Prince Philippos and Nina Flohr’s October 23 wedding marked the third celebration of their nuptials, with each subsequent event being more elaborate than the last. The first “wedding” was a small civil ceremony in December of 2020 in St Moritz, Switzerland. People reported, “Due to Switzerland’s strict COVID-19 restrictions, only the couple’s fathers King Constantine, 80, and Thomas Flohr, 60, were present at the civil ceremony.” In June, the couple celebrated the marriage with a few more close friends and family, holding an intimate gathering at the Cambridgeshire Stibbington House, home of Alice and Tom Naylor-Leyland, per Town & Country.
The third wedding ceremony was by far the most extravagant. This time around, Philippos and Flohr held a religious celebration at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Athens, per Daily Mail. Going for the full wedding experience this time, Flohr wore an elegant Chanel wedding gown paired with the Antique Corsage tiara. The diamond and pearl tiara in particular has a royal history, being the first tiara that Queen Anne-Marie ever owned, per Court Jeweller.
Unlike the first ceremony, the couple’s third celebration was a true regal wedding. The couple pulled out all the stops and invited their fair share of royal guests. Queen Sofia of Spain and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were among those to celebrate the long-awaited day. After having the pandemic derail their initial plans, the happy couple were surely pleased to have a true royal wedding in the end.
