Prince Harry has kept up his busy schedule after the birth of baby Archie by attending the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston - but without Meghan.

The Queen and other top royals arrived and there was one surprise visitor as Prince Philip was by her side despite limiting his public appearances of late.

The stunning bride arrived wearing a Russian Fringe style diamond tiara also worn by her grandmother, HRH Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent, and her mother, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, on their wedding days.

It also features a six-metre veil.

Arriving at the chapel in a claret coloured vintage car, she was accompanied by her father Prince Michael of Kent.
