Another royal is getting married!
This year the Queen saw two of her grandchildren, Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie, tie the knot to their respective partners.
Now, it has been revealed that another royal wedding is on the cards next year.
One of the Queen’s goddaughters, Princess Theodora of Greece, has announced her engagement to her American boyfriend, Matthew Kumar.
The 35-year-old is the youngest daughter of King Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece.
In 1974, the monarch was formally abolished in Greece, however, members of the family are still known by their royal titles and mingle within European royal circles.
The bride-to-be announced the news on Instagram along with a sweet photo of her and her fiancé.

"Words can’t express our happiness and excitement. I can’t wait to marry this wonderful man. I love you Matt," she wrote.
Theodora’s parents released a statement expressing their joy over the happy news.
"Their Majesties King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie are delighted to announce the engagement of their youngest daughter Theodora to Mr. Matthew Kumar.
"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 practicing attorney in Los Angeles."
The guest list for the lavish wedding is likely to feature many European royals, including Queen Elizabeth II.
Her Majesty became Theodora’s godmother at her christening in 1983.
If the Queen is unable to attend the wedding, it is expected that Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will go in her place.
Princess Mary will also receive an invitation to the ceremony as her husband, Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik, is Theodora’s cousin.
Theodora was raised in England but moved to America to pursue acting and now goes by the stage name 'Theodora Greece'.
She is best known for playing the character Alison Montgomery on The Bold and the Beautiful.
