Late last week, members of the royal families of Greece and Hannover as well as of the princely house of Monaco were present at St. Moritz for the wedding of Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos II (b.1985) and Russian businesswoman Darya "Dasha" Alexandrovna Zhukova (b.1981). The groom is the son of Philippos Niarchos (b.1954) and his third (and former) wife Victoria Guinness (b.1960) of the Irish brewing dynasty. Stavros II is the paternal grandson of shipping tycoon Stavros Niarchos (1909 - 1996) and his third wife Eugenia Livanos (1927 - 1970). His maternal grandparents are Patrick Benjamin Guinness (1931 - 1965) and Baroness Dolores von Fürstenberg-Hedringen (1936 - 2012). Dasha Zhukova is the former wife of Russian-Israeli billionaire Roman Arkadyevich Abramovich (b.1966), to whom she was married from 2008 until 2017. Stavros and Dasha were civilly married in Paris during October 2019. Their religious ceremony took place on Friday in the Hotel Kulm at St. Moritz, Switzerland.
