These days, even princes have to date wealthy women.Recently, a series of street photos of Constantine Alexios, the Greek prince caused a stir.
He was seen with his collar half-open, looking handsome and charming, rushing to greet a blonde wealthy woman–
Poppy Delevingne, who is 13 years older than him.
She wore a black low-cut lace dress with a slit up to her thigh, and 15cm high heels that made the prince look like a male pet.
Some netizens mocked: “How can this old woman match him?”
But after looking up Poppy’s information, we can only say: Sorry, the prince is punching above his weight.
At the top of the list of “the world’s most desirable royal bachelors” is 24-year-old Alexios.
In Cantonese, we would say he’s a catch!
His grandfather was the last king of Greece, and his godfather is Prince William of England.
Yes, you read that right. When Alexios was born, William was only 16 years old, with thick hair and a broken left arm, but he still held this big baby.
Alexios inherited his father’s extremely good looks.
With slicked-back blonde hair, he’s a handsome devil, and with glasses, he’s a brooding heartthrob.
Even Dior had to call on His Royal Highness for their advertisements.
However, the days of kings and nobles are long gone.
As early as 1974, Greece abolished the monarchy.
Konstantin’s grandfather had his property confiscated, so he fled to England with his daughter and granddaughter and settled in a suburban mansion.
In terms of social etiquette, he still addressed the Greek monarch as “Your Majesty,” but in reality, he could only stay in Greece for a few hours to visit his mother’s grave.
In January of this year, the last king of Greece passed away from a stroke and was cremated as a commoner.
Less than 20 days after the funeral, his eldest son and heir was photographed kissing a wealthy woman named Poppy in a bookstore.
The romance between the fallen prince and the wealthy heiress came to light.In front of Poppy, the prince’s talk of his birth and accomplishments were reduced to nothing.In terms of royal connections, she has too many to count.
Her grandfather is a close friend of the current King of England, her grandmother is the daughter of the first Viscount Greenwood, her grandmother was a lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret, and her grandfather was a newspaper magnate who once published “Queen” magazine, which later merged into “Tatler.”
This perfect aristocratic lineage is amazing.She is not afraid of the royal family’s scandals and can rely on her family’s wealth and connections.Her mother is the director of a buying agency, and her father is a real estate tycoon.
Compared to the Wangzi Palace, where he was taken in as a guest, Bobby’s house is even bigger than the landlord’s in Liede Village.
In terms of appearance and hardware, it goes without saying.
Bobby’s younger sister, whom everyone should be familiar with, is Ka Chou, the second-highest-earning supermodel in the world.
But even before Ka Chou made her debut, Bobby effortlessly landed a LV advertisement and became the number one favorite pet of Karl Lagerfeld.
Even her wedding dress for her first marriage was a specially customized CHANEL wedding dress.
If Ka Chou can be compared to a mischievous little witch, then Bobby is the true queen of winter.
Ka Chou has long legs, but Bobby’s legs are even longer, with a towering height of 178cm, golden hair like a waterfall, and a disdainful gaze with blue eyes.
She loves to wear dark lipstick, and when she appears, she looks like a villain from a movie, making the protagonist vomit blood.
Some netizens commented that “when Bobby and the Prince go out together, it’s like Black Widow leading a young man.”
Rather than saying that the Prince is a “gold digger,” it is more accurate to say that “eating soft food is a tradition in his family.”
In July 1995, the Prince’s father, Crown Prince Pavlos, got married.
At that time, he was in exile in a foreign country and working for an investment company in New York. It’s hard to believe he was a “crown prince” without a crown.
“But his wife is rich!”
The bride, Marie-Chantal Miller, is the daughter of the king of American duty-free shops, and DFS is their family business.
It is said that the bride’s father, who is worth billions, gave a dowry of $100 million, and even the Vera Wang wedding dress that Marie wore was paid for by herself.
After marriage, Wang Chu relied on his wealth and power to invest heavily, and his wife’s children’s clothing brand made a lot of money, sending all five children, one daughter and four sons, to prestigious schools.
This kind of marriage between declining old money and new money from business magnates became their lifeline to prevent a class cliff drop.
And Poppy, not only a replica of the prince’s mother, but even more dominant.
Her family of three sisters was born without lacking money and power.
The eldest sister has a double degree in biomedical and oncology, specializing in academia; the youngest sister dominates the fashion and film industry, with resources and exposure at her fingertips.
However, Poppy, in the middle, is the backbone of the family.
Poppy’s mother suffers from severe bipolar disorder and drug addiction, often collapsing and accidentally committing suicide.
This illness is also hereditary.
Since childhood, mental illness and drug addiction have been the Achilles’ heel of the three sisters. Unfortunately, the sword has fallen.
Recently, Carina Lau was caught losing control, going crazy, and feeling depressed, which completely destroyed her image.
In times of turmoil in the wealthy family, someone has to step up and take charge, just like how Stanley Ho’s family has Pansy Ho, and in this case, it’s Poppy.
“As a Taurus woman, my family and wealth are everything to me.”
She accompanied Carina through the most difficult times, while she herself has been in long-term contact with a psychiatrist since the age of 20.
Since genetics cannot be changed, she relied on external forces to break the curse.
As the saying goes, the first generation creates, the second generation maintains, and the third generation fails. As a member of the third generation of a wealthy family, Poppy knows that relying solely on inherited wealth is a dead end.
Since childhood, she has had a desire for money written all over her face, and encouraged her sisters to start a business together.
A few years ago, the three sisters founded the wine brand Della Vite.
Utilizing her younger sister’s fame and her own professional background, the brand became a huge success upon its launch.
In the first year alone, they earned one billion US dollars.
But what role did Poppy play? Her network.
Since entering the fashion industry at the age of 15, Poppy has built a circle of friends that gathers people from the fashion, business, and political worlds with her charm and wit.
She hobnobs with celebrities and laughs with art masters.
However, with great power comes great responsibility, and with great fame comes great loss of privacy.
In the world of fame and fortune, Poppy never shows off, but she does make sure to be seen in different occasions.
She once said in a magazine, “What people see is only vanity, what I hold in my hand is possession.”
In 2014, she married her businessman boyfriend of nine years, Cook.
The groom is a member of an aviation family, standing at 190cm tall and nicknamed “The Little Lord”.
The wedding was held three times in a row, and all the noble celebrities who could be invited were invited.
On that day, Cardi B held up her sister’s train and stood at the door with her daughter Kulture. Netizens commented:
“For the first time, I saw the domineering of a generation of demon queens ascending the throne from a bride.”
Sure enough, at the end of 2022, news of their divorce spread.
The reason for the divorce is even more bizarre: because “Cardi B’s work is too busy and she is always on business trips.”
Perhaps for the wealthy, marriage is not only about love, but also about sharing resources. If it works, they stay together, if not, they separate. “Making money is the top priority.”
Look, the couple haven’t even finished their divorce yet, and they’re already playing around with other people.
The husband was caught on camera cozying up to a young model, while the little prince was snatched up by Barbie.
After the king’s funeral in January, the media wrote a special article called “The Fall of the Greek Gods,” which mentioned that the so-called royal family had long since fallen out of favor. They had nowhere to go when they returned home, and there were even boos outside the funeral.
The young princesses and princes don’t have any real businesses. Some rely on fashion street photography to create their image, while others make money through brand advertising.
To be honest, do brands really only care about their appearance? It’s just the gimmick of that self-deceiving title.
Therefore, it’s not embarrassing for princes to date rich women, as it is a clear path to maintaining their current lifestyle.
As one netizen put it bluntly:
In the end, the only thing that princes can offer Barbie is their young bodies.
