The funeral, which was officiated by the Archbishop of Athens, Hieronymus of Thebes, was attended by the Deputy Prime Minister, Panagiotis Pikrammenos, representing the Hellenic Government. Representatives of numerous Royal Houses were also present, due to his family ties, friendship and his status as a former Head of State.
After the funeral, at which His Royal Highness Prince Paul of Greece said a few words, the King and Queen and the Greek Royal Family moved to the Royal Cemetery of Tatoi Palace, where the burial ceremony of His Majesty King Constantine of Greece took place.
His Majesty King Constantine of Greece passed away on 10 January at the age of 82 in Athens.
