It is the first time that the Duchess (photo) has been seen since her and Prince Andrew were seen on August 14 from a private jet at the airport of Malaga
It comes after a difficult period for Ferguson, because she was stuck by the 59-year-old Prince in the face of strong criticism of his friendship with the pedophile Epstein.
Ferguson, better known as & # 39; Fergie & # 39 ;, was accompanied at the star-studded event by her daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie as they watched Goulding marry 27-year-old art dealer Caspar Jopling, 27.
Orlando Bloom, his fiancee Katy Perry and Sienna Miller were also there.

Goulding, 32, sang at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wedding party in 2011 – and was also at the wedding of Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank in October.
It is not believed that Prince Andrew was at the ceremony after allegedly going back from a two-week vacation in Spain.
Earlier this month, the Royal was with Ferguson in the luxury resort of Sotogrande in Andalusia when he hid himself from public opinion after the Epstein backlash.
It was reported that she wiped out the prince to take care of & # 39; after it was said he panicked & # 39; after the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein on August 10.
Prince Andrew has had to deal with repeated allegations that he had sex three times with a 17-year-old Virginia Roberts, who is now a 36-year-old married mother of three, named Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
Virginia Roberts was photographed in early 2001 with Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell, although sources near the Prince suggested that the photo could somehow be fake
He strongly denies the allegations of & # 39; impropriety with minors & # 39; and calls them & # 39; categorically false & # 39; and his friends have suggested that he is the victim of & # 39; witch hunt & # 39 ;.
A now infamous photo of the Royal with Miss Roberts shows the prince with his hand on her waist. It is believed that it was taken in London in 2001.
He was also seen with the Epstein in New York in 2010, despite the fact that the pedophile had been in prison and was on the list of sex offenders.
Yesterday Andrew returned to official royal duties and oversaw the celebrations in the Dartmouth Royal Regatta in Devon, of which he is patron.

Prince Andrew looked cheerful when he returned to official royal duties at the Royal Dartmouth Regatta in Devon yesterday
Prince Andrew is patron of the Royal Dartmouth Regatta, which takes place every year in the city of South Devon
This year was the 175th anniversary of the Dartmouth Regatta. It was first visited by a royal in 1856, when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert entered the harbor due to bad weather
It was his first official engagement since Epstein, who was charged with sex trafficking, died behind bars in New York earlier this month, in what the coroner ruled suicide.
Andrew reportedly & # 39; crisis talks & # 39; keep up with his advisors on how to deal with the ongoing scandal.
The duke's appearance came when an astonishing photo of him appeared with Donald and Melania Trump and Epstein at an event in Mr Trump's Palm Beach club Mar-a-Lago in 2000 in Florida.
Mr Trump and Melania pose with Prince Andrew at the same event. Andrew was Epstein & # 39; s guest in Mar-a-Lago, and has been increasingly examined as a result of the allegations against Epstein
The photo also shows Ghislaine Maxwell, who has been accused of helping Epstein buy underage girls for sex.
Miss Roberts, who was currently working as an & # 39; assistant girl & # 39; swimming pool assistant, claimed that Maxwell recruited her a few months later to become a sex slave for Epstein.
Maxwell denies involvement in the Epstein crimes and her whereabouts are currently unknown.
