She tweeted afterwards: "Thank you for all your love & support. It's already been such a special day & wanted to share my happiness with you xxx."

The 34-year-old mezzo-soprano, who wore a white gown with a full skirt and a long veil for the ceremony, had to ask Buckingham Palace for permission to fly the Welsh Dragon flag over the historic building, reported the Daily Mirror.

Wedding guests were entertained by a harpist.

The couple went public with their relationship in March when 37-year-old director Andrew accompanied Katherine to Buckingham Palace to collect her OBE. They announced their engagement after six months of dating.
