Prince Paul of Yugoslavia and Princess Olga of Greece & Denmark - 1923
On 22 october 1923 Prince Paul of Yugoslavia princess Olga of Greece and Denmark daughter of Prince Nicholas of Greece and Grand Duchess Elena Vladimirovna of Russia. The marriage took place in Belgrade:
I thought Olga married the Prince in London. He was a student at Oxford when they met. Am I wrong? Thanks Marengo:flowers:
The Duke of York and Prince Paul met each other while the latter studied at Oxford indeed. They became friends and the duke was best man at the wedding. i believe Princess Olga actually was one of the few foreign royals that became close to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother btw. The couple married in belgrade tough, which would also explain the large amount of royalties from the balkans in the group photo.
I am not sure but in 1923 the duke & duchess of York also were sponsor of the future king Peter II of Yugoslavia, for which they apparently also traveled to the country. I supose that both occassions happened during one visit of the York couple (seems more logical than they travelling twice in one year to Yugoslavia in 1923).
It makes sense Marengo. I just believed they were married in London but then again your explanation makes much more sense.
WHo is the groom's father ? I think Marina and Elisabeth , the bride's sisters should be on the picture. Perhaps the lady in white behind Elena ?
Prince Arsen, the father of the groom, is standing next to king ferdinand of romania. I believe the lady standing on the right is queen Elisabeth of Greece, née Pss. of Romania. The man behind king Alxander is crown prince Carol of Romania.
It seems to me that the duchess of York is the lady sitting at far right.
