Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark was due to marry her fiancé, American lawyer Matthew Kumar this weekend but after being forced to postpone their big day, Princess Theodora took to Instagram to share how they marked the occasion instead. The pair had intended to have their nuptials on the Greek island of Spetses, in honour of Theodora's Greek heritage, and they decided to make their replacement celebrations an ode to all things Greek tradition. She shared a photo of the couple standing next to a table of Greek food, including cold meats, olives, cheese and Greek salad, while the couple also wore the national colours of Greece, blue and white, and dressed the table with blue napkins and white roses.

Theodora and Matthew met after Theodora moved from London, where she was born, to LA to pursue an acting career, and Matthew proposed to Theodora in November 2018.
