Thank you for posting these, Eya. I recently watched some YouTube documentaries about former King Constantine - very interesting. Sad to see the condition of Tatoi palace, which used to be very beautiful. On the last picture, next to Constantine is his mother Federica and his sister Sophia. Who is the man sitting between them?

You are welcome MidwestMom ! The article does not mention it and he does not seem good enough, but I believe that this is perhaps the then Greek Prime Minister Panagiotis Kanellopoulos without of course be absolutely sure.

No he is not because on 18 April of that year will be celebrating and 50 birthday of Queen Frederica. And came from madrid only Princess Sofia with her daughters Elena and Christina. Felipe was not yet born. Here one picture from all the family

Couldn´t it be King Juan Carlos, since he and Sofia were married at that time? :)

:previous: Thanks for another amazing photo, Eya. :smile:

The hairstyles from that period always reminds me of embalmed samurai helmets.:blink:
How did they manage to sleep without having to do a full tour at the hairdresser the next day?

Lovely read and some nice photos (that i had not seen before) - Thorsten Overgaard's Leica Pages - The Story Behind That Picture - "My Queen - Margrethe II of Denmark"

this one is especially lovely
