Former Prince Philippos of Greece and billionaire’s daughter Nina Flohr have exchanged wedding vows for the third time this Saturday in Athens.
Phillipos, the youngest son of the last King of Greece, Constantine, is married to Swiss billionaire businessman Thomas Flohr’s daughter Nina Flohr. Their third ceremony was held on Saturday at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens.
It was the third wedding for the couple, who first wed last December in a small civil ceremony in St Moritz, Switzerland, followed by a high society springtime celebration in Cambridgeshire.
Both were intimate affairs – indeed there were just the two fathers as witnesses at the first – but this third wedding has all the makings of a full-blown extravaganza. There was no shortage of flashy names on the guest list, with British princesses Beatrice and Eugenie in attendance.
Phillipos, 35, has four siblings, including former Crown Prince Pavlos, 54, who shares five children with the jet-set socialite Marie-Chantal. Their model daughter Princess Olympia, 25, brought high fashion glamour to her uncle’s wedding, attending the event with her British boyfriend Peregrine Pearson, the heir to the Pearson fortune.
The Pearsons are a wealthy British family who inherited the Cowdray Park estate and its respective polo club. Their fortune is built on the Pearson conglomerate, which was first started as a construction company but transitioned to publishing during the course of the 20th century.
Pearson joined the princess in Athens this summer while she was vacationing with her parents and four siblings. She also spent time with Prince Philippos in Pearson’s home town of London during another stop on the same vacation.
The group visited the Somerset House, which was the venue for the London Design Biennale where Philippos’ brother Prince Nicolaos was exhibiting his photography.
