  2. Darius Mirzayantz
In 2012, she was named to Vanity Fair's Top 100 Best Dressed List {Source}. Despite being a Greek Princess by title, she is not in line for the Greek throne because her parents marriage was unequal. She also does not bear Her Royal Highness or is considered a Princess of Denmark. One of her father's first cousins is Prince Philip,The Duke of Edinburgh-Prince Philip's father was Prince Michael's uncle. This would make Alexandra Prince Charles's (as well as Anne, Andrew and Edward's) second cousin via King George I of Greece. In relation to the present Greek Royal Family, Alexandra is Constantine's 2nd cousin through George I as well. Constantine is George I's great grandson through Constantine I and Alexandra is his great granddaughter through Prince Christopher. Also through this way, through Queen Sofia of Spain, she is related to the Spanish Royal Family.
