They live in an 18th-century mansion in London, decorated by François Catroux and hung with paintings by Damien Hirst, Donald Baechler, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
They have four children, with names straight out of Greek history: Olympia, Constantine, Achileas, and Odysseas.
And, more than 12 years into what started as an arranged alliance between European nobility and American money, Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Pavlos and Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece (as they are known despite the fact that Greece hasn’t been a monarchy since 1974) still seem to be blissfully in love. If you don’t have those elements, eventually it will start to fall apart.”“You’ve got to be comrades,” adds Pavlos.
At a time when many of Marie-Chantal’s contemporaries, including both of her sisters, Pia Getty and Alexandra von Fürstenberg, have had their seemingly perfect marriages end in early divorces, she and Pavlos continue to rank as one of international society’s most glamorous and popular couples, a position affirmed by the glittering “Angels and Demons” bash she threw last fall for his 40th birthday, which drew everyone from both infantas of Spain to News Corporation heir apparent James Murdoch.“They’ve been fabulous for one another,” says Pavlos’s cousin Prince Michael of Greece. The fact that they come from totally different backgrounds helps, because they learn from each other.”“You have to have a partnership,” says Marie-Chantal, when asked why she thinks their marriage has thrived. It all began in 1992 with a blind date, one that had been a year and a half in the making.
She has a line of children’s wear and recently opened her sixth shop, in Southampton, Long Island.
Both Marie-Chantal and Alexandra beat Kate Middleton to their own royal princes and fairy-tale weddings, and Pia married the closest thing America has to royalty: a Getty.
As Laura Jacob's mentioned in her 1995 Vanity Fair article, 'The Millers' Tale,' about the sisters "...beautiful daughters--especially those in fabled threes--have embodied epochal promise and plenty, a kingdom's or a culture's claim on the future." Now, 20 years later, the glare of the big weddings have faded away and I believe that Ms Jacob's edict has proven true.
