The daughter of industrialist Theodoros Karellas and Elli Halikiopoulou, she was born and raised in Athens, and educated at the Athens School of Fine Arts, the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg.  In 1965, she married Prince Michael of Greece, the son of Prince Christopher of Greece and Princess Francoise of Orleans, who gave up his rights to the Greek Throne. Princess Michael is an accomplished artist and sculptor, having exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Madrid, Brussels, Rome, and London.
