On the weekend Lady Kitty Spencer, 30, got married to her fashion billionaire beau Michael Lewis, 62, in a stunning ceremony in Italy.

The glamorous wedding took place at Villa Aldobrandini in Rome, where the beautiful bride wore not one, but five different dresses designed by Italian duo, Dolce & Gabbana, surrounded by her friends and family.

Lady Kitty Spencer is Princess Diana’s niece, and so the wedding left some fans wondering why Prince William and Prince Harry weren’t in attendance.

Lady Kitty attended both of their respective weddings in 2012 and 2018, but the brothers weren’t seen at hers.

Prince William and Prince Harry are both parents too, with Harry recently welcoming baby Lilibet, so it is believed their parenting duties came into play as well.

It has also recently been reported that Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are on parental leave following Lilibet's birth.

Italian law currently requires those entering the country to isolate for five days, and with William and Kate’s royal duties and children it’s believed this is why the couple couldn’t attend on this occasion.

The niece of Princess Diana was walked down the aisle by her two brothers, Viscount Althorp and Sam Aitken, instead of her dad, Earl Charles Spencer, after he was sadly forced to stay in the UK due to a shoulder injury.

The rest of Kitty’s family managed to make it though as well as plenty of her friends, from Pixie Lott and her boyfriend, Oliver Cheshire, to the Marchioness of Bath.

Half brother Sam shared a snap on his Instagram a few days prior to the wedding showing that himself and other family members, including Kitty’s mum, Victoria Aitken, her twin sisters, Lady Amelia and Lady Eliza, and their two partners were all present for the big day.


Pixie Lott and her model boyfriend, Oliver Cheshire, also flew over for the special occasion.

Taking to his Instagram Oliver wrote: “Feels good to travel again!” followed by the heart eyes emoji, along with a series of snaps showing him and Pixie enjoying their remaining time exploring the city.

Jade Holland Cooper, founder of the luxury fashion label, Holland and Cooper, also joined the happy couple at the villa.
