And I do not think that the British Royal House was problems with Greece by Philip of Edinburgh, that seems very unfair to me.
The relations Greece, UK have not been bad, this has been HORRIBLE relations. why?

The Greeks have not had sympathy for the Britains for many years, even when there was monarchy in Greece, the Greeks did not love the British. For many reasons, but especially Cyprus. Many Greeks believe that Cyprus would be Greece today if Britain had not positioned with Turkey.... This provoked in 1955 a very serious conflict between Greece - Turkey, and Great Britain. This conflict has had a very serious impact on Greek politics for three decades. Today in our days, the island is divided, as you know...This don´t like to the greeks .

And second, the Parthenon Friezes, which as you know, are British soil and I do not need to extend the subject, because I think you already know what Greece is asking. If the British House wants “...come to terms with the reality " they know the way....

Let's not forget the "problematic" behaviour of the British backed authorities after the liberation from the Germans during WWII.

I said it was interesting - I did not say it was good. Let’s hope this visit might be the start of an improvement of Anglo-Greek relations.

The best relations between Great Britain and Greece were with the period of the monarchy, the monarchy always considered beneficial the relationship with Great Britain. King George, King Paul and the King Constantine, always maintained an excellent relationship with Britain, despite all the problems. The greek politicians and their ideologies, have been responsible for that distant relationship. I think this visit is good to Greece.

I only hope that politicians know how to appreciate and take advantage it .

Really enjoying catching up on this tour, seeing the photos and articles

I always love seeing these two on tour. May not be as exciting as the younger couples but I actually really enjoy them. Loved seeing the two of them participating in the dancing
