What a pleasant surprise! A secret royal wedding took place last week, but don’t worry, there will be a follow-up ceremony in 2021. Allow me to explain: On December 12, Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark married Nina Flohr, an aviation heiress, in the elite Swiss ski resort of St. Moritz. Even though the prince and his long-term girlfriend have been engaged since September, this wedding did not receive the same royal attention as for example, Princess Beatrice’s wedding in July.
The New York City-based financial analyst, who is the youngest son of King Constantine III of Greece, married VistaJet airline heiress Nina Flohr on December 12 in the exclusive Swiss ski town of St. Moritz.
Nina posted a photo of herself cuddling close to Philippos in a stylish white Chanel suit on Instagram Tuesday, “Just married (civilly) 🤍,”.
Only the couple’s fathers, King Constantine, 80, (Prince William’s godfather), and Thomas Flohr, 60, were present at the civil wedding, which will reportedly be followed by a religious service in 2021, as per Switzerland’s rigorous Covid-19 restrictions.
Alice Naylor-Leyland, a Vogue writer, and her husband, Tom, tagged the pair in a series of happy images taken at their magnificent Cambridge house on Instagram.
It showed the prince, who is the godson of Princess Diana and the son of King Constantine III and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, wearing a champagne-colored cloak with a tux and his woman Nina as they ate supper with their friends, a ballon and an enormous vase of flowers, and a blue and white tiered cake.
The pair announced their engagement in September, but their wedding date and location were kept a secret. In December 2020, the bride posted a photo from their wedding day on Instagram, showing the newlyweds hugging after their civil ceremony in the posh Swiss ski town of St Moritz. “Just married (civilly),” it was captioned by her.
Rather than a traditional gown, Nina opted for a white two-piece tweed skirt suit with a matching white hair bow and satin Valentino slingback heels with the label’s characteristic studs. The prince wore a black suit with a white shirt and a light blue satin tie.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and social distance requirements, only Nina’s father, Thomas Flohr, and Prince Philippo’s father, King Constantine of Greece, were there.
Following their wedding, King Constantine’s Private Office issued the following statement: “On Saturday, December 12, 2020, at 11 a.m., Prince Philippo married Nina-Nastassja Flohr in a private civil ceremony in St. Moritz. The ceremony was witnessed by King Constantine and Mr. Thomas Flohr, who followed all of the Swiss state’s health requirements. Following the wedding, the newlyweds were congratulated by their close family. More information regarding the impending religious wedding will be released as soon as possible.”
Prince Philippos, a hedge fund analyst in New York, was born in 1986 at St Mary’s Hospital in London. Princess Alexia, 55, Crown Prince Pavlos, 54, Prince Nikolaos, 51, and Princess Theodora, 37, are his four older siblings.
Nina is the daughter of Thomas Flohr, a Swiss businessman who created the private aircraft charter company VistaJet. She worked for the company as a creative director until launching the Bazaruto Center for Scientific Studies (BCSS), a non-profit marine research center, in 2017.
Princess Eugenie is rumored to be a friend of hers, and she was present during her royal wedding in October 2018.
