Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece (Greek: Παύλος, romanized: Pav́los) is the current Head of the Royal House of Greece as the second son of Constantine II, the last King of the Hellenes from 1964 to 1973, and Anne-Marie of Denmark. He became the head of the Greek royal family following the death of his father on 10 January 2023. He was heir apparent to the throne of Greece and was its crown prince from birth, remaining so during his father's reign until the monarchy's abolition. As a male-line descendant of Christian IX of Denmark and grandson of Frederick IX of Denmark, he is a Danish prince, although not in succession to its throne. Margrethe II of Denmark and Queen Sofía of Spain are his aunts, and Felipe VI of Spain is his first cousin.
