Prince Christopher of Greece, who died last week in Athens, was honored today with a special memorial service in New York City. A "solemn high mass" took place at he the Holy Trinity Cathedral of the Greek Orthodox church at 319 East 74th Street. "Prominent members" of the Greek community were among those who attend the service.
The Greek Consul General, Nicholas Lely, declared that Prince Christopher, who was an uncle of King George II, was "deeply mourned by Greece, not only because he was a member of 'a beloved dynasty but also because he was a great patriot.'"
The brief service was held at the Cathedral's high altar.
