Re: Prince Michael of Greece
I believe he was on the Agamemnon cruise as were the two Royal heiresses in his age Beatrix and Margrethe. He shares with both women an interest in the arts and history but apparently not enough to start a romance.
Christina of Sweden, Benedikte of Denmark, Irene, Margriet and Christina of the Netherlands all were in the right age for him as was princess Irene of Greece. She was not his first cousin so that would have been another option.
Was Prince Michael ever linked to any potential royal brides?
I know that his marriage to Marina Kapella is a morganatic one. Nevertheless, their two daughters have been styled with the title Princess of Greece? What about the mother? And has at least the qualification of Highness ever applied to any of them?
Of course, Olga has been a Royal Highness since her marriage in 2008 to Prince Aimone of Savoy, Duke of Apulia. I'm assuming that that union is a dynastic one, from the standpoint of the house of Savoy -- correct?
They should be styled as Highnesses and Princesses of Denmark because it is not within Constantine IIís prerogative to deny them that title and style.
The Danish Lex Regia of the 1660s (I do not have the exact year on hand but I think itís somewhere between 1665-7) has never been fully revoked and one of its articles says that Danish princes given permission to settle abroad do not require the sovereignís consent to marry, and therefore Prince Michael did not need the consent of the Danish sovereign to marry and transmit his princely title to his daughters... because Prince William of Denmark was given permission to settle abroad and assume the Greek throne as King George I.
