At first the journalist reached Prince Nikolaos and she wished the best for their upcoming wedding and he said thank you very much. She then asked if everything is ready for their wedding and he repplied everything is ready, everything is ok, everything is fine.

Then the journalist talked to the groom giving him wishes for his wedding and asked him how does he feel that his best friend is also becoming his best-man.....the groom replied that i have two best friends and both are becoming my best-men.

The video mentions that the name of the bride and the fact that she has become a very close friend of Tattiana. The reporter says that Prince Nikolaos arrived first and 30 minutes later his father, mother and older brother arrived.

The ex-King gave wishes for happiness to the new couple and then the journalist said that you have the preparations for Prince Nikolaos wedding how things are going? The king replied excellent!!!!

Then the Queen said that Greece is the best place for the wedding.

The journalist says to Prince Pavlos.....next month is the wedding of your brother and he said Nikolaos yes yes.
What will you wish him and how the preparations are going??
And he says that the preparations are going really well and i think that he is prepared from many years ago. We are all looking forward with joy to this wedding.

Kings of Greece are on holiday in Porto Heli, and the Prince Nikolaos and Tatiana also, but the rest of the family is not in Greece, this is obvious, Marie Chantal was not in this wedding. I have read in this forum that Prince Pavlo and Marie Chantal were in Los Angeles. Is possible that the family of Pavlo are of vacations in Los Angeles, and he has interrupted his vacation for this wedding

Where was Marie Chantal? Nassos Thanopoulos and family are the best friends of Prince Pavlo and the royal family.

Just because Niko and Tatiana attended the wedding, that means Tatiana and MC don't get along?

i think it's obvious what's going on here. the members of the grf that were eternally funded by the thanopoulos family had to be there. pavlos' rich wife doesn't need them. she has her own cash...so, she could continue her luxurious vacation or whatever she's doing in the moment. and she did well.

You think that for MC "The Greek Royal Family is the family of her husband"

Lumutqueen, I think that they get along but I think the circle of friends is different from Tatiana and Marie Chantal, it is logical they are not the same generation. Thanolopolos is a close friend of the royal family and f Prince Pavlo .I really wished that MC accompaning to Prince Pavlo.

em, sorry my friend, their greek are overrated...unfortunately... nothing special here, a simple line from each one of them...greece is a beautiful place for a wedding...we wish them happiness...we're ready for our wedding etc. let's not go crazy about these things. they speak english most of their life and when they're here, they put the greek mask on. the rest fairytales are for the kids.

with respect

A short questions of the journalists' , short answers . The interview conducted in 2005 and 2006 in a Greek magazine to Queen Anne Marie was made in Greek . They have lived in London almost 40 years!

my friend, they aren't gonna baptise them! you mean they will be their best men. now something serious: in the greek church if someone like nicolas becomes a best man for someone, let's say thanopoulos, then thanopoulos can't become the best man to nicolas. i hope you understand how i mean it. these exchanges aren't allowed by the church. who knows here how they arranged that? i'm very curious to learn.

I do not know but it was said by Prince Nikolaos, that Nassos and Boris would be two godparents of his wedding. Tatiana exactly was a conversion to other religion, I think. ...

Gregory, I heard the King and Queen, Pavlos, Nicholas and Alexia and their Greek is fluent and precise. The two younger children either cannot speak or are not fluent in Greek and prefer English. It is unfair to say that the King, Queen and elder children do not speak Greek and put on a mask.
