You're welcome Thissal. :) I don't know if any specific photos were taken at Mon Repos, but according to this exert of an article I found (link below :)), Princess Alexia was born there. So perhaps some of the pictures of the King and Queen with the daughter was in fact at Mon Repos.

"King Constantine came to the throne with much goodwill, which was expressed in abundance when, on 18 September 1964 (six months after his accession) he married his beautiful Danish Princess in what was described at the time, as 'the most radiant of Athenian royal weddings'. Even an old republican, the 76 year old Prime Minister, George Papandreou, was seen to be enjoying himself thoroughly with the bride and bridegroom.

Just before the wedding, a crisis in Cyprus brought Greece to the brink of war with Turkey and serious political problems developed in Greece.

These overshadowed the celebrations of the birth of Queen Anne-Marie's first child, Princess Alexia, on 10 July 1965. She was the first member of the Royal Family to be born at 'Mon Repos' in Corfu since 1921, when Prince Philip of Greece, now Duke of Edinburgh. 'Mon Repos' is an old Georgian house which, in the 18th. Century, was the summer residence of the English Governor of Corfu. "

King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie
King Constantine, born in 1940 was king of Greece 1964-1973. He married Princess Anne-Marie, youngest daughter of Frederik IX of Denmark. In April 1967 the 'Colonels' military junta took power and the king fled to Rome in December. He was formally deposed in June 1973 and the monarchy was abolished by national referendum in 1974.

28-11-2002 (Arkiv) En årelang retssag om ekskong Konstantin og eksdronning Anne-Maries tidligere besiddelser i Grækenland er slut. Den Europæiske Menneskerettighedsdomstol i Strasbourg dømte torsdag d. 28. november den græske stat til at betale det tidligere kongepar og deres nærmeste familie cirka 100 millioner kroner i godtgørelse. Selv vurderer Konstantin på sin hjemmeside ejendommene til at have en samlet værdi af 3,58 milliarder kroner. Arkivfoto: Optagelsesdato usikker.

Polfoto 01-01-1965 Menneskerettighedsdomstolen i Strasbourg gav torsdag den tidligere græske konge medhold i, at han har ret til sin ejendom i Grækenland. Med 15 mod 2 dommerstemmer anklagede retten den græske stat for brud på menneskerettighederne ved med den græske højesteretsbeslutning at have konfiskeret den tidligere konges ejendom. Den omfatter residensen Tatoi nord for Athen, et land- og skovområde "Polydendron" i Midtgrækenland og palæet "Mon Repos" på Korfu. Retten vil senere tage stilling til ekskongens krav om erstatning på omkring 1,4 milliarder dollars. Ekskong Konstantin og hans danskfødte dronning Anne-Marie har levet i eksil i London siden 1967.
