The Wedding of Alexandra Knatchbull and Thomas Hooper

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh attended the wedding of The Hon. Alexandra Knatchbull and Mr. Thomas Hooper at Romsey Abbey, Romsey, Hampshire.

The "society wedding of the year" belongs to Alexandra Knatchbull, great-granddaughter of the late Earl Mountbatten. The ties of family and friendship run deep between her family and the royals, as demonstrated by a guest list including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Princess Royal, Princess Alexandra of Kent, Queen Sofia of Spain, King Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, and Jordan's Prince Hassan bin Talal and Princess Sarvath El Hassan.

The Prince of Wales walked the bride down the aisle, and she wore the Mountbatten Star Tiara. The Queen wore one of her favorite brooches of late, Singapore Peranakan Diamond Jubilee Brooch.
