Wedding of the Duke of Gloucester

Happy 45th Anniversary to the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, who got married on this day in 1972. When Prince Richard married Danish Birgitte van Deurs, they couple expected a life out of the spotlight. However, after the deaths of his father and brother soon after the wedding, the couple had to step up and take on a large royal role. Today, they remain one of the Queen’s biggest supports, and the most hardworking embers of the family. Take a look at scenes from their simple country wedding at Barnwell Church below-
