Olympia, 24, who has kept a low profile on social media in recent months, looked ready for summer in a soft blue dress, blue overshirt and black ankle boots. 

Nina looked fresh in a striped pastel frock with puff sleeves. 

Nina and Philippos married in December in a tiny private ceremony in the glitzy Swiss ski resort of St Moritz, with just their fathers King Constantine, 80, and Thomas Flohr, 60, present due to Covid-19 restrictions.    

Last month the couple celebrated their nuptials with a second low-key wedding hosted by Vogue writer Alice Naylor- Leyland and her husband Tom at their home of Stibbington House in Cambridge, with the pair decorating their home with white balloons and blue flowers for the occasion. 

Guests included Alice, who was named as one of Tatler’s ‘society swans’ of 2018, and her husband Tom, who is heir to one of Britain’s land-owning dynasties. His family has historic land and property across the country.

The bride shared a gushing tribute to her hosts Alice Naylor-Leyland and her husband Tom for hosting the wedding and said there had been ‘speeches and happy tears’ during the event 

In snaps shared on Instagram over the weekend, the couple could be seen cutting into a three tiered wedding cake 

He is the son of Baronet Sir Philip Naylor-Leyland and the grandson of the late Lord Lambton and owns the 17th-century Talbot hotel in Malton, North Yorkshire near their rented farmhouse home. 

Others invited to the event were magazine editor Violet Henderson and Princess Eugenie’s friend Caroline Rupert. 

Under current Covid rules there is a limit of 30 guests at weddings – although the cap is expected to be lifted on June 21st – ‘freedom day’ – when most restrictions are set to be lifted. 

The couple were first married in a private ceremony in December, and were joined only by their fathers King Constantine, 80, and Thomas Flohr, 60, due to Covid-19 restrictions

Philippos, who was born at St Mary’s Hospital in London in 1986, was raised in a 13-bedroom stately house on the edge of Hampstead Heath where Princess Diana was a frequent visitor with Prince William and Prince Harry.

He’s known to be private and largely shuns the limelight, but he’s made appearances at numerous high profile events such as the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden in 2010 and her sister Princess Madeleine in 2013.

He and Nina also attended Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding. 

Who are the Greek royal family? 

Philippo’s father Constantine II was king of Greece until he was ousted from power in a military coup in 1967. 

Greece descended into civil war after it was liberated from the Nazis in 1944, and the conflict finally came to a head 23 years in 1967.

Constantine had come to the throne aged 24 three years previously following the death of his father King Paul but was forced to flee when a junta of army generals overthrew the ruling monarchy and took control of the country.

The military dictatorship continued until 1974 when it was overthrown. 

Constantine had hoped to return to the throne but instead the country became a republic.

A law was passed in 1994 stripped Constantine of his Greek citizenship, passport, and property.

His wife Anne-Marie is the sister is Queen Margrethe of Denmark.

Constantine, the first cousin of the Duke of Edinburgh, and his wife Anne-Marie of Denmark fled Athens for Britain and set up home in north London, buying a 13-bedroom stately house on the edge of Hampstead Heath.

There they raised their five children Alexia, Pavlos, Nikolaos, Theodora and Philippos, and would often host visits from Princess Diana and the young prince Harry and William in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
