Princess Marie-Chantal shared a throwback photo of her wedding ahead of her 20th anniversary



Royal watchers were keen to note the number of blue-blooded guests in the picture – the wedding brought the largest gathering of royalty to London since Queen Elizabeth II married Prince Philip in 1947 and more crowned heads were in attendance than at Prince Charles and Diana Spencer's wedding.

Naturally the groom's parents King Constantine of Greece and Queen Anne-Marie looked on with pride, as did his siblings Princess Alexia, Prince Nikolaos, Princess Theodora and Prince Philippos.
