The Queen's cousin, Lord Ivar, 55, came out 2 years ago, 6 years after the end of his 16-year marriage with ex-wife Penny Mountbatten who gave birth to their 3 daughters.

The lord and James exchanged vows in a private chapel on his country estate in Bridwell Park, Uffculme, Devon, in front of 60 guests, including Ivar’s three daughters, The Independent reports.
