A Greek salutes his King

(I'm currently in HM's Dominion of Canada attending the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute in Toronto, so don't have a lot of time for blogging, but wanted to link to this article.)

Earlier this month exiled HM Constantine II, King of the Hellenes (1964-74), celebrated his 70th birthday with a grand party attended by many distinguished guests including HM Queen Elizabeth II. One of the other guests was the controversial right-wing Greek journalist Taki, who despite youthful republicanism and occasional irreverence towards other royalty has always spoken respectfully of his king, who he defends in "The Crown Knows Best."

Ah, Taki is always a delight! One of my favorite columnists.
