The Duchess of Cornwall's daughter, Laura Parker Bowles, has married a former underwear model at a church ceremony in Wiltshire.

Miss Parker Bowles, 27, tied the knot with Harry Lopes, 30, at St Cyriac's Church in the quaint village of Lacock.

Some 500 well-wishers thronged the streets to watch the arrival of the guests, including Prince Charles and princes Harry and William.

A private reception was held at Camilla Parker Bowles' home near Reybridge.

The ceremony was conducted by a local vicar, the Reverend Sally Wheeler, who has known the bride's family for years.

Prince William was accompanied by his girlfriend Kate Middleton although Prince Harry was without Chelsy Davy. Some 380 guests attended the service.

Among the crowd outside the church was Mike Morgan, 45, who had cycled from the nearby village of Gastard.

"I find the whole media scrum more amusing than anything else. We do not get a lot of this round here," he said.

Miss Parker Bowles studied history at Oxford Brookes University and now manages a London art gallery.

Mr Lopes is the grandson of the late Lord Astor of Hever and studied at Edinburgh University and Eton College.
