They could pick one up at auction for around $40,000 Not a bad price

I've been looking on the family of Tatiana, I have found that Boris was born in 1978, Tatiana in 1980 (This is true, it was in delete facebook) and her sister is less than Tatiana, in conclusion, the father´s Tatiana died in 1986.Thanks GRspecialforces by specify, .. Igor, I think that is about 40 years for photos and information I've found him, I think that he would be Tatiana's brother from a previous marriage of his father ...

Tatiana's parents were never married - she's illegitimate. That's probably the reason she refused to discuss her family during the interviews (I read the direct quote was that she "did not want to discuss my personal life."). Tatiana's father was only married once and was not divorced from his wife when she and her brother were born.

I don't see any reason to be ashamed of it or hide it but I guess that she feels differently.

I can not say this, they have the surname of their father and they are baptized by the Catholic Church ... I have read that he was married in 1969 with a woman from a wealthy family .. If the father was Catholic and married Catholic, if he subsequently divorced,, he could not marry with the Tatiana´s mother by the catholic(Except if he had obtained Vatican annulment of his first marry), They (the parents) could being married civilly....I don´t know it.

yes beltraneja, you're welcome! it was 1986 and tatiana is 30 year old now, so she was born in 1980. another woman here believes tatiana is older and sent me an ironic message to tell me i'm an "authority" on nicolas and tatiana. but the truth came out now. and if you think about it, this girl looks so young and if she wasn't 30, she would be less, of course. lol

with respect,
gregory

I have no doubts of her age, because she put it on her facebook and becuase she told to the journalist her age at the press conference.the mother was born in 1954...
A picture of mother in a party in New York:

Tatiana is like her mother.

I know that she was able to say "it's my secret" in Greek when asked about her dress during the press conference, so hopefully, she is studying the Greek language.

Not that it matters but in her ancestral family tree shows her and Boris as the only children and only list her mother and her ancestors. Nothing on the father's side.
The reality is that Nikolaos and her live the perfect romance for 6 years now and they look so suited for each other and very much in love.
The fact that King Constantine approved of the union is a very happy outcome of this love story. Wish them many years of happiness.

Yes I saw it and I was moved when the King took her hand and kissed it.
They all looked so happy. The King told Nikolaos "FINALLY" when the young couple announced their engagement.
However I did not see Pavlos anywhere or heard anything more than that he will be "koumbaros" "Best man" for the couple on their wedding day along with a few others who will hold the crowns above the couple's heads.

sure, you're right. pavlos was not present. i mean the joke the ex-king made after the main interview. well, briefly here: when nicolas announced it to his father, constantine asked him if anyone else knew it. nicolas said he also told pavlos. then the ex-king said to him: "now call pavlos and tell him not to tell anyone, because the girl might say no and then we will all be humiliated!" (na min ginoume rezili!) i liked it because it came a bit unexpected to me. i didn't know the ex-king is humorous, you know, i would expect him more serious etc.

greetings,
gregory

I missed that one by a mile. I saw the King in interviews over the years and he is a very down to earth gentleman. Once he was relaying an incident of him and Prince Philip on a ship during a Regatta and the story was told with all its peppered comments from both the Prince and the King.
I am expecting to see where is the wedding going to take place. At the Mitropolis or some small Church elsewhere.

I found out a Greek site claiming that friends of Nikolaos proposed as a place the small island of Dskaleio next to Poros island, since Nikolaos is a friend with a Greek bussinessman who has a hotel there so they could easily held a banquet there after the wedding. I don't know if it is accurate.

i don't know if it's true but i also suspected they will chose peloponese. i don't know why it's only a feeling i have. and if you think about it, nicolas and his parents like to come here every summer right? not here in patra but certainly in porto heli or ermioni. poros or ermioni sound very nice for a wedding in summer.
