The cousin to Her royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Lord Ivar Mountbatten is due to become the first person in the extended royal family to enter into a same-sex marriage. Lord Ivar is set to marry his longterm partner, James Coyle, and will be given away by his ex-wife, Penny.
Lord Ivar has been married before with 3 beautiful daughters. His daughters has been supportive of his partner and wanting to get married to a man.
In a recent interview about the forthcoming nuptials, Lord Ivar revealed the following:
“I really wanted to do it for James. He hasn’t been married. For me, what’s interesting is I don’t need to get married because I’ve been there, done that and have my wonderful children; but I’m pushing it because I think it’s important for him. James hasn’t had the stable life I have. I want to be able to give you that.”
It will be a small intimate wedding with close family and friends. While it remains unclear if any member of the royal family will be in attendance, it’s known that the Queen supports the LGBTQ community.
