It’s been a year of weddings for Prince Harry’s ex girlfriend Cressida Bonas who looked thrilled to be attending the nuptials of friend Ellie Goulding, 32, and her art-dealer beau Caspar Jopling, 27, today.
Cressida, 30, who announced her own engagement to Harry Wentworth-Stanley last week was seen arriving at York Minster Cathedral wearing a non-traditionally white maxi-dress.
The white ensemble, patterned with red flowers along with a matching red fascinator, tan wedges and a black velvet blazer was not the only outfit of the day to match with the bride – as Ellie chose to dress her seven bridesmaids in white floor length dresses.

Despite members of the royal family being in attendance at the British singer’s wedding ceremony, Princess Beatrice, 31, and her boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Cressida and Ellie’s ex Prince Harry was not present.
Harry and Cressida dated from 2012 until 2014, while bride Ellie Goulding is believed to have dated prince Harry in June 2016.

There is no bad blood between the exes with Cressida among the guests at St George’s Chapel for Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May last year.
Ellie Goulding is also believed to have been invited to the nuptials but did not attend.
Last week royal insiders revealing that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were ‘expected to attend’ Cressida’s wedding to Harry Wentworth-Stanley, which is likely to take place early next year.
However it is unclear whether Meghan would accept an invitation as she ‘is known to feel less comfortable’ with Harry’s ex-girlfriends, a royal expert told The Sun.

‘Harry is also very friendly with the bridegroom’s mother, Clare Milford Haven.’
Asked about the Duchess of Sussex, Mr Helliker went on: ‘Meghan is known to feel less comfortable with his Harry’s former girlfriends, particularly Chelsy Davy.’
