The Duchess of York, also affectionately known as Fergie, looked in good spirits as smiled and waved when she arrived in York Minster Cathedral this afternoon. Sarah Ferguson, 59, was joined by Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice at the A-list wedding of the popstar and art dealer Caspar Jopling, 27.

Sarah and her daughters’ were greeted by Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank – who was one of the groomsmen.

But there was no sign of her ex-husband Prince Andrew. 

Prince Harry’s ex girlfriend Cressida Bonas was also in attendance with her new fiance Harry Wentworth-Stanley.

Goulding performed at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding party in 2011 and, with her fiance, was a guest at Princess Eugenie’s marriage last October.

The newlyweds shared a kiss on the steps of York Minster – moments after marrying in front of a star-studded congregation.

The chart-topper wore a traditional bespoke wedding gown with a veil and train designed by Natacha Ramsay-Levi for Chloe, while Mr Jopling opted for a suit from Savile Row tailors Huntsman.

The lavish event was attended by an extensive guest list of royals, actors, musicians and TV personalities.

The crowds also cheered and waved as the first coach-load of guests arrived.

Goulding and Mr Jopling have been together for more than two years and announced their engagement with a formal notice in The Times a year ago.

Mr Jopling’s father is the Honorable Nicholas Jopling, of Frickley Hall, near Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

After the wedding was formally announced last year, Goulding said she was looking forward to being a “loved-up wife”.

In a post to her 14 million followers on Instagram, she shared a black and white photo of herself kissing a smiling Mr Jopling on the cheek.

The star wrote in a caption alongside the photo: “I tend to keep my life very private these days and I have enjoyed the time I’ve had away from all the madness.

“But we’ve had so many beautiful messages of support and love the past few days, as have our families, that we wanted to say thank you so much! We appreciate it more than you could ever know.”

Addressing Mr Jopling, she added: “You’re the most wonderful person I’ve ever known, and I can’t wait to be your very giggly, in awe and loved-up wife.”

Goulding and Mr Jopling are thought to have been an item since early 2017.

The singer, known for her hits including Starry Eyed, Burn and Your Song, is believed to have moved in with Mr Jopling in June last year.

She has previously been in relationships with McFly star Dougie Poynter, radio presenter Greg James, DJ Skrillex and actor Jeremy Irvine, and she is also rumoured to have dated singer Ed Sheeran.
