A special birthday for one of Europe’s newest princesses

Saturday was a special day for the Greek royal family. The newest Greek princess turned 35 years old. Princess Nina, married to Prince Philippos, celebrated her birthday with her new family in Greece. Princess Nina is a daughter in law of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece.

The public got a sneak peek of how the day was celebrated. The princess shared some photographs of her husband, Prince Philippos, who served her a plate of good food, while the princess was able to reveal that this was the best birthday she had ever had.

Prince Philippos and Princess Nina were married at a religious wedding on October 23 last year and the year before they had also been married civilly at a private ceremony in St. Moritz in Switzerland. With the weddings, Princess Nina, formerly known as Flohr, was given the title Princess of Greece and Denmark.

At their wedding in Athens, Princess Nina and Prince Philippos, the youngest son of Queen Anne-Marie and King Constantine, were joined by Danish royals with Princess Benedikte and her family among the guests. There, too, were the British princesses, Beatrice and Eugenie, as well as Queen Sofia of Spain and her daughter, Princess Elena.

Nina Natassja Flohr was born in Switzerland on January 22, 1987, daughter of Katharina and Thomas Flohr. Katharina Flohr, who founded and was the fashion editor of Russian and Greek Vogue before she later became creative and managing director of the jewelery company Fabergé, today has her own jewellery and art company in London. Her father, Thomas Flohr, owns the company Vista Jet and the company put him on Forbes’ list of billionaires in 2018.

Princess Nina herself is also extremely successful and has founded the non-profit organization Bazaruto Center for Scientific Studies in Mozambique, which works with research in the marine environment and sustainability, while she is also behind the luxury resort Kisawa Sanctuary in Mozambique.
