Back on October 25, 2010, the Monterey City News published an article about the arrest of HRH Princess Theodora of Greece. As you know by now the original charge was driving under the influence, but later (hence yesterday) some how — by the grace of the royal gods — the charge was reduced to speeding.
Per the Monterey City News:
Princesses aren’t known for their public antics, but this one is surely making an infamous name for herself.
Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark, 27, has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol while tearing through Monterey County in September. She was nailed by police in Salinas and found to have a blood-alcohol level of .07 - just under the legal limit - but drivers can still be charged with impairment at the officer’s discretion.
The haughty princess showed up for her arraignment in September with a checkbook, thinking that she was just going to pay a ticket and leave. Once she had the “criminal” bombshell dropped on her, she hired a lawyer. Her attorney pleaded not guilty for her and says she is confused about the legal part of the proceedings.
Her pretrial hearing will take place on December 18.
Interestingly enough, the princess was named by the Academy of Couture Arts as “an exemplary role model for the youth of the world.”
In the end, it was a nice misdemeanor and her name on the case: Last name: Theodora. First name HRH. Middle name: Princess.
