In 1902, Prince Andrew met Princess Alice of Battenberg during his stay in London on the occasion of the coronation of Edward VII, who was his uncle-by-marriage and her grand-uncle. Princess Alice was a daughter of Prince Louis of Battenberg and Princess Victoria of Hesse and by Rhine, King Edward's niece. They fell in love, and the following year, on 6 October 1903, Andrew married Alice in a civil wedding at Darmstadt. The following day two religious wedding services were performed: one Lutheran in the Evangelical Castle Church, and another Greek Orthodox in the Russian Chapel on the Mathildenhöhe.

Prince Andrew was the seventh child and fourth son of King George I of Greece and Olga Constantinovna of Russia. He was a grandson of Christian IX of Denmark.

Prince and Princess Andrew had five children, one of whom is Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II.

It's interesting to speculate whether they would have become a couple if King Edward's coronation had not been postponed for several weeks.

There has been quite a bit about Alice being instantly smitten with him, but not too much about what Andrea thought, even though Alice was the beautiful one.
The Diamond Star Tiara Princess Alice wore on her wedding day went beautifully with her veil.
