    Background: PRINCESS ANNE-MARIE OF DENMARK AND CROWN PRINCE CONSTANTINE OF GREECE APPEARED IN PUBLIC TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME YESTERDAY (THURSDAY). THE ROYAL COUPLE, WHOSE ENGAGEMENT WAS ANNOUNCED THE DAY BEFORE, WENT TO COPENHAGEN AIRPORT TO WELCOME THE GREEK KING AND QUEEN FROM ATHENS.

    LATER, THE 16-YEAR-OLD PRINCESS AND THE 23-YEAR-OLD HEIR TO THE GREEK THRONE APPEARED ON THE BALCONY OF AMALIENBORG PALACE IN THE DANISH CAPITAL. ABOUT 3,000 PEOPLE HAD GATHERED IN THE PALACE COURTYARD. IMMEDIATELY UNDER THE BALCONY STOOD ABOUT 100 GIRLS - CLASSMATES OF THE PRINCESS. PRINCESS ANNE-MARIE AND CROWN PRINCE CONSTANTINE WERE JOINED ON THE BALCONY BY THE DANISH AND GREEK KING AND QUEEN.

    THE WEDDING WILL TAKE PLACE NEXT YEAR, WHEN THE PRINCESS HAS FINISHED HER STUDIES. RUMOURS OF A ROMANCE SPREAD SOON AFTER SHE MET CROWN PRINCE CONSTANTINE AT A DANCE IN COPENHAGEN A YEAR AGO. THE YOUNG COUPLE THEN MET FREQUENTLY. PRINCESS ANNE-MARIE IS THE YOUNGEST OF THE THREE DANISH PRINCESSES.
