Royal Family members absent at first ever Gay Marriage in ruling British monarchy

The British Royal Family has got its first same-sex marriage after Lord Ivar Mountbatten married his partner James Coyle on Saturday.

The 55-year-old Lord Ivar, who is a cousin of The Queen, came out 2 years ago, 6 years after the end of his 16-year marriage with ex-wife Penny Mountbatten which saw the birth of their 3 daughters.

The lord and James exchanged vows in a private chapel on his country estate in Bridwell Park, Uffculme, Devon, in front of 60 guests, including Ivar’s three daughters, The Independent reports.

Despite his royal connections, there were no immediate members of the royal family in attendance, but he is said to have received lots of good wishes and congratulations, most notably from his long-term friend Prince Edward.

Lord Ivar was given out by his ex-wife, Penny.
