While I can’t admit to being a huge royal-family fan beyond appreciating Kate Middleton’s hair, I think we can all agree that it’s bad form to pass up an opportunity to meet an actual princess. So, when Her Royal Highness Princess Tatiana of Greece and Denmark visited New York to promote her new cookbook, A Taste of Greece, I willingly obliged.
After a little digging, I discovered she was an events planner for Diane von Furstenberg before marrying Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark, son of King Constantine II of Greece and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, who reigned over the country until 1973, when the monarchy was abolished—she also wears an actual crown 👑 to some events. She shared a few other surprising things, including her thoughts about Justin Bieber, the emoji she uses most, her middle name (yep, it gets even longer!), and her first celebrity crush. Keep scrolling to learn 21 random facts about an actual princess.
