Now that the thing is official, I can add that all Heads/representatives of the main royal families will attend.
The church is very small, I have been told there is room for max 29 people inside...

It must be very small indeed. They will have to stand outside. Let us hope it doesn´t rain.
It is good to hear that royal is marrying royal, such an unusual happening these days it seems.

Olga and Aimone are on the right corner of the cover of Point de Vue!
Point de Vue *.:.* En Couverture
French Magazines seems to be interested in this wedding much more than the Italian ones.

Thanks giov!

There isn't much of substance in the blurb; however, it does confirm what Count posted earlier - that there will only be about thirty guests. Also, the wedding will be covered by Point de Vue.

I hope in next week's issue, they get to be on the cover...the whole cover and not a corner.

This is correct MAfan, they had the civil marriage in Moscow.
The choice of a ceremony with a few guests comes from Olga, she does not want to have hundreds of people attending her wedding.
Amedeo at the beginning did not agree with this decision, than he changed his mind because to have less guests means for both family less expenses...

To morrow we will see the pictures of their religious wedding.
I am glad to seen again Princess Claude of France .. their divorce after only 7 years wedding was a sad story ...She looked so happy the day of her wedding
I wonder if Olga will wear the Aoste tiara of these belonging to prince Michael of Grece..

I believe the weather was just cloudy in Dodecanese.I have to tell you that the Greek media don't have a clue about the wedding...I would be surprised if anyone knew Olga or Alexandra.They are talking about Madonna's concert all weekend.I hope we'll learn more from this forum and see some photos perhaps.Help,please!!

Italian media doesn't talk about the wedding, only some newspaper...
I hope They give us a new Prince as soon a possible...a new Duke of Apulia

The local newspaper "Patmos Times" has an article today (www.patmostimes.gr).
Constantine and Anna Maria are going to stay in Cathrine Aga Khan's house on the island.The picture of Queen Sofia arriving at Patmos is from a previous visit(Olga's father,Michael,in the background).The rest is what we already know:they present the basic fact only.I found 2 mistakes,though:Olga's full name is Olga Isabelle(they wrote Elizabeth) and as we know,Aimone and Olga are 2nd cousins (thus,close relatives),but they wrote that they are distant relatives.Conclusion:we know more than they do...LOL
