The royal office also released an official statement about the engagement. “Their Majesties King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie are delighted to announce the engagement of their youngest daughter Theodora to Mr Matthew Kumar,” it read. “Further details about the forthcoming wedding will be provided in due course. Mr Matthew Kumar, 34, was born and raised in Southern California to Sam and Lonnie Kumar. He is a practising attorney in Los Angeles.”

Theodora is the daughter of King Constantine II of Greece and Queen Anne Marie of Denmark, making her a royal by birth to both countries. While the monarchy no longer exists in Greece, she is still a member of the Danish royal family and recently made appearances in her official royal sash.
