Thousands of people lined the streets of Chester for the wedding of the Duke of Westminster, where the Prince of Wales acted as an usher.

The crowds waited outside Chester Cathedral from early morning to catch a glimpse of the event and cheered as billionaire aristocrat Hugh Grosvenor, 33, and his new bride Olivia Henson, 31, kissed outside after the ceremony.

Just Stop Oil protesters let off orange powder as William left the building with other members of the wedding party, but the two female activists were quickly removed by police while other onlookers booed them.

William, a close friend of Hugh Grosvenor, went through a side entrance, out of the view of many of the crowds, when he arrived on Friday morning.

He stood towards the back of the wedding party as they left the cathedral.

Here is a photo gallery of the happy couple and their wedding guests at today's event, with all photos taken by Simon Warburton.
