Who are Lady Kitty Spencer’s parents? Charles Spencer did not walk daughter down the aisle
Lady Kitty Spencer exchanged wedding vows with 62-year-old South African millionaire Michael Lewis on Saturday, July 24. The pair who were dating each other for the past few years celebrated their special day at the Villa Aldobrandini in Frascati, Italy. For the D-day, the 30-year-old niece of Princess Diana wore a high-necked Victorian-inspired lace gown by Dolce and Gabbana.
But the bride chose not to wear the famous Spencer diamond tiara sported by her mother at her 1989 wedding and by her aunt Diana when she said “I do” to Prince Charles in 1981. The special ceremony also missed the presence of Kitty’s parents though her siblings were there to support her. She was walked down the aisle by her brother Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and half-brother Samuel Aitken.
Her twin sisters -- Lady Eliza and Amelia Spencer -- also attended the wedding. Other guests at the wedding were Viscountess Emma Weymouth and her husband Ceawlin Thynn, the Marquess of Bath; pop star Pixie Lott and her model boyfriend Oliver Cheshire; Idris Elba's wife Sabrina; and ‘Made In Chelsea’ star Mark Vandelli. From Lewis' side, his three adult kids were reportedly there. Though none of the family members shared anything about the wedding event on their social media, her friends seemed excited as Vandelli posted some clips and videos from the occasion on his Instagram Stories.
Who are Lady Kitty Spencer’s parents?
Kitty is the daughter of Charles Spencer and his first wife Victoria Aitken. Charles is a British journalist and author, better known as the younger brother of the late Princess Diana, while his former wife is a British former fashion model. Earlier, Kitty used to live with her mother in South Africa before moving to London after signing with Storm Management, a model agency. However, for the past few years, she has been living with her then-boyfriend, Lewis, in a £20 million ($26 million) London mansion.
The 57-year-old father of Kitty on Friday, July 23, posted a photo of the moon over the family's ancestral home, Althorp in Northamptonshire, instead of attending the festivities of his daughter’s wedding that spanned a number of days. While the reason behind Victoria missing her daughter’s wedding is not yet known, it has been said that the restrictions due to the Covid-19 might be the reason behind Charles missing Kitty’s special day. People arriving in Italy reportedly have to quarantine themselves for at least five days.
Besides, Charles recently disclosed that he was suffering from a “painful and unpleasant” shoulder injury, which was making his movement restrictive. In June, he said that due to the injury, he was also advised by his doctors to not join divers on a voyage that would probe one of England’s least-known maritime disasters, the sinking of The White Ship.
The Earl said, “It sounds like a pretty feeble excuse but is really quite painful and unpleasant. I asked my doctor ‘can I dive?’ and he said, ‘only if you want to drown.’ I decided that would be taking the authenticity of the adventure too far.”
