Ms Bowie added: “It was such a departure from her first wedding, the gown was that tutor style gown with the trumpet sleeves and the very high neck and fitted bodice.

“It showed off the tiara, she rewore her mother’s wedding day tiara too.

“So this time just a white knee-length dress under a high neck white suit jacket. She had white flowers in her hair and her bouquet was just a spray of white Heather.
