This is one of my favourite royal subject photographs, which I always enjoy seeing it. It was made in January 1938 when Helen’s brother, Paul, the diadoch of Greece, married Frederika of Hanover. King Michael, then the Crown Prince of Romania, an inveterate photographer since his early years, takes snaps of the famous historical site of Athens.


I endeavor in the “Weekly Pictures” post series to bring to light worthy of note, often less known images from the royal past and present and thus further enhance the understanding of royal history and what it represents for us.
