Princess Diana’s godson, Prince Philippos of Greece, enjoyed a day out with his new wife Nina and niece Princess Olympia of Greece, days after his second wedding celebration.
Philippos, a New York-based hedge fund analyst, and Nina posed with the glamorous Olympia outside London’s Somerset House, where the photography of Philippos’ brother Nikolaos is featured as part of the London Design Biennale.
Nikolaos, 51, and Philippos, 35, are the younger brothers of Olympia’s father, Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, 54. Crown Prince Pavlos is married to socialite Princess Marie-Chantal.
Their parents are King Constantine (Prince William’s godfather) and Queen Anne-Marie, who still use their royal titles despite the abolition of the Greek monarchy in 1973.

Olympia, 24, who has been keeping a low profile on social media for the past few months, looked summer ready in a soft blue dress, blue overshirt and black ankle boots.
Nina looked fresh in a striped pastel dress with puff sleeves.
Nina and Philippos married in a small private ceremony in the glitzy Swiss ski resort of St. Moritz in December, with only their fathers King Constantine, 80, and Thomas Flohr, 60, in attendance due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Last month, the couple celebrated their wedding with a second quiet wedding hosted by Vogue writer Alice Naylor-Leyland and her husband Tom at their home of Stibbington House in Cambridge, with the couple decorating their home for the occasion with white balloons and blue flowers.
Guests included Alice, who was named 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.

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 farm.
Others invited to the event were magazine editor Violet Henderson and Princess Eugenie’s friend Caroline Rupert.
Under current Covid rules, there is a 30-guest limit at weddings – although the limit is expected to be lifted on June 21 – “freedom day” – when most restrictions are lifted.
The couple married for the first time 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.
Born in 1986 at St Mary’s Hospital in London, Philippos grew up in a stately 13-bedroom house on the outskirts of Hampstead Heath, where Princess Diana regularly visited Prince William and Prince Harry.
Known for being private, he largely shuns the limelight, but he has appeared 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 the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.
Who is the Greek Royal Family?
Philippo’s father Constantine II was king of Greece until he was ousted from power in a 1967 military coup.
Greece fell into civil war after being liberated from the Nazis in 1944, and the conflict finally came to a head in 1967 for 23 years.
Constantine had come to the throne three years earlier after the death of his father, King Paul, at the age of 24, but had to flee when a junta of army generals overthrew the ruling monarchy and took control of the country.
The military dictatorship lasted until 1974 when it was overthrown.
Constantine had hoped to return to the throne, but the country became a republic instead.
In 1994, a law was passed that stripped Constantine of his Greek citizenship, passport and property.
His wife Anne-Marie is the sister of Queen Margrethe of Denmark.
Constantine, the Duke of Edinburgh’s first cousin, and his wife Anne-Marie of Denmark fled Athens to Britain and settled in North London, where they bought a stately 13-bedroom house on the outskirts of Hampstead Heath.
There they raised their five children Alexia, Pavlos, Nikolaos, Theodora and Philippos, and in the late 1980s and early 1990s they often received visits from Princess Diana and the young Prince Harry and William.
