The Best Photos of the Duke of Westminter and Olivia Henson’s Wedding – Yahoo News Canada

2 minutes, 48 seconds Read

This morning, in what is sure to be one of the most notable society weddings of the year, Hugh Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster, wed Olivia Henson at Chester Cathedral. Prince William was there solo, sans his wife Kate Middleton, who continues to stay out of the public eye as she receives cancer treatment. William’s cousin Princess Eugenie also attended without her husband. Prince Harry, meanwhile, declined the invitation.

As royal reporter Victoria Murphy explained, “Last December, a source confirmed to T&C that Harry and Meghan were not attending the wedding. It is understood they were not snubbed, but that the decision was reached by mutual agreement. There can be no doubt that the presence of both brothers would have dominated the headlines with speculation over the state of their relationship. And Harry does now live on the other side of the world.”

The bride wore a historic Fabergé tiara and a bespoke Emma Victoria Payne dress and veil, and accessorized with blue velvet shoes; the groom added a pop of color to his traditional outfit with a pink tie. Henson, now a Duchess, also carried a bouquet of flowers picked from the gardens of her soon-to-be home, Eaton Hall, where the reception will take place this evening.

Here, see all the best photos from the Duke and Duchess of Westminster’s June wedding:
