Another royal wedding?

Charles Spencer, Prince William and Prince Harry's uncle – and the younger brother of the late Princess Diana – married Canadian philanthropist Karen Gordon at Spencer's ancestral home in England.

The morning wedding at the private estate in Northamptonshire was attended by close family and friends, a spokesman says.

Gordon wore a sleeveless ivory lace dress and the local Spencer House choir sang a hymn, The Telegraph reports.



The guest list included the ninth Earl Spencer's four children from his first marriage to Victoria Lockwood – Kitty, 20, Eliza, 18, Amelia, 18, and Louis, 16 – and his two from his second marriage to Caroline Freud – Edmund, 7, and Lara, 5 – helped the couple celebrate their big day, reports Hello magazine.

Spencer's nephew William and the Duchess of Cambridge did not attend the ceremony.

This is Spencer's third marriage.

Spencer, 47, and Gordon, 37, who was previously married to Grey's Anatomy producer Mark Gordon, announced their engagement last February, just months before William and Kate became husband and wife.

Spencer attended their April 29 nuptials at the Westminster Abbey, where, just 14 years prior, he gave a controversial eulogy addressing his sister's treatment by the royal family at Princess Diana's funeral.
