COVID-19 pandemic has made many marriages including royal weddings intimate, secretive, and hush-hush affairs. After Princess Beatrice wed quietly in July 2020, there was another royal wedding that took place with no one knowing about it.
It was the wedding of Flora Ogilvy, 25 who wed her beau Timothy Vesterberg. Flora is the granddaughter of the glamorous cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Alexandra.
The intimate royal wedding of Flora Ogilvy
The coronavirus pandemic has thrown cold water at many weddings. Nonetheless, weddings are happening now though not with much pomp and splendor. Princess Beatrice wed Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in July in a small wedding ceremony.
And now the news is that Flora Ogilvy, granddaughter of the glamorous cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Alexandra walked down the aisle with her beau Timothy Versterberg on 26 September 2020. The venue chosen was Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.
At the beginning of the month, Flora announced on her Instagram. She wrote:
“Timothy and I were married privately at Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace on Saturday 26th September,”
She accompanied this with a photo of the pair on their wedding day. Flora added:
“We are truly overjoyed and look forward to celebrating next year,”
So there will be a larger wedding ceremony next year after the coronavirus pandemic wanes off hopefully.
More about the wedding gown and wedding of the couple
Flora’s wedding gown was designed and created by Emilia Wickstead. It had an elegant box neck silhouette and looked chic. For the ears, Flora put some simple but beautiful diamond earrings.
She wore her hair in half-up and half-down styles. While Timothy looked dapper in a double-breasted navy suit. He matched it with a light blue tie and gold cufflinks. He had put a flower in his pocket that was taken from Flora’s white bouquet.
It is not certain whether the cousins of Flora namely Lady Amelia Windsor, Lady Marina Windsor, Lady Gabriella Windsor, Zenouska Mowatt, or Lord Downpatrick were in attendance at the function. The couple did not provide any more details of the wedding.
The relationship timeline of the couple
Town and Country magazine has reported that Flora is an art curator, a consultant, and a speaker. But she usually leads a low-key life. Internet and news outlets rarely write or talk about Flora. And the bridegroom Timothy Vesterberg is from Sweden.
He was a professional ice hockey player but now has switched careers and is an investment banker. In November 2019, Timothy proposed to Flora and she said yes. Flora announced this happy news on her Instagram at that time. She wrote:
‘We’re engaged! My beloved Timothy asked me to marry him and we’re blissfully happy. Photograph by my father @ogilvylandscape. #minälskling.’
Both Flora and Timothy are very private people and do not post much about their private life on their social media accounts.
