Many locals had gathered to see the couple emerge from the cathedral and the sunny weather ensured a decent turnout. The duke arranged for complimentary ice cream, gelato and sorbet from three local independent cafés so that those who wished could join in the celebration. However, there was a brief interruption when protestors from the extremist group Just Stop Oil set off a fire extinguisher in the crowd as the wedding party emerged from the cathedral. They were restrained by police with no further action required.

This evening, the newlyweds will host a lavish reception at the Duke’s estate Eaton Hall located just outside Chester.
