The youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie, Prince Philippos of Greece got married to his fiance Nina Nastassja Flohr in a civil marriage ceremony in the ski resort of St Moritz in Switzerland. The ceremony took place secretly on Saturday, with just their fathers King Constantine and Thomas Flohr present due to Covid-19 restrictions. Only three photos from the ceremony were released.

Greece abolished their monarchy in 1973 but royals still retain their titles. Prince Philippos works as a hedge fund analyst in New York City. Nina Nastassja Flohr is the daughter of Swiss businessman Thomas Flohr, who founded private jet charter company VistaJet. She works at that company as a creative director.

King Constantine and his son Crown Prince Pavlos do not perform any official duty now, but are still active participants in royal life around Europe. Queen Anne-Marie's sister is Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. King Constantine is the older brother of Queen Sofia of Spain, who is Philippos' aunt, while King Felipe of Spain is his cousin. The bride wore a white tweed skirt suit from Chanel's Autumn/Winter 20 collection at the ceremony.

  2. De bien belles photos de ce nouveau couple de mariés qui nous montrent tout son amour ; très joli le tailleur-jupe de la mariée mais son gros nœud dans les cheveux me semble superflu - Ravissants escarpins qui sont beaucoup mieux que les bottes portées par le mannequin !

  4. I wonder how many generations will retain the titles since Greece no longer has a monarchy.

    1. I have wondered, that when King Constanine dies, will Pavlos be a king or an ex-king...

    2. I guess the only title the former Greek royal family has is the Danish, which is inherited by descendants of the Danish prince, who became king of Greece. 🤔
      Nina's title will be: Princess Philippos of Denmark …… nor Marie-Chantal has any title of her own.

    3. We have this discussion every now and then and I stick to my view: No monarchy, no titles. Their "crown-prince" or whatever is just "Gedöns" as we say in german.

    4. The Vienna Conference in 1815 when arranging the borders (and politics) of European countries after the Napoleonic wars decided that any king who had lost his country would retain his royal title. There was no time limit. It is applied also to Greek royals even though Greece was not an independent country in 1815, but only from 1821 onwards. In the 1860's Greece chose a Danish prince as their king. He asked and was granted the use of the title "prince of Denmark" for him and his descendants. Before him Greece had had a Bavarian prince as their king, but thrown him out. So this Danish prince was oviously thinking "what if..."
      In the 19th century it was important to have the royal title as in most monarchies the succession order required "equal marriage" to be allowed to inherit the crown.
      As far as I understand Pavlos will remain "crown prince" as that was the title he received at birth 1967. He cannot be ex-king as he has never been king. His eldest son will be prince, not crown prince.
      Everybody is entitled an opinion, but there are certain polite customs observed in existing monarchies - and to a certain degree even in republics, how funny we ordinary people may think they are.

    5. Thanks for really useful explanation, Margot. Is that why the daughter of ex king Michael of Roumania uses the title "Custodian of the Crown"?

  5. Will she take on the title of princess?

  6. I do not like the bow. Perhaps low on the neck she might have got away with it but the way it is placed now looks like a little girls bow and a very old fashioned little girl at that.

    1. Anything else to add? Or is it ok for her to wear what she wants to her own wedding?

    2. annonymous 8:39 pm - This is a fashion blog, not a personal attack blog. I saw bad fashion choices, per my opinion, what did you see? Give us your honest opinion about her outfit, don't hold anything back, fashion wise. lol

  8. While she wears the suit better than the model, and I think it a very nice choice for a civil wedding, I do not like the bow at all. It reminds me of the bows Sarah Ferguson wore in her hair in her Sloan Ranger days. She has taken a sophisticated suit and accessorized it with a flower girl's head piece. Then I have to question the white pantyhose. White? Those remind me of old fashioned nurses stockings. They were in fashion in the early 90s, but no more. She should have followed Coco's rule and looked in the mirror and removed one thing before leaving the house. The 4th picture down is precious. I hope that they will be very happy.

  9. The suit is gorgeous and a great fit. I like this outfit on her. Yes the bow is a bit girly, but the suit itself has a classic silhouette. (V.M.)

  10. A beautiful bride and a handsome groom. Correct and sombre outfit for the occasion. The big bow? a little girlish but in keeping with the ensemble.
    Will be nice to see the wedding dress if/when the situation allows.
    Will it be a Greek Orthodix church ceremony?
    Wait and see.

    1. deadeggs, most definitely. Can't wait for the full ceremony. And now it is also big sister Theodora, that must also get married!

    2. Coralie, so I take it, "gedons" means finish, thing of the past. In Afrikaans [native language], of people in South Africa, it will mean "gedaan," very close to your German, interesting!

  11. Lovely! . Will Crown Princess Marie-Chantal be Queen Consort one day?

    1. Yes I think Marie-Chantal will be Queen of Greece one day.

    2. Not unless the monarchy is restored, which is not likely. Marie-Chantal will not be Queen of Greece. The royal family keep the titles they had when the monarchy was abolished, but they don't get new ones.

  12. Good on them for going ahead and getting their wedding done. Hope they can have a major event later. Slightly odd to have their fathers but not their mothers. Is the limit 2 in Switzerland? If there was only one parent allowed and my son chose my husband I would not be happy! Sad to see how frail King Constantine looks. Think the bride's outfit is perfectly appropriate for the event, though I'm not a great fan of the bow. Generally don't like white stockings but think they give more of a wedding vibe to the outfit. Wishing them health and happiness in the years ahead.

  13. Very happy for them. Here is to many happy years ahead!

  14. Margot, Greece was not a party to the congress of 1815, and the first king of modern Greece came in 1832. But there was no Greek king in 1815, and Greece was not a signatory to the Vienna Treaty. It has no legal bearing on anything in modern Europe, but of course one can think otherwise.

    As for her bow; I rather like it. But I do not like sandals for official events of any kind, and tights and sandals are a no-no in my thinking. - Ellie

    1. Just for the record. The shoes are very classic high heeled and sling backed not sandals. Perfectly appropriate with the suit but I am still sitting on the fence about the white or very light stockings (I suspect that the lighting is making them more obvious than they really were). I think that its ok trying to appear more like a bride under the present Corona restrictions and I am getting closer to liking them. I still think that had she worn her hair up with that bow (almost a hat) or tied all her hair together at the nape of the neck with it it would have looked ver y nice but like it is now not good.

    2. nalerina is correct. Closed toe shoes are not sandals.
