The groom played a major part in Harry’s wedding in May as an usher, along with his older brother, Thomas, and was said to have roasted the royal in a humorous reception speech.

Charlie’s older brother, Thomas, is close friends with the Duke of Cambridge and is godfather to Princess Charlotte, three.

Guests clad in summery outfits and morning coats began filing into the church as wedding bells rang one hour before the ceremony began.
