Aspasia Manos, who is pregnant with the king's child, is living in seclusion in the Crown Prince's former residence. This is a temporary arrangement as the Greek royal family is returning to Greece, due to the recent election that re-established the monarchy.
Aspasia is living in straightened circumstances as she awaits the probate of the king's will, which recognizes Aspasia as Alexander's heir. His estate is worth about $175,000.
