Prince Charles’s goddaughter India Hicks has revealed her wedding has been postponed for a second time.
India, 53, who is the granddaughter of Prince Philip’s uncle Lord Mountbatten, revealed in November she and former ad executive David Flint Wood had decided to marry after 25 years together.
The couple had originally planned to wed on December 5 but pushed back the date after the romance ‘dipped’ while trying to plan the big day in-line with Covid-19 restrictions.
Now they have been forced to delay their plans for a second time after England was plunged into a second lockdown.

India, who was a bridesmaid at Charles and Diana’s wedding, wrote on Instagram yesterday: ‘Our English winter wedding has been postponed again as the UK is plunged into another lockdown. And it will also be a while before all my kids are together again.’
Miss Hicks had long insisted she had no plans to marry her long-term partner, even after five children together, but revealed her change of heart on Instagram on November 28.
Sharing a photo of the two of them together, she wrote: ‘David and I are getting married.
‘Five children and 25 years later! We quietly decided a few months ago. A celebration of unflinching love. Until death do us part.’
She told the Daily Mail: ‘After months and months of lockdown, many people were ready to kill each other – we were ready to get married.’

Miss Hicks is the daughter of interior designer David Hicks and Lady Pamela Mountbatten, daughter of Prince Philip’s beloved uncle Louis ‘Dickie’ Mountbatten who was portrayed in Netflix’s The Crown. Lady Pamela was a bridesmaid at the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s 1947 wedding.
Miss Hicks had been due to join Lord Mountbatten on the doomed 1979 family boat trip in which he and three others, including his daughter Patricia and grandson Nicholas, were killed by an IRA bomb. She escaped after staying in the family holiday home to watch a film.
Miss Hicks was educated at £40,000-a-year Gordonstoun, near Elgin, Scotland, until she was expelled for inviting boys to her room.

Miss Hicks and her fiance, 59, a former Saatchi & Saatchi executive, moved to the Bahamas in 1996 and have built and restored four houses and a hotel there.
They have four children: Felix, 23, Amory, 21, Conrad, 17, and Domino, 12. The couple also fostered a young Bahamian, Wesley, now 23, after his waitress mother died of cancer.
Despite her family and royal connections, Miss Hicks has worked to earn her keep. Originally a model, she became a designer and businesswoman, launching a luxury lifestyle business before closing it in 2018.
Miss Hicks has coupled her entrepreneurialism with philanthropy, including working with the Global Empowerment Mission, which provides disaster relief to those afflicted by hurricanes and other crises.
She is also a partner of the food bank on Harbour Island, where the family lives.
