“You could see everyone was thrilled to bits”, says local Sue Fidler. “The image of perfection”.
“Grace of God, spirit of life and love, we ask your blessings for Pippa and James and their life together”, the royal mom, 35, read to the congregation.

The young prince stood as the vehicle, also carrying his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, and his sister Princess Charlotte, drove slowly on a private estate.
