New photographs have emerged showing Lady Kitty Spencer letting loose with friends in the day before her lavish Rome wedding.
Princess Diana’s niece, 30, who wed retail millionaire Michael Lewis, 62, at a 17th century castle on Saturday, spent the days leading up to the ceremony travelling around the Florence region with some of her closest girlfriends.
Now it has been revealed the group enjoyed a sidecar tour of the surrounding wine country as one of their activities – after an unsuspecting vineyard owner shared photos from their visit.

Kitty and the girls hired a fleet of vintage bikes with sidecars and stopped off at family-owned Luiano winery in Chianti where they sampled the wine and were given a tour of the estate.
But it was only when the owner saw the radiant bride pop up in local news coverage that he realised she had been a VIP guest.
Writing on Instagram, Alessandro posted: ‘Delighted to host brides from all over the world! We were especially honored to host a “special bride” recently for her pre-wedding celebrations. We look forward to welcoming more brides to Luiano!’
Separate photos of Kitty Spencer on her wedding day were shared with the rueful caption: ‘If only we knew…’
After a week-long hen party with friends, Kitty started her official pre-wedding events with a rehearsal dinner at the Galleria Del Cardinal, a high-end events space in Rome.

Guests dined on a menu including a classic veal and tuna salad, beef broth and pumpkin cream ravioli and baked eggplant.
The wedding took place on Saturday at the £20,000-a-day Villa Aurelia which offers panoramic views of Rome.
On Sunday guests returned for a post-wedding lunch at the property which also served as the venue for the wedding of Meghan Markle’s BFF Misha Nonoo and oil heir Mikey Hess in September 2019.
The fun continued into Monday, with Kitty joining friends including Pixie Lott and Jade Holland Cooper for lunch, before stepping out with her husband and family for dinner.

The model spent the week before the wedding with friends, with several going on to share posts that hinted that her nuptials may be imminent (pictured left, one shared a post captioned: ‘Team Bride’, and right, Mark Francis tagged Kitty in Rome, writing: ‘So it begins…’
Earlier this week, Kitty shared a photograph posing in a leopard print bodycon dress as she posed for a snap on a bridge during a girl’s weekend in Florence
Former wedding planner to the stars, Kelly Mortimer, who oversaw Katherine Jenkins’ 2014 wedding to Andrew Levitas, said with five bespoke Dolce and Gabbana dresses, four days of events and the hire of an Italian castle, the bride and groom would have ‘easily hit the £1million mark’ when it came to costs.
Mortimer, who planned weddings at the likes of Claridges and the Mandarin Oriental in London for well-heeled brides and grooms before launching a business teaching hotels how to host luxury events, told FEMAIL: ‘With a society wedding with celebrities involved, it doesn’t take much to hit the £1million mark.
‘A band for the evening might cost a quarter of that figure, and when you factor in the flowers, meals and venue, you can quickly hit six figures, perhaps even more.’
