The video is lovely. I like the way KC and QAM never interfered in the decision...I would find it hard if I were in this position.

What a good looking couple and family. I´m overjoyed to see Nikolas finally marrying his beautiful lady and to see them with the parents. For me their happiness is far more valuable than the ring or where it came from.

If you look earlier in the thread, I mentioned that I'm pretty sure that the ring's stone came from a very beautiful set of earrings. The only time I had seem them clearly was at a Christening of one of the children and A-M was wearing a light blue suit smiling at the baby (who was being held by the King). It looks like the stone and it's setting did not change much for the ring.

It sounds as if we've gotten as much about Tatiana's background as the royal family wants to be out in the press. They are not going to want to brag that Tatiana may be illegitimate or sort through the issues around her father's death. Therefore, they kept the conference quieter/less formal and unlike the other two conferences (Pavlos, Alexia), there is no larger family photo (with the danish, spanish aunts. My guess is that they are saying the least said, the better.

No, princess Irini came by coincidence just the time most of the photographers and the cameras were already out of the Yach Club.
Queen Anna Maria only said a few world but off camera, she was emotionally touched as well as the King, who left his tiers at the moment he kissed Tatiana's hand:-)

"Tatiana Elinga Blatnik was born in Venezuela and grow up in Switzerland. Her father, Ladislav Blatnik was Slovenian and her mother, Mari-Blance Bierlein is German, married to Mr Attilio Brigienburg.
Tatiana has 4 brothers: Boris, Igor and Anouska Blatnik and a step brother, Attilio Brigienburg. She graduated from Georgetown University with a diploma at Sociology. She works for the P.R. of the Diane Von Furstenberg House of Fashion"

This is very common for the Royal Houses, to broke a jewelery in order to make another one.

Thank you very much for providing this information, roimat.

So no Peter or 'Petar' (according to ever-unreliable wikipedia...) Blatnik appears to be Tatiana's father, but Ladislav Blatnik.
Originally from Slovenia, he made a fortune of undisclosed nature in Venezuela, had the nickname 'Lottie', and claimed to be a 'Venezualean shoe magnate' when he first stepped into the public eye as the lover of late Hollywood actress Natalie Wood in the mid-1960s.

Apart from the Natalie Wood references there is very little of substance to be found on the internet concerning Tatiana's father.
Here's one bit:
http://www.wwd.com/fashion-news/fash...60//?full=true

"...What’s more, Diane von Furstenberg knew Tatiana’s father, Ladislav Blatnik, who was originally from Slovenia, in the Sixties. “My family and Diane’s family’s paths have always crossed,” noted Blatnik, who added that she plans to keep working for the designer after her wedding."

They want a winter wedding??At the greek press conference they said they want a wedding at the end of the summer in the country-side.
Do you have a link to the press conference given to non-greek channels and magazines?

Has she/is she going to convert to the orthodox church? I don't see how else this marriage can take place in a Greek church, -which forbids marriage between non-Christian and Christian..

What Natalie Wood references? Please explain.

I highly doubt they would have a winter wedding since Princess Madaliene of Sweden is getting married in the winter of 2010/2011. I would guess there is alot of checking the royal calenders to make sure the most number of royal guests can attend. If I remember correctly, Pavlos and Marie Chantal chose their wedding date so Queen Elizabeth II could attend.

Possibly the best account of Natalie Wood’s relationship with Ladislav Blatnik, nickname ‘Lottie’ and ‘The Shoe King of Venezuela’, can be found in Gavin Lambert’s biography of the actress: ‘Natalie Wood: A Life’, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 2004.

Here’s a picture of Wood and Tatiana Blatnik’s father at a costume ball, ca. 1965:

I agree, lots of weddings this semester, i believe its possible to have it early 2011??

Do you think Q Elizabeth II will attend a wedding abroad and especially at the country-side?

Well, P & MC also married in London as did Alexia and Carlos since traveling to Greece was not an option at that time. The Queen's husband Prince Phillip was born a Prince of Greece and Denmark so I don't know if they would travel to Greece for a wedding. Probably just send a representative.

Don't think they would attend. At Constantine and Anne-Marie's Wedding the Queen also was not present. Only Philip, Charles and Anne. Even if the Wedding takes place in London on 24.08. It think she will not attend because at the time she is usually on holiday at Balmoral.

As a matter of fact, yes! She is going to convert, she will be baptized a Greek Orthodox by the Archbishop of Great Britain and Thyateira, Nicholaos announced it to the Greek Press on Monday. I think she will be a beautiful bride, and I 'm glad that she is appreciated by her in-laws for what she is and not for what her late father was or wasn't. Their attitude honours them as far as I'm concerned.

I agree with you Mariazil. Their majesties always seem to behave with dignity and a true noble attitude - I mean, they have their values and high standards, but they also seem quite open minded and very deeply gentle to people.
