While there appeared to be a white dress code, with the majority of the family opting for summer dresses, Michelle stood out with her casual outfit. As usual, the 33-year-old looked stunning wearing pale blue jeans, a black jacket and matching black and white converse. Want to steal Michelle's style?

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, she said: "A few years ago it didn't bother me and I answered the question, but now I think, 'I don't need to answer that because nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors.' I remember when I finished Our Girl, people were like, 'Is it because you’re going off to have a baby?' She continued: "I know for a fact if Mark finished a job, nobody would ask him if he was going to have a baby. It's not fair. It does make me feel frustrated."

If the couple decides to have a baby in the future, however, they have already agreed on one very important decision – the name! Speaking on his Heart Evening Show to Robbie Williams, Mark jokily asked permission for the couple to name their daughter after Robbie's eldest child, Teddy. "I mean she saw a picture I think of you and the family - and said, 'Oh I love that name so much'. I’m asking you if it comes to it and she wants to call the kid Theodora or Teddy, are you gonna be alright with that?"
