The Earl shared his lovely news to Twitter 

It's been an exciting time for the Spencer family, not least because of the marriage of Lady Kitty Spencer last weekend.

Charles' eldest daughter married her new husband Michael Lewis in a lavish three-day celebration in Rome.

However, the 30-year-old broke with tradition and was accompanied down the aisle by her brothers Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and Samuel Aitken, rather than by her father.

On Thursday, Kitty spoke out about her decision as she wrote a loving tribute to her brothers on Instagram.

The new bride sweetly said: "The proudest moment of my life, without a doubt, was having my brothers walk me down the aisle.

"Thank you to our family and friends for the most unforgettable weekend filled with more love and laughter and happiness than I have ever known. It still feels like a dream."

While the reason Charles did not walk Kitty down the aisle hasn't been made public, he revealed in June that he was suffering from a painful shoulder injury that had been affecting his freedom of movement.

Speaking to MSN, the Earl admitted: "It sounds like a pretty feeble excuse but is really quite painful."
