Charles Spencer, brother of late Princess Diana and uncle to royal princes William and Harry, walked down the aisle for the third time on Saturday, June 18. Bride Karen Gordon's wedding gown has some similarities to William's wife Kate Middleton's with the lace details and V neck style.
The intimate wedding took place at the Spencer family home, Althorp in Northhamptonshire where Diana is buried. A spokesman of the family said the affair was private that only close family and close friends attended. However, Prince Harry reportedly missed the service due to "a long-standing private engagement".
The wedding was followed with a lunch reception for around 170 guests, including the Earl's sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes. The newly-weds then reportedly left the grounds of Althorp in helicopter.
Charles announced his engagement to Karen in February. Karen is a charity worker who found the Whole Child International charity while the Earl is a journalist and author who has been married twice before. His first marriage to Victoria Lockwood ended in 1997 after eight years and his second to Caroline Freud also lasted eight years from 2001 to 2009. Karen was married to producer Mark Gordon but split in 2003.
