Love is definitely in the air for British blue bloods this April, and Prince William took to the skies in celebration as Iona Douglas-Home, a friend from his days at university, said ” I do” to her love, Thomas Hewitt. It was recently revealed that the second in line to the throne, who received Royal Air Force pilot’s wings earlier in the month, flew a helicopter to get to the St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Kelso on time for the 4:30 p.m. ceremony on April 5, 2008. According to The Southern Reporter, the young royal’s brother Prince Harry was also among the 260 guests who witnessed the nuptials.
Following the exchange of vows, Prince Harry and Prince William, along with his lady love Kate Middleton, were among those to wish the newlyweds well during a reception held on the Home family estate, The Hirsel in Coldstream, Berwickshire Scotland.
The recent wedding has been one in a bouquet of bridal-related events linked to the royal family. On April 10, 2008 it was announced that Natalie Hicks-Lobbecke, Prince William’s former girlfriend, is engaged to her Prince Charming, Edward Milbank, while days later Prince Charles and Princess Diana‘s two sons helped their cousin Peter Phillips, who will wed Autumn Kelly on May 17, 2008, say so long to the single life with a bachelor blowout weekend.
