Alnwick Castle wedding

Post by annis » Tue June 25th, 2013, 5:23 am

Those who've read Carol Wensby-Scott's fab Lion of Alnwick series following the fortunes of the Percy family during the Middle Ages, might be interested in this story about a recent wedding at Alnwick, seat of the Dukes of Northumberland - yes, remarkably, having survived all the vicissitudes of history, the Percys are still there.

A veritable who's who of younger royalty and British aristocracy turned out for the high society wedding of Lady Melissa Percy and Prince William's good friend
Thomas van Straubenzee.

Story and lots of pics here:
