For most people, catching a recent ex locking lips with a Hollywood A-lister would be an unwelcome sight.

But getting dubbed the ‘coolest person in the world’ and partying in castles with models and society sirens certainly seems to be a pretty good consolation prize for Princess Olympia of Greece.

The 27-year-old beauty has been been dubbed the most eligible single in the world in the December 2023 issue of Tatler, just days after her aristocrat ex, Peregrine Pearson, was pictured kissing Sophie Turner. 

‘This young royal is as eligible as they come – especially now, with her razor-sharp peroxide blonde bob,’ the magazine said.

‘This summer has been her single-girl era, flitting around Ibiza, Greece, New York and Notting Hill in sparkly stilettos.’

Maria-Olympia split from Peregrine, son and heir of the 4th Viscount Cowdray, in September. However, they had not been seen in public together since last November (pictured in November in 2022)

This year, the society bible included famous faces not just those in the upper echelons of society.

The ‘modern set’ also features Cruz Beckham, Donna Air’s daughter Freya Aspinall and rugby star Henry Arundell.

Maria-Olympia’s grandfather is King Constantine, a relation of Prince Philip, who was exiled from Greece following the 1967 coup.

The family continue to use their royal titles decades after the abolition of the monarchy.

Maria-Olympia split from Peregrine, son and heir of the 4th Viscount Cowdray, in September, after three years together. However, they had not been seen in public together in the months before their break up.

Friends began whispering about the state of their relationship when the property developer was absent from the Chelsea-based model’s 27th birthday party in July.

She has ‘unfollowed’ Peregrine on Instagram and deleted all traces of him on her account on the picture-sharing social media app.

Meanwhile, Peregrine, whose family has a reputed £224million fortune, was snapped passionately kissing Sophie Turner last week, just one month after her ex Joe Jonas filed for divorce.

Maria-Olympia grew up in the London borough of Chelsea and is known for her glamorous lifestyle

Just hours after the kiss, Sophie was seen smiling as she and Peregrine both arrived ahead of the Rugby World Cup Final match between New Zealand and South Africa

 

Sophie walked a few steps ahead of her beau before going onto the pitch to unveil the World Cup trophy.

The new couple enjoyed a romantic smooch in public, before parting in chauffeur-driven cars and later reunited at the city’s Stade de France.

Peregrine, who has been dubbed Britain’s most eligible bachelor, returned to his £5million pad in Chelsea alone.

Olympia grew up in the London borough of Chelsea and studied Photography at the Parsons School of Design in New York.

She counts Diane von Fürstenberg’s model granddaughter, Princess Talita Natasha von Fürstenberg and the Hilton sisters among her close friends – and is known for her glamorous lifestyle.

Alongside her photography, Olympia also works as a model and has appeared in magazines such as Teen Vogue, Tatler and W.

Olympia is the eldest of Crown Prince Pavlos and Crown Princess Marie Chantal’s five children and the only girl of the bunch.

The family, who have houses in London and in Gloucestershire, spend their summers in Harbour Island, Bahamas, and their winters in Gstaad, Switzerland – where Prince Pavlos proposed to Marie-Chantal on a chair lift in 1994.

Alexandra, Marie-Chantal and their older sister Pia – often referred to as ‘The Miller Sisters’ – all married into very wealthy families; Pia’s ex-husband is Getty Oil heir Christopher Ronald Getty. 

Marie-Chantal has a long history of associating with the rich and famous. Before she married into the royal family, the London-born blonde – whose father was duty-free shopping co-founder Robert Warren Miller – worked for Andy Warhol.

Marie-Chantal began a degree in History of Art at NYU in 1993, but she dropped out after Prince Pavlos proposed to her the following year.

The couple met on a blind date set up by New York investment banker Alecko Papamarkou, a mutual friend who was convinced they would hit it off.

‘We clicked,’ the Princess told Vanity Fair in 2008. ‘It was love at first sight. I knew that he was the person I would marry.’
