Greek Royal Family - Photos from the past

If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
I don't know the history/context of this quote, so could you please explain what he meant by this? :flowers:

Do not get excited. The story is quite innocent.
Anne-Marie was very youthful with a disarming smile that had captivated the Greeks. Prime minister Geroge Papandreou, well in his 70s at the time (1960s), liked her very much.
He was famous as an orator and grandiloquent parliamentarian as well as for his wit. Jokingly, of course, he would often intentionally accord his spoken word a double entendre.
He would enjoy having dinner with the royal couple, with Anne-Marie sitting between him and her husband and the following morning Papandreou would say, "Last night, Constantine and I shared Anne-Marie" and he would be so happy, like a child.
And I made this reference only to stress the fact that Anne-Marie was very popular among all Hellenes, from the the prime minister down.

Here are two more covers with pics of the family:

Hola 1965

Hola 1974

It would really be interesting to see more of the second photo session :)
Anne-Marie was a very beautiful young lady and nowadays she looks splendid.

There are great pictures on this thread, thanks for posting them.


Wow! She was so beautiful when she was younger (and still is). In the second photo, you can really see the resemblance between Anne-Marie and Theodora, IMO.
Thank you for the 2nd picture,Iceflower!!I rarely have the chance to see Nikolaos as a kid.I almost forgot that he was blonde,too.
What a beautiful couple and what a beautiful story. I still remember when they were married - she was so young, so was he. They had beautiful children and are now proud grandparents. May God always bless them.
Light-color eyes can change very easily.It depends on the light.
I agree with you that Anna-Maria is much more beautiful than Theodora and Alexia as well.It's strange:although she gave birth to 3 handsome sons,her daughters are rather average-looking.
The Queen has that beauty that comes from within. No matter what cards her life has dealt her she always appears serene and sweet.
For me at least she will always be the beautiful 18 year old princess who married her young king back in 1964.
BTW I believe that neither Alexia nor Theodora are average looking. They both are beautiful ladies.:flowers:
I mean they are not breath-taking....there so many really beautiful women out there...

That does not mean that Alexia and Theodora are not beautiful. They both have the aristocratic beauty and class that only true blue bloods have.
You find Alexia and Theodora unique in other words....I wouldn't bet on that.
What a beautiful, regal lady, is Queen Anne Marie. She was breathtakingly lovely when she married and still retains her looks. I think her two daughters, Alexia and Theodora, have their own kind of beauty. As a matter of fact, the whole brood of children and now the grandchildren are fantastic.
the prettiest Queen ever!!!

I have to mention that a poem follows the above picture, a poem written by a fervent Greek-Australian(Melbourne) royalist, who had founded the Union of Melbourne Royalists... (King at home on Flickr - Photo Sharing!)
However, the pic is magnificent!

Thank you!! thank you!!!

In the photos of the Queen Anne Marie, I can see the resemblance with Prince Pavlo, also Pavlo has many traits of his father.. The Queen Anne is very pretty woman.

I admire people who appreciate the values and principles monarchists .... I think they have much merit because, they keep alive the ideology.:previous:

I found a very nice picture of Konstantine sitting beside radiant Elizabeth Tailor in 1958 in a cinema (Pallas) in Athens. It was the first show of the movie "around the earth in 80 days". The royal family was the official guest of the first show. Konstantin was a student then...

He was very handsome when he was younger. I can definitely see a resemblance to his sons.
I don't know. Notice that the women are all in black...
She was so beautiful as a young woman (and still is today). I can't imagine being Queen at that age - or a mother of two by my 21st birthday, either. You know, I don't think I've ever seen any photos of her when she was expecting either Alexia or Pavlos. Are there any?
Looking at the fourth of your pics, BELTRANEJA, it's quite
impressing to see how large Athens has already been at
that time. The first two pics have something magical, there's
a certain lightness and amorousness in them and that in
front of that very special historical background. Very nice!
So thanks for posting :flowers:
Queen Anne Marie is a very impressive woman and still very sweet to people who greeting her. An wonderful example of how a Queen must be!
Pictures of Constantine and Anne Marie in the Acropolis.
Truly magnificent photos!!! Thank you!!!!!!
AM was really impressive and although young very regal.
She would have made an excellent queen if the political situation was better...!!!

The picture of the then Princess Anne Marie greeting Queen Frederica
is one of the most moving I have seen in a long time. It shows how happy and innocent the young princess was. Beautiful image.:flowers:
