This appears to be been a lovely relaxed family wedding. Congratulations to Nikolaos and Tatiana! Lovely bride and groom. A little too much lace but I thought the veil and bolero were nice.

This wedding was announced a quite long time before, so at least one of the Queen's children was expected. Of course the Duke of Kent is vrey close, but he is not the only one. Do not forget that KK lives in London for about 40 years, so I believe that during all these years they elaborated very close bonds with the whole British Royal family
Anyway they know the reason!
Prince Phillip is older than HM and I doubt he would travel without her.
There is no protocol to say that Phillip cannot travel alone. Yes King Constantine has lived in London for 40 years, and the majority of royals have attended all the parties and marriages held in London by the royals, but like I have said in the previous thread HM wouldn't travel for the wedding even if they were distant relations.

I had expected Edward and Sophie at least, so I myself was surprised that the kents attended. I assume you mean Prince Michael of Kent, not Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.

In my mind, the right British royals did attend. Yes, the Greeks have lived in London for over 40 years but the Queen and The Duke are up their in age, they don't travel a lot and quite frankly (cause i have not been there) Greece appears to be VERY beautiful (a place of interest in terms of visiting) but also VERY hot.

That being said.....the Kents do have a personal relationship. It looks like the bridal couple (as well as their family) invited people that they know very well. We need to stop looking at it as a slap in the face because they are so far down in the Line of Succession and more of a friend inviting another friend to their family wedding. Or perhaps other friends and family were invited but because of other obligations (i.e. Fred and Benedike) they could not attend.

I was a little surprised that there was not more representation from the British given the closeness between the 2 families. Charles had hosted the 60th birthday party for Constantine at Highgrove, and a number of the senior royals attended hos 7-th party, including HM, DoE, Anne, Tim and the Kents.

I am surprised that Edward and Sophie didn't come, I expected those two. I didn't think any other royals would turn up.

Do the official wedding pictures get released to news agencies or do we have to wait for Hola or Hello magazine to view them?

Thank you Paty. Elena's dress is definitely much better without the jacket, but I'm still quite disappointed. I've come to expect some really phenomenal dresses from Elena. She is by far one of my favorite royals because of her elegance and unique style, and I don't think this dress really showcased that.

Also, I love this pic of Alexia's family: http://www.daylife.com/photo/0fTX3TW...e%2C+August+25. They are such an incredibly beautiful family and Alexia looked stunning.

Infanta Elenas dress has almost two decades.It's pretty good looking for time.What I liked was her hair. It was crushed.

What's the hand behind Tatiana doing? Looks like it's holding the traditional crown and the crown has been deleted...
I was wondering about the same thing....Normally the crowns are used during orthodox wedding ceremonies...

I think respectfully its a little harsh to say this couple look to have no true feelings. How would we know? They aren't in the limelight everyday like other royals and I'm sure its a little daunting to have so many cameras and chaos there to deal with. What would we say if they weren't smiling but pouting?I think there trying to balance the whole show and still try to keep it there day. My opinion only!!!
