The following year, they hosted a religious wedding at the Basilica of San Pedro, in Lima, Peru.

At per Tatler, the guest list for the second, larger wedding ceremony included a number of members of international royalty as well as A-list celebrities, such as British royal sisters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, as well as supermodel Kate Moss. Of course, the ever-stylish Monaco royal family were also in attendance, including Prince Christian’s step-mother Princess Caroline, and his step-siblings Pierre, Andrea and Charlotte Casiraghi, along with their spouses.

Prince Christian of Hanover is second in line to the Hanoverian throne, after his brother, Prince Ernest August. The House of Hanover is a German royal house dating back in 1635 and its members are therefore considered to be of nobility.
