No Clooneys but Rob­bie leads the A-list line-up

Daily Express - - NEWS - By Cyril Dixon

A HOST of celebri­ties added some ex­tra star qual­ity to yes­ter­day’s royal pro­ceed­ings

Singer Rob­bie Wil­liams is so close to Princess Eu­ge­nie that she calls him “the brother she never had”.

Rob­bie 44, looked ex­cited as he ar­rived at the chapel with his ac­tress wife Ayda, 39, on one arm and her mother Gwen Field on the other.

Other stars at the cer­e­mony in­cluded mod­els Kate Moss and Naomi Camp­bell, Hol­ly­wood stars Demi Moore and Liv Tyler.

But there was no sign of Ge­orge and Amal Clooney, who were guests at Prince Harry’s wed­ding to Meghan Markle in the sum­mer and were tipped to at­tend yes­ter­day.

Clooney founded Casami­gos – the drinks firm where bride­groom Jack Brooks­bank works as a tequila brand am­bas­sador – with Cindy Craw­ford’s hus­band Rande Ger­ber.

Kate, 44, ar­rived with her part­ner Count Niko­lai von Bis­marck, and her daugh­ter Lila Grace by mag­a­zine ed­i­tor Jef­fer­son Hack.

Model Pixie Geldof, daugh­ter of Sir Bob Geldof and his late wife Paula, was among the first of the fa­mous faces to ar­rive.

She ar­rived with hus­band Ge­orge Bar­nett, drum­mer with rock band These New Pu­ri­tans, fol­lowed shortly af­ter by co­me­dian Jimmy Carr and his girl­friend Karo­line Cop­ping.

Later on, singer El­lie Gould­ing, a good friend of Eu­ge­nie, who per­formed Your Song at Prince Wil­liam and Kate’s 2011 wed­ding, ap­peared.

She ar­rived in the same coach as fel­low singer James Blunt and his wife Sofia Welles­ley.

Down­ton Abbey cre­ator and Tory peer Ju­lian Fel­lowes was an early ar­rival, ac­com­pa­nied by his wife Emma Joy Kitch­ener. Sir Richard Bran­son’s chil­dren Sam and Holly were also among the guests.

Prince Harry’s former girl­friends Cres­sida Bonas and Chelsy Davy were also in at­ten­dance.

Former Liver­pool foot­baller Jamie Red­knapp ar­rived alone and Stephen Fry was also among the 850 guests, which in­cluded Latin signer Ricky Martin and model Cara Delev­ingne, who wore a black tai­lored suit with tails.
