Numerous dignitaries from nations throughout the world were on hand for the Bicentennial Parade in Athens.
Guests of honor included dignitaries from Russia, France and Britain, the three great powers at the time of Greece’s revolt that had provided significant assistance to the Greek cause.
The United Kingdom’s Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, and French Defense Minister Florence Parly participated in the events in Athens, which also included a formal state dinner the evening before.
American, French and British Fighter jets flew in formation above central Athens, while military, police, members of the fire brigade and school children marched in the parade that opened, as is customary, with the Evzones, or Greek presidential guard.
The photographs from the parade were shared from the Facebook page of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
