6. Royal in name only

The Greek Monarchy was abolished in 1974, but that has not stopped the kids of deposed Greek King Constantine II from living privileged lives. Since the monarchy is no longer technically ruling, Princess Theodora and her siblings have been able to do things that otherwise might have been frowned upon. Theodora was raised in England. She got her B.A. in Theater Arts from Brown University. After college she headed to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting under the name Theodora Greece.

7. Invite of the season

Princess Theodora grew up in England in the royal set. Her wedding is sure to be the invite of the season for the young royals of Europe.
