Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Tatiana Blatnik: wedding plans

Prince Nikolaos and Tatiana Blatnik

It looks like 2010 will be a stellar year for royal weddings.
With Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden having already announced
her 19 June ceremony, it’s been revealed that Londonbased
Prince Nikolaos of Greece and his longterm love
Tatiana Blatnik will marry in Greece by summer’s end.

London-based couple Nikolaos – son of ex-King Constantine
and Queen Anne-Marie (standing left) –
and Tatiana, 29, gathered with their respective future in-laws,
Tatiana’s mother Marie-Blanche and stepfather
Atilio Brillembourg (standing right),
for their first official family photo.

Nikolaos, son of ex-King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie,
and Venezuela-born Tatiana, 29, revealed a few of the details
as they held their first joint press conference in Athens last week,
one month after announcing their engagement.

Nikolaos told how he’d presented his future bride
with an engagement ring – an enormous sparkler
that he’d had made in London, centred by a blue sapphire
which once belonged to Queen Anne-Marie –
on bended knee late last year in Greece,
aboard the royal yacht, Afroessa.
The proposal, he said, was “a total surprise for Tatiana
and a very emotional moment for us both”.

Swiss-educated Tatiana, whose mother is German
and father is Slovenian, is studying Greek
and adores the country, noted Nikolaos, right down to the food.
So it may come as no surprise
that it was her idea to hold the wedding there.
Participating as groomsmen on the big day,
which will be filled with Greek tradition and attended by royals
from around the world, will be Tatiana’s brother Boris,
Nikolaos’ brother Crown Prince Pavlos
and one of his best friends, Nasos Thanopoulos.

After the wedding, however, the newlyweds will
remain in London, where the elegant Tatiana,
granddaughter of Ellinka Countess von Einsiedel,
works for designer Diane von Furstenberg’s PR office.

I’m so glad Nikolaos likes my cooking.
Actually, that’s what’s helped keep our
relationship going for six and a half years
