A memorial service for Greece’s former and last monarch, Constantine II, was held at the Athens Metropolitan Cathedral on Saturday, led by Archbishop of Athens & All Greece Hieronymos, in the presence of his family and some 250 guests.

It was held to mark the forty days since the ex-king’s funeral and burial, which were also held in Athens.

His sisters Sofia and Irini arrived at the cathedral shortly before 11:00, followed a short while later by his widow Anne-Marie, his sons Pavlos, Nikolaos and Phillipos, and his daughters Alexia and Theodora, accompanied by their spouses.

Close friends and schoolmates of the former king attended the service, alongside personalities from the spectra of business and politics.

Following the memorial service, family and guests were expected to attend a lunch gathering at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
