Wedding of the year: Sergio Ramos marries Pilar Rubio
15 June 2019 @ 21:18

THEY'RE the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry of Spain – Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, 33 and television reporter Pilar Rubio, 41, will marry today at 17.00 in Sevilla cathedral, the largest in Spain and at the heart of the groom's native city – and millions of Spaniards will be surfing the net hoping to catch sight of the first official photos.

Set to be the biggest nuptials of 2019 and the most eagerly-awaited, with a star-studded guest list, strict dress code and top performers providing the music, Sergio and Pilar will seal their union after seven years and three children together.



The celebrity couple will recite their vows in front of the altarpiece of the Virgen de los Reyes, patron saint of Spain's fourth-largest city, inside its iconic cathedral – a massive tourist attraction and one where King Felipe III, later known as Saint Fernando, lies.

The beautiful temple (second picture) is not only the biggest in Spain but also in the world – 11,520 square metres in size and a UNESCO heritage site since 1987 – and tourists will not be able to enter today because of the ceremony.
