Does anybody know of a book or article which covers the time these two sisters spent in Paris before marrying the Duke of Kent and Prince Paul of Yugoslavia? Many thanks.

Apparently it may be translated into English. That awful snob Taki (friend of the king) wrote about it in the 'Spectator':

Quote:
The memories remain. The only good thing about austerity is that no old buildings have been knocked down. Things have just got grubbier. During the concerts I sat with the Greek royal family, including King Constantine’s sister, Queen Sofia of Spain. The King has written his memoirs, or how things really were, finally telling his side of the story. Excerpts from the book tripled the circulation of the newspapers that carried them. The book is being translated into English and here is my proposal: King Constantine has agreed that I find him an English and American publisher. No one has a more interesting story to tell. King at 24 and married to the most beautiful princess in Europe, a coup-maker against the colonels on 13 December 1967, exiled after its failure, yet denied by opportunistic and lying politician his role as the first man to stand up to the military. And what a life he’s had despite that major setback. As a young crown prince he stayed with Eisenhower and de Gaulle, saw the Kennedys and LBJ up close, and knew every mover and shaker of his day, as they say. In the Rome Olympics in 1960 he won an Olympic gold medal in sailing.

A warning to anyone planning on reading or buying Panagiotis Dimitrakis' "Greece and the English: British Diplomacy and the Kings of Greece" IB Taurus 2009....

Do not waste your time or money on this book unless you really need to!

The above book is worse than what Trond says in his review. The research is actually really poor - very little research in Greece and nothing really new in terms of UK source material, with many important secondary sources missing from the bibliography, and no interviews.

Greece and the English also has little in the way of new thinking. It's just a rehash of the old arguments about the monarchy from the 1960s with very little attempt at analysis or gaining a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Dimitrakis really does not understand royalty and is actually really patronising and nasty in tone. I don't mind critical work, in fact I welcome it, as long as it's done well and takes its subject matter seriously and understand their worldview, than such an approach is laudable. Dimitrakis for some reason, hasn't been capable of this and the end result was highly disappointing.

There are also a number of typos and other errors - English is not the authors first language and it shows. For something from a publishing house like IB Taurus, I would expect much better, with much stronger editorial supervision.

RBN - Royal Book News: King Constantine II looking for an English-language publisher

Here's what Marlene had to say about this back in February. IF there is an English version, it's more likely to be abridged and probably skewed more in favour of royalty stuff instead of Greek political stuff.

This interview is from three years ago but thought it might be of interest

What a terrible shame. I'm sure there are many nuggets of pure gold left to discover about this relationship, from the 19th century and the manoeuvres to place the future King George I on the Greek throne onwards. Not to mention the machinations during World Wars I and II.

I'm glad I only got the google play version which was $10 NZ - a physical copy would be over $100 and I'm too cheep for interlibrary loans. I would give a cautious recommendation to Stan Draenos bio of Andreas Papandreou - good on context and research if used carefully - it's an official bio written with the supervision of the family and is vol 1 in a projected multi volume bio (also it's I B Taurus again)

Wow, fascinating snippets. I love it! So, has Constantine found an English language publisher, or are these translations and illustrations of what has already been published in Greece?

Im not sure. Stef told me back on the "KC and the Colonels" thread that a publisher has been found and an english edition may be coming out in November (most likely mid 2017 for this part of the world). Im not sure if this is the case or not; Stef is pretty reliable about these things but anything could happen.

The author is the charming and knowledgeable Mr. Costas Stamatopoulos.
