Her Majesty was very enthusiastic greeting the First couple of Greece.

White Princess 05-18-2009 01:08 PM

It's a pity to know Greece is a republic now. Imagine if Greece was still a monarchy, Queen Margrethe II would meet her own sister!

Lumutqueen 05-18-2009 01:20 PM

Mary looks absolutley stunning. What an event this should be. Thank you ever so much Paty for the pictures. And yes itisa shame, when this thread was first opened my mind automatically thought about a visit from the royals. x

What tiara is the Queen wearing? Mary looks gorgeous!

Mandy 05-18-2009 04:58 PM

Sorry, I don't know which order HM Queen Margrethe is wearing!

Prince Henrik and Crown Prince Frederik are wearing the Greek Order of Honour.

Crown Princess Mary is wearing the Greek Order of Beneficence.

I think, His Excellency Dr. Karolos Papoulias is wearing the Danish Order of the Elephant.

I love the purple coat but it needs a light colour for the dress underneath it.

Paty 05-18-2009 05:26 PM

Info and Photos of the Greek Orders and Decorations. The Queen is wearing the same order as Prince Frederik and Prince Consort, The Order of Honour.
