Christening Of Odysseas Kimon
Hi all,

Since the other kids each have a thread dedicated to their christening each I thought that Odysseas could use one.

Please post pictures and news in this thread...

Aren't the Greek Royals related to almost all the Royal families in Europe? Any idea what royals will be in attendance?

Anna_R 06-16-2005 09:19 AM

I read somewhere that Queen Sophia and Princess Irene will be there, but this is not stated at the Queen's official schedule and I failed to find any mention to her in the news I've read about the christening, but I'm still looking.

If Mette-Marit is one of the godmothers, it's possible that Haakon will be there with her too...

Would the christening of a great-nephew of a deposed royal house be mentioned in the official schedule, though? I mean, the Borbons may seat Constantine and his clan with the reigning royals, but I would be surprised if a Greek christening would qualify as an official engagement.

Reina Sofía of Spain attended the concert offered by the Spanish tenor last night, Placid Domingo, in the old theater Odeón de Herodo de Atico, on the feet of the Acropolis of Athens. Reina Sofía is in Greece in a visit deprived from day 14 of June and took advantage of the opportunity to listen the Spanish tenor in a successful performance in the old theater, that celebrates the Athinon Festival. Domingo interpreted Aryans of Berlioz, Wagner, Verdi and Massenet and operetas and musical comedies of Lehar and Bernstein, among others, accompanied by the State Orchestra of Salonica, under the direction of Eugene Khon, and by the soprano Verónica Villarroel. After the concert, Reina attended the supper offered in a hotel from Athens to the Spanish tenor by the patrocinadores of the festival. Saturday 18, Reina Sofía will attend the baptism of the grandson of its brother king Constantino of Greece, son of inheriting prince Pablo and Marie Chandall. The boy, Kimon Odysseys, sixth grandson of Constatino and queen Ana Maria, will be baptized in the Hermitage of San Juan in the athenian locality of Confronts, in the presence of the family and friends. At night of Saturday a supper will be offered to about 250 guests in the Club Nautical of the port of the Pireo, old Real Nautical Club, near Athens and that the Greek real family used to frequent in the past.

Does the Greek Royals wear hats to Church?Anybody know?

kelly9480 06-17-2005 05:53 PM

They haven't worn hats to previous Greek christenings, so I doubt there'd be hats now. Of course, Greece may call for a different dress code than London, but I've never seen a Greek woman in a hat in a Greek church.

Alexia's youngest daughter Ana-Maria was baptised in Greece and hats were not worn. Of course the venue might be different and dictate hats, or Alexia and Carlos Morales might simply have wanted a less formal, more low-key baptism for their daughter. But I think hats are unlikely to be expected.
