    Background: Greek Royal Family drove this morning through Athens streets from the Royal Palaces to Athens Cathedral amidst the cheers of the crowds to attend the New Year's Doxology which has been conducted by Athens and All Greece's Archbishop Theoklytus. It is particularly stressed that this year's Doxology has a special significance to the Greek People, for Peace and Understanding reigns ever troubled Cyprus and relations between Allied and Friendly Nations are now completely restored.
