21

Wedding of Princess Katherine of Greece and Denmark, youngest sister of King George II, King Alexander, and King Paul of Greece, Queen Helen of Romania, and Princess Irene, Duchess of Aosta (one-time Queen of Croatia), and Major Richard Brandram at the Royal Palace of Athens on this day in 1947. Coming just weeks after the death of her brother, King George II, the wedding was a restrained affair. Royal Attendees included King Paul (brother) and Queen Frederica of Greece (sister-in-law, wearing her Ruby Pendant), Princess Irene, Duchess of Aosta (sister) and Prince Aimone, Duke of Aosta (brother-in-law), Princess Sofia (niece, now Queen Sofia of Spain), Prince Constantine (nephew, now King Constantine II of Greece), and Princess Irene (niece), Princess Andrew of Greece (aunt) and Princess Nicholas of Greece (aunt). The couple settled in the United Kingdom, where King George VI granted her the rank and title of a duke’s daughter she was styled as Lady Katherine Brandram. They had one son and remained happily married until his death in 1994. Lady Katherine was the last surviving great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria until her death in 2007.
