New York Times features Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of GreeceLike many New Yorkers, she is staying inside, except for walking the dogs

The New York Times featured Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece in the article “How Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece Spends Her Sundays.” The Times reported that “Like many New Yorkers, she is staying inside, except for walking the dogs. But at home, she has a foosball table.”

The Times then pointed out that “in 1985, Marie-Chantal Miller was a sophisticated high school student who had just started interning with Andy Warhol, when a family friend introduced her to Prince Pavlos of Greece,” and “ten years later, they married. She became Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece.”

“Although the Greek Monarchy officially ended in the 1970s, the couple kept their titles, and to this day, occasionally perform ceremonial duties,” the Times reported, adding that “they are also New Yorkers, and these days, they are washing their hands and practicing social distancing like the rest of us.”

Marie-Chantal, 51, is the Founder and Creative Director of her own line of children’s clothing and recently published an etiquette book for children, titled Manners Begin at Breakfast.

She and Prince Pavlos, 52, have five children- daughter Olympia, 23, and sons Constantine, 21, Achilleas, 19, Odysseas, 15, and Aristides, 11. The family resides in a townhouse on the Upper East Side along with their dogs Akila and Storm, the Times reported.

Marie-Chantal described her typical day, the Times reported, “On weekdays, I wake up super early; on weekends it’s about an hour later than usual, around 7:30 or 7:45. My husband will get the dogs out and take them for a walk while I get breakfast ready: on Sunday, we’ll make something special. Either we’ll order bagels from H & H Bagels or make pancakes. I always set the table nicely because I believe in always having a pretty, set breakfast table. My youngest child will be down by 9. The older kids, whoever’s in the house, will kind of wander down between 9 and 11.

“We have a rule — which I try to enforce as best I can — which is no screens at the table. Sometimes I’m guilty on a weekend because on my iPad is where I read my news. So it’s allowed to a limit. But I really enforce no phones. Meals are a time where you learn so much from one another; it’s where you really kind of figure out what your kids are up to and what they’re doing.”

Marie-Chantal told the Times that “now, we’re doing a lot of family cooking, ordering in, and I’m sharing recipes with my daughter, Olympia. My husband is also teaching her backgammon. If everybody’s done their homework, we’ll put in a movie and play foosball together. I grew up in Paris, and we had one in our house growing up. We called it ‘baby foot.’ I loved it. I’ve always played with the kids. So we’ll always put in a game, weekdays, weekends. It’s super fun. It’s very, very competitive. But I think I’m quite good at it. So I can beat two out of the five kids.”

She continued, “On a Sunday night, the kids love a takeout meal… Everything is plated, and I take things and put them in bowls. I really like to make it the dining experience, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner. And whether it’s takeout, it’s just to make it look pretty and the tables are set. And if we choose to do a TV dinner, which is usually on a Sunday, everything is placed on trays with little napkins and little tablecloths and nicely plated with everything laid out properly,” the Times reported.

“Then the kids will go up to their rooms, finish their homework, get ready for bed. I’ll read to my youngest one, Aristides. We’ve been reading The Chronicles of Narnia over the course of the past two years. And we have a bet that it has to be finished before the summer holiday. We have two books left to read, and we’re going to do it,” Marie-Chantal said, the Times reported.
