Legally, it wasn't that clear. The 1864 consitution and every one after that stated that the succession to the throne included " All the legal descendants of King George I , of eastern orthodox faith, with preference over the males" (that is my own traslation from greek). So , the wording isn't clear - does this mean that All males come before ALL females (semi salic ) or that this applies to each generation of descendants (male primogeniture)? Then , in the early years of Paul's reign, the government issued a statement that "clarified" the matter and said that the true meaning of the article refered to male primogeniture. The thing is, in Greece you can't just add an asterisk to an article of the consitution and say it's ok now - the proper way is to call for elections declaring that this would be a parliament authorized to revise the consitution, form a new government, create a new article regarding the succesion and then legalize it with the parliament's majority. This was nearly impossible in the 50s and 60s, with the post civil war atmosfere, because there was very little trust between political sectors - what if the succession was used as the Trojan Horse in order to form a parliament that would a revise also other constitutional articles? So everyone played stupid , thinking that " Oh well, the family with have a prince eventually and all be good".

According to Wikipedia there is a prince Paul, born in 2019 as son of prince Philippos, in line of succession to the Greek throne.

Quote:
King Paul (1901–1964)
King Constantine II (born 1940)
(1) Crown Prince Pavlos (b. 1967)
(2) Prince Constantine-Alexios (b. 1998)
(3) Prince Achileas-Andreas (b. 2000)
(4) Prince Odysseus-Kimon (b. 2004)
(5) Prince Aristidis-Stavros (b. 2008)
(6) Princess Maria-Olympia (b. 1996)
(7) Prince Nikolaos (b. 1969)
(8) Prince Philippos (b. 1986)
(9) Prince Paul (b. 2019)
(10) Princess Theodora (b. 1983)
(11) Princess Irene (b. 1942)
See: wikipedia

This of course cannot be right as Philippos isn't married... and I am not aware of any son (who wouldn't be in line for the throne given that he isn't married).

Yes its a mistake. The problem with Wikipedia as a source, anyone can edit it. And until someone spots a mistake and gets it corrected it remains. Philppos isn't married and has no children. If he did have a son out of wedlock, he certainly wouldn't be a prince or in line of succession.

Of course, it's not true but I wonder where this whole idea is coming from: is it a prank? Did Nina give birth to a son (and does someone mistakenly think that son would be in line of succession?).

Note: I just checked it: someone made this erroneous edit on May 22.

I can find no sign of even a rumor that Nina is pregnant or had a child. Nina is quite well known on her own, being the daughter of a famous Swiss billionaire. Certainly between the two of them, if they had a son, it would be well known or at least rumored.
