    Background: CROWN PRINCE CONSTANTINE, APPOINTED REGENT OF GREECE DURING HIS FATHER'S ILLNESS, MET HIS FIANCEE, PRINCESS ANNE-MARIE OF DENMARK, YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) WHEN SHE FLEW INTO ATHENS.

    THE 17 YEAR-OLD PRINCESS HAD FLOWN DIRECT FROM SWITZERLAND, WHERE SHE IS AT SCHOOL, TO SEE KING PAUL OF GREECE NOW RECOVERING FROM AN OPERATION FOR STOMACH ULCERS. LATEST BULLETINS SAY THE KING'S CONDITION CONTINUED TO IMPROVE BUT TODAY CAME NEWS THAT QUEEN FREDERIKA IS SUFFERING FROM LOCALISED PNEUMONIA.

    THE CROWN PRINCE AND PRINCESS ANNE-MARIE LEFT THE AIRPORT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY IN PRINCE CONSTANTINE'S FAST AMERICAN SPORTS CAR. THEY DROVE STRAIGHT TO THE TATOI PALACE.

    PRINCE CONSTANTINE IS 23 YEARS OLD. HE'S BEEN SCHOOLED IN HANDLING STATE AFFAIRS SINCE HE WAS A SMALL BOY. A KEEN YATCHSMAN, HE REPRESENTED GREECE AT THE ROME OLYMPICS IN 1960 AND WON A GOLD MEDAL IN THE DRAGON CLASS.

    HE BECAME ENGAGED TO ANNE-MARIE YOUNGEST DAUGHTER OF KING FREDERICK AND QUEEN INGRID OF DENMARK, IN JANUARY LAST YEAR. THEY ARE TO BE MARRIED IN ATHENS EARLY IN 1965.
