Greek royalist hopes for a restoration of the monarchy "were sent skyrocketing today" by the news from Bucharest that former Queen Elizabeth has agreed to go to London to meet with her estranged husband, King George II, reports the Associated Press.

Republicans are dismayed at this news, which is see as "doubling former King George's drawinng power" in the forthcoming plebiscite on the monarchy, which is expected to take place after the June 9 elections.
