Prince Harry was a royal guest of honour at the wedding of Bianca Moore to George McCorquodale – Princess Diana's nephew – over the weekend. The nuptials took place in South Africa, close to where Harry has been spending the summer working on wildlife conservation projects.

The 31-year-old Prince was among the VIP guests at the exclusive Netherwood Farm in KwaZulu-Natal province.

The ceremony took place at 3pm on Saturday 6 August, followed by a lavish reception.

According to George and Bianca's wedding website, "no personal photos or cellphone photography" was allowed, explaining why pictures of Harry have not surfaced.

It was also an "adult only occasion", perhaps explaining why Harry's older brother Prince William, William's wife Kate and the couple's two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, did not attend. The Cambridges are currently enjoying a short holiday in the south of France.

On the website George, who is the only son of Princess Diana's older sister Lady Sarah McCorquodale, is described as "a naughty boy from England" while his bride Bianca is "an innocent angel from Ladysmith".

The couple met in 2011, "destined to meet under the Clifton School bell," and they chose to marry in "the area where all the love began".

The wedding took place in the Midlands, where activities on offer include golf, horse riding, fly fishing, shopping and relaxing at spa hotels.

Lady Kitty Spencer, Earl Spencer's daughter and Princess Diana's niece, also attended the high-society nuptials alongside her siblings. The 25-year-old shared a photo of the sun setting across the Natal Midlands and captioned it: "African sunsets."

Harry has remained close to his late mother's family and recently spoke about his regrets at not talking about Diana's death. Speaking to guests at a BBQ hosted for mental health charity Heads Together, the Prince said: "I really regret not ever talking about it... for the first 28 years of my life".

The fifth-in-line is currently working in Malawi, southern Africa, on an elephant conservation project.
