I thought Olga married the Prince in London. He was a student at Oxford when they met. Am I wrong? Thanks Marengo

The Duke of York and Prince Paul met each other while the latter studied at Oxford indeed. They became friends and the duke was best man at the wedding. i believe Princess Olga actually was one of the few foreign royals that became close to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother btw. The couple married in belgrade tough, which would also explain the large amount of royalties from the balkans in the group photo.

I am not sure but in 1923 the duke & duchess of York also were sponsor of the future king Peter II of Yugoslavia, for which they apparently also traveled to the country. I supose that both occassions happened during one visit of the York couple (seems more logical than they travelling twice in one year to Yugoslavia in 1923).

It makes sense Marengo. I just believed they were married in London but then again your explanation makes much more sense.
Thank you.

I can recognize (sitting, first row, from left), Elena (bride's mother), queen-dowager Sophie of Greece (in mourning dress, as customary at the time - her husband had recently passed), bride, groom, Marie de Roumanie, Maria of Yugoslavia, (standing, second row), prince Nicholas of Greece, the Duke of York (George VI), the Duchess of York, Alexander I of Serbia, Ferdinand de Roumanie, the groom's father, and on the third row, Paul of Greece (Paul I). Can anyone recognize the rest?

WHo is the groom's father ? I think Marina and Elisabeth , the bride's sisters should be on the picture. Perhaps the lady in white behind Elena ?

Prince Arsen, the father of the groom, is standing next to king ferdinand of romania. I believe the lady standing on the right is queen Elisabeth of Greece, née Pss. of Romania. The man behind king Alxander is crown prince Carol of Romania.

Now here's an elegant, stunning bride! I had no idea that the Queen Mother had travelled to Belgrade for this wedding. Was she friends with the couple?

Ifrc Prince Paul was a friend of hers through her brother who was at Oxford with him.
