Isn't Earl Spencer supposed to marry Karen Gordon on June 18, at Althorp?

Wonder if there will be any photos?

Hopefully 3rd time will be the charm for him. Good luck to Charles and his bride.

So Earl Spencer's wedding is supposed to be today! It's supposed to be attended only by family and close friends.

(Wonder if William or Harry will attend? I doubt it, or we would have read something about it. The DM said that William's wedding was the first time he and Harry had talked with their uncle since Diana's funeral).

I find it difficult to believe the DM is correct in stating that Princes William and Harry have not spoken to Earl Spencer for almost fourteen years. (But then again, I find much of what the DM prints non-credible.) Would they visit their Mother's grave and ignore their uncle? Possible, but not probable, IMHO.

I join with the others on this thread wishing the Earl the best of luck on his third try. I hope he has found his soulmate, at last. Out of all the Spencers, he seems to have more of Diana's needy emotional characteristics than Sarah or Jane.

In any event - I'm wishing them a joyous day at Althorp and many happy days to come!

Charles Spencer's new "amour" Karen Gordon is said to be a "Canadian Charity Worker" for "Whole Child International".

Wow he really did it. I must say I am a bit surprised (given the broken engagements) but she looks lovely. Hope it works out for them.

Hate to be nasty on what should be a glorious wedding day but given his track record

She does. During his nephew's wedding I couldn't see her face under that hat

Well, neither of the princes attended the wedding at Althorp, so that hardly suggests a warm relationship.

(I know it was a small wedding, but it wasn't all that small if they had 170 guests).

Yes, you'd think he'd look a bit cheerier at least for the official picture! Although, I must say, I was recently looking at the proofs sent to us by our wedding photographer (15.5 years ago), and I'm astounded by how grim I look. I think it was because I was taking the whole thing very seriously, because it certainly wasn't because I wasn't happy. The picture that I look absolutely gleeful in is the one taken with all our young nephews. It's the only picture I show my teeth in!!! And my husband looks serious in all pictures except when people catch him off-guard, even though he's a man with a great sense of humour.

I can't help noticing that in the single wedding picture that the bride was not wearing the Spencer tiara. Any speculation as to why? The Earl's first wife wore it on their wedding day and the tiara should be in his possession.

Two things come to mind, possibly she wore it but removed it for the picture or possibly she declined to wear since it's his 3rd marriage and I believe her second and she just didn't want to....I'm totally guessing

I don't think that it was a formal-enough wedding for a tiara. A tiara would make sense with a morning suit or white tie, but not with the groom in a business suit.

That does make sense. I just couldn't imagine why the Earl made such a big fuss about getting the tiara back from Diana and yet his new bride did not wear it. We'll have to wait for a formal occasion before the new Countess Spencer gets to show it off.

The new countess is stunning.
William and Kate did not attend the wedding due to his work commitments at the Royal Air Force Valley in Anglesey. Prince Harry also missed the service due to "a long-standing private engagement".

It was stated that Earl and Countess Spencer plan to live mostly in the USA.
I was surprised to hear that; who will live at Althorp?
Or will he lease it, like the Gloucesters leased Barnwell Manor?
