James and Sofia wed in 2014 and share a one-year-old son together. 

Meanwhile, during Saturday’s Royal Wedding Prince Harry was close to tears as he saw Meghan Markle in a simple but beautiful pure white dress.

Harry then grabbed his bride’s hand and told her: ‘You look amazing – I missed you’ and said ‘thank you, pa’ after his father Prince Charles walked her down the aisle of St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

The veil was held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, lent to her by The Queen, made in 1932 – an outfit that left her mother Doria Ragland, 62, in tears.

Meghan arrived accompanied by two page boys who held up her train as she made her way up the chapel’s steps alone and entered the chapel by herself, to begin the walk down the alter, before being met by the Prince of Wales.
