Guests including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have attended the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews. Thirty-three-year-old Middleton, who is the younger sister of the duchess, married forty-one-year-old Matthews at St Mark’s Church in Englefield, Berkshire.
The bride was accompanied by her father, Michael, as they arrived for the 45-minute ceremony. The church is a few miles from the Middleton family home in Bucklebury.
There was strict security in place on the estate, with villagers being asked to carry ID on the day, and asked not to speak to the press. But the bride received a rousing cheer from around one hundred royal fans and residents as she arrived.
Prince Harry, Princess Eugenie, and Roger Federer and his wife Mirka were among the guests at the church. The best man was reality TV star Spencer Matthews, the groom’s 28-year-old younger brother.
Miss Middleton’s diamond engagement ring is reported to have cost two hundred and fifty thousand pounds, that’s nearly ten times the budget for the average wedding day. But details of the couple’s wedding bands have not been revealed.
