Princes Harry and William’s trip to Graceland in the US to attend Guy Pelly’s wedding might have slipped under the media radar, if it wasn’t for Harry’s recent breakup. As it stands, however, both Harry and his ex, Cressida Bonas, are now under intense media scrutiny. While several online outlets are speculating on Bonas’ behavior during her “compassionate leave” from work, Harry was tending to his friend duties over in Tennessee. The prince and his brother the Duke of Cambridge attended the wedding of their close friend Guy Pelly to Elizabeth ‘Lizzy’ Wilson, the granddaughter of the Holiday Inn hotel empire founder.
Under the media's intense gaze, Harry travelled to Memphis to attend the wedding of the year.
The guest list for the high-profile wedding also included Princess Charlotte and Princess Eugenie, the Daily Mail reports. The guests attended an airy lakeside reception in Memphis. The bride, Elizabeth ‘Lizzy’ Wilson, the granddaughter of the Holiday Inn hotel empire founder. arrived in a powder blue Thunderbird vintage car wearing an elegant white lace dress, believed to be by Jenny Packham, and holding a bouquet of white peas with a head dress also made of white flowers. The couple said their vows outside in the open air, under an arch, decorated with roses and sweet peas.
The bride, groom and their guests were serenaded by a choir of young boys, while a female singer gave a rendition of Amazing Grace.
Before the nuptials, Nicole Davis, a local cellist booked to perform, wrote on Twitter that she was nervous but ‘you can’t go wrong with four cellos’.
