For the first time in the family’s history, there will be a same-sex wedding. Queen Elizabeth’s cousin Lord Ivar Mountbatten will marry his partner James Coyle in an intimate ceremony at a private chapel in Devon, England, surrounded by close family and friends.
Lord Ivar came out in 2016 following his 2010 divorce from the mother of his three children, Penny Mountbatten. In his announcement the royal confessed that he had struggled with his sexuality throughout their 16 year marriage.
The wedding has the full blessing of the family.
It’s a first in British royal history!
