Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark (born 26 April 1986) is the youngest child of King Constantine II of Greece and Anne-Marie of Denmark. He is currently eight in the line of succession to the defunct Greek throne.

Early LifeEdit

Prince Philippos was born on 26 April 1986 at St Mary’s Hospital in London where his family was living in exile. He was named after his paternal cousin, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.[1][2]

He has four older siblings: Princess Alexia (b. 1965), Crown Prince Pavlos (b. 1967), Prince Nikolaos (b. 1969) and Princess Theodora (b. 1983).

The Prince was raised in London and did not visit his homeland until he was seven-years-old in 1993 when his family was allowed in the country for a private yachting trip.[1]

ChristeningEdit

The prince was christened at the Greek Cathedral of St. Sophia, Bayswater, London, England, on 10 July 1986. Among his godparents were his uncle King Juan Carlos of Spain, his first cousin twice removed the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess of Wales, his aunt Princess Benedikte of Denmark, his first cousin Infanta Elena ofSpain,[3] his cousin Prince Michael of Greece, Kyril, Prince of Preslav, and Countess Mountbatten.[4]

EducationEdit

As part of his primary education, the prince attended the Hellenic School at London, which was founded by his parents. Philippos went on to study Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington, DC; he graduated from Georgetown in 2008 with his bachelors.[3]

It has been reported he speaks English and Greek fluently. It is also highly possible he speaks Danish as his mother was born a Danish princess.[1]

Career Edit

He lives in New York City. Since 2014, Philippos has worked as an analyst for Ortelius Capital, "an alternative investment group specializing in hedge funds and private equity." [3]

Personal lifeEdit

Prince Philippos has been in a relationship with Nina Flohr,[2] the only child of Swiss billionaire Thomas Flohr, founder of VistaJet, and his ex-wife Katharina Konecny. Philippos and Nina attended the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank in 2018.[3]

He is the godfather to his sister Alexia's youngest daughter, Amelia and his brother Pavlos' son, Prince Odysseas-Kimon.
