Surprise royal wedding: royal family celebrate at Princess Beatrice's original venue

> Princess Alexandra’s granddaughter Flora Ogilvy married Timothy Vesterberg in a private ceremony at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace last Saturday

The Queen’s cousin Princess Alexandra had a reason to celebrate this week as one of her four grandchildren got married during a private ceremony last Saturday.

Flora Alexandra Ogilvy, 25, tied the knot with financier Timothy Vesterberg at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace. The bride shared a stunning snap on her Instagram account on Thursday, revealing: “We are truly overjoyed and look forward to celebrating next year.”

Flora, who is the founder of digital arts platform, Arteviste, looked gorgeous in a white Emilia Wickstead dress with a square cut detailing at the neckline.

 

Her hair was styled into a pretty half-up, half-down look and accessorised with a pair of circular earrings.

Timothy, who studied at the Stockholm School of Economics, looked smart in a blue suit with a pale blue tie for his wedding day. He and Flora announced their engagement in November 2019.

The happy couple exchanged vows in the venue where Princess Beatrice was originally due to marry Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in May. The pair postponed their nuptials and opted for an intimate ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor in July instead.

Flora is currently 56th in line to the throne, behind her brother Alexander and she has been spotted arriving at the Queen’s Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace in previous years.

The young royal attended her cousin Lady Gabriella Windsor’s wedding at St George’s Chapel in Windsor last May, arriving alongside Lady Amelia Windsor.

Her grandmother, Princess Alexandra, is the only daughter of Prince George, Duke of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark.

Alexandra’s brothers are Edward, the current Duke of Kent and Prince Michael of Kent and she was the first British Princess to go to an ordinary school in 1947 – Heathfield School near Ascot.

Princess Alexandra married the Hon. Angus James Ogilvy at Westminster Abbey in 1963, and the couple went on to have two children, James and Marina.

Her husband Angus died in 2004, but Alexandra is still a working member of the royal family and has supported the Queen throughout her reign.
