Who needs a palace? Inside the exiled Greek royal family’s VERY lavish homes around the world – including a Cotswolds bolthole, a £2.4M Chelsea townhouse and a Bahamas escape
- Crown Prince Pavlos, 51, and Princess Marie Chantal, 48, have an expansive property portfolio, including Bahamas holiday home
- Currently live in New York as their eldest children are studying at university
- Previously lived in Chelsea mansion where average home costs £2.4M
- Have a country estate in Yorkshire and bolthole in the Cotswolds
They may not reside in palaces, but the Greek royal family are certainly not short of a lavish property
Crown Prince Pavlos, 51, and his wife Marie Chantal, 48, spend time at a number of enviable properties around the world including a Costwolds pile and a chic apartment in New York where they relocated last year.
The couple split their time between the UK and New York and have five children including fashion model and socialite Princess Olympia, 22, but have no official remit as royals after the Greek monarchy was deposed and scrapped in 1973.
Last year they moved to Manhattan to be close to their eldest Olympia who is studying and second eldest Tino who is at Georgetown University.

After relocation to London from New York in 2004 for their children’s education, the couple set up home in a mansion in Chelsea’s exclusive Chenyne Walk where Roman Abramovich owns a £100m house.
The average cost of a property on the exclusive street is £2,450,000
