ALEXIA OF GREECE PRESENTS NEWBORN DAUGHTER AMELIA

31 OCTOBER 2007

Sleeping peacefully in her mother's arms, the newest member of the Greek royal family made her debut on Wednesday. Little Amelia left the Spanish clinic where she was born on October 26 with her parents – Princess Alexia of Greece and Spaniard Carlos Morales Quintana - and three young siblings by her side.

Arrietta, five, Ana Maria, four, and two-year-old Carlos, who had also made their entrance into the world at Barcelona's Teknon Clinic, will no doubt be looking forward to welcoming their new sister back at the family home in Lanzarote.

Amelia won't realise it yet, but she belongs to one of the best-connected families in Europe. Her maternal grandparents are ex-King Constantine and Queen Anna-Maria of Greece - who's also a member of the Danish royal family. Princess Alexia, 42, recently became godmother to Denmark's newest princess, Isabella – daughter of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.
