Lady Charlotte is the youngest daughter of Scottish businessman James Lindesay-Bethune, 16th Earl of Lindsay. She married Prince Jaime of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies, the Duke of Noto, in Sicily last month.
The couple live in London but decided to get married in an incredible ceremony at the Cathedral of Monreale, in Sicily.
Lady Charlotte donned an elegant high neck lace bodice wedding gown.
The dress, featuring long sleeves and a full skirt, is by designer Phillipa Lepley.
The bride looked beautiful and finished her wedding look wearing the Earl of Lindsay’s family tiara.
Lady Charlotte donned the stunning tiara from her father the Earl of Lindsay’s family collection.
The pearl and diamond-fringed piece once belonged to Archduchess María Anna of Austria.
The tiara was gifted as a wedding present to the Archduchess María Anna of Austria in 1817.
It was then was passed down for generations but remained in the family until it was sold at auction in 1999.
However, the jewel was bought by Archduchess María Anna’s descendants, the Crociani family.
The Crocianis bought it for their daughter Camilla’s wedding.
Camilla married Prince Carlo of Bourbon-Two Sicilies.
The Royal House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies is a branch of the Spanish royal family established in southern Italy for more than 100 years.
