Another historic moment for the royal family!
This year was full of great celebrations for the royal family: the queen celebrated the 65th anniversary of her coronation, Prince Williams and Kate Middleton welcomed their third son and second son, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle they married
But summer will bring another royal wedding (not that of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank), and it will be historic.
The cousin of the queen, Lord Ivar Mountbatten will marry long-time companion James Coyle, making history as the first gay marriage in the history of the royal family.
The first member of the extended royal family to have a gay wedding spoke to the Daily Mail about his upcoming nuptials: "I really wanted to do it for James, he has not been married. I do not need to get married because I've been there, done that and I have my wonderful children, but I'm pushing it because I think it's important for him James has not had the stable life that I have, I want to be able to give you that. "
Mountbatten was married to Penny with whom he shares three daughters, Ella, 22, Alix, 20 and Luli, 15. Mountbatten also told the store that his daughters could not be more excited about the wedding.
"When I mentioned it to our oldest daughter, Ella, she said," Oh Pap, it's not a big deal, it's so normal nowadays. "Of course that generation, they are completely cool about the concept of this … We will pronounce ourselves as partners in the marriage, but the ceremony itself will be very small, it is only for the girls and the relatives and close friends ".
This wedding will be held later this summer in a private chapel in Devon, England.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
