  1. Oh la la, trop de volants tuent le volant sur cette robe ; à mon avis, il me semble qu'en conservant les lignes de celle-ci mais avec moins de volants plus larges, cela serait plus élégant !

      In the 19th century when Greece became independent it needed a king. After a prince from Bavaria (whom they threw out) Greece choosed a Danish prince as their king. He was a clever man and made an agreement with his father (the king of Denmark) that he and his descendants can use the title "Prince of Greece and Denmark". That allows the members of the former royal house of Greece use the titles "prince" and "princess" - as Denmark still is a monarchy though Greece is not. (There possibly are some details missing, but this is the main story.)

    2. Dear Anonymous 11:08, this is an ongoing discussion. I agree with you - since Greece is not a monarchy anymore (the greek people decided to abolish monarchy in the year 1974) there is no "Prince", let alone "crown prince".

      Le prince Paul est le fils aîné et le deuxième enfant du roi Constantin II de Grèce (1940) et de son épouse la princesse Anne-Marie de Danemark (1946). Par son père, il est donc le petit-fils du roi Paul Ier de Grèce (1901-1964) et de la princesse Frederika de Hanovre (1917-1981) tandis que, par sa mère, il descend du roi Frédéric IX de Danemark (1899-1972) et de la princesse Ingrid de Suède (1910-2000)1. Neveu des reines Sophie d'Espagne (1938) et Margrethe II de Danemark (1940), Paul est également apparenté à la plupart des autres monarques du vieux continent en sa qualité de descendant de la reine Victoria du Royaume-Uni (1819-1901), surnommée la « grand-mère de l'Europe », et du roi Christian IX de Danemark (1818-1906), surnommé le « beau-père de l'Europe ». Le 1er juillet 1995, Paul épouse, à la cathédrale orthodoxe Sainte-Sophie de Londres, la roturière anglo-américaine Marie-Chantal Miller (1968), fille de Robert Warren Miller (1933) et de son épouse équatorienne María Clara Pesantes (1940)2. De ce mariage, naissent cinq enfants--

      They are referred to as such as a courtesy but no, they have no legal role in Greece.

    5. Marie-Chantal is very definately not a prince. She is the crown princess. of Greece. Her husband is Crown Prince. I am presuming the titles remain even of Greece no longer has an installed King.

      Pavlos is a Prince of Denmark due to that title being established by his Mother’s Father, the King of Denmark. His Mother was born Princess Anne Marie of Denmark. Greece did abolish its monarchy but I believe Pavlos was born when his Father was still King Constantine of Greece, hence he was born a Prince, although that is no longer recognized officially in Greece.

    Hereditary titles aside, which isn’t necessarily the point of this blog, I think Marie-Chantal is quite overdressed for the occasion (and the weather in the Hamptons). Pretty dress, no doubt, and she wears it well, just the wrong time and place to display it.

    Marie-Chantal’s dress is pretty and frothy for a summertime event. However, it rather overwhelms her small frame. Pavlos looks great.

    Absolutely, Greece does not have a monarchy however it is customary within royal circles to retain royal titles in spite of abolished thrones. It must be emphasized that Prince Pavlos has extensive royal connections and the most interesting pedigree. He is the grandson of a King of Denmark and a great grandson of a King of Sweden. He descends thrice through Queen Victoria. He is also directly related to Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh who was a Godfather to Prince Phillipos, Pavlos's brother. He is also directly related to the Royal House of Hanover.

    Pavlos's father Constantine was born a Prince and became the King of Greece, his mother Anne Marie was born a Princess of Denmark and became Queen of Greece. His father's sister is Sophia Queen of Spain, his mother's sister is Margarethe Queen of Denmark. His maternal first cousin is Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark while his paternal first cousin is Felipe, King of Spain. Pavlos's father is Godfather to Prince Christian and Prince William. Prince Charles is Godfather to Pavlos's daughter Princess Maria-Olympia. Prince William is Godfather to Pavlos's son Prince Constantine . Furthermore, Diana Princess of Wales was a Godmother to Princess Theodora, Pavlos's sister.

    Pavlos is Crown Prince of Greece, Duke of Sparta and Prince of Denmark. He will also be King of Greece/The Hellenes (as a formality) once his father passes on. This makes Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece, Duchess of Sparta, Princess of Denmark and future Queen of Greece/The Hellenes.

    So yes, Pavlos and Marie-Chantal are very royal indeed. They make such a lovely couple and have well adjusted children. God bless them all.

      Why for knowing everything about the former royal family of Greece ? I consider it as a lesson in history, a bit inevitable on this blog.
      It is true every former King or Queen are called by their title : i.e. Empress Farah Diba, Queen Fabiola of Belgium (when she was still alive), King Albert II of Belgium, Queen Paola of Belgium, all the Romanov's who are living all over Europe (U.K. included) are still called by their title, etc..., all the Habsburg archdukes and archduchesses that reigned over Austria and who had complementary titles like princess of Bohemia, king of Hungary, etc... They do not always use their former titles in every day life but at weddings, baptizing ceremonies, these titles are named.

    2. Anon 19:37. You seem to know nothing about her childhood family. Her father (Mr Miller) was a multimillionaire and she brought good money to her marriage with Pavlos. The Greek royals are not rich and are enjoying the hospitality of the other royals and rich friends. So, she brought the money and Pavlos made her royal, a perfect match.

  12. Not much fashion talk for the moment.
    Regarding titles etc. we have been down this road many times before on this blog.
    Fashion : I thing Princess Marie-Chantal's dress is too busy.
    Too many frills, lace and baubles.
    It would make, IMO, a nice short, informal wedding dress.....no?
    On the Zimmermann site they present it at a price of €1.600.00

    I am amazed that many posting comments here are not aware that Marie Chantal Miller is a millionaire in her own right. She is the daughter of billionaire Robert Warren Miller, founder of International DFS (Duty Free stores) the Galleria stores and large shareholder of LVMH. SHE is the one with the money! When they were married, the gossip columns sarcastically “reported” that Marie Chantal, who had everything she desired, said to her father, “Daddy, I want a Prince” … and he got it for her. They appear to have a beautiful marriage and family. May God continue blessing them.

    1. Thanks for your post @ Rita Maria. Nice story.
      My daddy didn’t provide me with a prince but with an obsessed amatuer fishingman.
      So instead of a life of ‘bling-bling’ Monte Carlo style, I’ve had a life of raising his kids, cooking his meals and cleaning the fish he occasionally catches.
      Oh, some are lucky, like Princess Marie Chantal and some aren’t.
