Greek royal couple announce divorce after 13 years

Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana express their mutual respect and friendship as they end their marriage, pledging to remain active in Greece


In a joint announcement released on April 19, Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana of Greece revealed their decision to end their marriage of 13 years. The former royal couple expressed the difficulty of their choice but emphasized their enduring appreciation, respect, and love for each other. They affirmed their commitment to maintaining a relationship grounded in mutual respect and understanding, transitioning from spouses to deep and sincere friends. Despite their divorce, both Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana intend to continue living in Greece, which they consider their home, and remain active in their respective endeavors. The announcement concluded with a note of gratitude for the public's respect and discretion during this personal transition.

The news of the divorce follows closely on the heels of a public appearance by Prince Nikolaos, 54, and Princess Tatiana, 43, at a thanksgiving service held in honor of King Constantine, Nikolaos' father and the last king of Greece. The service took place on February 27, 2024, at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, where members of the Greek and British royal families convened. Notably, Prince William's absence from the ceremony was attributed to his wife Kate Middleton's cancer diagnosis, which was revealed later.

Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana married in August 2010 at the Cathedral of Ayios Nikolaos on the island of Spetses in Greece. The bride, Princess Tatiana, donned the Antique Corsage Tiara borrowed from Queen Anne-Marie for the occasion. The royal wedding was attended by esteemed guests including Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden, as well as future monarchs King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain and King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.
