Only ONE hour left.
The Priests are already queuing for the pilgrimage of King Konstantinos. Nikolaos is going to cry a river when he sees this.

The King of the Netherlands has landed in Athens, still awaiting the arrival of the King and Queen of Belgium in about 10 minutes.

Very moving to see these beautiful delegations from Mani and Sfakia presenting their respects to Konstantinos.

The coffin is being transported to the Metropolis at this time for the funeral procession. The body of King Konstantinos is followed from the chapel to the Metropolis by his three sons, Pavlos, Nikolaos and Philippos.

On Billed-Bladet's livestream, they explained Princess Alexandra (of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg) comes alone because her husband Count Michael is ill.

The crowd singing and applauding the coffin was very moving.

As far as I remember Mani is the only part of Greece that was never conquered by the Turks and it's people are known for their pride and skills on the battlefield

Yes, and rightly so. The Greek government deserves all the humiliation for their actions.

Pavlos is doing the job and keeping his nerves in check, Nikolaos is most affected, and Philippos might be in his mid 30's but he will always be the baby of the family, I love how he follows his big brothers.


The ones who got booed are Vice President Mr. Pikrammeno and Minister of Culture Mrs. Mendoni (GO AWAY!)

I think the minister is a woman? And she arrived with the Deputy PM?
