Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend Stoke Rochford wedding


By Grantham Reporter


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were seen smiling and laughing on Saturday as they attended his cousin's wedding in Stoke Rochford - with the bride wearing Princess Diana's tiara.

The new Duchess of Sussex wore a long-sleeved blue-and-white paisley shirt dress and white fascinator at the wedding of Princess Diana's niece, Ceila McCorquodale - exactly four weeks after her big day.

Celia, who is the younger daughter of the Princess of Wales' sister Lady Sarah McCorquodale, looked beautiful in a lace-bodiced dress and a full veil, held in place by the stunning diamond tiara worn by Princess Diana at her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981.

Celia, 29, attended Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding exactly a month ago and she returned the favour by inviting the couple to her country wedding to George Woodhouse at St Andrew and St Mary's Church in Stoke Rochford.

Harry and Meghan looked delighted to be at the occasion as they arrived at the church holding hands and smiling and laughing with the other guests.

Prince Harry was dressed in a morning suit, with a Royal blue tie to match Meghan's dress. Her dark hair was neatly pinned up and she wore white high heels and carried a small white clutch bag.

The pair were greeted by the Spencer family, with Prince Harry's cousin, Louis Spencer, 24, who was recently dubbed Britain's most eligible bachelor, giving him a bear hug and kissing Meghan on the cheek.

The bride arrived at the church in a vintage 1910 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost and walked into the church on the arm of her father, Neil McCorquodale. Her bridal train was carried by a flower girl and she was accompanied by an array of bridesmaids. She carried a bouquet featuring white roses.

Other guests included Princess Diana's brother Earl Charles Spencer and her sister Lady Jane Fellowes, who did a reading for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at their wedding.

Prince Harry's cousin, Lady Kitty Spencer, 27, who is an aspiring model, was also at the wedding wearing a floral dress. Prince William and his family did not attend the wedding.

The ceremony lasted around 45 minutes and afterwards the wedding guests were invited back to a reception at Celia's parents' home nearby.
