Is it third time lucky for Princess Di’s little brother?

Just eight weeks after his nephew Prince William wed Catherine Middleton, Princess Diana’s baby brother Earl Spencer has taken his own trip down the aisle – for the third time.

Newlyweds Earl Charles Spencer and Karen Gordon, the new Countess Spencer

Charles Spencer married Canadian philanthropist Karen Gordon in an intimate wedding ceremony at the Spencer family’s ancestral estate in Northamptonshire, UK, where the princess is buried.

Karen, 38, wore a fitted white lace dress, and carried a bouquet of cream and white flowers, while her 47-year-old husband wore a pinstripe suit in navy.

A former model, Karen is the founder of the Whole Child International charity which supports orphans across the globe.

This is Karen’s second marriage and Earl Spencer’s third. Neither William nor Kate attended the nuptials.
