Prince William and Kate Middleton tried hard not to steal the limelight over the weekend when they attended the wedding of the Prince’s cousin, Emily McCorquodale, in Lincolnshire.

Arriving in the picturesque village of Stoke Rochford for the ceremony in a silver Range Rover, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kept a low profile as they mingled with the guests and chatted with the congregation before heading inside the church for the service.

Also in attendance at the service were Prince Harry, Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer and his daughter, lady Kitty Spencer.

The Duchess of Cambridge kept her look low-key, choosing to dress in a Jenny Packham silver and grey marble silk dress, which she first wore during her Royal tour of Canada.

Teaming her dress with a beige Whiteley hat that she wore to last year’s Epsom Races and her favourite pair of L.K. Bennett court shoes, Kate looked as lovely as usual and very demure.

Blushing bride Emily, who is the daughter of Princess Diana’s cousin, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, grew up in the beautiful village where the ceremony took place.

She married former Coldstream Guards Officer James Hutt and looked stunning in a long sleeved white lace bridal gown, which closely resembled Kate’s own lacy Alexander McQueen wedding dress.
