Last year, I read a article, when was published the list of the richest people in Great Britain, there was the miller family, but this article, pointed out that fortune really is unknown because they, the Miller and their bussines is in Hong Kong. The calculation of his fortune (Robert) would have been made on the basis of estimates, and based in the value that could be presumed from his investment fund, taking as a starting point that Robert Miller did sale operations of this fund in 2011, based on that sale, they start to calculate the possible benefits. But remember that we do not know the reason for the sale. In conclusion, it is an estimate of the investment fund of his father, but the debts are not computed, or even the distribution of profits between shareholders or costs. Secondly, they considered MC the largest shareholder, not counting his sisters, as MC would be the heiress of the fund, something that is not correct either, because the share is unknown if MC is the largest shareholder or the heiress. In conclusion really it do not know the fortune, and nor the motive of certain operations performed by Miller.
what is obvious is that they love teaching and showing luxury and wealth.

I do not know if this is good or bad, personally I do not like it, they like to teach luxury and wealth, and that people value them because they are so rich. I do not like that, because I think it defines them as idlers.

My philosophy is that if a person made their own fortune and did not steal it or cheat anyone, they are free to spend or flaunt it anyway they want. The same goes for people who have inherited their money.

It is THEIR money if was earned or inherited.

Is an idle life dedicated primarily to the acquisition of more, more, more money something I believe could make ME happy?

No it is not.

Famous wealthy people from all over the world have shown that money does not equate to happiness. MC's two sisters both suffered through divorces for instance.
Woolworths heiress Barbara Hutton never happy with many marriages etc. I am pleased that Pavlos and Marie Chantelle have a found a way for their marriage to work despite leading very busy lives.

That's true, Tarlita. They do seem happy.

Since Marie-Chantal and her children do not speak Greek, do you think the family's ties to Greece will lessen in the future?

I don't think Marie-Chantal and her family have all that many links to Greece TBH. They visit for an annual holiday and that seems about it, I can't see them suddenly getting interested in it one Constantine is no longer with us.

The Crown Princely family ties to Greece are already as flimsy as they could be. They only ever visit the country for holidays, and don't seem much interested in doing anything more imo

Do you think Marie-Chantal would welcome the restoration of the monarchy?

Not at all! She wouldn't be able to continue her jet-set life, or she could but would face criticism for doing so. At the moment she has the best of both worlds, a royal title, reigning relatives (Danish, Spanish and UK royal families) meaning she gets invites to all major royal events, plenty of money and no taxpayers to criticise her for using it to do whatever the heck she wants.

TBH I suspect plenty of reigning royals out there are jealous of her!

As reigning Queen of Greece, Marie-Chantal would likely also have to turn over the running of her successful childrens' clothing line to someone else, which would certainly make her unhappy.

She seems to enjoy her work and takes great pride in it's success.

And the children of Marie Chantal? Did Constantine Alexios or Maria Olympia like to become kings of Greece?

Olympia, Queen of Greece? I don't want to even think it.
I can imagine Olympia at the session of proclamation of the Greek Parliament, while the Parliament President would speak, she would be taken a selfie, to upload the photo to her instagram, with her model of dress chosen for the occasion.
The heir of heir is, Constantino Alexios, he's making University studies in Georgetown. It is very different from Olympia, I think that his father has reserved to him as the heir of the Royal House, and if in future it could be, the restoration

They both look good. M-C is dressed age appropriately, and I love the dress and shoes.
