HRH Princess Alexia of Greece and Denmark and Carlos Morales Quintana
July 9, 1999
Another popularly requested wedding gown today - that of the eldest of the ex-King and Queen of Greece's five children, Princess Alexia.
Today, Alexia and Carlos live in the Canary Islands with their four children. But before she could marry her cute, younger, sailing-mad Spanish architect, there was a pre-wedding bash to be had, and Alexia showed up in my favorite Alexia look of all time:
She married Carlos in London's Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Saint Sophia in an understated gown from Austrian designer Inge Sprawson (a favorite of her mother, Queen Anne-Marie).
Crown Princess Margaret's Irish lace veil over her chignon, and topped the whole thing with the family's traditional wedding tiara, the Khedive of Egypt Tiara, and a pair of diamond earrings.
