Shouldn't the title be "Prince Philippos and Princess Nina Current Events"?
 
:previous:
Yes, I also think that should be the title of the topic. Doesn't Nina already have the title of Princess?

A poster wrote in the couple's wedding thread:

From the Royal family communiqué, I understand that Nina is not yet a Princess, she will be a Princess when she contracts a religious marriage, is my opinio or deduction.

I have not seen the communiqué they refer to.

In regards to having a title, my understanding is that the family does not truly have any Greek titles as their royal titles were stripped by the republic of Greece, even if the family has persisted in using them.
 
:previous:They do not call themselves kings or princes. They bear titles that belong to their royal house.
You have to differentiate: A state of a real house, they are not the same.
The Greek royal house is a European royal house, recognized by the rest of the royal houses, they carry titles that are valid for the royal houses, and for the States with monarchy that recognize the titles of royalty. Britain allowed to be identified with the title of royalty, Princess Theodora in her British passport she is "Princess Theodora", because Britain is a state with a monarchy and recognizes the protocols of European royal houses. Princess Irene acquired the Spanish passport, Spain is a country with a monarchy and recognizes the protocols of royal houses, this allows identification with the title. Currently, King Constantine, due to a 1994 Greek law that unjustly withdraws his passport, has to carry the Danish passport, in which it appears as HM King Constantine, Denmark is a state with a monarchy that recognizes the European royal houses. The International Olympic Committee , expressly, recognizes the titles of the royal houses, King Constantine who is one of the oldest members of the committee is recognized as king, this and due to the Royal House, not the state from which they come The Republics do not recognize the value of the European royal houses and their titles, they only recognize the Heads of State and their titles, the Greek Republic is not the exception. For the Greek state in the form of a republic, no royal title is valid, because it does not recognize the royal houses, only the positions they occupy and the title that this state has given to the institution, but no royal families.
And finally, I am Greek, and I am free to believe in whatever I want, the Greek state cannot forbid me to believe, I believe in the monarchy and the titles.
Philippos is Prince, and his passport say "Prince Philippos".

Titles are created by royal houses, not states. States cannot create Royal Houses titles. The republic does not give legal effects to titles, but it does not exterminate titles, because it is not competent to do so.

Sooner or later the official website of the family will be updated with the addition of Nina (Flohr) and we will see whether/when a title will be added or not. Or we'll get an official information from another source.

Up to that time the temporary solution is totally fine.
 
Just seen their Christmas card. Wow these are big dogs. Really hope we will see more of the couple. Nice pic by the way.
 
Looks more like average kneehigh dogs :) Not big at all and I think the couple bend down on the knees for the picture.
 
Is there any video of Philippos speaking Greek? His senior brothers and sister manage it well, -unlike his kid-sister who doesn't speak it that fluently... But I've never heard Philippos speaking Greek...

Thanks for the link! –hadn’t seen that…

Doesn’t sound that fluent to me… His Greek seems closer to Theodora’s than to his two older brothers, who are –slightly- better..
 
Prince Philippos speaks much better than Princess Theodora, much more fluent.
Prince Pavlos it is obvious that when he speaks Greek he is thinking about the translation, but I understand him, he does not use Greek, but when he has been using it for several days, he speaks it fluently again. Prince Nikolaos speaks very well.... and Princess Alexia I have not heard her speak for many years but she spoke Greek very fluently, however since she went to live in Spain I do not remember a greek interview, it was her first language.
 
I have been following Nina Florh on her instagram account, and I ask, Where do Philippos and Nina reside? In Switzerland? He lived in New York and she in London, but she only shares photos from Switzerland (and Mozambique where she has a hotel business)

Prince Philippos continues working in New York, and Nina is with her hotel project in Mozambique. It is obvious that the civil wedding is a "commitment" wedding, the wedding will be religious.
I read in Point de Vue, that the religious wedding could be for this spring or summer. I know that Point de Vue says it as a hypothesis, but it could be
 
I admit that I had doubts about Nina, but she has begun to gain my appreciation, she could be my favorite Princess ???

Has the location of Philippos and Nina's wedding been decided upon?
 
For photos and information about the couple’s wedding, please see our extra thread at the wedding subforum, double posts have been removed.
 
:previous:the first photo published by Nina is Porto Heli.
And second photo is Saint Emilianos near of the King and Queen's house.
I was in Saint Emilianos 2 years ago, I was around the King's house. Near the King's house, there were flocks of sheep that grazed freely, the houses were surrounded by cypress trees ... It is as in the photo.
I have it clear, they are in the house of the King and Queen:p?
 
Beautiful picture.

Still no news about their religious wedding?
 
I just read in a blog, that Nina Florh and Philippos have been at a christening , Theodora Warre, Nina's best friend, and Antonis Chandris, Filippos's best friend, have baptized to their son, in Greece and by the orthodox rite, Chandris is Greek.

Nina has been the main godmother, even I read, unfortunately I do not have the photo that has been published in the instagram stories section of nina Florh, she was next to the baby one when he was submerged by Pope in the water, she was holding the washcloth to receive to the baby.

Do this means what Nina Florh has already assumed the Christian Orthodox faith?, I remember that in the Orthodox baptisms, the main godfather or godmother must be Orthodox, if it is, which means that the religious wedding will be celebrated.
If someone from this forum has captured the photo that Nina shared in this section of instagram, could you post it? thank you

No it is no mandatory in Greek orthodox baptism the godfather to be orthodox , he can be catholic also provided he is baptized. I'm not sure if he can be protestant though, I have a doubt about this as the protestant baptism is different from the orthodox, different conception of the holy trinity (of course Godfather has to be baptized also.
