During an interview later in life, she put it thus: "I never wanted to be a queen. Even as a child, I hated the idea. One of the reasons I accepted my husband's marriage proposal was that I didn't think he stood a good chance of ever sitting on the throne of Greece (the Greek monarchy was in a state of fluctuation, as of their wedding in 1921) ..."
Some queens have been stripped of their titles, legally or otherwise; but there have been some who have voluntarily renounced them. In an above post, I mentioned the three Dutch queens regnant after abdication.
