Nina Flohr is cuddly with her husband Prince Philippos
Nina Flohr, 35, and her lover Prince Philippos of Greece, 36, are having a great time. On Instagram, Nina shares a photo of her and her husband lying in their arms and admiring the immensity of the sea. “We are a family”, she comments on the magical snapshot of the holidays, which also shows her dog.
Last year, the wedding bells rang for Nina and Prince Philippos for the second time. After getting married in a civil ceremony in 2020, the religious wedding in Athens followed in 2021.
Paul-Anton Esterházy de Galántha celebrates his dream wedding in Klagenfurt
Paul-Anton Esterházy von Galántha, 36, married his girlfriend Franziska von Reutter, 33, nicknamed Sissi. In the Maria Saal basilica in Klagenfurt, the couple celebrated their dream wedding last weekend with around 300 guests, and the first photos have since been circulating on Twitter. The bride wore a simple dress with a veil and a delicate tiara from her husband’s family sat on her head.
Paul-Anton is the only child of Anton Rudolf Marie Georg Christoph Hubertus Johannes Karl Aglaë, the 13th Prince Esterházy von Galántha and his first wife Ursula Koenig. The family was once considered the wealthiest in Austria and Hungary.

The Dutch historian dismisses Princess Amalia’s choice of studies as “superficial”.
In September, 18-year-old Princess Amalia will begin a new phase in her life: the heiress to the Dutch throne will move to Amsterdam to start her bachelor’s degree in politics, psychology, law and economics (PPLE) at the University of Amsterdam. The palace announced it on the official Instagram account in May this year. Historian Maarten van Rossem, 78, has no kind words for this career path, which the princess has carefully considered.
In the Dutch TV quiz “De Slimste Mens” he recently criticized Amalia’s decision and even thinks it’s a mistake. “Of course you have to do something, but it’s a first-class fun package,” says van Rossem, according to news portal ‘Metronieuws’. The reason? The historian calls the princess’s choice of subjects superficial: “It’s a piñata of superficiality. It has nothing to do with university studies” – which he is very surprised about, because: “It’s a very smart girl, it seems.” It is a bitter record with which Maarten van Rossem risks attracting the wrath of more than one Dutchman. Because the college admissions process is considered demanding, only a few participants get one of the coveted spots. According to the study site, only 215 people were admitted in September 2020.

Princess Märtha Louise and Durek Verrett cause irritation online
Princess Märtha Louise, 50, and her fiancé Durek Verrett, 47, are currently causing a stir on social media. The shaman posts a video he took with his sweetheart and actor Jake Hunter. The clip first shows Märtha sitting on a bench with her durek and eating a salad. “I need a towel,” said the Norwegian princess. “I’ll get you one,” his partner replies, rushes over to Jake Hunter, who is playing the part of a passerby, and rips off his shirt.
“What is that for? Hunter asks, to which Durek replies, “It’s for the princess.” A confused-looking Märtha Louise accepts the torn shirt and hesitantly thanks him. What is this disturbing video about? This isn’t what the couple’s day-to-day looks like, with this recording the princess and the shaman are just trending TikTok. For several weeks, countless videos have been circulating on the social media platform in which a person’s top is used as a towel. Fans seem to appreciate the couple’s humor, as below the post are a number of laughing emojis and enthusiastic comments.
