Royal Shock: Buckingham Palace confirms a royal divorce!


The British royal family has a long list of royal pairs getting divorced. And now, there is a new addition to that royal list of divorce.

Lady Davina Windsor and her husband, Gary Lewis have split after 14 years long marriage. A spokesperson from Buckingham Palace confirmed the news to The Royal UK.

The confirmation came with a short message, stating: “Lady Davina and Gary Lewis are divorced”. The couple met during a trip to Bali in the year 2000 and married at the private chapel at Kensington Palace in the year 2004. New Zealand-born Gary was the first person of Māori descent to marry into the royal family.

The royal couple went on to welcome two children, Senna Kowhai and Tane Mahuta.

Lady Davina is daughter to Her Majesty’s first cousin, the Duke of Gloucester. She is 30th in line to the British throne. Davina and Gary lived in Auckland for some time during their marriage. They were speculated on leading quite a low-key life. However, the couple has appeared at the Trooping the Colour ceremony in the past.

Although, the reports claim that their differences in background may have been one of the main reasons behind there split. The couple’s wedding was a sweet, understated occasion, with the bride wearing a simple gown with lace sleeves. She was carrying a bouquet of beautiful blue florals. Those florals were also pinned in her blonde hair.

At the time, a royal aide told to the reporters: “They just wanted a really low-key intimate affair. And so, that’s how it all happened”. Gary is also father to a 26-year-old son from a previous relationship. It is thought that Davina is still residing in London with her children following the divorce.
