I've heard of Princess Olga but not of the Prince. Do you think this is an arranged marraige? Why would these 2 marry? Their royal houses are not reigning. Did they date long?

I read in other forum some time ago that he wanted to meet her when he saw this picture in a magazine.

Royals still marry royals. I don't think modern royal marriages are of the arranged kind, but I think it's because of their exposures to one another. Being royals, your social circle isn't very wide and you tend to run into other royals in functions.

BTW, he's quite cute, IMHO.

The facial hair on the groom....its different for this day & age. He kinda looks like he stepped out of a time capsule (sp?) with it. I'm not saying its bad or anything....but different. :)

The two are related, both descendents of George I of Greece. Princess Olga is his great-grand daughter, and Prince Aimone is his great-great grandson.

George I - P. Christopher - P. Michael - P. Olga

George I - Constantine I - P. Irene, Duchess of Aosta - P. Amedeo, Duke of Aosta - P. Aimone

She could be out of a time capsule to. They look kind of creepy to me in that last shot with the forest in the background.

Question

Wasn't Princess Olga Profiled in the Vanity Fair Issue (US Edition) from 2003.....in Sept. or Oct. It had all the Royals in the issue- with Prince William on the cover.
If I remember correctly it said she studied butterflies or something like that in the Rain Forrest? Am I thinking of the right Princess?? I have the issue still, but it is packed away so I can't look at it.

they not only both descend from king George I of Greece, but they also descend from the Duke of Guise (Orleanist pretender to the french throne).

DoGuise -> Henri, Count of Paris -> Claude, Dss of Aosta -> Aimone

DoGuise -> Francoise, Pss of Greece -> Michael, Ps of Greece -> Olga

Prince Aimone & Princess Olga

It was stated on the ERMB that Prince Aimone, Duke of Apulia, and Princess Olga have been living together for some time. They are currently living in Moscow where Prince Aimone is working.

It is not an arranged marriage.

Prince Aimone's father is HRH Prince Amedeo of Savoy, Duke of Aosta. Duke Amedeo was assaulted by Prince Vittorio Emanuele of Savoy at the reception after last year's Spanish Royal Wedding, to the horror of the other guests. Apparently he fell, bleeding, into the arms of Queen Anne Marie and an Arab Sheikh. King Juan Carlos was heard to mutter "never again!"

There is a rivalry between these two branches of the Royal House of Savoy; the Duke of Aosta is seen to be a gentleman, and Prince Vittorio Emanuele less so. It will be interesting to see if any of the rival Savoys are invited to the wedding. Probably unlikely!

Prince Aimone's mother is Princess Claude, the daughter of the late Comte de Paris, Head of the Royal House of France. She and the Duke were divorced in 1982, and both have since remarried.

ps.. in some other photos Prince Aimone's beard and moustache look very Salvador Dali.

A beautiful couple, they have been dating for a while...I hoped they would get married :)

At last an equal marriage again.
