May He Rest in Piece ! He passes away in the Country where he was King. Queen Anne Marie was a devoted wife since years.
Pavlos and Marie Chantal left Greece for New York , wil they come back to Greece as King and Queen ?

I'm glad his suffering is over. May he rest in peace and may his family take comfort in the huge and loving family he helped create. I hope the Hellenic Republic show's him due honour as former head of state.

Such sad news and somewhat unexpected it seems given that some of his children had left the country after visiting him. However, at least they got to see him over the last week. My heartfelt condolences to the family but especially his widow, queen Anne Marie.

May the king rest in peace.
My condolences to the entire family.

This Wednesday morning, an inter-ministerial meeting will be held, to take decisions on King Constantine's funeral rites.

A statement on the former king's death will be issued tomorrow, Wednesday, by his family, but also by the Hygeia hospital, where he was hospitalized and ended after serious health problems.

That is very sad. What a grand man, Constantine was. His eyes always exuded warmth. The story of how Frederik IX locked him in the toilet after he'd asked for permission to marry Anne-Marie is one of the all-time greats. May he rest in peace.

I'm unfamiliar with that story. Would you mind sharing it?

He died in Greece, at home. That's good.

With his family having had time to say their goodbyes, or at least be there for him. That's not a bad way to go.
