare to see a princess taller than Diana. Princess Benedikte is almost as tall as Prince Philip.:eek:

I think you mean Greece's Prince Philippos, not the Crown Prince. Philippos was the one born in 1986 :flowers: Great photos BTW

Sorry, but was Prince Philip a godfather of the baby? I find that kind of cool, since he was born Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark as well. Was Diana a godmother of the baby as well?

Edit: Never mind, I saw the answer once I looked at the link to the Diana question!

I don't think he was actually. He was probably there because of his greek origins. Go here to post #9. There's only Diana as godmother of Prince Philippos.:flowers:

Not pictures but an anecdote to share.

When the prince accompanied his parents for a formal dinner with the British RF (donīt recall the occassion) he dropped his spoon and exclaimed īSh#tī. His mother gave him a very stern look to show her disapproval but the Princess of Wales started to giggle about it.
The prince of Orange also remarked in an interview for his (18th?) birthday the prince didnīt think he knew a princess that he could ever marry, except maybe Princess Diana or Stephanie of Monaco.

I've heard this story as well. Diana might have been thinking of her own younger brother doing and saying the exact same thing.

A most elegant curtsey, welcomed with a warm smile! By the way: Queen Beatrix was the only royal who was pleased to honour The Princess of Wales with an Order. I was the Crown Order which is a personal token of appreciation (it is part of the House Order of Orange and its grants depends solely on Her Majesty's very own pleasure).

No any other royal has granted an Order to the Princess. Except for her mother-in-law, who gave her the Family Order, of course.

Wikipedia should probably be taken with a grain of salt, but they do list The Duke of Edinburgh, The King of Spain, Diana, Princess of Wales, and Infanta Elena of Spain as Philippos' godparents. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_...ce_and_Denmark
