There's no doubt that royals are masters of drool-worthy weddings — from Kate Middleton's iconic wedding dress to Princess Diana's legendary nuptials, it's been shown time and time again that royal brides are just the best. And, as Princess Diana's niece Lady Kitty Spencer recently proved, they're also experts at being bridesmaids as well!
Kitty — the eldest child of Diana's younger brother, Earl Spencer, and his first wife, Victoria, grew up in South Africa — rang in the new year with several exciting events, People reports. The aristocrat celebrated both her 25th birthday and the wedding of her friends Lily Kuiper and Paal Stokkelien — an event in which she served as a bridesmaid!
We're used to seeing Kitty's globetrotting adventures via Instagram — she hit up Australia, Florence, Milan, St. Tropez, Ibiza and more international hotspots in 2015 — and, lucky for us, the blue-blood beauty continued her frequent photo documentation at her friend's nuptials. And this elegant affair did not disappoint. The South African wedding was one of the most luxe and glamorous bashes we've seen since Kim and Kanye tied the knot (but think less flower wall and more stunning, natural Cape Town backdrop).

Kitty, who spent her high school and college years in Cape Town, attending the University of Cape Town before getting a masters degree from Regent's University London, according to People, wore a floor-length blush pink gown for the occasion and, while this natural beauty stands out in any crowd, we do have to admit it's a bit hard to find her amidst the sea of bridesmaids and groomsmen — bride and groom had a 20-person wedding party!
Check out all the gorgeous photos below, from super cute bridesmaids breakfasts and getting ready photos to adorable wedding portraits. After seeing the bride's embellished form-fitting wedding dress and gilded flower crown, we have to agree with Kitty on this one, who captioned one of her Instagrams: "What a happy happy day! My favourite couple, Mr & Mrs Stokkelein," she said alongside a photo of the bride and groom walking hand-in-hand down the aisle. "Lilcat, you were the most ethereal, beautiful, fairy bride."
