6When did he come out?

Lord Mountbatten made headlines in 2016 when he revealed his sexuality. He said that he is in a loving relationship with a man named James Coyle who is an airline services director. Lord Ivar Mountbatten and Coyle met at a ski resort in Verbier, and have been together since. And have now decided to make their relationship official.

7What Ivar says

Lord Mountbatten says he is pretty secure about his relationship with his boyfriend James. “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,” said Ivar.

8You’ll never believe who’s walking his down the aisle


If you thought Lord Mountbatten and his wife Penelope, also known as Penny are not on good terms, you are very wrong. Not only is his ex-wife happy for him and proud of him, she is also walking his down the aisle during the ceremony. This is a special ritual and Penny’s involvement is an obvious sign of how supportive Lord Ivar’s family is about his choice, even his children.

9What Penelope says

Penelope says that it was suggested by her kids that she should walk their father down the aisle, and also revealed that she is incredibly emotional about it. “I always asked for and demanded complete honesty from Ivar. Perhaps that is a self-destructive part of me, but I wanted to know. I gave him his freedom because I wanted him to be happy,” she said. Her decision to be so involved in her former husband’s next marriage has been applauded by many.

10Details about the big day

Lord Ivar and James both seems pretty excited about his big day as they revealed quite a few details about his wedding, which is surely historic. James revealed that the ceremony will be a low-key one and will be held at the private chapel on Lord Mountbatten's Devon estate. Only friends and family members will be in attendance, and it will be an intimate gathering of 120 people. Though traditional wedding elements like the first dance, or the dance-with-the-father or white doves might not find place in the ceremony, the grooms think they shall have cheese instead of cake.
