Royal Gatecrasher: Charles In Wedding Snaps

A newly married couple in Ayrshire were given an unexpected royal surprise on their big day.

The Prince of Wales was in Ayr for a parade by the Queen's Own Yeomanry, of which he is the Royal Honorary Colonel.

As he was leaving Ayr Town Hall, he crossed paths with Private Barry Rooney and his new wife Kirstie as they were leaving their wedding ceremony at the registrars' office in the same building.

Charles stopped to offer his congratulations to the couple and even posed for photos with them for their wedding album.

Pte Rooney, 28, and his 22-year-old wife, from Patna in East Ayrshire, said: "That was absolutely amazing, we were really shocked.

"Who can say they had their wedding photograph taken with the Prince of Wales?"
