Has anyone seen Alexandra and Gustav -- Princess Benedikte's children? They are cousins and I haven't seen them in any of the pictures. I understand that the reason Benedikte isn't attending is because she is acting of regent in Denmark while the others are attending the wedding in Greece.

I guess for the Royal watchers at this board and in Greece: yes.
For the Greek people in general: not really.
My bf is visiting his family in Greece right now and none of them even knew there was a wedding of a member of the former Royal family.
They hardly know any other family member then former King Konstantin.

There is one picture with two of Benediktes children, Gustav and Alexandra with their partners and Alexandras son:

What a pity that Princess Nathalie isn't there! But her son had arrived on earth a couple of weeks ago.

For the greek royal watchers is a big event and we all look forward to see it, i hope the live coverage is from the church and a bit from the reception so we can enjoy them.

As for the greek people in general i don't think they are aware, maybe they got informed (especially the younger generation) from Star channel because its target group is mostly youth.
I did hear a negative comment from Alter Tv today that having a glamourous wedding with pre-wedding parties etc etc is provocative here in Greece now that the country has the economic crisis with unemployed people trying to support their families.

I think that prince Carl-Philip likes brunette girls, can you imagine he meets a local girl at the island??

The whole world is an economic crisis! We need events like this....besides the shallowness of the glamour and the outfits that I enjoy, we need people to spend money! Some of the press is there, and they have to stay some where and eat and the same with the royals. How are we going to get out of this recession if people don't spend their money? So hotels and resturants are making a little more money now because of the extra people.

And let's not count the pictures that show the beauty of the island. I always knew Greece was beautiful but wow!

From where I stand this is a lovely relaxed family affair. Not ostenatious at all. But perception is easy and of course I see something totally different in pictures than if I was in Greece.

I see. Well, like I said I haven't seen any of her there but I've been looking. She's definitely one of my favorite royals. I'll let you know if I find anything.

Well, but I think it's something different with Greece and the national bankruptcy. I can understand some people in Greece are annoyed to see the Royals celebrating a huge wedding while the country goes though the biggest crisis ever.
..
However, the whole wedding is financed privately by the family, isn't it? So maybe some of the Greek people can enjoy the event anyway.

I thought it was financed by both of the families. Even though its low key, it has some high profile guests so is not a cheap affair I will agree with that.

Yes, I forgot Greece was in a bankruptcy situation but really....isnt' the whole world one step away from it. But that's off topic......

So have we missed anyone? It looks like with the exception of Nathalie and Frederik all of the cousins are present. No representation from the houses of Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco or the Middle Eastern Royals.

From the outside it looks like they invited people that they are close to which is nice.

The wedding is financed by the families I gues. Obiously is not finnanced by the state.

Have you ever hear about Spetses?. I didn't. I would like to go sometime, the island looks beautiful. This event means lot of free publicity for the island... and you know publicity= money.
So I think is not that bad. People around the world will hear about Spetses so it is a big oportunity. I some case remembers me when Michelle Obama came to Marbella, and Granada...Lot of free publicity=Lot of oportunities.

I totally agree with you, i just think that they wanted to say something bad and they did.

I find it very low profile, elegant and private as much as possible since they have high profile guests.

I bet that rich people here had more expensive weddings but since they had no media attention they got away with it.
We should think that the eyes of Europe are on our country now and who knows people would like to visit the country and the place prince Nikolaos married.

Warren the wedding starts at 19:30 and the guests will be arriving from 19:00.
