The wives of the Crown Prince of Greece and of Alexandre Egon,
Marie-Chantal, the middle daughter, is the wife of Crown Prince (in exile) Pavel of Greece. Their wedding, celebrated on 1 July 1995 in London (where the Greek royal family has lived in exile in London since 1974 when their country adopted a constitutional government), with 1,400 guests and rumored to have cost $5.5 million, was described as the biggest gathering of royalty since 1948, when Queen Elizabeth married Prince Philip, and was attended by Queen Elizabeth herself. The elegant couple, now living in New York City, has been extensively photographed in magazines.

Sources: The Howland to Miller descents were investigated by Julie Helen Otto and William Addams Reitwiesner in Some ancestry of the Miller sisters, an admirable piece of work, and are also presented in Gary Boyd Roberts, Notable Kin: an anthology of columns first published in the NEHGS NEXUS, 2 vols. (Santa Clarita, California: Carl Boyer, 1998, 1999), 1:22, 25-6. We have made little independent investigation of it, but have mainly added a few details on the latest generations, taken mainly from various magazine articles and webpages. Our sources include:
We are grateful to Richard Carruthers, of Vancouver, British Columbia, for pointing out a missing generation in an earlier version of these notes.
