Prince Nikolaus of Greece marries Tatiana Blatnik amidst royal glitter and public cheer

August 25 - Prince Nikolaus of Greece, second son of King Constantine II of Greece, married his longtime girlfriend Tatiana Blatnik.

The wedding ceremony was held last August 25 at the Ayios Nikolaus Monastery on Spetses Island, three hours away from Athens.

Close friends and family – most of them royalty themselves – witnessed the happy couple as they solemnized their vow.

Among the high profile guests who attended the wedding are Queen Margrethe, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim, and Princess Marie of Denmark; Queen Sofia, Prince Felipe, Princess Letizia, Infanta Elena, Infanta Cristina, and Iñaki Urdangarin of the Spanish Royal Family; and Crown Princess Victoria and his husband Prince Daniel of Sweden.
