It was a day of double celebrations for the Greek royals on Thursday, as it marked the birthdays of Princess Marie-Chantal and her son, Prince Odysseas. Crown Prince Pavlos shared a heartfelt tribute to his wife in honour of the occasion, posting two photos of the fashion designer with the caption: "Happy Birthday to the love of my life."

Prince Pavlos later followed the post with a collage in honour of Prince Odysseas' 16th birthday, including a glimpse at how they may be celebrating, with a stack of glazed dougnuts presented to the teenager for his special day. Another showed Pavlos and Marie-Chantal with their son at what appears to be his christening.

Sharing a wedding photo in honour of their milestone anniversary, Prince Pavlos wrote: "25 years of happiness married to my darling MC. You are the same beautiful, smart & fun person of 25 years ago.

The royal couple were also celebrating their son Prince Odysseas' birthday

Marie-Chantal also posted some sweet photos to mark the anniversary, adding the caption: "25 years ago I married this Gem! Loved every second of my life with you."

The 52-year-old also inadvertently revealed one thing their royal wedding had in common with that of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank – they both chose the same wedding florist, Rob Van Helden, despite their nuptials taking place 23 years apart.
