Another American Is About to Marry into a Royal Family
Is there a direct line for Meghan Markle where she doles out advice on all things royal? Because another American may be wanting the Duchess's dos and don'ts of marrying into a royal family very soon.
Princess Theodora of Greece is officially engaged to lawyer Matthew Kumar. The royal made the announcement on Monday, taking to Instagram to share the special news with a series of romantic shots of herself with her new fiancé.
“Words can’t express our happiness and excitement,” she captioned the post. “I can’t wait to marry this wonderful man. I love you Matt.”
Princess Theodora spent much of her adult life in the United States, moving across the pond to pursue an acting career. And she wasn't too shabby either, nabbing a role in the popular soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful under the stage name Theodora Greece. While we aren’t sure exactly how the couple met or when they first started dating, Kumar is based in Los Angeles.
The couple’s family members seemed overjoyed by the news with many commenting their congratulations on the post. The Greek royal family expressed their own excitement for the lovebirds in a formal statement on their website.
“Their Majesties King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie are delighted to announce the engagement of their youngest daughter Theodora to Mr. Matthew Kumar.”
While details about the wedding will be provided in “due course” as mentioned in the statement, we are curious as to whether Queen Elizabeth will be making an appearance on Princess Theodora’s big day given her connection to the British monarch. The 92-year-old ruler took on the role of Princess Theodora’s godmother at her christening in 1983.
Another royal wedding on the horizon? Count us in.
