 The couple married in 2014 at the Basilica Santa Maria in Trastevere in Rome, with the bride sporting a breathtaking ivory Valentino gown.

The guestlist was awash with royalty and aristocracy, including the UK's very own Princess Beatrice. Interestingly, Prince Andrew's daughter attended the wedding in Valentino too, a blush number she also wore for Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding.

This year, the UK also celebrated a new baby born into the royal family – Princess Eugenie's second son, Ernest.

In June, the royal announced the lovely news on Instagram.
