The ceremonious event took place on Thursday, November 22, in a concert hall in the upscale Moscow suburb of Barvikha. The king was reportedly elected to the throne in 2016.

Newly wedded Voevodina said: “When I was at school I was a kind of bandit. I liked some skaters, bikes, VMX, guys who took part in competitions. I love riding a bike too. I think that the man must be the head of the family and of course shall not earn less than a woman.”
