Like his Swedish counterpart, he is said to have a roving eye, which has not gone down well with Sofia, his Greek-born consort.
Her modus operandi is not unlike that of a roving investigative journalist.
But friends close to the couple say his roving eye kept roving.
"to wander with no fixed destination," 1530s (earliest sense was "to shoot arrows at a mark selected at pleasure or at random," late 15c.); possibly a Midlands dialectal variant of northern English and Scottish rave "to wander, stray," from Middle English raven, probably from Old Norse rafa "to wander, rove" (cf. rave (v.)). Influenced by rover, if not a back-formation from it. Related: Roved; roving.
