Queen Frederica of the Hellenes

In the first photo with Paul, Frederica and their children there is a strong family resemblance between Paul and his nephew, Prince Phillip.

Philip was not Paul's nephew. They were first cousins, as their fathers were brothers.

Wonderful photos Marlene! Which is the event in photo number 11? Identities?

always get a little confused about the Greeks, three brothers who were all the King. I was thinking Paul was a generation older than he was. Even as I typed "uncle" I was second guessing myself. Thanks.

the photo is from Princes Irene's baptism in South Africa. General Smuts is holding Irene. The older woman in front is Princess Marie, wife of Prince George, who is in the backrow

Princess Katherine is next to Frederika

The photos with a young curly-haired Sofia remind me so much of Infanta Leonor at similar ages.
