We had Kate, William, Meghan and Harry. It is now the turn of a bride and groom from Gloucestershire to take center stage at the company's wedding of the year.

As the bride's father is one of Britain's richest men and both parents are closest friends of the Queen, Mary Vestey's wedding with fiance Ed Cookson on Saturday will certainly be a great opportunity .

In fact, no one would be surprised to see real royals rub shoulders with Gloucestershire racing royalty on the benches of St. Peter and St. Paul's churches in Northleach when the couple attaches.

The horse-loving fiancée is the youngest daughter of Lord Vestey, former chairman of Cheltenham Racecourse's board of directors and marrying Saturday, according to the Daily Mail.

According to rumors, he is regularly seen in the royal carriage with the queen during equestrian events and is also a close friend of Prince Charles.

Mary is the youngest of Celia Knight's three children, the second wife of Lord Vestey, Prince Harry's godmother and one of the Queen's favorite courtiers.

Mary's older brother, William Vestey, was a Queen's Honor page between 1995 and 1998 and her parents were invited to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Brother Arthur Vestey is well known in circles of society.

After their wedding in the 13th century church known as the Cotswolds Cathedral, guests will head to nearby Stowell Park in the 5,500-acre family estate of Vestey for the reception.

No one would be surprised to see the Queen, who made Lord Vestey Knight the Great Cross of the Victorian Royal Order (GCVO) last year, nor Prince Charles and Camilla at the wedding.

It remains to be seen whether princes William and Harry will return in their childhood to attend the wedding of their close friends.

In any case, the list of guests will necessarily include the big and the good come from all Gloucestershire, as well as all the players of the world of the races.

The bride and groom are both part of the equestrian community of Gloucestershire with the son of a local farmer Ed, a respected jockey, and Mary, a trainer of horses.

Ed's parents have a farm at Upper Slaughter, near Bourton-on-the-Water, where Mary, assistant to future coach Ben Pauling, raises horses.

He also has two daughters, Safran and Flora, whose first wife, Kathryn Eccles. They divorced in 1981 and she died in December 2017.
