The one and only Greek royal to marry a Greek woman was King Alexander (reigned 1917-1920) and it was considered morganatic.  Although his wife and daughter were raised to the HRH style after his unfortunate early death, I don't think the marriage was ever really approved of by the family, or even by the Greek people.

Nowadays of course the members of the "Greek RF" could marry anyone they choose.

Prince Michael, last surviving grandson of George I, married a Greek woman, Marina Karella.  Their daughters are princesses of Greece, but not of Denmark.

Their youngest daughter, Olga, is married to her third cousin Prince Aimone of Savoy-Aosta, Duke of Aosta. The couple has 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl.

"...Unlike other members of the Greek Royal Family, she was not deemed a full member of the Greek royal house under the monarchy, despite being born of a marriage recognized by King Constantine II of Greece (pursuant to Greek legislative decree 1298/1949). As daughters of a non-dynastic marriage, she and her elder sister, Princess Alexandra, are not accorded the traditional style of Royal Highness, nor do they bear the titular suffix "and Denmark"..."


In addition:

Michael --> https://en.wikipedia.org/...ael_of_Greece_and_Denmark

Michael was a 1st cousin of Philip

Michael is a really fascinating person. If you have not heard of the sad story of Elisa Izquierdo, it's definitely not for the faint of heart, but basically Prince Michael wanted to sponsor a child at a Montessori school in New York and Elisa was chosen. He became close to her and her father offered to pay her tuition through 12th grade, but when her father died, custody was given to her abusive mother. Michael really fought to get her placed with her father's relatives and even when her mother put her in public school, insisted that he was still willing to pay for her private schooling. The story ends, sadly, with tragic results for the little girl. I believe Michael helped pay for her funeral.

It truly was.  But not nearly as horrifying as that green thing near the end of the article.

The bride's taste is all in her mouth.  Crinkled tight fitting satin and a thigh high slit.  What a great addition to the family.  Actually, she should fit right in with the younger generation.

Also Phillipos seems to have been beaten by an ugly stick over the past few months!  What happened?

Love this phrase!  And what a perfect scenario to employ it...this wedding was definitely the inverse of the "champagne taste on a beer budget" saying!

Her dress sense reminds me of Tatiana Casiraghi .... another one with mega bucks who looks badly dressed

I haven't read anything recently.

As for the dress of Philippos' wife, it's horrible but even worst is not ironed. What is going on with the royals and their non ironed clothes, lately?

I'll give Tatiana this: she really doesn't care, is very much her own person and didn't look tacky in what we could see of her civil or religious dresses. Nina's is awful.  Champagne Gemsheal. Couldn't any family attend  the wedding, within COVID-19 rules?

I actually don't have a problem with any of the dresses she's wearing in the pics in that article. I just don't think they fit her properly. They would look good on, say, Tatiana Blatnik, who has a very model-ly figure. But I also think some dresses look better conceptually than on a person, such as the deep green one.

First I don't think this was a wedding just a celebration weekend with friends that has a dress up angle to it. Since they married during covid people probably just want to celebrate them all fancy like the friends are designing the wedding reception. Yes the dress is not the best or the worst but the lack of ironing is the thing here. Nice to have fancy friends.
