New photos have surfaced showing Lady Kitty Spencer letting loose with friends the day before her lavish wedding in Rome.
Princess Diana’s 30-year-old niece, who married retail millionaire Michael Lewis, 62, in a 17th-century castle on Saturday, spent the days leading up to the ceremony with some of her closest friends touring the Florence area.
It has now been revealed that the group enjoyed a sidecar tour of the surrounding wine country as one of their activities – after an unsuspecting vineyard owner shared photos of their visit.

Kitty and the girls rented a fleet of vintage bicycles with sidecars and stopped at the family-owned Luiano winery in Chianti, where they sampled the wine and toured the estate.
But it wasn’t until the owner saw the radiant bride popping up in local news that he realized she’d been a VIP guest.
Alessandro wrote on Instagram: ‘Happy to host brides from all over the world! We were especially honored to recently host a “special bride” 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 remorseful caption: “If only we had known…”
After a week-long bachelorette party with friends, Kitty kicked off her official pre-wedding events with a rehearsal dinner at the Galleria Del Cardinal, a high-end event space in Rome.

Guests dined on a menu that included 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 over 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 until Monday, when Kitty joined friends, including Pixie Lott and Jade Holland Cooper for lunch, before going out for dinner with her husband and family.

The model spent the week before the wedding with friends, with several messages indicating her marriage was imminent (left of the photo, 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 photo posing in a leopard-print bodycon dress as she posed for a snap on a bridge during a girls’ weekend in Florence.
Kelly Mortimer, the stars’ former wedding planner who oversaw Katherine Jenkins’ 2014 wedding to Andrew Levitas, said that with five custom Dolce and Gabbana dresses, four days of events and the rental of an Italian castle, the bride and groom ‘easily’ reached the £1million mark when it came to costs.
Mortimer, who planned weddings at the Claridges and the Mandarin Oriental in London, among others, for wealthy brides and grooms before starting a company to teach hotels how to host luxury events, told FEMAIL: “With a party wedding involving celebrities, that’s not the case the case’ It doesn’t take much to hit the £1 million mark.
“A band for the evening might cost a quarter of that amount, and if you factor in flowers, meals, and location, you’ll quickly get to six figures, maybe even more.”
DAY ONE: The festivities came after an amazing weekend of wedding events that kicked off with a Friday night rehearsal dinner. Pictured, Lady Kitty on her wedding day on Saturday
