The surprise royal weddings continue! After Princess Beatrice tied the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this summer in a small, previously unannounced ceremony, Flora Alexandra Ogilvy and her beau Timothy Vesterberg did the same, saying “I do” in a private event at the Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace.

“Timothy and I were married privately at Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace on Saturday 26th September,” she announced in an Instagram post, sharing a photo from her wedding day. “We are truly overjoyed and look forward to celebrating next year.”

The bride chose a sleek, square-necked dress from Emilia Wickstead—a British brand popular among her fellow royals, including Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle—for her big day. She paired it with drop earrings, an elegant half-up hairstyle, and a simple bouquet of white flowers. For his part, the groom wore a double-breasted navy suit with a light blue tie and gold cufflinks, and finished off his look with a white boutonniere, matching Flora’s bouquet.

Flora is the granddaughter of Princess Alexandra, Queen Elizabeth’s first cousin—making her the Queen’s first cousin twice removed. She works as an art curator, speaker, and consultant.

She first announced her engagement to Timothy almost a year ago, in November 2019. To celebrate, she shared a photo of herself and her fiancé, taken by her father James Ogilvy. “My beloved Timothy asked me to marry him and we’re blissfully happy,” she wrote in a caption.
