LONDON — It wasn’t quite a royal wedding, but with Prince William as best man and a Hogwarts castle as the setting it certainly caused a stir in Britain’s media.
William was attending Saturday’s marriage of his close friend, Thomas van Straubenzee, to Melissa Percy, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland.
Prince Harry also attended the event at Alnwick Castle, the bride’s family home, which was used in some of the “Harry Potter” movies.
William’s wife, the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, did not attend — though her sister Pippa Middleton did. Other guests included Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
The Sunday Times and the Sunday Telegraph featured the wedding on their front pages today, calling it the “society wedding of the year.”
