I don't know where they are living at the moment, presumably in London.
But if they should choose to move to Greece, then that's their choice and it might be good for Tatiana to learn the language.
However but people saying she should learn it just because she's marrying an ex Greek Prince, is silly.

Hhmm..I have a silly question.Where is Tatiana from? Is she American? Because to me the surname Blatnik seems very Slavic..

She was born in Venezuela 29 years ago, to a Slovenian father and a German mother, and is the granddaughter of Ellinka Countess von Einsiedel. She moved to Switzerland when she was three years old and was educated partly there and partly in the USA. She holds a degree in sociology from Georgetown University in Washington and returned to Switzerland to study public relations.

Thank Saint Google not me But you're welcome anyway.

I suppose that the info is correct, as I do remember Beltraneja saying something about some of her grandmother being a countess, and more or less the rest of the sources I've read say the same about her.

yes, these information are correct, melibea. she said that in the interview for life & style magazine after the engagement. slovenian father and german mother. her father died when tatiana was 6 and after saying this, she refused to add something more, because she said the rest are private. so from that moment the truth is that i started suspecting something strange is going on with his story. he left to his children a huge fortune, so maybe he didn't make that money very decently. i say maybe, that's only a thought, maybe he cheated some people and they assassinated him, who knows. but whatever the truth is, this girl is a diamond. very appropriate for nicolas, she's a lady.

Yes, i agree. She is really nice and seems appropiate for Nicholas. She also seems to be smart according to her studies. Hmmm... i always thought that she is from Denmark.
But it was proved i was wrong

Tatiana Blatnik is of Venezuela and has family in Caracas. The surname is Slovenian and the father's family also, I read that the grandfather was a banker or business man related to banker. The grandfather lived in Switzerland. And Tatiana's father lived between Switzerland, Venezuela and Miami.
This last I have it very doubtful but could be, that part of his family were known in Yugoslavia because they were political??, I read it.

According to "Billed Bladet" both Frederik and Benedikte don´t attend the wedding. Freddy has another engagement that was made long before the wedding date was set and Benedikte obviously has to stay in Denmark as a "regent". Concerning Benedikte I find it a little sad since she is one of Niko´s mothers` two sisters. Mary therefore seems to attend by herself.
But I believe as long as there attend a lot of Queens Niko and Tati won´t really care....
Wonder whether Elizabeth II might really come since she is said to be on holiday until October. It´s IMO at least not absurd.

If this previous engagement of Frederiks is the summer youth oloympics then i'm sure he could miss 1 day out of the 12 day events.
Also this is going to be a small wedding, Queen Elizabeth is unlikely to travel to Greece for the wedding of Niko, if the wedding was in London, there may have been a chance.
Why do you think having lots of Queen there will out way the dissappointment that one of Niko's aunts and cousin will not a attend the wedding?

I do not wonder that the Prince Frederick will not be, nor even Prince Joachim. I really feel bad because I think Niukolaos has attended all the events of his cousin and has maintained a good friendship with him, which is obviously not reciprocated, Nikolaos attended his birthdays .... but in reverse, never.

a few questions I have:
What is the Jewish connection to Tatiana, if there is any?
How rich are the Blatnicks? obviously not the Robert Miller wealth...
Who is her stepfather?

Tatiana is the granddaughter of the Countess Ellinka Gräfin von Einsiedel, between her ancestors was William , THE CONQUEROR. The Blatnik family was a rich family, proof of this was they followed the path of the great fortunes of Europe after of Second World War. First, before World War II lived in Yugoslavia, after her grandfather was established in Switzerland, a neutral country . After the Second World War, the path of the European fortunes were Cuba, Venezuela or Brazil, the three were fiscal paradises. They lived in Venezuela, in Caracas. In conclusion, they followed the path of great fortunes of Europe after The World War II. The mother's family, her grandmother is Countess, she lived in Venezuela with her second husband, Peter......... Her stepfather, Atilio Brillembourg Röhl, is Venezuela of German family , is a banker and currently lives in New York and has several businesses related to the world of finance.

I don't see how it is not obvious that the friendship is not reciprocated?We do not know personally what the friendship between Frederik, Joachim and Nikolaos is.
Has there ever been any pictures of Nikolaos birthday released? Do you know personally that neither Frederik nor Joachim have attended.
Also until the DRF releases a statement as to whose going, Frederik would not miss his cousins wedding, IMO.
