While numerous high-ranking royals from Europe gathered in Athens on Monday (January 16) for the funeral service for the last king of Greece, Constantine II (82). , a very special guest was missing: Prince William (40). He is the godchild of the deceased monarch! Now he's turned up to cook not far from where he lives in the UK.

'Chicken Teriyaki' is on the agenda. A group of young people gather in a kitchen in the British Slough to prepare the originally Japanese dish together when suddenly a prince approaches the stove. Well, admittedly, his appearance will not have been a big surprise. The fact that the heir to the throne of the United Kingdom put on an apron himself (of course in royal blue) caused a smile or two among the young adults.

William attended a project called 'Aik Saath,' which roughly translates to 'Together as One' in German. The term originally comes from the Indian languages ​​Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. The project. which bears the name was founded in the 1990s in response to brutal gang violence between young people of Asian descent in the town near Windsor and is supported by the state health system. The aim of the whole thing is to offer young people employment and warm meals outside of school.

Additional videos show Prince William meeting a number of staff and volunteers dedicated to the project. The performance surprised, as some Royal fans were disappointed that the godchild of the last Greek king had not traveled to Athens for the funeral service.

At the funeral were about King Willem Alexander (55) and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands (51) arrived. Also Prince Albert of Monaco (64) came to bid farewell to Constantine II. Queen Margrethe of Denmark (82) provided spiritual support to her sister, Constantine's widow, Queen Anne-Marie of Greece (76). The Spanish royal family was also there: König Felipe (54) as well Queen Letizia (fifty). The latter also seems to have forgotten the previous disagreements with Princess Marie-Chantal (54) at this event . The former Spanish Queen Sofía (84) was the sister of the deceased. She had previously rushed to her brother's bedside after he suffered a stroke on January 6 from which he never recovered.

Godson William stayed away from the funeral ceremonies, as did his father, who was British King Charles III (74). Constantine II and his wife lived in London for years after being forced into exile in Greece in 1974 after the abolition of the monarchy. They were only allowed to return to their homeland in 2013.

The royal house of Great Britain was founded by Charles' sister Princess Anne (72) and her husband Sir Timothy Laurence (67). (vne)
