I don´t think this pictures was taken to celebrate the 100 years anniversary of the Greek Monarchy. I think it was taken to celebrate the engagement of Constantine and Anne Marie, as you said before. Most people in this picture are members of Greek and Danish Royal Families.

definitely not the engagement. My mistake, but the photo appears in the book The Inheritors of Alexander ... and of course the King George I was born Prince Vilhelm of Denmark.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Greek Monarchy King Paul invited many royal families, I don´t remember all royals were in there but I remember the Count of Barcelona and his son Juan Carlos were in Athens for this occasion...but they are not in this picture. I know of course King George I was born Prince of Denmark, I meant if most people in this picture were Greek and Danish royals is because they were celebrating something important for them, it shoulbe the royal engagement.

Definitely the 100th anniversary. Tino and Anne Marie are not the center of attention. The photo was first published in The Inheritors of Alexander the Great by George Tzantzos - and he got the photo (and ids from Princess Tatiana Radziwill
