Greek Royal Return

After 46 years of exile, King Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie have returned to live in Greece. A positive development, to be sure, but if only they were returning to reign as King and Queen once more! One of my monarchist contacts however speculates that while this is unlikely for Constantine himself, perhaps his return could lay the groundwork for a possible return to public life of future generations.

On a side note, it's interesting how leftists who in any other context would claim to be strongly opposed to any sort of racial bigotry never cease to harp on the Danish/German ancestry of the Greek royal family, who have identified with Greece since 1863 (or the German ancestry--now rapidly diminishing with each generation, Prince George being only about 3/16 German--of the British royal family).
