SHE may be 85 but the flamboyant Duchess of Alba still managed to pull some shapes on the dance floor to celebrate her wedding.

The blushing bride, Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart, kicked off her shoes and took to the red carpet to perform flamenco to the delight of the crowd of several hundred who had gathered to wish her well.

The eccentric billionaire married her toyboy lover, civil servant, Alfonso Diez, 60, at her 15th century palace in Sevilla on Wednesday.

She wore a delicate pale pink gown designed by Victorio y Lucchino for her third marriage, which took place in front of 38 guests.

It comes after the twice-widowed duchess – who has a record number of noble titles and is a distant relative of Winston Churchill – divided her fortune between her six children to in August to overcome their objections to her marriage.

And despite the controversy surrounding the day she certainly gave the impression of being a young girl in love.
