Irish schoolteacher Lucy Lanigan O'Keeffe joined the British royal family's most senior members in her first official appearance since announcing her engagement to one of Prince William's closest friends.

Ms Lanigan O'Keeffe (31), from Thomastown, Co Kilkenny, is an assistant head teacher at St Thomas's in Battersea, the primary school which Prince George and Princess Charlotte both attend. She also teaches outdoor learning and mindfulness.

Last June, their engagement was announced and it's believed they will exchange vows this summer.
