Flora Alexandra Ogilvy, 25, tied the knot with financier Timothy Vesterberg at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace. The bride shared a stunning snap on her Instagram account on Thursday, revealing: "We are truly overjoyed and look forward to celebrating next year."

Flora, who is the founder of digital arts platform, Arteviste, looked gorgeous in a white Emilia Wickstead dress with a square cut detailing at the neckline.

Her hair was styled into a pretty half-up, half-down look and accessorised with a pair of circular earrings.

Timothy, who studied at the Stockholm School of Economics, looked smart in a blue suit with a pale blue tie for his wedding day. He and Flora announced their engagement in November 2019.

The happy couple exchanged vows in the venue where Princess Beatrice was originally due to marry Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in May. The pair postponed their nuptials and opted for an intimate ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor in July instead.

Flora is currently 56th in line to the throne, behind her brother Alexander and she has been spotted arriving at the Queen's Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace in previous years.

The young royal attended her cousin Lady Gabriella Windsor's wedding at St George's Chapel in Windsor last May, arriving alongside Lady Amelia Windsor.
