King Charles pays tribute to late King Constantine of Greece with Greek flag tie


Britain’s King Charles III has paid tribute to his late cousin, the former King Constantine of Greece, on Wednesday, February 28 after being spotted wearing a tie covered in Greek flags.

King Charles was the second cousin to Constantine through their fathers. Constantine’s father, King Paul of Greece, and the Duke of Edinburgh were first cousins. They shared a grandfather, George I of Greece.

Due to his ongoing cancer treatment, King Charles was unable to attend Tuesday’s memorial service for Constantine at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. Instead, he was spotted dressed in a dark overcoat, navy suit, and white shirt paired with the Greek tie.

Prince William also didn’t attend the memorial, due to undisclosed ‘personal reasons.’

King Charles was last seen wearing a Greek flag tie at the COP28 summit in Dublin at the end of last year.

This followed discussions and disagreements regarding the Parthenon Marbles between British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
