In 1973, there was a referendum in Greece to confirm the
abolition of the Greek Monarchy.
69 % voted against the monarchy,
while 31 % voted pro.

Since then, Constantine II and his wife,
Queen Anne-Marie live in exile in London.

So, this was the Weekend Special.

For me it was the perfect occasion to deepen myself in the
maze of European Royal History.
I hope you liked it too. I wish you all a wonderful evening and a
good start of the week.
