If Constantine hadn't snapped her up, Anne-Marie would have made an interesting wife for Charles. They're only a year or two apart in age.

Possibly, but very unlikely. They possibly would have got married in the 1970s, and at that time senior royal men hardly ever married a girl or woman older than themselves. When I look at Constantine and Anne-Marie´s wedding Charles, then 15, looked, comparing to AM, like a "little boy".
When I compare the greek King with Charles it takes a lot of my phantasy to think Anne-Marie would have ever felt more for the british Prince beyond "cousinly affection"...
I think she made the best choice for herself!

I've just noticed the Prince of Wales behind the then queen Beatrix her famous hairstyle blocking him ;)

kalnel 06-29-2020 09:06 PM

I agree with you about her choice! Constantine certainly cut a more dashing figure than young Charles.

But, they are only two years apart. England's loss.

Lovely pics thanks.
Pic no 2 is very famous, taken after the colonels putch April 1967. The King explained that he was practically a hostage of the colonels, and without any way to communicate with Greek people, so he had this sad figure on purpose trying to communicate his disapproval of the dictature. Unfortunately message was not clear enough.
Picture no 5, as well the last one of the then happy couple are very touching.
In the Pic of the christening, does anyone have a clue who is the lady near to the princess of Whales?
