Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark graduates from NYU

The Greek Royal Family had much to celebrate this week as Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark – commonly referred to as Olympia – graduated from New York University (NYU)’s Gallatin School for Individualized Study in New York City.

Watching her graduate were her parents and her at least two of her brothers, Princes Alexios and Achileas. Her two youngest brothers, Princes Odysseas-Kimon, and Aristidis-Stavros were not seen in any of the photos shared, but it is assumed they also attended. She was called “Olympia Greece” as she walked on stage to receive her diploma in Manhattan’s Lincoln Center.

Her proud parents shared the news on their Instagram accounts with her father, Crown Prince Pavlos sharing several images of the blonde royal saying, “Congratulations Olympia you Graduated from NYU I am so proud of you #NYU #Gallatin#classof2019.”

Her paternal uncle, Prince Nikolaos, commented on the Instagram post congratulating his niece.

Crown Princess Marie-Chantal made sure to share her joy on the social networking site, as well, showing a photo of her daughter in her cap and gown on the NYU campus remarking, “Congratulations Olympia 💜 NYU class of 2019 so proud of you.”

Not to be left out, her oldest two younger brothers congratulated her on their Instagram stories that same day.

Olympia, 22, also shared images from the day of her in the city and in her cap in gown celebrating her accomplishment before the family gathered together for dinner in her honour.
