There Was a Surprise Royal Wedding Last Weekend
It went down in St. Moritz.
Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark and his longtime girlfriend, Nina Flohr, had an intimate civil ceremony on Saturday, People reports, giving royal-watchers another ceremony to add to their list of royal events affected by COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic.
Philippos is Princess Diana's godson and youngest son of King Constantine III of Greece. Flohr is the creative director of her family's aviation company, VistaJet, and founded the Bazaruto environmental marine research facility in Mozambique. The two married in St. Moritz, a Swiss ski town, and Flohr posted a sweet photo on Instagram hinting at a more formal and (hopefully) lavish affair in the future.
"Just married (civilly)," Flohr captioned the snowy photo. People adds that King Constantine and Thomas Flohr were the only guests present at the ceremony due to Switzerland's stringent COVID-19 restrictions.
Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who also had a low-key wedding when he married Princess Beatrice back in July, congratulated the couple, writing, "Congratulations" in the comments and adding a yellow heart emoji.
The Greek royal family announced Flohr and Philippos' engagement in September and Flohr promptly shared the news on Instagram.
"My dearest Philippos. I love you today, I will love you tomorrow and forever," she wrote. "You make us happier, better and stronger. I cannot wait to spend the rest [of] our lives together."
