BUILDER Gary Lewis became the first Maori to marry into the Royal Family yesterday when he tied the knot with Lady Davina Windsor, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.
Romance blossomed for the 26-year-old royal, 20th in line to the throne, after the two met in Bali four years ago.The couple were married in Kensington Palace’s chapel.
Lewis, 33, comes from Gisborne on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, and has an 11-year-old son from a former relationship.
His father, Larry, was a champion shearer in New Zealand in the 1980s and his mother, Viki Carr, previously worked as a maid.
Lady Davina, whose father is the Queen’s cousin, does not carry out any official royal duties.
The newlyweds are expected to settle in the UK.
