It read, “We wish to inform you of a significant and heartfelt decision made by TRH Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana. After fourteen years of marriage, they have chosen to amicably dissolve their union.”

It added: ‘This decision was reached with great care and mutual respect, reflecting the depth of their appreciation for one another and the moments they have shared,” their steps covered for those who like to follow royal actions.

The statement continued, ‘Their future interactions will continue to be guided by these same principles of respect and understanding, as they transition into a relationship rooted in a strong friendship. They will continue to live and build their lives in Greece, a place they both call home. The Family will always support them.’

The Prince liked to hang out with celebrities and the super-rich and was known as one of the most social and stylish royals on the scene, said Tatler, which follows the goings on of such people.

Tatiana, who is originally from Venezuela, married Prince Nikolaos in 2010, with the wedding dubbed as “Mamma Mia, With Aristocrats,” and were often in the news and the headlines while in public.

They didn’t have children and the statement said they wanted their followers to know they still have devotion to each other but it wasn’t said why they didn’t want to be together anymore.

Shortly after her wedding, she confessed, ‘I do not feel like a princess. I do not feel that I married a prince, with a title. Well actually, yes, he is my prince, but nothing more,” she said, the magazine noted.

The younger brother of Pavlos, the Crown Prince of Greece, he and his wife Princess Tatiana moved back to Greece in 2013 where he is pursuing a career as a landscape photographer, with the pair travelling around to capture the glistening Greek islands.

Tatiana spoke of finding the adjustment to life in Greece challenging, telling Vogue, ‘I remember when we drove in, it felt like everyone was traveling in the opposite direction.’ She also explained she didn’t lead a particularly glamorous lifestyle in Greece, adding ‘I live a very simple life here. I work, I go to the supermarket, I cook, I walk my dog, and the Greek people have welcomed me like they would anyone else.’

The statement ended with: “Thank you very much for your respect and discretion.”

The news comes just a few weeks after Nikolaos and Tatiana appeared together in the UK for a memorial event honoring Nikolaos’s father, King Constantine, the last King of Greece, who passed away at the age of 82 in January 2023 after treatment in an intensive care unit.
