Lizzie who finished fifth in the road race at the recent Rio Olympics, was accompanied up the aisle by her flower girls and bridesmaids, who donned full-length dresses in varying shades of green - thought to be a nod to Philip's Irish roots.
About now, Lizzie Armitstead should have been gearing up for the publication of her autobiography.
She had been staying in the team hotel, but when the UKAD official arrived at 6am the receptionist refused to give out her room number and, as her mobile was on silent, they left.
The second she has always claimed was down to an administrative error which caused her to give her address as Monaco rather than Leeds.
After being cleared to ride the Games at the final hour following a successful court appeal to overturn an alleged missed drugs test, the ensuing leak and backlash threatened to engulf her.
That was a race which Armitstead left with not only a gold medal hanging around her neck, but the confidence to dictate a race.Unlucky for some, it’s appropriately entitled All The Roads Have Potholes and deals with those missed drugs tests which last year saw Armitstead facing a four year ban under the sport’s ‘three strikes and you’re out’ rule.Her appeal against one of the missed tests was subsequently upheld, but the furore overshadowed the 28-year-old’s Rio Olympics and in the minds of many cast doubts on both her past achievements and her future in the sport.Lizzie Armitstead is self-aware enough to know which chapter of her new autobiography readers will turn to first.Having flicked through the opening few paragraphs about the photographs she has stuck on the wall of her Monaco apartment to remind her of home and having bypassed the bit about how she was talent spotted while a student at Prince Henry’s Grammar School in Otley, most will turn straight to chapter 13.
