Parade in Athens in honor of George I. On horses, from right to left, the Crown Prince Constantine, the future king, King Paul of Greece, Prince Pierre and myself. I have always hated horses. Mounting a horse was always a nightmare, particularly on this day. I was worried over the smallest mishap, and the ridicule that a fall might provoke. #photographscollection
