Today, 23 October, Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark and Princess Nina (née Flohr) celebrated their religious wedding at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens. One hundred guests were invited to be present in the Cathedral. Archbishop Ieronymos II of Athens and All Greece officiated over the ceremony, which began at 5:00pm. The crowd gathered outside of the cathedral cheered for Queen Sofía and Princess Irene, King Constantine and Prince Constantine, Queen Anne-Marie and Prince Philippos, and Princess Nina and Thomas Flohr upon their respective arrivals. In a touching scene, the king, who was in a wheel chaired pushed by his grandson, was helped to stand in order to greet the Archbishop. Prince Philippos arrived on the arm of his mother Queen Anne-Marie, who wore her pearl and diamond cross necklace. Princess Nina, wearing a Chanel wedding gown and the Greek Corsage Tiara, arrived on the arm of her father Thomas Flohr. The princess carried a bouquet of peonies.
