Prince Michael of Greece

Prince Michael of Greece

Happy Birthday to Prince Michael of Greece, who turns 78 today. The son of Prince Christopher of Greece and Princess Francoise of Orleans, Prince Micheal is the first cousin of the Duke of Edinburgh, the late Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, Princess Paul of Yugoslavia, Queen Helen of Romania and the Count of Paris. Orphaned at quite an early age, Prince Micheal lived with his maternal family before moving to Athens after reaching the age of majority, and performing official duties for King Paul and King Constantine. In 1965, he married a well-known painter and sculptor, Marina Karella, giving up his his rights to the Greek Throne. Prince Michael is one of my favorite authors, with books like The White Night of St. Petersburg (2000) and Sultana (1983). He regularly gives interviews relating to his royal heritage and also writes an interesting blog, with stories of his travels and family. Prince and Princess Michael have two daughters (including the Duchess of Apulia) and five grandchildren. They live between Paris and Greece.
