IMHO the crown prince couple seem like rich playboys having fun with life on the dark blue seas of the Mediterranean. MC goes from one fashion show to another, as does her daughter showing off all the money MC's father gives them yet nobody seems to take any interest in the issues of Greece. Both the king and queen are elderly now and he can't really travel much from what I have seen here. If I was Greek I sure in the heck would not want them to represent me in the world and that is me only here, nobody else, Just my opinion. They seem like very empty people to me........all the jewels, money and titles do not make a person a royal person!

Yes that is really true, they act more like celebrities than Royals, it doesn't really help the monarchist cause because they're really out of touch with the Greek people, I believe after the passing of King Constantine II, the popularity of the Greek Royal Family will further decrease because of their lifestyle.

I also believe Princess Alexia should have stayed as heir to the Greek throne because she's quite humble in comparison to her other siblings but unfortunately due to male preference that's not the case :(

In my opinion prince Nicholas and princess Tatiana are the ones in their generation carrying the flame and promoting Greece. Alexia and her family live a quiet life on Lanzarote, princess Theodora embraced Hollywood, and seems to live a pretty normal life for a high society figure with a good education and good connections. It's mainly the crown prince family that seems extravagant (thanks to the money Marie-Chantal('s family) brings in).

However, that's rather off-topic as it doesn't pertain to the Greek orders...

Did princess Olympia and prince Konstantinos receive their orders (on their 18th birthday for example)?

No they haven't received any orders, but they don't really have any ceremonies to attend to be wearing them at, possibly when there older and they attend a foreign royal ceremony

If the main mission of a king is to attract investment to the country, I believe that Paul would be a good king of Greece, he has an impressive business agenda, possibly better than many European kings. It would be perfect to attract investment to any state. Regarding his life. I see that many people who follow European monarchies, the only thing that interests them is that brand dress, they are those jewels worn by their queen, where she is on vacation, in what luxurious restaurant she eats, how luxurious her palace .. For this reason, I do not believe that the life of the Crown Prince is debatable,.

Regarding Greece. since 1974 laws have been drawn up in Greece exclusively for the extermination of the Royal House, from a law to remove the passport, laws to remove the statues of kings, even to change the streets of name .... in the history books, the history the kings does not appear, so for example, in the conquest of Thessalonica, .... History in Greece is distorted and depressed. in the Greek ministries hangs the pictures of communist guerrilla leaders ....

Prince Paul could invent a character, behave like a ruling prince, and share the photos:
He could publish the photos delivering the titles to the students of Prince Charles's foundation, posing at home sitting on a chair in the form of a throne, strolling with the pictures of the Greek kings, he could even put pictures of Greek anarchist demonstrations and say which are manifestations against the system, soon there will be monarchy ...
But the prince does not have as much free time to do it.

It all depends of the economy and stability of the country, Greece does not want a royal family who lead a lavish lifestyle whilst the others struggle to make ends meet. As for Queen Anne-Marie, her private life is not publicised so as much as many royalists and others would want to see how she lives, the best way is the privacy because it doesn't offend either parties... and as for palaces, the Queen nor the Crown Princess own any palaces.

If he'd create this character what would be the point if he's genuinely not interested in the interests of the Greek people, your description of the character of the Crown Prince is delusional, there's no point in putting up a front when people will be able to see straight through him.. he needs to be in touch with his people and see how life is for them, until he doesn't do so, the majority of Greeks won't accept him. But believe me, if they have plenty of time to be holidaying, they have lots of time on their hands

Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece wore the order of Order of Saints Olga and Sophia and her younger brother but what order did Prince Constantine-Alexios wear and does anyone know when both orders were conferred?
