Diplo-Style: Marie Chantal Miller
Some people fall into the "oh she would be the perfect girl" category. Others fall in to the "oh they're the perfect couple" category. And a new category I've noticed of late is the "perfect family" category. Marie Chantal Miller, and Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece, seem to hit all three nails squarely on the head - aesthetically anyway. I'm sure, like all perfect people, there are things we don't see, but at least outwardly, they're pretty perfect - great looks, great gallivanting life...oh, and great royal title. From a country that doesn't have a monarchy since 1974. Ha! Where do I get one of those?
There's actually a pretty extensive article in Vanity Fair about the couple, which, apart from being an interesting read as a synopsis of the remains of the former Greek royal family, has quotations that only an exiled royal family could have :
“They’ve been fabulous for one another,” says Pavlos’s cousin Prince Michael of Greece. “As in the case of all our families, we’ve been around for a certain number of centuries, and Marie-Chantal brought fresh air. Not that we needed it, but it’s always good to have fresh air. She made Pavlos blossom. And he did a lot for her also."
These guys could practically be Austrian. Except for they're Greek. Also, Pavlos reports that for a successful marriage:
“You’ve got to be comrades”.
A rather populist statement for a rather unpopulist persona. But whatever, they're beautiful people. They clearly like to take care of their family and have fun - who doesn't? Marie-Chantal always looks stylish, dressed up or dressed down, tiara or no. And did I mention she birthed four children? Lookin' good in my book.
