Translation of Patmos Times article

Thanks to one of my readers, who is Greek - he did the translation.

(This picture is from a previous visit of the Queen to Patmos, with her cousin Michael behind her. This isn't a pic of her arriving in Patmos for the wedding.)

Queen Sofia of Spain will arrive in Patmos the 27th of September with a helicopter in order to attend the wedding of 37 year old Princess Olga-Elisabeth, with the chosen of her heart, her distant relative Prince Aimone, which will take place the afternoon of the same day, at the Church of the Virgin Saviouress in Patmos Town.

Princess Olga Elisabeth is the daughter of Prince Michael and Marina Karella, who have a home for many years in Patmos Town and Prince Aimone is the son of the Duke of Aosta Amedeo, who is the son of the daughter of King Constantine I, Princess Irene. Olga is a great-granddaughter and Aimone a great-great-grandson of King George I.

Other attendees who will be in attendance in Patmos will be former King Constantine with Anna-Maria, who will be guests at the home of the Aga Khan. Princess Irene, Catherine Aga Khan with her children & grandchildren are already in Patmos.

The wedding will be officiated by the Archimandrate Antipas at the Holy Church of the Virgin Saviour. The reception will be held at the old Municipal school of Patmos town.

Yes -- contrary to what some write. Olga and her sister do not have dynastic rights, but they have the HRH and the title Princess of Greece.
