Princess Beatrice's ex David Clark weds in Puglia - two years after their split

Princess Beatrice's ex-boyfriend of 10 years wed in a lavish ceremony in Italy over the weekend.

Beatrice dated David Clark for a decade before ending their relationship in 2016, reportedly over an ultimatum to marry her, and he exchanged vows with American advertising executive Lynn Anderson in a dreamy ceremony in Puglia. The beachside ceremony came complete with fire dancers and customised desserts were typically lavish for the tech executive who was once part of the upper echelons of the British royal family.

Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande's manager, was among the guests in attendance, who shared a photo of the couple during their first dance on Instagram; while Victoria's Secret Angela Sara Sampaio also gave a few behind the scenes glimpses of their big day.

Anderson's relationship with Clark was made public three months after he split with Beatrice and they were engaged just another few months after that.

Beatrice and David were introduced by Prince William during a study abroad program at the University of Edinburgh, but over time, it was reported that William didn't approve of her choice of partner, and he didn't receive an invite to 2011's royal wedding.

"After ten years together, Beatrice and Dave had to wonder why they were not married," a source told the Daily Mail at the time of their split.

"They talked it through and decided to take time apart to reflect on the future. They remain friends and the decision to break up was mutual."
