Last weekend, the granddaughter of Princess Alexandra, Queen Elizabeth II's first cousin, tied the knot in a private ceremony in London. The bride, Flora Ogilvy, said "I do" to husband Timothy Vesterberg at the Chapel Royal of St. James's Palace. She wore a classic, simple dress by Emilia Wickstead.
Although the nuptials were hush-hush for a few days, the new Mrs. Vesterberg shared the exciting news in an Instagram post this afternoon with a photo from her wedding day. "Timothy and I were married privately at Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace on Saturday 26th September. We are truly overjoyed and look forward to celebrating next year," she wrote in the caption.
The news arrives almost three months after fellow royal bride Princess Beatrice quietly exchanged vows with her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, in Windsor. Only about 20 family members were present for the intimate ceremony, including the queen and Prince Philip. The event was originally expected to be surrounded by greater fanfare in usual royal wedding fashion but was delayed and downsized due to the pandemic. It's unclear who attended the Ogilvy–Vesterberg wedding.

Ogilvy, an art consultant, and Vesterberg, a former professional hockey player from Sweden, first announced their engagement in November 2019. "We're engaged! My beloved Timothy asked me to marry him and we're blissfully happy," Ogilvy said at the time, sharing a similar picture-perfect portrait with her beau.
Ogilvy isn't as much in the public eye as her distant cousins Prince William and Prince Harry, but she has appeared at some royal family events and gatherings, such as the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor in May 2019. Familiar royals like Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, Prince Harry, the queen, and even members of the Middleton family were among the guests.
