From Hola
Constantino y Ana María de Grecia inician la celebración de sus bodas de oro con una cena informal

By the way, here is the family connection of King Costantine to King Simeon, if someone can remember, it goes far behind, thanks to wonderful Leo's page

This anniversary makes me very melancholic. I watched last night the video of their wedding, and the image of the so young, so beautiful, so innocent bride Princess/Queen made me very sad. I also listen to the comments of the presenter, talking about their youth, their beauty, the love of their people and their future full of love and hapiness....
All the signs before their wedding were of a fairy tale. A young and beautiful girl, daughter of a King, sister of a future Queen, raised in love, calm and hapiness, with an absolutely expected happy future...married her love, a young and handsome King. The end should only be "and they lived happily ever after"...
But no, only 4 years and 2 (almost 3) kids after, this fairy taily girl has found herself running to escape, facing financial problems, and hoping to find a country to accept her.. and living the 45 next years abroad of her two homelands.
I wonder if the Queen feels this melancoly, or if she has accepted her life, she always looks so sweet, so resigned, a true lady.

Coming back to the celebration, does someone know where is the tonight's event being held ?? Furtermore very good choice of the Acropolis Museum, but outfits of Marie-Chantal & Tatiana were a catastrophy. I loved the Queen, Pcs Alexia & Pcs Theodora, Quenn Sophia so and so, Pcs Irene nothing special, but this is her way.

Why? BFR and GRF are very close. The Queen attended KKII anniversary in London, a few years ago. The less major members, like the Kents and Gloucesters why not?

Let's not forget that the Kents are half-Greek through Princess Marina. But I don't see them on the guest list though there are some from the Brandram family.

One thing that puzzles me about the guest list is that the wife of Prince Michael is listed as HRH Princess Marina. Is it a typo or has her status been changed?

Of course, this is the reason also that I thought they would attend.

Maybe the reason for members of the BRF not attending is the referendum today? It might reflect badly upon them if they partied while the future of their country was being decided.

Queen Elizabeth II,occasionally , has authorized to represent the royal house , in public acts, to Kents and Gloucester's . I remember that the appointment of the new Pope Francisco were in representation of the royal house of Britain', the Gloucesters . the referendum has interest to them.
