The Duchess of Cornwall attends society wedding of the year

The Duchess of Cornwall and singer James Blunt were just a few of the famous faces at the wedding of Lady Charlotte Wellesley and financier Alejandro Santo Domingo in Spain on Saturday (May 28).

Lady Charlotte, the daughter of the Duke of Wellington, married Alejandro, a Colombian-American tycoon with a net worth of around $4 billion, at the 16th-century Church of the Incarnation in Illora. The businessman is also the uncle of Tatiana Santo Domingo, wife of Andrea Casiraghi.


Camilla was a guest at the society wedding in Spain.

The Duchess of Cornwall was all smiles as she arrived at the pre-wedding reception, and was dressed conservatively in a blue linen dress which she accessorised with a brown leather clutch bag and cream heels.

Charlotte and Alejandro got engaged in July 2015.

James Blunt attended the event with his wife, Lady Charlotte's cousin Sofia Wellesley. The couple, who married in 2014, looked relaxed together as they greeted family members, and Sofia looked both stylish and laid back with a floral pink floor length gown worn with flat brown sandals, while the "You're Beautiful" singer looked smart in a light blue jacket and yellow tie.

James attended the drinks reception with his wife, Sofia.

The couple, who got engaged last July, were spotted out together in the days leading up to their wedding and looked to be in good spirits as they collected Alejandro's suit for the wedding. Charlotte was also spotted looking happy and excited while leaving her wedding rehearsal, dressing perfectly for the summer in a white linen dress and red espadrilles.

A guest at the pre-wedding drinks reception shared an insight into the glamorous occasion by posting a video of Alejandro kissing Lady Charlotte on Instagram.
