    Background: PRINCESS MARGARET AND HER HUSBAND LORD SNOWDON ARRIVED IN ATHENS YESTERDAY AFTERNOON (SATURDAY) FOR A TWO-WEEK HOLIDAY AS GUESTS OF GREEK SHIPPING MAGNATE MR. STAVROS NIARCHOS. THEY FLEW FROM LONDON IN A COMET JET, AND WAITING AT HELLENIKON AIRPORT, ATHENS, TO GREET THEM WERE SIR RALPH MURRAY, THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR, LADY MURRAY, AND THE MARCHIONESS OF BLANDFORD, SISTER-IN-LAW OF MR. NIARCHOS.

    THE RECEPTION WAS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THEIR DESIRE FOR "STRICT INFORMALITY." THE PRINCESS WAS WEARING A GREEN SILK FROCK WITH WHITE JACKET AND MATCHING HAT AND SHOES.

    THE COUPLE THEN DROVE TO THE BAY OF VOULIAGMENI, 16 MILES (26 KILOMETRES) SOUTH-EAST OF ATHENS, WHERE THEY BOARDED MR. NIARCHOS' YACHT CREOLI. THEY SAILED OVERNIGHT FOR THE TINY ISLET OF SPETSOPOULA, 60 MILES (96 KILOMETRES) FROM ATHENS, WHICH MR. NIARCHOS HAS LEASED.

    A WIRE-NETTING BARRIER HAS BEEN BUILT IN THE SEA AROUND THE ISLAND SO THAT THEY CAN SWIM IN PRIVACY AND WITHOUT DANGER FROM SHARKS.
