They held an opulent ceremony at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Athens, which follows a first civil ceremony last December in Switzerland, and a Cambridgeshire event earlier this year. Guests of the couple were offered sumptuous dining options, including a golden grouper fillet and wild fennel, alongside “handmade ravioli” as guests fined amongst artfully arranged flowers and fruits.

Pomegranates and berries decorated the tables as guests tucked into a “late harvest tomato salad.”

Prince Philippos is the Prince of Greece and Denmark, and is the youngest child of Greece’s last king and queen, Constantine II and Anne-Marie of Denmark.

The king and queen still use their royal titles, although the monarchy was abolished in Greece nearly half a century ago.

King Constantine is also Prince William’s godfather, as well as a second cousin of Prince Charles.

Prince Philippos was born in the same hospital and Princes William and Harry, then spent his childhood in Hampstead Heath, where Princess Diana was reportedly a frequent presence.

He attended Georgetown University in Washington D.C., currently working as a hedge fund analyst in New York.

His wife, Nina, works as a creative director for her father’s private jet charter company, and has founded a non-profit organisation for marine research.

Princess Olympia, King Constantine and Anne-Marie’s granddaughter, shared adorable images of the flower girls as they posed in cream dresses with gold details.

The event was truly a royal affair, attended by representatives of most European monarchies.

Among the illustrious royal invitees were Princess Benedikte of Denmark, Queen Sofia of Spain and Irene of Greece.

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie flew to Greece to take part in the celebrations, with husbands Jack Brooksbank and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in tow.

Princess Beatrice’s husband is thought to have maintained a close friendship with Nina, who attended Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s 2018 wedding ceremony.

Princess Eugenie was dressed in a chic floor-length black Peter Pilotto gown, accessorised with Carvela heels and gold decorative features.

Princess Beatrice, who gave birth to her first child, Sienna Elizabeth, last month, looked radiant in a two-toned Gucci outfit with completing bow.

Also in attendance was Vogue writer Alice Naylor-Leyland, who hosted the second ceremony for the couple in Cambridgeshire this spring.

His new wife, Nina, is an heiress to the airline VistaJet, and the daughter of Swiss billionaire Thomas Flohr.

Nina will now be styled as Nina, Princess of Greece and Denmark.

Whilst the first two ceremonies were anchored in intimacy, this celebration was far more elaborate.

The initial civil ceremony only had two guests; the fathers of the couple, King Constantine, 80, and Thomas Flohr, 60, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
