Crown Prince Pavlos and Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, and they had a special memento from their big day to celebrate – an enormous bouquet of flowers from their royal wedding florist.

Marie-Chantal and her husband posed for a sweet photo at their family home in honour of the milestone anniversary, and her caption revealed that their wedding had one big thing in common with Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's nuptials in 2018.

"25 years ago I married this gem! Loved every second of my life with you. Loved my flowers by Rob Van Helden who did our wedding as well," she captioned the post, which showed the huge glass vase filled with pink, peach and green flowers sat on a counter alongside them.
