This beautiful two part mini series is about the marriage of Princess Sofîa of Greece to her cousin Juan Carlos of Spain. Yon González plays Prince Constantine of Greece, Sofîa's brother who would later become King Constantine II of Greece. Though he has a small role, he is completely believable as a young prince in that era. This mini series was directed by Antonio Hernández who later directed Yon in the movie Matar El Tiempo.
The series starts in Corfu (Greece), in the summer of 1961 at the Royal Palace of Mon Repos- the summer residence of the Greek Royal Family. The servants prepare the Palace for the Royal family of Spain who are in exile. The purpose of the visit is to formalize the relationship between Sofia, the eldest daughter of the King Paul and Federica of Greece, with Juan Carlos, the son of Juan of Borbon and Maria de las Mercedes. The two had met previously in London during the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and fell in love. Their love story is marred by several obstacles one of which is the religious differences between the two. Sofia is Orthodox Christian and Juan Carlos is Catholic. The second major obstacle is Spain itself. Their visit to Greece raised concerns in the mind of the then-dictator Franco who had educated Juan Carlos in the philosophy of the Spanish regime and who viewed her religion as "foreign and heretical".
