Re: Mitterand at Elizabeth II's coronation?
He was the delegated minister for the council of Europe in 1953 so as a cabinet member in the 4th republic he was the one to officially represent the French Republic for the event.
I saw an interview with Prince Michael regarding his familial relationship with the 'father-in-law of Europe', i.e., King Christian IX of Denmark. Moreover, Prince Michael appeared to be a very colorful character per his facial expressions when talking about various family members.
Furthermore, as I recall from the episode, Michael re-told a story of a Greek relative, princess, that attended the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. He further stated that this princess, I don't recall her relationship to Michael, found this ceremony extremely boring. The said princess leaned over and spoke to the future president of France, Francois Mitterand, to ask, something to the effect for she, the princess, to perform a sťance and he agreed.
Francois Mitterand in attendance at Queen Elizabeth II's coronation?? In what capacity was he present on that occasion?
