The groom is Andrea Cassiraghi's Uncle in law. He and Tatiana's father are half brothers, though he is closer in age to his niece Tatiana. He was six when his niece was born. There is a 13 year age difference between the bride and groom, he is born in 1977 and she in 1990.

Tatiana was born in November 1983, she's 32.

But the bride, Lady Charlotte, is 25-26, depending on when in 1990 she was born.

I assume this is what you are talking about from my post

I draw your attention to the BOLDED section where it says the BRIDE was born in 1990. The bride is Lady Charlotte. I was not speaking about Tatiana being born in 1990.

Earlier in my post I said that Alejandro (the groom) is closer in age to his niece then her father. Alejandro was born in February 1977, and as you pointed out she was born in November 1983. Which makes my statement that Alejandro was six when his niece was born, true. For the record Tat's dad was born in 1958, meaning he was 19 when his half-brother was born.

Sorry for any confusion, but when I was drawing a comparison between the ages of the bride and groom, I thought it clear enough I wasn't giving Tatiana's year of birth.

Lady Melissa Percy, youngest daughter of the Duke of Northumberland, has been granted a “quickie” divorce from her husband Thomas van Straubenzee

It was a fairytale wedding that brought Alnwick to a standstill in the summer of 2013.

But now wealthy heiress Lady Melissa Percy, 28-year-old youngest daughter of the Duke of Northumberland, has been granted a “quickie” divorce in just 45 seconds from her husband of less than three years Thomas van Straubenzee.

The couple tied the knot in a lavish wedding at St Michael’s Church in June 2013.

It was without doubt the society wedding of the year.

But now District Judge Anne Aitken has said Lady Melissa was “entitled to a decree of divorce” due to her hubby’s “unreasonable behaviour”.

Something must've terribly gone wrong for them to get a quick divorce. I'm sure the Cambridge's, Harry, Chelsy and all their other friends must be sad for them and offering support.

I had read a little that they had a brief split before their engagement cause of his "unreasonable behaviour". Seems there may have be underlying problems for a long time and marriage was not the solution.

So sorry about that, my mistake, I misread your post

'Unreasonable behavior' is a rather vague term....

Yes, there seems to be a pattern of behavior with those two. During their previous split Missy traveled to Thailand with her sister and mother. And now during her divorce preceding she's been living in Japan. If they ever reconcile, hotels in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, and China should be put on notice.
