Here's a profile of Constantine. They show behind the scenes footage from P and MC's wedding. Also they tour the grounds of Tatoi.
Tatoi is private property which was purchased by Constantine's ancestor using his personal funds.

But, Tatoi was taken away from them, it belongs to the state of Greece nowadays. I still wonder that the present government let them bury ex-King Konstantine there, although it is not anymore their property.


As far as I understood, the castle/villa and the grounds are state property, the burying ground (and maybe the chapel? still belongs to the GRF.

Here’s a link to The Court Jeweller’s post regarding King Constantine’s funeral and the attendees.

After looking at the array of his medals, I was wondering if he wasn't a stranger Knight of the Garter?  Or did that honor elude him?

I've not seen it said anywhere that he was. I would also imagine that it would be tricky to give him the Garter either when he was no longer King or when the junta where in charge - yes it is in the British Sovereign's personal gift but a government would still be able to protest it.

That makes sense. I had wondered if his reputed closeness to the BRF would be able to trump political issues with respect to the Garter. I guess not.

I imagine the politics of the time kept QEII from conferring it on him.

QE11 was very aware of optics - so in the earlier years not happening and in later years probably not relevant to either of them

They hadn't exchanged State Visits.  She usually handed it out when receiving a fellow monarch on a State Visit.

So has anyone seen hide nor hair of Anne-Marie since the funeral? I know the first months after the death of a spouse are usually a tough time, with a lot of disorganization and changes of plans until everything is figured out.

Is she at all close to Pavlos and MC? I'm hoping she gets a lot of support from the kids. And from her two sisters as well. Maybe she's gone to Denmark to be with Daisy after the Queen's surgery . . . .
