A royal Greek wedding

December 12, 1907

Prince George of Greece and Princess Marie Bonaparte were married today in Athens with the "splendid and elaborate rite of the Greek Church," reports the New York Times. 

The couple were married at the cathedral in Athens in the presence of the King and Queen of the Hellenes,  Greek officials and members of the diplomatic corps.

Prince George, second son of King George,  and Princess Marie were married in a civil ceremony in France on November 21.  The Greek Orthodox church does not recognize civil marriages.
